CONS06038 2019 BIM Fundamentals
This module will provide students with the knowledge and skills to construct building information models using use BIM authoring software.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Use BIM authoring software to create building models to a professional standard.
Extract detailed information from a model required in the interdisciplinary whole life cycle of a Building.
Explain the theoretical principles fundamental to BIM and the BIM process.
Teaching and Learning Strategies
This module will be delivered using blended learning techniques. This will include lectures, practical demonstrations and tutorial assistance. Students will be required to undertake assignments during classes and will be required to undertake additional project work in private study time. Moodle will be used to upload educational material (i.e. presentations and recordings of lectures plus supplementary reading material).
