Seeking Members

As the Think Tank initiative evolves it is expected that there will be a need to form new Think Tanks around new subject matter or process-based initiatives. A minimum of three volunteers are required to start up a CanBIM Think Tank with Board approval. If you are a CanBIM Member and you would like to participate, we encourage you to sign up through the website today!

Goals

  • Surveying the current courses related to BIM in Canadian universities and technical colleges, and learning from the experiences of the US and other countries
  • Addressing the challenges of systematically introducing BIM in undergraduate and graduate curricula (design, construction and FM related courses)
  • Considering the benefits of BIM for supporting integrated life cycle management and sustainability issues
  • Linking education with AECOO industry needs (interoperability and data sharing)
