Sobre el centro

Zigurat is a global institute for architects, engineers, owners and developers. We teach key skills to professionals in the AECO (Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operations) industry. We have been offering certified qualifications, Master’s degrees and postgraduate courses for the past 15 years.

Our strategic plan is focused on the three key points: providing the best online education designed according to the needs of the industry, further developing of our training programs for the international market, and launching a strategy to help professionals to attain top job positions at a global level.

Zigurat’s mission is to promote continued progress in the practices of architecture, engineering, construction and building development. We have more than 120 professionals from over 15 different countries who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and experiences, which have become international benchmarks, with students who wish to achieve professional success through certified programs.

We intend to cover the gap in the existing market between the university and the company with training focused on results, career guidance and the execution of best practices in a competitive and collaborative environment.

Our training program is an immersive experience, offering students the opportunity to create real projects in collaborative settings in order to achieve the highest profitability in terms of resources invested and return on investment achieved.

Faced with this reality, in 2016, Zigurat has made a variety of new institutional arrangements with associations and companies worldwide. Proof of this are our certifications and endorsements from international associations such as the International Council for Open and Distance Education (ICDE), buildingSMART Alliance, Canada BIM Council (CanBIM), Professional Certification Agency and Ecommerce Europe; and official certifications from private companies such as Autodesk, Graphisoft, Bentley and CYPE Software.

Our mission is clear: to teach the necessary competences to enable professionals to enter the job market as it is set out in our Strategic Plan for 2016-2017. Zigurat continues to reach agreements with recruitment companies from different regions: North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Eastern Europe, Middle East, Asia and Oceania.

Global BIM Management (Building Information Modeling)

Cristian Salmeron Mateo
Lo mejor I think this course is very well structured in terms of lecturers and information, BIM is something very new for an industry that has been working in the same way for a long time. Because of that, there is a lot of new information and tools, and do a master degree where you have to use at least two of the main software in the market (among other software for specific tasks) gives you a very good understanding and skills to be proficient in this process. Furthermore, this course gives you the opportunity to work on a collaborative platform, with people that are in different locations than you. that is a key part of BIM, so it means that you will finish the master with that part of BIM integrated in your way of working. Is not the same someone explaining something to you, than actually doing it, that's the way to really learn and acquire the skills.

A mejorar The one thing I would improve in this course is the way that the forums are organised. If it is true that is quite hard to organize it online and for more than 100 students, I think is a bit hard to keep up with all the subjects and questions that other students ask to the teachers, and to be careful to not ask something that someone asked before, or has not been talked about. Also it does not create the ambient to have debates between other students and teachers. But I guess is one of the downsides of online education. I think that it would be very good to do video conferences with reduced groups and a teacher to discuss different subjects.

Global BIM Management (Building Information Modeling)

Lo mejor My experience has been good and I can apply the acquired knowledge directly in my work area. This master has helped me to understand a wide range of BIM tools and the interoperability between them, promoting the concept of OPEN BIM. In addition, we practiced collaborative work doing group practices with people in different parts of the world, so the international character improves the training. This Master makes a full review of all the competencies of a BIM Manager, which allows us to perform all the BIM implementation tasks in a company. This has many professional outings and is demanded by companies which are adapting their work processes to this new BIM methodology. Therefore, it´s a great job opportunity. Also an online training is flexible to your work schedule.

A mejorar Being an online training, I miss that there were more live online classes or recorded, such as videoconferences in which they explain the practices, but do something similar for introduction to the syllabus or modules. Instead of exposing everything in pdf format (sometimes it is too much and it is difficult to read and to analyze the whole agenda).
