Welcome to my BIM Hub for Training & Education (internal only at the moment...)

Cardiff is providing a fantastic MSc Programme for BIM for Smart Engineering, if you are excited about BIM, DO NOT miss the opportunity, come to join us.


*****************************************************

Prof. Haijiang Li has been playing the leading role for promoting BIM teaching & training in Cardiff since 2006.

MSc Programme Director for BIM for Smart Engineering
Module Leader for two BIM core modules:

Other modules involved:

BIM has been enabling a revolutionary way of working for the worldwide construction industry since it was first coined in 2003 in USA. It now triggers a worldwide tipping point to completely transform the oldest while still with the lowest productivity construction industry. At present, there are urgent demands for BIM graduates at all levels from UK & worldwide AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry. Students are becoming more and more interested in BIM and increasingly asking for more BIM related teaching modules.

Prof. Li created the new BIM teaching thread in Engineering School starting from 2006. Beginning from EN2208 - Computing in AEC and EN4102 - Integrated Building Design, gradually BIM contents were expanded into 7 main modules in Engineering School. Strategic links have been built with Arup, Atkins, Mott Macdonald, BRE and other industry partners to bring BIM industry practices into Cardiff BIM teaching and training.

In 2012, Prof. Li won the award of Engineering School Strategic Fund for teaching and built up a first-class BIM and VR (Virtual Reality) computing research laboratory, which has been fully utilized to support school wide BIM teaching and research. The BIM teaching has also been opened to the students from School of City Planning and Architecture School, and the BIM module (ENT768 & EN4308) has become one of the most popular modules and the student number has increased significantly  from 30 to 120 in 2019. Many students commented the module as one of the best modules they got in Cardiff and UK; “I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Dr HaiJiang Li for making this module the most interesting of my studies throughout my time at the university.” (Mr. Komodromos Sotiris).

Since 2006 till now (2019), more than 40 Year-3 project students and 30+ MSc students working on BIM topics (supervised by Prof. Li), and several hundreds to thousands of BEng / MEng / MSc students have acquired BIM knowledge and graduated from Cardiff. In 2015, Prof. Li was awarded with an EU Erasmus project (European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students, BIM4VET as PI). The project enables Cardiff to lead Pan-European BIM curriculum development and quality control activities, which are extremely strategic. In 2016, Prof. Li secured the second phase of ENGIN Strategic Funding to further upgrade the BIM and VR lab, new exciting equipment have been purchased and currently function well for teaching and research tasks.

In 2018, the new MSc programme - BIM for Smart Engineering has opened to welcome MSc students all over the world who are interested in BIM, and the programme has put Cardiff into the front tier for BIM training and education in UK and worldwide.

RESEARCH FOCUS

Current decision-making approach used in AEC/O (Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Operation) is historically divided by ‘domains’, e.g. (city) planner, policy maker, architect, engineers, construction manager, asset / facility manager etc.; and by ‘stages’, e.g. plan, design, construction and operation, it hence inherently lacks ‘holistic and life cycle approach’ to enable comprehensive and systematic decisions.

Prof. Haijiang Li has been working on smart engineering computing supported applications in the areas of buildings, infrastructure and cities, e.g. civil and hydraulic engineering – water and environment issues; structural engineering, onsite construction and project management; infrastructure – road, bridge, maritime and dam – structural design & analysis; building services and facility (asset) management – smart energy in buildings, district and cities; water distribution and urban water management, sustainability, resilience and disaster management for cities and the built environment. These experiences enable him to develop an inter-disciplinary oriented research towards a new generation smart engineering computing platform, underpinned by High Performance Computing (HPC & Cloud Computing), inter-linked domain knowledge (Ontology Modelling), Artificial Intelligence algorithms and BIM (Building Information Modelling) based standardization across sectors throughout project life cycle, to support large scale engineering data / information / knowledge processing, smart engineering optimization and holistic decision making to help to achieve sustainable and resilient built environment
