University College London (UCL) Engineering is expanding its curriculum to include the geomatics aspects of building information modeling (BIM) and the integrated management of geospatial and BIM-related data. The new masters program in Geomatics for BIM builds on UCL Engineering's experience in laser scanning, geographic information science, photogrammetry and 3D imaging. The program introduces students to real-world applications of BIM, along with leading edge 3D GIS and BIM-related research.
Other universities also offer courses aimed at the cross-disciplinary area where geospatial and architecture, engineering and constrcution (AEC) converge. The College of Architecture and the Built Environment at Philadelphia University offers a M.S. in GeoDesign. The University of Southern California's Spatial Sciences Institute offers a B.S. in GeoDesign.
