There will be a strong emphasis on collaborative process and the effective communication of higher order thinking to facilitate judicious and ethical practice.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) apply theoretical understanding of processes of conceptualisation and documentation to design a large scale complex [multi – storey] building using BIM models; (2) apply technical and analytical skills to produce a legible and accessible BIM model of high quality; and (3) competently coordinate collaborative process and articulate complex ideas in a concise manner to users within BIM environment.
