Start your ArchE career off right by learning the essentials of BIM (Building Information Modeling) software through CAD (Computer-Aided Design) programs such as Autodesk’s Revit! A few reasons why Revit has gained importance in our industry are as follows:

  • Creating lifelike 3D models with detailed reports, such as bill of quantities and bill of materials, is easy with Revit.
  • Revit establishes a link between 2D drawings and 3D models. A change made in the 3D model is simultaneously incorporated in the 2D drawings.
  • Staying connected with important team members is easy with cloud collaboration. Cloud sharing for exchanging files and an integrated chat feature helps stay connected with important team members during the design phase of a project.
  • Revit also enables structural and HVAC systems design, making it a holistic software package to execute the design aspect of a project from start to finish.

In cooperation with key figures in our architectural engineering program at Missouri S&T, we are partnering with various professors to bring students the best online expertise and training in Autodesk AutoCAD and Revit. These tutorials will serve you well starting off in your architectural design courses, moving through the curriculum of adding HVAC and general MEP applications, and finally graduating into the industry. As always, we encourage you to keep practicing and learning more of the BIM software(s) as you will be looked upon favorable as you keep up with your continuing-CAD education in the field!
