CEE 5984: Built Environment and Information Modeling and Processing

This course introduces the technologies that enable virtual modeling and processing of the infrastructure projects' life cycle. Therefore, the course introduces the theory and application of Building Civil Information Modeling and their integrated practices for the AECF Industry BIM CIM enable the development of data-rich virtual models of infrastructure systems that could be used for different applications during the project life cycle. These applications include design exploration, projects' constructability and feasibility analysis, project documentation, project cost control and management, project sequencing, field coordination, facilities management, life cycle assessment, and energy performance. Students will learn core concepts and technologies of information modeling that are used for major infrastructure facilities such as buildings, roads, and similar structures. Students also get familiar with the technologies that enable integration of field information (such as laser scanner point louds( into the virtual models. The course also sheds light on the collaboration requirements between different entities in the AEC industry for increased overall performance of the projects over the entire life cycle.
