Digital Modelling Case Study
2015-2016 - BIM2002 - 15 ECTS


  • BIM1001 Basic Intelligent Modelling
  • BIM1011 Digital Modelling

On the basis of

BIM1021 Practical Modelling

Expected learning outcomes

On completing this course, students will have:

  • Practical buildingSMART knowledge and skills relevant for civil engineering in both public and private sectors.
  • Ability to lead and execute more complicated buildingSMART tasks connected with civil engineering projects for public authorities, architects, consultant engineers, contractors and building owners.
  • A broad understanding of the principles of buildingSMART obtained through planning, project design and execution, management, operation and maintenance in a concrete case study.
