About this microcredential

Build upon your Building Information Modelling (BIM) knowledge with 3D-BIM (Modelling for Data and Visualisation).

This microcredential introduces the concepts of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) and covers various software platforms suitable for openBIM application, and appropriate for Lean Construction and Integrated Project Delivery.

This course is taught from a practical applications perspective in a highly interactive environment, and is dedicated to covering BIM-related software platforms and their integration in accordance with openBIM principles. It investigates the impacts of AR and VR on Lean Construction and Integrated Project Delivery, and reviews their relevance in the context of the buildingSMART Australasia BIM Framework.

The Foundations of Intelligent Construction (OpenBIM) is one of four specialised microcredentials available. 


  1. Delivered by industry experts, this course is delivered over a three (3) day on-campus workshop.
