The part-time Certificate in Introduction to BIM (using Revit) programme consists of one module taught over one semester. This programme is designed to introduce Building Information Modelling (BIM) and explore and develop basic skills in Building Information Modelling (BIM) using Revit. Learners are introduced to the software Revit, and will develop an understanding of BIM’s technical issues through individual effort. They will extract 2D documentation plans, sections, elevations from the model, and render 3D views to a high degree of expertise.
Why study the Certificate in Introduction to BIM (using Revit)
The programme creates opportunities for learners to take individual professional design responsibility of their product and their process and develop an ability to lead teams within their disciplines. Through the course, students will:
- Explain key topics and principles surrounding BIM and the benefits to be gained from its adoption.
- Devise and plot design details in a holistic manner with competence, fluency and sensitivity demonstrating a good understanding of the principles of interdisciplinary communication required in presenting projects generated by BIM.
- Use BIM software to produce 2D documentation plans, sections, elevations and to construct complex 3D models to include and building services efficiently, to industry standard.
- Use BIM software to produce specifications of work, time schedules, and costings for the construction industry
