Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery

Program overview

Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Integrated Project Delivery represent the future of the construction industry.  

Developed in response to the challenge of lost productivity, budget blow-outs, time over-runs and waste that plagued major construction projects, IPD is a way of managing projects so that every member of the building team – owner, architect, contractors, engineers, fabricators, and subcontractors – work collaboratively throughout the construction process. 

The sharing of information between these team members is made easier by the growing use of BIM – a process of creating and managing information on a construction project whereby every aspect of the build asset has a digital description that becomes part of the ‘model’. 

Three of Australia’s state governments have committed to spending $215 billion on infrastructure within a BIM framework before the end of the decade. Private sector organisations are also now specifying that their medium and large construction projects should be delivered using BIM, Lean Construction and IPD. 

Bond’s Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery is a cutting-edge program which has been designed in close collaboration with industry to prepare graduates for leadership roles in consultancies, client organisations and contracting organisations.  

The program components align with the frameworks and standards of the industry’s leading professional bodies in Australia, the UK and the USA. 

Studying a full-time study load, the Master’s qualification can be completed in just one year with Bond’s accelerated trimester schedule. Microcredentials are also available for each of the eight introductory modules, which are presented as professional short courses over a three-day weekend.

Graduate Certificate in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)

About this 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.

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.

What you'll be studying

  • Study Outline

    The Master of BIM and IPD comprises 120 credit points made up of eight 5 credit point modules; four 10 credit point subjects; and one 40 credit point capstone project.

Program features

  • Practial and interactive

    Bond’s teaching combines essential theory with integrated practice in a studio-like learning environment where you are working on challenging, real-world practical tasks.

  • By industry for industry

    The program has been designed in close consultation with the leading industry authorities and practitioners to meet the increased demand for professionals with qualifications in BIM, Lean construction and IPD.

  • Taught by experts

    Our BIM and IPD subjects are taught by people who don’t just work in the industry but are leaders in their field. In our small group, discussion-based classes, you will be mentored by people like Toby Maple who is implementing BIM at Atlassian’s new Australian headquarters and at organisations like Woolworths Limited and Queensland Health; former BIM/Asset Integration lead for BHP, Pieter Rautenbach; and building SMART Australasia chair, David Mitchell.

  • Award-winning facilities

    You will be studying in state of the art facilities designed specifically to promote engagement and collaboration in order to maximise your education outcomes.

Hear from our Bondies

  • Master of Building Information Modelling and Integrated Project Delivery

    Intensive mode delivery meant that I was able to maintain a presence at work and really focus when studying on campus. It felt like a three-day-long brainstorming session with an industry expert! My fellow students were also from industry so it was a fluid, relaxed environment where we could ask questions, have an interactive learning experience, and contribute to each other's knowledge base. The calibre of lecturers is really high, and work for companies that are well known in the industry.
