Building Information Modeling

Purdue University in West Lafayette

Combine your talent in computer graphics with your interest in construction for a career in the AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) industry. You’ll study construction materials and building methods and use AutoCAD or Revit to create digital versions of structures that can be viewed from various angles. Your skills will be appreciated by project managers, estimators, architects, designers, the construction team and the customers themselves.

The Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one of 10 academic colleges at Purdue University. The Polytechnic specializes in team-based labs where you’ll test ideas, take things apart and put them back together — only better. You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers desire.
