summary The paper presents our experience and findings of teaching Building Information Modeling (BIM) at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. At the undergraduate level for Environmental Design students, basic BIM concept and modeling were exercised. At the graduate level for Ph.D. and MS students in Architecture, MArch students, and MS students in Construction Science, advanced topics including parametric design, database, Application Programming Interface (API), and building lifecycle applications of BIM were introduced. We suggest an incremental BIM skill development with a course agenda, for example: first year college modeling; second year and third year simulation and analysis for building systems; and fourth year and above until graduate level customization. Detailed description of the courses, strategies, student projects, findings, and discussions are given in the paper.
