Associate Degree of Applied Technologies - Building Information Modelling
Blended learning – on-campus and digital learning
Students in this course learn the principles of smart 3D modelling and associated tools such as virtual reality, photogrammetry, laser scanning and more.
You will learn how the different groups rely on each other across the lifecycle of a building and how digital workflows are the foundation of the smart cities of the future.
You will also engage in project-based learning using industry preferred software and workflows.
The future is building twice: once in the virtual, the other in the physical.
Completing this course will jump start your digital career in the construction industry.
