Tomorrow's designers and builders need BIM experience today Too often, aspiring construction project managers focus on one set of problems, architects on another, engineers on still others. Too few students receive experience bridging the divides between functions, something essential to turning designs into finished projects. To improve cross-functional collaboration among students, educators around the world are turning to Autodesk ® BIM 360 ™ Glue ® . BIM 360 Glue leverages the cloud so project stakeholders can collaborate on detailed 3D Building Information Modeling (BIM) models in real time, from their computer or mobile device. Students can be more productive in school, and better prepared for their careers. VIA University At VIA University in Horsens, Denmark, constructing architect and BIM instructor Charmaine Ferguson created Project Unity, which employed BIM 360 Glue to bring together all the school's departments—social learning and nursing, information technology, global business, mechanical engineering, marketing, construction engineering, and civil engineering—to design and build a kindergarten for disabled children. "There are lessons that cannot be taught in the classroom," says Ferguson. "Having to rely on other people is part of the real world." Milwaukee School of Engineering At the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), Jeong Woo, associate professor of civil engineering and construction management, implemented BIM 360 Glue in two project management courses and a senior design-build studio. In the studio, multidisciplinary teams collaborated on a design for a real-world project. Construction management students oversaw the project from conception through design.
