Programme Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this programme the graduate will be able to demonstrate... :

PO1 Knowledge - Breadth
  (a) A wide knowledge and understanding of Building Information Modelling, Management and Digitisation aspects of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sectors together with Lean principles and techniques for delivery of multidisciplinary projects.
PO2 Knowledge - Kind
  (a) A broad knowledge and ability in adoption of collaborative approach in delivery of projects, communicate practical and innovative research solutions to problems. Be critically aware of the current problems projecting within Digitisation in AEC, Lean Principles and depending on electives FM sectors.
PO3 Skill - Range
  (a) Application of in-depth knowledge of personal and organizational skills and the ability to create innovative strategies to leverage current and emerging digital technologies and methods as an application to current and future challenges of AEC and Lean Principles and depending on the electives FM. Present and defend scientific research findings in non-technical and technical formats consistent with scientific publication criteria.
PO4 Skill - Selectivity
  (a) The ability to define, research and resolve complex problems in AEC sectors providing solutions for integrated project (ie. BIM, Lean Principles) delivery between people, process and technology. Demonstrate qualitative and quantitative judgement based on own research, experience and intuition and developing independent critical thinking. The ability to design, develop and test novel research hypothesis to enhance strategic thinking.
PO5 Competence - Context
  (a) The ability to act at a variety of professional levels. Apply the knowledge and understanding learned in different environments in their own organizations and projects; the ability to identify and critically appraise potential projects and opportunities, conduct research with appropriate methodologies and undertake the design and development of solutions to ill-defined and complex problems especially in digitised AEC sector.
PO6 Competence - Role
  (a) The ability and technical competence necessary to take significant responsibility for the work of individuals and groups in multidisciplinary settings; an ability to implement communication structures within an architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) project organisation.
PO7 Competence - Learning to Learn
  (a) Ability to self-evaluate their own learning, undertake continuous learning by identifying knowledge gaps and take responsibility for the pursuit of academic professional development pathways; Recognise and follow development by consulting newly published sources, learning how to assimilate and use for independent development.
PO8 Competence - Insight
  (a) The ability to scrutinise and reflect on broad technical, economic, environmental, ethical and social implications of BIM and Digitization in AEC sector; Demonstrate confidence which, reflects their academic and research achievements and experience for the need for high ethical standards including responsibilities toward people and the environment.
