This paper is about the uptake of BIM in the design studio in the Bachelor studies. In the current study year at our school we have the first cohort of students that have followed integral education of BIM from the very start of their study programme. We assess the usage of BIM in the final project work. The final data are not in yet, but we can observe a slight increase of the use of BIM in the design studio work.

Although we teach BIM since 2006 at the Faculty of architecture at Czech Technical University in Prague, the education has never been fully integrated into the curriculum of the school. In 2013/2014 this changed, and three tracks were initialized to integrate BIM: (1) teaching BIM in the first year; (2) applying BIM in a selected first year design studio; and (3) applying BIM in a selected third year Bachelor graduation design studio. The implementation of the work is described, results are presented, and we draw conclusions for future work.

In this paper we investigate the current state of BIM usage in Czech Republic and aim to find strategies how to improve BIM education based on findings from practice. We give an outline of the current state, identify problems that provide hurdles for BIM adoption, and show how we implement a new pedagogical approach to BIM education in our faculty.
