Title:Building Information Modeling
Long Title:Building Information Modeling
Module Code:ARCH8020
 
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Advanced
Field of Study: Architecture & Urban Environment
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2014/15 ( September 2014 )
Module Delivered in 4 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: KATHERINE KEANE
Module Author: KATHERINE KEANE
Module Description: This module provides advanced instruction in Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Architecture including measurement and analysis. This module helps to develop the student’s ability to use BIM as a tool to construct parametric models for use in predictive analysis. BIM is explored in relation to its use in post construction measurement and geomatic data.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Prepare a digital survey measurement and descriptive drawings using BIM.
LO2 Use BIM for building energy performance analysis, solar radiation, lighting, acoustics, air flow.
LO3 Integrate BIM interdisciplinary practice using a common building model.
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 CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
No recommendations listed
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
