To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling (BIM), the Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals course has been designed to teach the concepts and principals of creating 3D parametric models of MEP systems from engineering design through to construction documentation.  This hands-on course is intended to introduce students to the software’s interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make the Autodesk Revit MEP software a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool.  The objective is to familiarize students with the tools necessary to create and document a complete parametric model.  The examples and practices used are designed to take the student through the basics of a real world project, from linking an architectural model to an MEP template to using Revit MEP tools to design HVAC, electrical, plumbing and piping systems to create complete construction documents in 2D or 3D.  Coordination is accomplished by monitoring of the Architectural model to detect changes to the design and interference detection to assure that clashes between elements are picked up during the design phase rather than during construction.

Autodesk Inventor inherent & intuitive command set features creating, editing, analyzing and printing of 3D models and drawings. Create one model / assembly & the orthographic (plan) views are automatically generated. Parametrically modify the entire model from any view.  This course will provide fundamental training for Autodesk Inventor users. Upon completion, you will be able to construct simple parts and assembly models of basic - moderate complexity in generating 2D /3D drawings.
With AutoCAD compatibility, adaptive technology, large-assembly performance and intuitive workflow, provides students the freedom to design without limits.  Sketch and assembly design enhancements make top-down assembly design faster and easier.  Expanded tools give users more options for importing and exporting designs. Drawing manager enhancements that give users more control over the behavior of detail views. This program can be utilized by all disciplines of engineers, designers, technical personal & drafters alike. Although Inventor® Is Mechanical by Design, it can be tuned to assist in Architectural &/or unique Disciplines.  Additionally this would be a very basic course that student could possibly take in varied but multiple directions.
