Presentation

BIM Project Management incorporates the knowledge and interdisciplinary tools that enable organised and coordinated interaction between all those involved (professionals, materials and people), thereby interlinking networks of knowledge and networks of practices.

The Postgraduate Degree in BIM Project Management provides the skills to lead multidisciplinary teams and coordinate projects that are essential in the professional arena, while responding to sustainability criteria in the development of space design.

The postgraduate degree is based on the role of the PMP (Project Management Professional) as it applies to BIM and the Design of Sustainable Spaces, providing a response to the professional scenario with active participation from the various actors, materials, processes and impacts required by individuals who lead processes and perform information management. Furthermore, it provides cross-disciplinary training that equips designers with tools to manage and coordinate the material, technical and social processes that are involved in BIM projects for the design of sustainable spaces.

The postgraduate degree employs a virtual training methodology developed by professionals who are experts in new learning systems. This educational system is based on innovation for change and enables the theoretical and practical study of analysis and research that is shared from all over the world, 24 hours a day. In a complementary way, it is planned to teach some workshops with streaming broadcast.

The programme provides the required expertise to pass the exams and acquire the PMP (Project Management Professional) certificates awarded by the Project Management Institute (PMI) as per the PMBOK guide. 

The sector’s most innovative software in terms of managing and directing projects and companies will be used based on sustainability criteria. Planning concepts will be developed according to a methodology involving design thinking, circular economy, collaborative processes and sustainability in companies, among other elements.

Students will have the opportunity to review and access the scientific journals from the Project Management and Sustainability sector included in the JCR (Journal Citation Reports) quality indicator. 

Likewise, during the postgraduate degree, students will complete cross-disciplinary and research internships with the goal of providing a professional exercise within the sector that will further their professional careers. Moreover, if they so desire, students can become part of the work exchange and receive interesting offers.

Programme

Module 1 - BIM and LEAN. Sustainable management of space design

BIM and LEAN are redesigning the way we consider and analyse improving construction processes, optimising the system and the project as a whole. Project Management employs real data applied using scientific methods to tackle all the stages and procedures involved in the development of a project. Sustainability in space design is addressed both from the material, ethical and social components and its application through BIM. 

  • Sustainable management in space design.  
  • Sustainable strategic definition in project coordination (stakeholder management). 
  • LEAN BIM construction, work methodology and tools. The ISO 19650 standard in space design. 

 

Module 2 - Sustainable strategic definition and planning of BIM

As an agent of social and business transformation, the designer defines the strategy for the management of space design projects through collaborative projects in the circular economy. The module is structured around learning about project management by understanding and applying the different phases of analysis of the strategy for planning and coordinating a space design project with integrated management of the various phases of the project, the scheduling, and the management of the work teams. All measurements are coordinated and planned through BIM and budgets are calculated for subsequent accurate evaluation of the projects. 

  • Systems thinking and change management. Planning and management platforms. Risk management. 
  • BIM coordination and sustainable design. BIM AsBuilt. Validation models and model preparation.  
  • Circular economy applied to collaborative projects. Cost management and investment analysis. 
  • BIM planning of measurement and budgets. 

 

Module 3 - Collaborative methodologies for the design of spaces in BIM

Management will be taught through management and research methodologies for developing projects in BIM; from financial evaluation (quantitative and qualitative research methods), cost management and the analysis of investments in the circular economy applied to collaborative projects, to the management of multidisciplinary projects with agile methodologies for space design projects and their proper subsequent inclusion in the projects. Instrumental, strategic, technical and human knowledge will be acquired, establishing a new more efficient and sustainable way of working. 

  • Collaborative methodologies in BIM. Methodologies and research for the development of projects with Design Thinking. 
  • Agile Project Management. Scrum.  
  • Coordination and planning in multidisciplinary teams. Design for all. Design and coordination of teams (BIM 360). BIM and collaborative projects. BIM Execution Plan (BEP). 

 

Module 4 - Leading a company in the BIM environment 

The biggest challenge of the 20th century is sustainable company management as a leadership skill based on the new standards of user-centric business models from User-Centred Design (UCD). Students will learn how to coordinate collaborative teams by defining the affected areas within the company in an effort to understand how to manage projects involving both small and large work teams through a BIM environment. New business processes will be covered as a catalyst of innovation, while considering ethical and CSR procedures. 

  • Leadership skills in CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) sustainable business management.  
  • Management and leadership of a company and projects in the BIM environment (PMBok. PMP certification). 
  • Lean startup. New business models. UCD (User-Centred Design). 
  • Financial assessment of projects. IPD (Integrated Project Delivery).  

 

Module 5 - Innovation in marketing and communication in space design

Students will work on methods of compiling, analysing and interpreting data to carry out, through different marketing and communication systems, space design projects that will help them to promote themselves to clients and companies. Mechanisms of experiential marketing and community life will be implemented with a view towards the ethical and responsible use of marketing and communication. 

  • Context, ecosystem and market analysis. 
  • Creative communication in space design. Branding. 
  • Strategic marketing.  
  • Smart thinking to address projects and businesses.
