Main topics: The academic subject “Architecture Computer Design” introduces students to computer technologies, being used or applied to Architecture design. Attention is drawn to the concept of Building Information Modelling – BIM plus learning to use the software product whereby this very concept is to be realized.

Students learn about the concept of BIM – the architectural project seen as a database, wherein the architectural elements are grouped into categories, classes, types and exemplars (models). They are taught how to create elements of a building: walls, doors, windows, floor slabs, dropped ceilings, roofs, stairs and landings, railings, terrain(plot), and others; Sts learn to change the parameters of these elements following certain project requirements; Sts learn to create and design images like: floor plans, elevations, cross sections, 3D and photorealistic images; learn to change as well as to make new classes of elements; to develop the project papers holding drawings, specifications, text and images. During the training course, Sts are also introduced to useful practices for utilizing high-produce tools, provided by the particular software.

The end-of-course project assigned is the main means for evaluating students’ knowledge cum their practical skills. The end-of-course project is to be developed within limited time of 2 academic hours, on equal assignment terms, whereupon Students’ grades are finalized.
