Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange)


In any field, the professionals who stay ahead of trends in terms of problem avoidance or solving, are those who are likely to be the most successful. The Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange) course is designed to provide that career competitive advantage for professionals in the rapidly developing fields of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Lean Construction (Lean) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD).

The major projects of the future will be delivered using openBIM and IPD, and the smart contractors of the future will deliver projects using Lean Construction. Such projects will introduce benefits for competent professionals, providing they demonstrate a solid understanding of the complexities of the integration of these delivery systems.

This subject provides useful knowledge regarding a range of Intellectual Property rights that may be encountered in a construction environment involving openBIM and IPD. It also covers the impacts of BIM/Lean/IPD on contract administration, including an understanding of clauses professionals should have in contracts to avoid the pitfalls.  

The Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange) is one of eight specialised BIM microcredentials available. 


  1. Delivered by industry experts, this course is delivered over a three (3) day workshop.
  2. On-campus participants will be provided with an exclusive welcome session prior to commencing the first workshop.
  3. Successfully completing the course will equip participants with a microcredential digital certificate.
  4. This microcredential aligns with the 5-credit point subject, Intellectual Property Rights (Data Exchange) (SSUD70-302) in the Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery. The microcredential may qualify for credit towards a Bond University Program. Review the full course outline including details of all assessments required.
