SHORT HISTORY 

The DIGI SKILLS training program started in 2016 with an experimental mode: it was a workshop valid as an internship to answer to the growing requests for digital skills from students. Following these first step and the growing requests DIGI SKILLS entered in the general programs as an opportunity for students and became mandatory: DIGI SKILLS are formed by parametric modelling teaching in BIM environment that students can develop starting from university for their future job with more awareness.

 

FORMATIVE OBJECTIVES

The aim of the courses is to allow the students to be autonomous in the choice of the parametric modelling path and BIM applications, and to be able to use one of the software offered; courses are different and give different paths. The student can obtain credits in one course only but can follow if desired and with the accordance of the teacher more than one course.

 

PLANNED OFFER 

The scheduled offer includes parametric modelling courses that uses software such as Revit, Archicad, Grasshopper, and Dynamo in a minor extension.
For the single complete programs, see the pages of the teachers, while here are some general items of them, 

 

  • Revit
    Introduction to BIM, concepts of interoperability, general structure of software, software and interfaces, database organization 2D and 3D modeling of architectural objects, properties of objects and libraries, relationships between objects, masses, surfaces, phase management, clash detection concepts, graphic design, relations with Dynamo.
  • Archicad
    Introduction to BIM, concepts of interoperability, control of constructive elements, abacus compilation and project libraries, management of relations, usable applications, relations with Grasshopper.
  • Grasshopper
    The course provides knowledge of the most advanced digital modelling techniques, deepening methodologies of algorithmic and parametric modelling with particular attention to the field of architecture. The program focuses on the main recent tools for generation and control of complex geometries. At the beginning of the course the main working methods necessary to use Rhino are summarized.

 

PROFESSORS/TEACHERS IN  2019
Also for this year, the DIGI SKILLS teachers come from the professional world having had experience in teaching also; they deal with professional positions such as BIM manager or BIM consultant, having consolidated and recognized international experience.

 

RULES TO OBTAIN CREDITS
The 4 digi skills credits are obtained with the following mandatory rules:

 

  • having the exact course in the study plan
  • 80% of the lessons certified by the class registers
  • positive result of the two tests carried out during the lessons or of the only ones provided as recovery within the scheduled lessons
