Building Information Modelling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of a facility to form a reliable basis for decisions during its lifecycle. Current BIM software has been successfully used in planning, designing, constructing, operating and maintaining diverse physical infrastructures, such as water supply, electricity, gas, communication utilities, roads, bridges, ports, tunnels, etc. Currently, BIM is inadequately addressed both in engineering curriculum and in industrial practices. The objective of the present course is to bridge this prevailing gap. The ultimate aim of the course is the creation of a resource centre of BIM at RIT that could act as an initiator of reforms in these sectors.
Broad Objectives
1. Fundamentals of BIM
2. Introduction of Revit (BIM application software)
3. Research avenue in BIM
4. Examples of designing efficient building systems through BIM

Course Content The topics covered will be Research avenues in BIM, design of energy efficient building systems through BIM, achievement of requirements for different certifications like BREEAM, LEED, GRIHA etc. through BIM, Integration of BIM and GIS towards addressing various research questions related to geo-environmental influences on building systems, etc. Moreover, the application software developed in BIM (Revit) will be introduced to the participants
