ARC 224 - Building Information Modeling

Credits: 3
Requires a basic knowledge of a Windows Operating System. Continues work with modeling software to successfully and efficiently produce building information models. Uses the entire software platform, while moving through a building project, in the design integration of the following building disciplines: Architectural, Interior Design, Structural, Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical. Includes the generation of plans, elevations, section views and schedules.
