Associate of Science in Building Information Modeling (AS)

building information modeling degree

When today's buildings are constructed, the engineers, designers, and architects involved rely heavily on building information modeling (BIM) to help plan and manage projects in the most efficient, cost-effective manner possible. Discover how this increasingly popular industry-current tools can prepare you for this field by enrolling in the International Academy of Design & Technology's Associate of Science in Building Information Modeling degree program.

This associate-level program can help you learn to communicate ideas and plans from design through production. With this background, you can be prepared with foundational skills for the fields of architectural design, construction design, engineering design, industrial design, interior design and more.

As you pursue your Building Information Modeling degree, you can study early design concepts and forms to learn how to accurately maintain your vision through the design, documentation and construction processes. The program's courses give you the opportunity to use computer-aided drafting and design techniques to complete comprehensive working drawing sets. In addition, you can gain a thorough understanding of commercial and residential construction methods as well as the basic mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems used in construction.

Below is a sampling of course topics included in IADT's Associate of Science in Building Information Modeling degree program.* Classes are led by instructors, many with relevant career experience.
