This master's programme aims to develop the knowledge, skills and experience needed to use and manage modern digital technologies, for example BIM and GIS in the built environment sector to create sustainable values. This includes modelling, simulation, analysis, optimization, visualization, sharing, communicating and managing information, processes and organizations.
The built environment sector is the largest single sector in most countries. The sector is responsible for the realization of the complex and very individualized products that make up the built environment, i.e. buildings, lighting systems, roads and water and sewer networks. Digitalization in the built environment has entailed major developments and new applications.
There is a need for engineers who have specialist knowledge concerning Building Information Management (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and the implementation of these technologies in the product realization process. Graduates from the programme will support businesses and organizations in the built environment sector to integrate the steps in the product and production chain as well as contribute with the expertise needed for companies to remain competitive on both local and global basis.
All courses are conducted in English and you study together with other international students. There are possibilities for you to study one semester abroad at one of our partner universities.
In this course you have five weeks of internship in a company or another organization. The purpose is to you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education.
After completing the programme, you will be qualified for positions with companies in need of experts who can use and manage modern computing and information technology like BIM and GIS in the built environment sector. The knowledge received in the programme will enhance the careers of existing professionals and create new career paths for young professionals, e.g. as a BIM engineer, BIM coordinator and BIM manager. Many of these roles did not exist until recently, but are now considered key positions in many companies.
The School of Engineering, Jönköping University, is a member of the prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide - the CDIO Initiative™.
