Course summary

This programme aimed at those who wish to enhance their 3D drawing and design skills in order to operate within a Building Information Management (BIM) regulated environment. It is suitable for those employed or seeking employment with design consultants or engineering/facilities departments within the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical device, food manufacturing and water treatment sectors. The programme has been specifically designed in response to industry needs for upskilling as identified by the South West Regional Skills Forum (SWRSF). The SWRSF (made up of manufacturing, mechanical and MEP consultancy companies) has identified BIM and Revit as two of their top three priority areas for upskilling.

Department(s)

Mechanical, Biomedical & Manufacturing Eng

Timing Details

Two nights per week from September to May.

Delivery is 2 nights per week from September to May.

 

Content

Participants will be provided with the skills necessary to contribute effectively through the use of BIM related software applications, specifically Autodesk Revit for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), in conjunction with a specialised module dedicated to piping design.


Students will develop the ability to use modern computer-based engineering tools to solve well defined building services design problems and communicate effectively with the engineering community. They will learn to create and place equipment, route and coordinate pipework, add electrical components and use P&ID data all within a multidiscipline 3D environment. The programme will also incorporate the use of Piping Standards (BS, DIN, ANSI, etc.) and engineering symbols standards.
