As the construction industry rapidly continues to adopt technology and Building Information Modeling practices, we need to ensure that Construction Management curriculum prepares students for what is expected after graduation. Cal Poly’s Construction Management program currently have two Building Information Modeling courses in the curriculum that focus mainly on learning software and while this will be essential for students graduating the Construction Management program, there remains room to improve the courses as the industry adapts. Adding curriculum geared more toward managing the BIM process and learning process optimization skills will not only benefit a higher percentage of students, but will also keep the Construction Management program’s courses up to date.
