CAD- och BIM-baserad byggprojektering
CAD and BIM Applications in Construction

VBKF20, 7,5 credits, G2 (First Cycle)

Valid for: 2018/19
Decided by: PLED V
Date of Decision: 2018-03-27

General Information

Elective for: V4
Language of instruction: The course will be given in Swedish


The purpose of the course is for the course participant to attain basic knowledge and understanding of virtual design and construction with respect to 2D-drawing and 3D-modelling with CAD- and BIM-applications. The course supports an explorative learning process in which the course participants learn how to apply CAD- and BIM-based design and construction in a realistic context. The software systems used in the course are commonly applied in industry.

The course rests upon assignments in which a building client has assigned the course participants, in groups of two students, to act in the role of BIM-consultants.
The course is designed as an applied course in which the course participants are expected to test and explore the introduced CAD- and BIM-tools in order to carry out the analyses, simulations and visualisations that are included in the case assignment of the course.
The course includes separate assignments that deal with 2D-drawings, 3D-modelling including model verification, visualization and drawings. Each assignment is reported in a written report. Written feedback for all assignments is provided to all course participants. There are also teaching events that consider various applications within structural engineering, building construction and building technology. The course ends with a concluding and comprehensive project assignment, which also is carried out in groups of two course participants. The topic of the project assignment is related to the students' interest in one of the areas structural engineering, building construction and building technology. The results of the project assignment are reported in a written report and are presented orally at a mandatory seminar by the end of the course. Written feedback for the project assignments is provided to all course participants.

Examination details

Grading scale: UG - (U,G) - (Fail, Pass)
Assessment: Grading scale: Pass/Fail Assessment: The course participants are assessed on basis of their written representation of the assignments, an oral and written presentation of the project assignment. Mandatory participation at the presentation seminar. For a pass grade, pass grade is needed for every part (assignments, written project report, oral project presentation, participation in presentation seminar).

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.
