Course Objectives This course will explore Building Information Modelling (BIM) concepts that has been influencing workflows in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to have an improved understanding of BIM concepts.
  • Will be able to develop an improved skill level in making projections for the future of architectural practice
  • Will be able to mine one's own knowledge to develop a fairly deep understanding of the industry s/he will be working within upon graduation.
  • Will be able to research, and self-teach basic software skills in BIM environments
  • Will be able to describe BIM workflow issues to prospective
Course Description Throughout the semester, the students will be in constant research on BIM applications from a wide variety of aspects. Students will be exploring available software and various BIM applications within the scope of lectures given at earlier hours of the course. A t least two presentation for each student will be expected throughout the semester. The research documents created in class will help understand what the future holds for BIM and vice versa.
