What you will learn

Gain contemporary skills and knowledge for your job now.

3D spatial technologies are revolutionising the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. Advances in Building Information Modelling (BIM) are driving sustainable solutions in Australia’s booming infrastructure sector.

This Melbourne MicroCert is ideal for professionals in the building and infrastructure space who are seeking a strong understanding of 3D data collection methods, and want practical experience using BIM to improve architectural design projects.

This project-based course has been endorsed by Arup, a global leader in the engineering design space.

Explore 3D spatial data collection methods

Gain a high-level understanding of different 3D data collection methods and recognise which models are best suited to architectural design. Review and discuss parametric modelling, contrast it with 3D data collection techniques, and apply what you learn to your final project.

Analyse challenges in 3D data collection

View expert videos, examine industry case studies, and engage in group discussions to gain a stronger understanding of key challenges in 3D data collection, modelling, and visualisation. Learn how precise architectural planning and laser scanning techniques lead to more consistent outcomes in data collection.

Design an architectural BIM for your workplace

Identify a project from your workplace and design an architectural BIM to improve your organisation’s infrastructure needs. You’ll gain valuable practical experience in 3D spatial data collection, use Revit to draw and render your BIM, and learn strategies for managing BIM files.

Understand 3D visualisation techniques

Complete your project by creating an accurate 3D visualisation of your design. Explore different types of visualisation software and use Revit to give your work a strong visual context.
