Abstract

The implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) has significantly increased in the last few years in Morocco. However, it has been noticed from the literature that construction companies in Morocco face barriers which limit the full implementation of this technology. One of these barriers has been identified to be the lack of BIM courses within the higher education system, since is essential for AEC students to get a clear and deep understanding of this process and technology in order to meet the industry's requirements. Currently, there is an increasing request to embrace BIM within the educational system in Morocco either for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in order to supply students with the required knowledge and skills to be able to work within a BIM environment. Therefore, the aim of this research is to explore the status of BIM in the Moroccan higher education and to identify the main barriers which limit its implementation in the Moroccan higher education. To achieve the aim of this research, a mixed method approach has been adopted. Furthermore, the researchers highlights some recommendations which will aid the implementation of BIM within the higher education system in Morocco.
