VDC / BIM education referrals request

  • 1.  VDC / BIM education referrals request

    Posted 06-21-2020 14:55
    Hello everyone. I am actively seeking an accredited online Masters degree program with a strong emphasis in VDC / BIM.
    I found a few institutions in the UK and Spain.
    Any recommendations?
    If this is a subject of interest I will follow-up with my findings.

    Hi Ivan,

    For a more thorough understanding of the VDC courses and the M.S. program at Columbia University, you may choose to reach out to the admissions counselor.  Her name is Suzanne Wolfinger: sw3441@columbia.edu.

    You may also contact Michele Trizzino.  She is the Assistant Director of Administration of the Construction Administration program.  Her contact info is: mt3163@columbia.edu | 212-853-1939

    Best,
