VDC / BIM education referrals request

  • 1.  VDC / BIM education referrals request

    Posted 06-21-2020 14:56
    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,

    The link below will take you to more info regarding Stanford's CIFE VDC certificate program. This is a great program for VDC and does a really great job of diving into VDC in a comprehensive manner and does well to balance processes and people with BIM and tech. I'm open to discussing this further with you as well, just let me know.
