Abstract Building information modeling (BIM) has long been utilized in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) education. Learning and teaching (L & T) research has revealed a range of shortcomings in using BIM such as unfamiliarity of students and graduates with real-world field operations and decision making processes. Better visualization of BIM via augmented reality (AR) is an innovative educational approach that can address the aforementioned problems. This paper, proposes AR-powered BIM as a robust platform to be adopted in the AEC education with the aim of improving student experience and learning. After discussing advantages and disadvantages of BIM and AR as two separate platforms, opportunities and challenges to combine the two are investigated. This work contributes to the body of knowledge in the field of AEC education by investigating the dynamics of using AR-powered BIM in curriculum design.
