Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished higher education in Bachelor's degree programme.
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VSB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The aim of the study is to satisfy the demand of practice for experts who are able to work with ICT technologies that are used in construction, know the processes across the life cycle of buildings, i.e. in the phase of preparation of capital construction, design, implementation, and in the field of facility management in the phase of operation and use of constructions, lead and connect experts from individual fields, or meet the investor's requirements for BIM, if they are part of the assignment. In terms of content, the study program is designed to meet the requirements of: - Act No. 111/1998 Coll., on Higher Education Institutions and on Amendments to Other Acts, as amended regulations (hereinafter referred to as the “Higher Education Act”), - Government Order No. 274/2016 Coll., on standards for accreditation in higher education, - Government Decree No. 275/2016 Coll., on the areas of education in higher education, and all this in accordance with the methodological materials of the Board of the National Accreditation Office for Higher Education and the documents of the University of Mining - Technical University of Ostrava (hereinafter "VŠB-TUO") and the Faculty of Civil Engineering VŠB-TUO. The study program is being taught in both the Czech and English languages in full-time and part-time form of study and is intended for graduates of bachelor's study programs at university and non-university technical universities in the Czech Republic and in the EU. The content of the course builds mainly on the knowledge of graduates of the four-year bachelor's degree program in Civil Engineering at the Faculty of Civil Engineering VŠB-TUO. The study program also enables the mobility of students and the completion of part of the study at other selected universities with a similar focus. After successfully passing the final state examination, the graduate is entitled to use the title "engineer" (abbreviated to Ing.).
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The graduate knows: - processes in individual phases of the life cycle of buildings in relation to the BIM method, - theoretical background and wider context of the use of the BIM method in all phases of the life cycle of buildings, - ways and possibilities of using BIM models in simulation and decision-making processes, - needs for preparation, planning, implementation and management of construction by BIM method, - processes in facility management and knows how to effectively use the BIM model for their management.
The graduate is able to apply the theoretical basis of their specialization, ie, masters the concept of BIM (Building Information Modeling), prepares an investment order in software tools supporting the BIM method, works with data and graphics model, over which simulates and analyzes model situations, manages processes within life cycle of buildings and especially those in the phase of operation and use (facility management), coordinates and manages completed orders in BIM, applies the basic requirements of operation and use of construction works in relation to planning and process management in CAFM systems over data obtained from the BIM model (facility management), can move in the phases of preparation, planning, implementation and operation and use of construction works.
General competencies:
At the same time, other competencies of the future graduate include soft skills. The graduate speaks English, has managerial skills, takes responsibility and solves problems independently, effectively manages time (time management), effectively communicates with other participants in the BIM project.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
The graduate of the master's program BIM engineering will find employment mainly in companies designing and implementing constructions using the BIM method or in companies providing facility management and comprehensive care for real estate using BIM. The graduate will be theoretically equipped for follow-up doctoral studies at the Faculty of Civil Engineering VŠB-TU Ostrava or at other faculties of civil engineering in the Czech Republic and abroad. Subsequently, the graduate can deepen his / her professional education within the offer of lifelong learning.
