Civil Engineering is about applying architectural, engineering and technology developments to the design of buildings. This discipline is largely concerned with the residential design, both single and multi-family, agricultural buildings, and decorative facades for larger buildings, and commercial structures.
The practitioners of building design are mostly architects and structural engineers. As part of planning, designing, and construction of buildings, they create initial and schematic designs of interior and exterior layouts, complete working drawings and specifications that will comply with all applicable building codes and regulations, select materials to be used, identify contractors and oversee construction by conducting on-site inspections.
Working closely with clients, the building designers resolve the formers’ requirements into a set of instructions for the construction a building.
Building designers are hired by construction companies. Many run design services agencies, thus practice as self-employed building designers.
The Role of CAD
Building Design CAD tools make home design, remodeling, interior design, and kitchen & bath design easy. Using CAD is a simple way to design, estimate and manage building projects. When combined with Building Information Modeling (BIM) features, CAD tools help designers visualize, simulate, and analyze their designs. Importantly, with CAD, it becomes easy to identify design flaws and pinpoint serious build problems.
Building Design CAD Software Courses
CADD Centre offers foundation and certificate courses in many building design CAD/BIM software including:
The AutoCAD Civil 3D software is a solution that creates civil engineering design and documentation that supports Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. With the implementation of AutoCAD Civil 3D, it is better to understand project performance, maintain consistency in processes and data, and give a faster response to changes.
ANSYS Fluent is a powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software for optimizing product’s performance. Its broad physical modeling capabilities help model flow, turbulence, and heat transfer. Also, this tool models reaction for industrial applications such as airflow over an aircraft and automobile body, combustion in a furnace, oil flow, airflow over semiconductor systems, and much more. With ANSYS Fluent you have access to several fluid flow physics model, which help analyze your product with precision.
SOLIDWORKS is a software tool that is used right from the conceptualization of the design until the final manufacturing of the product. As the world’s leading tool in designing, it supports interactive learning of 3D modeling. The implementation of such software can lend several benefits to the users, such as:
CATIA V5 or Computer Aided Three Dimensional Application is a powerful 3D parametric solid modeling software developed by Dassault Systems. It enables the development of high-quality mechanical products. It allows users to design shapes with 3D sketching and visualization features. Most importantly, its engineering, design, and system engineering capabilities make it very useful for the product manufacturing industry.
Autodesk Inventor is the world’s best-selling 3D modeling and digital prototyping software. It brings the best mechanical, engineering, and design productivity to the new level and reduces designing cycle time.
Upon completion of the course, students can apply for the jobs of Building Designer / Architectural Designer / Structural CAD Designer / BIM Designer / Interior Designer.
