School of Multidisciplinary Technologies at Technological University (TU) Springs into action


The School of Multidisciplinary Technologies at Technological University (TU) Dublin has successfully secured Springboard funding for their BSc (Hons) in BIM (Digital Construction) and Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Construction Analytics / Engineering Analytics courses for the academic year 2021-22.

The Springboard+ upskilling initiative offers free and subsidised courses at certificate, degree, and master’s level leading to qualifications in areas where there are employment opportunities in the economy. The focus of the one-year part-time Level 8 BSc (Hons) in BIM (Digital Construction) is as a re-skilling programme that addresses a significant market deficit for construction professionals by providing them with the ability to use BIM technologies in discipline-specific modelling multidisciplinary coordination contexts. The one-year part-time Level 9 Postgraduate Certificate in Digital Construction Analytics / Engineering Analytics programme provides professionals with prior Engineering or Construction knowledge with the skills to maximise the value of their understanding of industry data by learning the skills to analyse & interpret this information using the power of analytics and machine learning techniques. Both courses will commence in January and can be applied for via the Springboard AM portal.

The School of Multidisciplinary Technologies at TU Dublin also has self-funded places available for their award-winning MSc in applied Building Information Modelling and Management course (2.5 years). The course is structured so applicants can exit or progress at the end of each year with either a Postgraduate Certificate in BIM Technologies (1 year)  or Postgraduate Diploma in Collaborative BIM (2 years). This programme builds on individuals’ discipline-specific knowledge and enables upskilling for individuals seeking to expand their knowledge regarding the new construction paradigm of collaborative BIM.

The programmes specialise in breaking down barriers between construction disciplines and enabling professionals to work within a multidisciplinary, collaborative design and management process via project- and task-based learning.  The design and delivery of the courses is based on international standards and associated professional guidance. Past alumni are now some of the leading Digital Construction professionals in the Irish and European AEC sectors. Applications can be made through the TU Dublin Postgraduate admissions portal.
