Waldeck’s BIM Manager and Associate Lecturer at the University of Derby, Martin Cheung, has completed his fifth year of lecturing at the university, following another successful ‘BIM and Project Collaboration’ module as part of their BIM Management MSc course.
Rated one of the best BIM courses in the UK, the ten-week module see’s Martin educating students from across businesses such as Kier, Costain and Capita on the UK BIM standards (PAS to ISO), industry leading platforms (such as Revit and Navisworks) and the wider BIM Management processes within construction projects.
Martin shares: “I have been delivering this module at the university for several years now, and absolutely love being part of the lecturing staff. The most important part of the role for me is that, by working for Waldeck as a BIM Manager full-time I can ensure that I pass down my real-world experience to the students as well as the necessary theory and processes.
“Working as part of Waldeck’s architectural team, on a range of multi-disciplinary projects for clients across the sectors means I can help the students learn and understand the best application of the course’s theory. Sharing my working knowledge of what I call the ‘good, bad and ugly of BIM’ enables me to educate the next generation of engineers, project managers and so on, ready to apply their MSc to live projects.
“I look forward to heading back to the university in 2020 to deliver another successful module!”
Dr Boris Ceranic, Head of Architecture and Design at the university, shared: “Martin’s continual contribution to lectures, incorporating industry leading expertise and knowledge, and the collaboration between the University of Derby and Waldeck Consulting has been well received from our students year upon year.”
Daniel Wallace, First Year MSc student, added: “Having an experienced lecturer from the industry means we can put theory into practice. Martin was extremely thorough and dedicated to helping others on all different levels of knowledge. Thank you.”
Alongside lecturing, Martin, who is an Autodesk Certified Professional (ACP) also delivers other training sessions and workshops to businesses within the construction industry, including Revit, Navisworks and many other BIM enabling toolsets.
