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.
Bond’s innovative Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery has been informed by industry and designed to meet the needs of Government and industry. The knowledge you’ll gain will be current and relevant. That means you can be optimally prepared for opportunities in an environment where Government and private clients alike increasingly require major construction and infrastructure projects to be delivered using modern Building Information Modelling (BIM) within an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) environment. Bond’s Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery comprises eight subjects. You have full flexibility to complete the entire program, or choose subjects that will best position you for advancement in your career, and that flexibility is just a small example of how this program has been informed by industry collaboration and engagement.
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
The program not only covers the to-be-expected topics of 3D BIM, 4D BIM (scheduling) and 5D BIM (cost), it also addresses the industry-identified subjects of Intellectual Property Rights in the BIM environment, design for energy efficiency, consideration during design of post-completion facilities management, and use of BIM in integration with Geographic Information Systems (GIS). In other words, it addresses all aspects of the buildingSMART Australasia BIM Framework, and more, to better position you in the construction and infrastructure environment of the future.
To complement the BIM management skills taught, this program also presents cutting-edge coverage of the core principles of Lean Construction, which can position you to lead your contracting organisation to reduce costs and increase profits using the strategic and methodical elimination of all manner of waste during the design and construction process. Finally, the Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery will enhance your knowledge of a broad range of aspects of integrated project delivery, including advanced relationship based contracting, and project quality control and process improvement methodologies.
- Developed in collaboration with industry to meet demands of government and industry
- Subjects for each of the eight modules that make up the program, plus a Graduate Certificate on successful completion of all program subjects
- Flexible program delivery – your choice of subjects or completion of the full program
- You can complete in a single semester
- Highly practical and interactive learning
- 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 course is the equivalent of forty post graduate credit points.
To meet the requirements of industry professionals, the program is delivered by a series of micro-credentialed modules, each comprising a two day learning intensive and a one day learning intensive, and has the objective of preparing industry professionals to be better qualified to work in their professions as BIM, Lean and/or IPD managers, rather than as specialist IT specialist technicians for the niche areas of the technologies covered by the curriculum.
The program components have been designed to 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.
This program will provide students with an opportunity to gain and comprehend the knowledge necessary to contribute within their professional areas as BIM/Lean/IPD qualified team members and leaders. Show less

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.
