INCLUSION OF BUILDING INFORMATION MODELING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIGITAL COMPETENCIES FOR THE BUILDING ENGINEERING DEGREE

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has become a constant presence in our daily lives. This technology is accessible at any time and in any place: we are “hyper-connected”. As a consequence, our ways of communication and learning are changing. The challenge of training the citizens of the XXI century involves incorporating the use of ICT-based competences to the teaching-learning process. Therefore technology and collaborative creativity are two key drivers of change to the structures and requirements of the working environment. However ICT-based learning requires a different approach rather than just the addition of content. Networked learning, connectivity and interactivity, self-learning, and collaborative creativity should be the principles on which this learning should be based.
Recognising that Technology is a key driver of change, the curriculum of the Building Engineering Degree should be revised and adapted to address technological changes. Since February 2014 the Spanish Construction Industry has been subject to EU Directive 2014/24/UE, is intended to modernize European Government procurement and to reduce costs in the 28 EU member states. This directive allows members states to encourage, specify and even require the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) for construction projects financed by EU public funds from 2016.
The QBIMInvest Project supported by the Universidad Europea de Madrid, has recently carried out a survey, which is the subject of this communication, on the implementation of Digital Competencies in the Building Engineering degree. This study also gathers the opinions of the Technology and Building Management department members, to evaluate the need to extend the scope of the existing subject competencies to include BIM skills as a significant tool in the curriculum.
