Integrating Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Teaching Project Scheduling and ControlAbstractStudents in construction management and engineering classes often comment currentteaching doesn’t always follow the new technologies that are used in the constructionindustry. Obviously Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been used in theconstruction management in the field; therefore, adopting BIM to current teaching isurgent and useful. However, changing technology in class requires lots of efforts andmight not be immediately possible for all instructors. This paper reports a practice ofintegrating BIM in teaching project scheduling and control. The software, models,instruction hours, changes of instructions, effect of student leanings are discussed as wellas its impact on ABET accreditation. This practice can provide some insights to teachingin other construction engineering programs.
