Visual Design Exhibition
A Visual Design Exhibition of students' work from this course is held annually in DFEi in May, providing an opportunity for students to showcase the skills and knowledge they have acquired.
Building Information Modelling (BIM)
Building Information Modelling techniques are a key focus of this course. Students will be introduced to software such as Revit to create the building information needs of an entire building project.
Assessment techniques will be used to assess the knowledge and skills that students will have achieved on successful completion of modules:
- Student Record
- Collection of Work
- Examination (Written)
- Skills Demonstration
Graduates are eligible to apply through the CAO and/or the Higher Education Links Scheme to a range of higher certificate and degree programmes, at Universities, Institutes of Technology and Technological Universities. Please contact the relevant higher education institute for further information.
Graduates will be equipped with the skills for employment opportunities in surveying, construction, 3D design within the architectural, engineering and design sectors
