Extract

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is changing the way projects are constructed. This emerging practice requires new mind-sets and technological know-how in order to achieve significant im-provements in building efficiency. Universities must focus on the strategy of using BIM as an innovative technology to allow the acqui-sition of new skills by students and prepare them for their future activ-ity in a more competitive world. Based on this perspective, the text presents some educational measures on offer at the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture of the University of Lisbon. It fo-cuses on the importance of teaching BIM: the involvement of students in research projects, PhD theses and MSc dissertations, and the dis-semination of BIM through professional short courses and workshops addressed to the AEC community outside the school. Some of these have already been carried out in the school; others are presently being proposed or currently in progress. It is clear from this paper that school is an important driver for the growth of BIM knowledge and practice through the preparation of new and existing professionals.
