There is a ‘Visualisation and BIM’ thread through the Civil Engineering programmes, mainly evident in the Design of Sustainable Engineering Systems (DSES) project modules. Stage 3 MEng students the previous year will have been encouraged to explore the use of Revit for collaborative data handling between their specialist teams in the small scale context of their design project module (CEG3004). This module goes on to broaden and deepen the students’ awareness of the latest requirements and opportunities for BIM in the context of full scale construction projects.
