Overview

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.

 

Students 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.

 

Modules

Revit Introduction – introduction to the BIM environment
Revit-MEP – multidisciplinary services design
3D Piping Design – Detailed piping design in a virtual environment

 

Specific content includes

  • Intelligent P&ID generation linked to 3D Piping Packages
  • 3D Piping and Equipment Modelling
  • Estimating pipe sizes and duct sizes using Revit software
  • 3D Isometrics and BOM generation
  • Utilising Project Browser to generate and manage useful views
  • Generating reports and schedules using Revit software

 

Awarding Body

On successful completion of all three modules, students will receive a Special Purpose Award - 15 ECTS Credits at Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications, awarded by Cork Institute of Technology.

Applicants should have a minimum of a Level 6 qualification (or equivalent) in an engineering discipline such as mechanical, electrical or building services engineering. Equivalent recognition may be given through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process on an individual case-by-case basis to candidates who have not achieved this academic standard but who can demonstrate significant relevant professional experience in the Built Environment discipline, visit www.cit.ie/rpl.
