The course introduces the students to the computer technologies applied in architectural design. The focus is on the conception for information modeling of buildings (Building Information Modelling – BIM) and on students’mastering the skills to use software products, applying this conception.Students get acquainted with the fundamentals of BIM conception – the architectural design as data base in which architectural components are grouped in categories, families, types and instances. Students learn how to create building components: walls, doors, windows, floor slabs, suspended ceilings, roofs, staircases and ramps, balustrades, terrains, etc..; how to change parametres of these  components customizing them to the specific requirements of the project; how to create anf shape views, such as plan views, elevations, sections, 3D and photorealistic images. In the seminars, students learn about good practices for use of highly effective tools, available in this software.
The course assignment is the principal means for assessment of students’ knowledge and practical skills. The course assignment is the same for all students and is accomplished within fixed time (2h), for which students receive their final grade.
