This course providesstudents with the opportunity to work on a medium-size modeling/drafting project
using the latest architectural software. Emphasis is on the three-dimensionl drawing tools of the parametric Revit® software
program. Architectural computer models, rendering, and animation are important elements of the course. Students create photo
realistic computer images of buildings, components, and the project site.
