Course Descriptions & Student Learning Outcomes

AEC 124 - Building Information Modeling Software (3)

  • Prerequisite: "C" or higher in AEC 110 and in AEC 114

AEC majors only. This course provides students with the opportunity to work on a medium-size modeling/drafting project using the latest architectural software. Emphasis is on the three-dimensional drawing tools of the Revit software. Architectural models, rendering, and animation are important elements of the course. Students create photo realistic computer images of buildings, components, and the project site.

3 hrs. lect. per week

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of AEC 124, the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the appropriate software commands to create a 3D building model including the following assemblies: walls, floors, doors, windows, roofs, components, dimensions and stairs.
  • Compose and print a sheet in a building model set
  • Demonstrate the loading of components into a building model.
  • Create still renderings, perspective views and walk through animations of a building model using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software.
  • Import a vector-based reference drawing into a model file.
  • Demonstrate oral and written communication, computation and problem-solving skills appropriate to
