Revit Architecture

Autodesk Revit Architecture has been designed to equip construction and architectural professionals to convert the blueprint concepts to 3D based construction models. Leveraging on the BIM (Building Information Modeling) format, the program enables you to design & document a project, complete with geometrical and non-geometrical construction information. Students will be introduced to the concepts of BIM and trained in the complete design process from basic design conceptualization to construction documentation through 3D modeling using various Design Development tools.
