The workshop in brief:

On 4th June 2021, Tishk International University has organized an international online workshop in collaboration with Erbil Polytechnic University titled (Building Information Modeling in Design, Construction and Operation). The workshop’s objective was to give efficient knowledge about Building Information Modeling (BIM) to target modern ideas for engineers; BIM illustrated such as the best-invited concept for upgrading the brightest outcome in the engineering world. Additionally, explore subjects created by BIM and different topics discussed with local and international experts to enhance the future of BIM in the Kurdistan region. The workshop develops an adequate understanding for engineers such as professional developers in adapting the BIM experience and enhancing knowledge. In addition, BIM is demonstrated as a powerful tool to solve more issues.

Around 100 local and international staff  participated in the workshop.

Date and time: 04 June 2021
