Erasmus Mundus Scholarships for Master in Building Information Modelling in Europe 2022

The European Union offers Scholarships for the Erasmus Mundus Master in Building Information Modelling (BIM A+) in 2022.

BIM A+ is a European Master in Building Information Modelling. BIM A+ will have its first edition in 2019/2020 as an Erasmus Mundus Masters Course, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.

The objective of BIM A+ is to offer an advanced education programme on BIM integrated design, construction and operation processes, with a strong focus on the collaborative practices that are the cornerstone of such integration. The Master combines the diversity of expertise at leading European universities in the relevant fields, offering education oriented to a multidisciplinary understanding of virtual construction through the involvement of experts from complementary fields (engineers, architects, programmers and others).

The Masters Course has duration of one academic year and is held on a rotating basis among partners, so each student follows coursework in one partner institution and dissertation in another one. The language of instruction and examinations is English. The degree awarded is a Master’s degree, provided as a double degree from the institutions involved.

Scholarships sponsored by the European Union and by the BIM A+ Consortium are available for students coming from any geographical origin.
