Summary/Abstract: Building Information Modelling (BIM) creates integrated design process, where information flow from one computer application to another, throughout the project lifecycle, is possible, it relies on the development and use of common information throughout the disciplines of architecture, engineering, construction, and facilities management. For this reason, a lot of study programmes involved BIM methodology into their curriculum. However all of them have different attitude or way of BIM implementation. Therefore the aim of this research work is to analyse the curricula of Higher Education Institutions related with BIM in Lithuania, to identify and analyse disciplines related with BIM and their relations in Kaunas Technology University and to identify gained BIM competencies. The analysis of the disciplines related with BIM shows that the strength of BIM development in Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture study programmes is the interdisciplinary joint semester project. Gained BIM competencies in study programmes merge the fundamental knowledge of study field and digital technology management. Those competencies are gained in undergraduate studies and it is a narrow volume of BIM process.
