Course Objectives This course will explore Building Information Modelling(BIM) concepts that form the fundamentals and the practice of it. In this Course the student will develop an understanding of Building Information Modelling in terms of how the building practice is being reshaped by information technologies. The course will not be based on developing software skills. Rather, assignments will be on exploration of BIM as a system of collaborative, connected and scalable way of production for the AEC Industry.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will have an improved understanding of BIM concepts.
  • will 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
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.
