BIM Engineer Traineeship


The construction industry is changing, and the lines between fields of expertise are blurring. Increasing attention is being paid to boosting efficiency and avoiding the costs of failure. This calls for a different approach to projects, and so the demand for Building Information Modelling (BIM) specialists continues to grow. If you’re up for the challenge, in a short time we’ll teach you all you need to know about BIM: the 3-D methodology used in the construction industry and in mechanical and electrical engineering.


BIM Engineer


As a BIM Engineer, you’ll have a key role in construction projects. You’ll create a 3-D information model containing and linking all the data required for the design, construction and management processes, including calculations, construction drawings and reports. By combining them in BIM, you’ll be optimising stakeholder communication, and reducing unwise decisions and construction errors.


Technical training


The traineeship is made up of basic and follow-on training in BIM and Revit software. You'll learn to design and calculate installations, to select and install components, to assess the Program of Requirements, the construction specifications and the budget, and to document it all in the BIM system.


Working on your soft skills


As a BIM Engineer, you'll be closely involved with architects, building contractors, installation technicians, CAD draughtsmen, construction draughtsmen and constructors. To work with such a diverse group you'll need plenty of soft skills, such as good communication techniques – and we’ll make sure you get all the training and personal development in these skills that you need.


Training and coaching


Your training is divided into two sections: for the first six weeks, you’ll receive technical training and will work at improving your soft skills. This is followed by a training period lasting 1 to 3 years, where you’ll execute projects for clients while building your technical know-how. Finally, follow-up days will be an opportunity to exchange experiences with trainers and fellow trainees.


What we expect


To be eligible for this traineeship, you have:


  • completed a relevant technical education*
  • 2 to 5 years' work experience
  • comprehensive knowledge of Revit and CAD applications.



*Relevant courses include structural engineering (Higher Vocational/graduate), civil engineering (Higher Vocational/graduate), electrical engineering (Higher Vocational/graduate) installation technology (Higher Vocational/graduate) and mechanical engineering (Higher Vocational/graduate).
