Join Brian Myers for an in-depth discussion in this video Nontraditional educational backgrounds, part of BIM Management: Careers.
- [Instructor] Another path to BIM management…is through a nontraditional background,…meaning that you have a degree in information technology…or business management.…Perhaps you have a degree in project management…or a workforce education.…I even know individuals…that have no actual college degrees…or very little education at all…that have gone on to become BIM managers.…Now in each of these scenarios,…the reason why they were able to become BIM managers…is that they began working for either an architect…or an engineer or a construction firm…and began to put those different experiences into place…so that they eventually started working with…either CAD software or BIM software.…
Then they had normal interaction with architects,…engineers, construction managers, facilities managers,…and through these interactions,…they became more and more able to converse…with these individuals on their needs, their problems,…and how to solve their problems.…In time, they learned all the skills of a good BIM manager,…but they had to go a nontraditional route…
