College of Architecture + DesignCertificates

Building Information Modeling (BIM) Certificate - Undergraduate / Graduate

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) at LTU is available online, as both an undergraduate and graduate certificate.    It covers building information modeling and computer visualization, both of which play an increasingly important role in architecture, specifically building design, construction, and operation. With the help of cutting-edge computer software, building information modeling and computer visualization use 3D modeling techniques that integrate a building’s components – properties, location, geometry, spatial relationships, etc. The ability to visualize the project with BIM software increases productivity in the overall building process and improves communication between architects, engineers, contractors, and other key team members, making the project more efficient and economical.
