Abstract

The introduction of BIM has created a revolution in the construction industry, where sophisticated technology was used in all the construction life cycle. Recent government requests for inclusive BIM application have led to a strong interest in BIM implementation and, creating a huge demand for BIM's skilled workforce. In addressing the current demand of the industry, it is crucial for the higher education institution to integrated BIM modules into their Quantity Surveying degree programme. However, there is a significant challenge for the higher education institution in educating future professionals due to the lack of information on the right strategies to embed BIM in their curricula. Thus, this research was carried out to identify the suitable teaching strategies for incorporating BIM into the curricula. Case study research method was adopted, involving 5 Malaysian higher education institutions that offer a degree in Quantity Surveying programme. Findings revealed that lecture, workshop, collaboration, open learning platform and project-based learning can be used incorporating BIM into the curricula. It is anticipated that findings from this research will serve as a guide for other courses mainly in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction field that seeks to integrate BIM into their curricula in transforming the Malaysia construction industry into a higher level. © 2020, Construction Research Institute of Malaysia.
