Cloud-based Building Information Modelling (CBIM)

The following PhD studentships are available at the University of Cambridge on the European Commission-funded, Marie Sklodowska-Curie "CBIM" European Training Network (ETN).

The Cloud-based Building Information Modelling (‘Cloud BIM’/CBIM) training network aims to set the foundations for generating and exploiting digital twins of existing assets. It will make a step change in addressing the practical barriers to the concept and train capable Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). CBIM is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network call.

Three of the below studentships will be supervised by Dr Ioannis Brilakis, Director of the Construction Information Technology Laboratory (part of the Laing O'Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology in the University of Cambridge) and deputy coordinator of the CBIM training network.
