Abstract: Building information modelling (BIM) is a collaborative work methodology for the creation and management of a construction project. Its aim is to centralize all project information in a digital information model created by all agents involved in its development. BIM supposes the evolution of traditional design systems based on plans, since it incorporates geometric (3D), time (4D), costs (5D), environmental (6D) and maintenance (7D) information. Furthermore, BIM is not limited to the initial design phases, as it also covers the execution of the project and even the life cycle of the building. During the last decade, BIM methodology has been progressively implemented in different countries, becoming a priority for their Public Administrations. Following the recommendation of the European Directive of Public Procurement 2014/24/EU, BIM is progressively being requested in public works, e.g. The Spanish Ministry of Public works created in 2015 the National Committee of BIM, in which BIM implementation in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry and how to introduce it in public tenders are being considered. This progressive implementation of BIM by public administrations is transforming AEC industry. Therefore, universities should include BIM formation in AEC related studies, in order to prepare future engineers for this new scenario. In this work, a critical review of different approaches for BIM implementation in structural design of Civil Engineering Degree is made.
