CAD - Building Information Modeling

Prepare for a career in architecture, engineering or construction using cutting-edge technology while learning about building project principles and the basics of construction drawing. Be at the forefront of the design industry with three-dimensional modeling knowledge using state-of-the-art computer software to convert designs into technical drawings and plans. The fast-paced Architecture/Engineering/Construction (AEC) industry that relies on 3D Modeling is expected to need between 30-50,000 skilled workers in the next 10 years.

Students learn the fundamentals of CAD and Design Visualization software such as AutoCAD, Sketch-up, and 3D Studio Max. Additionally, students complete projects in beginner and intermediate Revit courses, introducing them to real-world applications.​
