This Module is called CAD BIM 1 for construction Managers year 1, your lecturer for the year will be Gerard Nicholson. You can contact him at gerard.nicholson@gmit.ie. The module has a 5 credit weighting and requires 3 hours lab time in room 227. The module is 100% continuous assessment, so it is important that you attend all lectures. The software to be used throughout the year will vary, first we will be using AutoCAD 2019 to produce 2D design outs and then Revit 2019 to produce 2D and 3D design outputs.
