The implementation of Building Information Modelling (BIM) is growing exponentially in the civil engineering sector and, at the same time, the higher education sector plays a central role in this regard. The dataset derives from an online questionnaire survey administrated to all the 28 civil engineering undergraduate students attending the academic course about BIM “Construction Management - BYG230” (“Byggadministrasjon med BIM - BYG230” in Norwegian) at University of Stavanger, Norway, between September 2022 and November 2022. The survey, created on the Norwegian platform “Nettskjema”, is divided into five parts and collects information regarding as many overarching aspects: socio-demographic data of the respondents, perceptions about BIM before and after course attendance, satisfaction about the academic course and the way it was conducted. All the information in this dataset is conveniently translated from Norwegian into English.
