BIM Training and Certificate Program
A Certificate Program in Building Information Modeling (BIM) is available at East Stroudsburg University (ESU) through a partnership between ESU and Advenser Technology Services, Inc. (Advenser). The BIM process provides a data-rich, intelligent, 3D representation of a project and is widely utilized in the architecture, engineering, design and construction (AEC) industries. BIM facilitates a strategic approach enabling the decision makers to steer their projects in the right direction with precision and extend benefits of BIM to clients, key stakeholders and supply chains. BIM defines a clear purpose and delivers them through clear processes and information requirements.
The course provides insight into impact of digitalization, lean and collaborative approaches on the delivery and use of built assets.
A well-structured implementation strategy with a clear vision on purpose and priorities.
BIM provides a review of the business cases and drivers for change across construction and operation of built assets.

What is BIM?
BIM is a streamlined collaborative workflow of modeling technology and an associated set of processes to produce, coordinate/communicate and analyze digital information models throughout the construction project life-cycle.
Is BIM used widely in the US?
Yes. The technology is widely used across the US in the construction industry.
What is the main advantage of implementation of BIM?
The major advantages are;
- Two level construction – virtual & physical
- Early clash detection during pre-implementation stage
- Ability to undertake pre-emptive measures for clash
- Less variation order caused by coordination error
- Highly efficient and better quality output
- Execution at site with minimal coordination errors and corrections
How to implement BIM at organization level?
