Construction: digital & sustainability courses
NTU's School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment will provide training to employees of SMEs in construction and associated industries, such as low carbon. The training available focuses on digital and sustainable constructions skills at Levels 4 and 5.
NTU is committed to continued learning and professional development. Opportunities may be fully funded or subsidised for eligible participants through our ESIF projects.
AutoCAD 2D for the Construction Professional
The ability to read, develop and interpret construction drawings is a fundamental skill for anyone involved in the construction industry. On this course you’ll learn how to effectively communicate design ideas and develop the key principles of graphical communication using industry-standard AutoCAD software.
Starting with hand-drafting techniques, you’ll learn how engineering drawings and associated projections are constructed. You’ll then use AutoCAD to produce, develop, amend and interrogate these drawings.
Energy Management for Sustainable Construction
On this course you’ll learn how energy efficiency and overall sustainability can be achieved by exploring the strategies being applied to the design and construction of buildings.
It’s useful for anyone in the construction sector who’s interested in climate change, thermal comfort and energy management technologies.
Introduction to BIM for the Construction Professional
BIM is used for creating and managing project data through the design, construction, operation and de-commissioning process. It integrates data from multiple sources to create detailed digital representations that are managed in a cloud platform.
This facilitates real-time collaboration between the various project partners which leads to improved decision making, better option management and potential cost savings. This course will help you navigate the core components of the AutoCAD Revit platform.
