BIM Tools and Technologies
The course introduces students to the principles of effective work in BIM-environment. Students will learn the benefits of Building information modeling through the development of 3D virtual building model with unique architecture, structural frame and elaborate engineering systems. Moreover, the course provides different ways of improving building energy efficiency, using practical energy calculations and BIM technology.
The main feature of the course is variety of software and digital construction technologies that students may get acquainted with. The program provides you with working experience in Autodesk Revit – world-leading BIM platform, that allows fast and economically-efficient creation and management of projects. In addition, it contains learning of project navigation and collision search in NavisWorks, 3D printing method of building fabrication, and virtual tour via augmented reality smart glasses.
Digital project management
The course discusses construction project planning, network analysis and management by means of MS Project. The Project Management program acquaints students with methods of effective work organization, types of calendar plans, network models, accurate resource planning, and principles of project optimization and control. Well-targeted project management as well as BIM application in construction helps to reduce design period significantly. During the classes, students develop a calendar plan based on the BIM model of the building with creation of a work structure and resource assignment in order to learn how to achieve the excellent project organization.
