  • Financial Aid available

About the Program: 

The Architectural BIM Modeling Program prepares graduates for professional work in the 3-Dimensional Modeling using Revit software of residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings. The program develops drafting staff familiar with a variety of aspects of building construction drawing/ model preparation. Students study the principles of Construction Materials and Methods, Blueprint Reading and learn how to apply that knowledge using Revit Architecture software. The first few courses of the curriculum cover fundamentals necessary for all drafters – basic trade mathematics, communications including professional email composition, oral presentations, and general office environment conduct and understanding computers which will be used throughout your career. In addition to these basic courses, students learn architectural concepts, BIM principles, and Revit Architecture Software. The academic program is complemented by exposure to professional practice in the internship experience or final project development.

BCAD will assist with resume development and interview skills following graduation of this program.
