New program on digital transformation in the construction sector for managers
Builtech Advanced Program has been launched by IE School of Architecture and Design and the Executive Education area of IE University.
IE University has launched the #Builtech Advanced Program to train executives to overcome the challenges of digital transformation in the construction sector and to take advantage of the opportunities the process presents. Run by IE School of Architecture and Design and the Executive Education area of IE University, the course is intensive and focused on evaluation, layout and leadership in digital transformation within the Architecture-Engineering-Construction sectors and takes a hands-on approach, with participants building their own digital roadmap, from selecting technologies to managing change. The face-to-face program will consist of 8 training days between May and July in Madrid.
“The construction industry is an engine of the economy and faces the challenges of the impact of digital transformation. Many companies maintain processes based on paper, which regularly generates delays and extra costs. Digitization will help mitigate these problems, favoring new forms of design, making collaboration between engineers, architects and builders more agile and transparent and generating innovative business models, “explained Roberto Molinos, director of the program. “In the current context, with the sector in full recovery, this program is necessary to avoid many of the mistakes that the property bubble brought us,” he added.
The #Builtech Advanced Program is designed for construction sector professionals and heritage managers interested in deepening their knowledge of business and asset digitization. It is also an opportunity for architects, engineers, builders, property developers and operators who want to improve their processes through the application of technology. The program also draws on the expertise of a teaching body from companies such as Arup, Lendlease, Prinex, Grimshaw, Ogun.lo and Ferrovial, who share the keys to their success and their experience in overcoming problems along the way, all with a common denominator: the importance of an entrepreneurial culture.
“Students will obtain a transversal vision of what digitalizing their companies involves without having to reinvent the wheel.”
Through this new program, IE School of Architecture and Design and Executive Education will provide training on the drivers of digital transformation in the construction sector, identifying the processes affected by digital disruption in the industry and the design of business transformation plans. “Students will obtain a transversal vision of what digitalizing their companies involves without having to reinvent the wheel. They will be able to plan change and trace the guidelines that their companies can follow in a short period of time. Furthermore, they will come into contact with other professionals, teachers and students with whom they will be able to explore the opportunities of digitalization within the classroom and outside it,” explains the program’s director.
The face-to-face program will be held from May 31 to July 19, 2019 in Madrid, and will be delivered by IE School of Architecture and Design and IE Business School faculty.
