Course detail

Building Information Models – Designing

FSI-ICAAcad. year: 2020/2021

The lectures provide the student with the knowledge of hardware and software, which is necessary for the computer design of heating and air-conditioning equipment. Workshops enable the student to practically test these systems via solving specific tasks.
CAD, together with more advanced software, is used to design heating and air-conditioning equipment.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student will learn to routinely work with AutoCAD REVIT, AutoCAD REVIT MEP, and CADKON / 2D and CADKON / MEP. The student will gain practical experience in the designer of heating and air conditioning.

Prerequisites

Students are expected to have basic computer (OS Windows) skills, i.e. basic work with 2D CAD software, preferred software is AutoCAD.

Co-requisites

Aims

To deepen students' knowledge of working with CAD systems with a focus on BIM. To teach them to work with CAD in the field of construction drawings and HVAC. Particular emphasis is placed on design in CAD for the field of air conditioning and heating. They will also gain knowledge in the field of 3D modelling.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

During the semester, work on the project is continuously monitored.
