CMGT 4003: Managing with Building Information Modeling

2 CreditsOnline Available

For 5,000 years we have used hand drawings to communicate ideas and methodologies, from Egyptian hieroglyphs to computer technology. Building information modeling (BIM) computer models act as simulators, analyzing architectural programs, materials, energy usage, constructability, construction sequencing, and more, down to tens of micrometers. Today, building systems such as sheet metal and steel are fabricated directly from 3D models; material quantities are extracted from modeled objects and tied to cost early in the design process; coordinated models are visualized by project teams, clarifying scope, and providing a vehicle for communication. This course combines high-level technical training in BIM software with theoretical processes for managing a construction project using BIM techniques and tools. Prereqs: None. However, if you have no prior experience with construction, we recommend CMgt 3001 - Intro to Construction and CMgt 4021 - Construction Planning and Scheduling for knowledge of industry project delivery. Basic computer skills are required.
