STAND OUT with a qualification in BIM & IPD
The upcoming semester for this program will be delivered in a multi-modal format, with classes designed to support and engage all learners. Whether they’re on campus or abroad, all students will be able to access Bond’s exceptional and personalised learning experience through dynamic and interactive lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and lab sessions.
Our Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery, informed by industry to meet the needs of Government and immerses you in the current knowledge you need to optimally prepare for anticipated opportunities in Construction and infrastructure development.
Government and private clients alike are increasingly requiring major construction and infrastructure projects to be delivered using modern Building Information Modelling (BIM) within an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) environment. This equates to enhanced career opportunities for people who are appropriately qualified to manage projects delivered within those frameworks.
Bond’s Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery commences with eight subject modules covering topics confirmed as essential to success in the field by industry professionals. Four additional subjects are then reinforced by an intensive and highly practical four-subject capstone project to complete the program.
Statement of Endorsement:
“Our accreditation experts were impressed by the thoroughness of the Bond University programs’ preparation, the scope, breadth of coverage, structure and the emphasis on practical application of knowledge. They also noted the obvious enthusiasm, level of expertise, experience and academic qualifications of the teaching staff.”
- David Mitchell, Chairperson, buildingSMART Australasia | The Home of BIM
The Bond BIM Difference
In your first semester, you will not only cover 3D BIM, 4D BIM (scheduling) and 5D BIM (cost) – all essential knowledge areas for a successful career in the management of Building Information Modelling - but also Intellectual Property Rights in the BIM environment, management of design for energy efficiency, consideration during design of post-completion facilities management, and use of BIM in integration with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) – confirmed by industry leaders as knowledge areas in demand.
You will next gain advanced knowledge of project process engineering and change, continuous process improvement, advanced Lean Construction and principles of advanced integrated project delivery, and these will all be reinforced with an end-of-second-trimester capstone project. The capstone is continued at the commencement of your final semester, further enhancing and reinforcing all knowledge gained thus far, and the course concludes with interactive subjects covering BIM and IPD aspects of maximising project value using off site fabrication and managing complexity and minimising waste. Industry professionals have confirmed the relevance of this program content to the current and anticipated future of construction generally, and that means you will be qualified to take advantage of opportunities arising from the rapidly increasing demand for BIM and IPD managed projects, especially in the Government sector.
This program positions you to contribute significantly to your consulting or contracting organization as a BIM and IPD manager, reducing costs and increasing profits. It provides you with knowledge and practice in the management of in-demand skills, sort after by government and industry – Providing you with a competitive edge in the industry.
- Developed in collaboration with industry to meet demands of government and industry
- Subjects for each of the eight introductory modules form the foundation for advanced studies and practical experience leading to successful completion of this Masters program
- You can complete in just three trimesters (that is 1 year full-time)
- Highly practical and interactive learning, with studio based capstone projects to reinforce assimilation of knowledge, and convert it to finely honed management skills for practical application in the BIM and IPD environments
- All assessment (formative assessment) within course attendance times
About the program
This cutting edge program has been designed in strong collaboration with industry to assist construction and other built environment professionals to upskill in order to comply with the stringent practice requirements being demanded by government and knowledgeable private sector clients regarding the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction Practice (Lean) and Integrated Project delivery (IPD) in optimised construction project delivery.

This cutting edge program has been designed in strong collaboration with industry to assist construction and other built environment professionals to upskill in order to comply with the stringent practice requirements being demanded by government and knowledgeable private sector clients regarding the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction Practice (Lean) and Integrated Project delivery (IPD) in optimised construction project delivery.
The Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery program prepares students for advanced involvement as relevant BIM/Lean/IPD Managers in their work environment, for the benefit of projects and their stakeholders.
The program is delivered in intensive mode and has the objective of preparing industry professionals to serve as BIM/Lean/IPD managers. While the course does cover various BIM-related technologies, it does not prepare students to be specialist technicians in the niche areas of the technologies covered by the curriculum. The program includes a capstone subject (40 credit points) in which students work on a realistic BIM/Lean/IPD project that requires application, analysis and synthesis of complex ‘project’ data. Limited placement opportunites may be available based on required performance criteria.
The program components align with the BIM Framework of buildingSMART Australasia, the open standards of buildingSMART International, the principles espoused by the Lean Construction Institutes of Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and internationally recognised principles of IPD.

How to apply
The Queensland Government recently decided that all infrastructure projects costing more than $50m are to be delivered using Building Information Modelling.
This is just one indicator that the design and delivery of construction and infrastructure projects is moving to another level, and that means opportunity can be expected to increase. Increasingly, clients are requiring that their medium and large construction and infrastructure projects be delivered using Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery systems. Bond’s suite of postgraduate programs in Building Information Modelling ((BIM) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) has been designed to prepare you to serve the immediate and long-term needs of government and industry as they continue to develop infrastructure and construction projects for the benefit of community.
