Building Information Modeling, BS


About the Program

Combining graphics expertise with broad construction knowledge, building information modeling (BIM) is helping to revolutionize the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry through its transformative and collaborative approach. When you major in building information modeling at Purdue University, you’ll gain skills that will help a construction team create detailed designs and documentation. The 3D computer model is at the heart of BIM. Once you have created a model, you can view the structure from inside specific rooms, from any angles, and even with different materials such as brick or siding. You will learn about a wide range of topics necessary in the field, such as carpentry, steel, and plumbing and electrical trades.
