The latest IT technology integration movements, such as building information modeling (BIM), have engendered changes in the technology and participatory organizations in the construction industry, which have resulted in process innovations and productivity gains. BIM lays the foundation for using a variety of new information that is not applicable to traditional construction methods. Construction companies are applying such information to various analyses, simulations, and learning and

This is due to the inadequate competence level of BIM managers, who emerge from a system incapable of adequately educating BIM managers. In other words, the curriculum has not been able to impart the BIM skills necessary to accommodate the requirements of the industry. Only the most basic BIM modeling course is offered, and even such a course is dependent on external instructors. This creates a gap with the existing construction engineering educational curriculum. This study proposes a BIM-based construction engineering educational curriculum that has not been attempted before to overcome these limitations and generate a BIM workforce to cater to the industry.
