DF 226 - Introduction to Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Revit

Credit Hours: 3

This course introduces students to Building Information Modeling (BIM), the Autodesk Revit software's user interface, and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components. BIM and Revit work hand in hand to help create smart, 3D models that are useful at all stages of the building process. Students will gain familiarity with the tools required to create, document, and print parametric models. Students will work through the basics of a full mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) project linking an architectural model to construction documents.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • identify and utilize Autodesk Revit software's basic view, drawing, and editing commands;
  • insert and connect MEP components and utilize the System Browser;
  • demonstrate an understanding of how to work with linked architectural files;
  • apply the concept and workflow of BIM in relation to the Autodesk Revit software;
  • create and annotate construction documents with industry standards and symbology; and
  • present an original comprehensive project with professional competence including construction drawings and BIM
