How to train the BIM leaders of tomorrow By Rodrigo Ferreiro, ZIGURAT Institute of Technology, Head of Corporate & Institutional Development INTRODUCTION Education and training are not just tools; they are transformative catalysts that enable us to shape a new reality. In the words of the inspiring Malcolm X, ‹Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.' This powerful quote encapsulates the very essence of ZIGURAT's mission and serves as the driving force behind everything we do. We proudly proclaim that we Transform Tomorrow Today! At ZIGURAT, we are wholeheartedly committed to shaping the BIM Leaders of tomorrow, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in an everevolving world. THE BACKSTAGE ZIGURAT was born out of a passion for precision and technical excellence. Founded by visionary engineers, who recognized the crucial need for leadership and education in the transformative technologies that shape the global construction industry. Inspired by the iconic ziggurats, ancient Mesopotamian structures steeped in history, we wholeheartedly embrace the rich heritage of the AEC sector. ZIGURAT is a pioneer in online education, with over 20 years of e-learning experience. Our foundation is built upon the relentless pursuit of improving the effectiveness of online education. We are not a result or consequence of the pandemic. ZIGURAT was founded in 2001 as the first e-learning institute dedicated to the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction sector. Additionally, we hold the distinction of being the first institute to offer a global master's program in BIM management in three languages: English, Spanish, and Portuguese. For several years, ZIGURAT has been delivering an innovative master's program that incorporates a disruptive methodology based on the following fundamental pillars.

This is how we effectively train the BIM Leaders of tomorrow. 1. INDUSTRY LEADERS, A FACULTY BOARD OF REFERENCE The ZIGURAT Faculty Board stands as the cornerstone of the learning journey.
