Introduction:

This course will introduce and develop the core principles of Building Information Modelling (BIM) as used in the planning, design, construction and operation phases of a project using the AutoDesk Revit platform.

It’s useful for anyone in the construction sector who’s looking to develop their overall knowledge and skills in BIM for construction projects.

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.

You’ll set up, develop and manage small-scale project files within a BIM environment.

It will therefore enable you to increase your level of project engagement and productivity.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • have a working knowledge and understanding of the AutoCAD Revit software package
  • appreciate the basic concepts of BIM
  • produced accurate 3D construction drawings using AutoCAD Revit to create a simple Building Information Model
  • be able to communicate clearly in graphical format
  • be able to demonstrate a range of transferable skills that be will valuable in the workplace.

What will I gain?

A CPD certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.

Should the assessment be successfully completed, the course provides 5 NTU undergraduate credits.
