Most complex projects in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industries involve multidisciplinary collaboration and the exchange of large building data set. Traditionally, the collaboration efforts across the disciplines have been based on the frequent exchange of 2D drawings and documents. However, during the past decade, the widespread adoption of object-oriented Computer-aided Design (CAD) tools has generated more interests in Building Information Modelling (BIM). Idea of Building information modelling (BIM) concept consist on creating and managing data of whole building lifetime cycle in virtual model, where all information are stored. For managing of those data we need software for 3D, 4D and 5D modelling. This article is information about 3D and 4D software are collected and presented. The Civil Engineering Faculty Technical University of Košice provides relevant bachelor, master and doctoral level of the university study. In article is information, which area of Building Information Modelling was main aim in solution of master theses. The number and proportion of the student's work in Technology and Management in Civil Engineering which focused on BIM technology for the last 6 years is presented.
