Digitalisation is the single most significant change factor of our age. The built environment sector is the largest sector in most countries and is a key factor in the process of creating sustainable value, both for the client and for society. This programme gives you the knowledge needed to use and manage efficient product realisation processes supported by digital technologies in the built environment sector to create sustainability. This includes modelling, simulation, analysis, optimisation, visualisation, sharing, communicating, organising and managing processes for digitally driven value creation.
The sector is responsible for the realisation of the complex and very individualised products that make up the built environment, i.e. buildings, lighting systems, roads and water and sewer networks. Digitalisation in the built environment has entailed major developments and new applications.
There is a need for engineers who have specialist knowledge concerning Building Information Management (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and the implementation of these technologies in the product realisation process. Graduates from the programme will support businesses and organisations in the built environment sector to integrate the steps in the product and production chain as well as contribute with the expertise needed for companies to remain competitive on both local and global basis.
The knowledge you gain will help you find work as a BIM engineer, BIM coordinator or BIM manager. Many of these roles did not exist until recently but are now considered key positions in many companies.
The School of Engineering, Jönköping University, is a member of the prestigious collaborative between leading engineering schools worldwide - the CDIO Initiative™. The CDIO Initiative is an innovative educational framework to conceive and develop a new vision of engineering education and for producing the next generation of engineers. More information, see CDIO
In this program you have eight weeks of internship in a company or another organisation. The purpose is to get you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education.
All courses are conducted in English and you study together with other international students. There are possibilities for you to study one semester abroad at one of our partner universities.
After completing the programme, you will be qualified for positions with companies in need of experts who can use and manage modern computing and information technology like BIM and GIS in the built environment sector.
The knowledge received in the programme will enhance the careers of existing professionals and create new career paths for young professionals, for example as a BIM engineer, BIM coordinator and BIM manager. Many of these roles did not exist until recently, but are now considered key positions in many companies.
