Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology has become a powerful driving force for the transformation of the construction industry. The effective integration of BIM in engineering education is the key to cultivating the construction industry practitioners. Based on the review of the progress, contents and challenges in BIM education, this study systematically described the levels, curriculum settings, formats and teaching methods of BIM education in architecture, engineering, and construction programs in American and British universities, and also summarized their core ideas, topics, courses and methods of BIM education. Domestic colleges and universities should speed up the pace of BIM education in architecture, engineering, and construction programs from all aspects such as BIM curriculum system, software and hardware environment, faculty team, teaching pattern and university-enterprise cooperation.
