Take a Step to BIM Proficiency with ITU Certificate Program
Oct 09, 2016


Building Information Modeling (BIM) Certificate Program organized by Autodesk company, the leader in 3D design and BIM software, in cooperation with ITU will make a new start at ITU Continuing Education Center on 8th October, 2016.

The program will introduce some basic information about BIM, which allows to detect design flaws at the stage of 3D Project design, provides efficient project management opportunities by associating all information on the life cycle of the project with its 3D model. The program, which will examine and implement BIM processes and models utilised in real life, this year as 3 phases in 9 weeks will take place between 8th October – 10th December.

Upon the completion of the Certificate Program course, intended primarily for civil engineering faculty students, will also help students from another engineering and architectural departments to gain a new perspective in their career and will offer you the opportunity to become a BIM specialist. Register now to take part in the course taught by ITU Assoc. Prof. Esin Ergen Pehlevan and Daniel Kazado, Managing Partner at ProCS -Professional Construction Solutions & BIM Advisor and an ITU graduate at the same time.
