The development of information technology and communication means has a great influence on the way construction projects are prepared and delivered. One of the latest trends in digitalization in construction bringing improvement throughout construction industry is the application of Building Information Modeling /Models (BIM). BIM is used for optimization of projects in respect of time and money in all project phases. It has been noted that BIM was successful in fulfilling these goals in all countries which have imposed BIM implementation for certain types of projects in their legislation and application of BIM becomes a standard all over the world. In order to keep the pace with everyday demands of the construction industry, the Department for Construction Project Management at the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Belgrade has introduced BIM in lecturing on Construction Project Management. In the latest accreditation, two new courses have been introduced. “The basics of desig...ning by applying BIM technology”, has been lectured at the final year of bachelor studies from the year 2017/2018. “BIM in Construction Project Management”, will be lectured at the master level starting from October 2019. Based on previous and on-going research the authors developed curriculums that will enable students to better understand the use of BIM in construction project management. This paper presents (1) previous experience of BIM education within the CPM module and (2) goals and first results of new courses being introduced in students education as well as teaching materials and applied theoretical and practical teaching methods performed in ICT labs with already implemented typical software for 3D modeling of construction and plans for introducing 4D and 5D functionalities.
