Dr. Michael Casey is involved in several initiatives for BIM education and research. He has been named a member of the Design-Build Institute of America‘s BIM Committee whose charge is to develop guidance for project owners to incorporate virtual modeling practices in their RFPs. He recently participated, along with Young-Hoon Kim (MS ’07) in the Alexandria BIMStorm event. The event brought together teams from around the world to participate in real-time planning exercises for the creation of Federal Friendly Zones. In October, Dr. Casey will be presenting a paper at the ASEE Frontiers in Education conference on the incorporation of BIM into the the Civil Engineering curriculum.
