The architectural designing with ArchiCAD


This course is taught by industry experts to help position you for organizational success afterward. We guarantee that our skilled lecturers will turn you into a highly productive and successful professional in both local and international marketplaces.

In this course, we will use ArchiCAD of Graphisoft as a very easy-to-use architecture software using BIM technology (Building Information Modeling). The BIM concept is based on the use of 3D modeling with construction information, which generate automatic drawings of floor plans, sections, facades, schedules and details from the two-dimensional reading of the model.

This architecture course is designed for Architects, Architecture students, civil engineering students, Design consultants, urban planners, construction managers, quantity surveyors and civil engineers.

It will help you to gain experience that will support and inspire you to advance in your personal and professional development. First, we will focus on architectural modeling for the early stages of a design process with ArchiCAD, then we will continue with virtual representations for design communication and finally more precise and well-detailed models will be used for construction documents production and for any further development of the ideas.
