The Construction Industry Council (CIC) has been organising CIC BIM Competition annually from 2019 and providing an excellent platform to strengthen the knowledge on BIM and reveal the potential of the new generation to demonstrate their BIM talents. The competition promotes practical uses of BIM through collaborative and competitive learning approach among higher education students in construction related disciplines.
Now in its fifth year, "CIC BIM Competition 2023" aims to challenge the participant's creativity and innovation in the design of a new Construction Innovation and Technology Application Centre (CITAC) with the use of BIM. The competition is only eligible to full-time higher education (post-secondary) students, and part-time students who are pursuing top up degrees in forming up a team of 3 to 6 members, with students from minimum 2 construction disciplines.
By joining this competition, students will have opportunities to receive free licenses of various BIM software and attend a series of hands-on BIM Software training webinars on them. There will also be mentors with professional background providing guidance and support for participating teams.
Furthermore, as the Education Bureau approved the competition under Innovation, science and technology category, the winners may have a chance to receive $10,000 from the "Talent Development Scholarship (TDS)" established by the HKSAR Government which aims to give recognition to students for their achievements and talents in other non-academic fields. Application for the scholarship must be made through the institutions concerned.
Students who are interested in the competition, please register online now. The registration deadline will be on 3 February 2023 while submission deadline will be on 1 June 2023.
We look forward to your participation!
