Curriculum Resources for Students and Faculty
BIM Learning Materials for College Courses and Studios
The Autodesk BIM Workshop is an online learning resource center that was created to help prepare architecture, engineering, and construction management students for professional practice. The site boasts an abundance of free learning material, videos, exercises, and much more, designed to teach Building Information Modeling (BIM) sustainable design practices along with integrated project delivery (IPD) concepts. With a strong focus on sustainable and conceptual design concepts, the comprehensive teaching tools give students the extra edge they need to help them excel in their studies.
Faculty will find this material an added value to their curriculum. The BIM Workshop contains instructor guides, presentations, tutorials, and assessment questions that can be easily incorporated into lesson plans.
Autodesk Civil Engineering Interactive Learning Modules
The Autodesk® Civil Engineering curriculum modules were created to support engineering principles and concepts. These modules help introduce and explore Transportation Design and Planning, Environmental Engineering, Site Design, and Survey using the BIM for Infrastructure portfolio. Exercises, tutorials, and assessment tests can be added to class assignments or can be used as a class supplement. Engineering firms are looking to hire graduates with BIM skills. With the Autodesk Civil Engineering curriculum, graduates will understand the value of infrastructure modeling and gain the technical skills they need to accelerate their careers in this profession.
Autodesk Structural Engineering Curriculum
The Autodesk® Structural Engineering curriculum was created to introduce Structural Design and Analysis to help students efficiently design, analyze, document, and build their projects. The Instructor guides, presentation slides, tutorial videos, and assessment tests can be easily incorporated into existing courses. The curriculum includes topics that support the complete workflow from building structures to cloud computing to analysis and documentation. Content focuses on concepts and theories and is supported by exercises using the BIM Portfolio.
Design a Net Zero Energy Building
Now more than ever, future architects and construction managers must be able to incorporate sustainability and analysis into their designs. At the Autodesk® Sustainability Workshop educators will find free interactive teaching tools that show how to apply BIM and sustainability practices to real-world design. The Sustainability Workshop teaches the principles of designing a Net Zero building with engaging videos, tutorials, data sets, and supporting materials. The product video tutorials help students to design, visualize, and simulate their work digitally to evaluate a design’s economic and ecological viability.
