V. Meana, A. Bello, R. García


Every day, the BIM Methodology (Building Information Modeling) is getting closer to the companies and other members of the AEC sector (Architecture, Engineering and Construction), as well as to educational institutions that are starting to train new professionals on this matter. The roadmap set by the es.BIM Commission establishes the mandatory use of BIM for all public construction tenders as of December 17th, 2018 and for infrastructure tenders as of July 26th, 2019. The purpose of this paper is to make public and share the results of the research work concerning the state of implementation of BIM at different universities and Industrial Engineering Schools in Spain. However, are Spanish universities prepared for the challenge? Are teachers prepared for this? And what about the situation in Latin America? The study undertook a bibliographical review and analysis of publications addressing this topic, and talks given in specialized conferences. Different teaching experiences were analyzed and compared among several Spanish universities, and the problems encountered, the results obtained, future improvements and needs detected in relation to their implementation processes and procedures, have been taken into account
