Learn how to enhance your 3D drawing and design skills in order to operate within a Building Information Management (BIM) regulated environment.
The programme has been specifically designed in response to industry needs for upskilling as identified by the South West Regional Skills Forum (SWRSF). The SWRSF (made up of manufacturing, mechanical and MEP consultancy companies) has identified BIM and Revit as two of their top three priority areas for upskilling.
Participants will be provided with the skills necessary to contribute effectively through the use of BIM related software applications, specifically Autodesk Revit for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), in conjunction with a specialised module dedicated to piping design.
Students will develop the ability to use modern computer- based engineering tools to solve well defined building services design problems and communicate effectively with the engineering community. They will learn to create and place equipment, route and coordinate pipework, add electrical components and use P&ID data all within a multidiscipline 3D environment. The programme also incorporates the use of Piping Standards (BS, DIN, ANSI, etc.) and engineering symbols standards.
Two nights per week (Tuesdays and Wednesdays) 6.30pm to 9.30pm from September 2023 to December 2023, and one night per week (Tuesdays) from December 2023 to May 2024. This course will be delivered fully online.
