Course: Autodesk Revit Structure

Course Description
To harness complete advantage of Building Information Modeling, this course has been especially designed to help the aspirants learn the concepts and principles of building design through construction documentation using Autodesk Revit Structure. The aspirants will be introduced to the software's user interface and the basic building component that makes the Autodesk Revit Structure a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool.

Class and Lab Hours: 80 (55 Theory, 25 Lab)

Prerequisites: The individual must possess a degree/diploma in Civil engineering along with basic computer skills and also should have basic knowledge of steel structures. He/She must be able to visualize the 3D concept of building services. Site exposure will be an added advantage.

Job Prospectus: The individual possessing the skills taught in this course can apply as an entry-level BIM Modeler or as a BIM Engineer.

Textbook: Exploring Autodesk Revit Structure by Prof. Sham Tickoo

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, trainees/students will be able to:
  1. Create 2D and 3D models
  2. Understand other advanced tools for modeling
  3. Add Foundation, Beams, Floors, and Open Web Joist
  4. Create Project Details and Schedules
This class focuses on the core concepts and available tools that the majority of users will need to work with Structural Analysis tools.

Major Instructional Areas:

  1. The basics of Revit Structure
  2. Working with Structural Columns and Walls
  3. To add the foundations, beams, floors and open web joists
  4. The different steps involved in conceptual massing
  5. Working with the views and schedules
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with at least 75% score to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach
In this course, you will study individually or within a group of your peers. As you work on the course deliverables, you are encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
