The programme will provide learners with a solid grounding in Mechanical and Electrical Building Information Modelling (BIM) using Autodesk’s Revit MEP. This programme will encompass the basics of Mechanical and Electrical Building systems as well as other BIM functionality such as tables and building quantities. This course will benefit existing Revit Architecture users, or users of other BIM systems looking to expand their knowledge.
