banner1
Title:Collaborative BIM 1
Long Title:Collaborative BIM 1
Module Code:INTR7018
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Interdisciplinary Engineering
Valid From: Semester 2 - 2019/20 ( January 2020 )
Module Delivered in 3 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: DES WALSH
Module Author: TED MC KENNA
Module Description: This module will introduce the learner to the multi-disciplinary nature of Building Information Modelling (BIM). The learner will become familiar with fundamental aspects of BIM within the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector. The focus for this module will be on the architectural and structural engineering elements of the building design and construction process and the practical application of relevant proprietary modelling software in the development of coordinated discipline specific models.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Identify and describe the fundamental principles of a BIM approach to building projects.
LO2 Develop an architectural 3D computer model of a building project using proprietary software capable of creating and leveraging a dynamic design environment.
LO3 Identify and create an appropriate structural engineering system within a 3D model of a building using proprietary software.
LO4 Manage project models within a Common Data Environment (CDE) and assess constructability of associated architectural and structural engineering models.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
