Civil Structural Design, Model and Drafting Skill Set

State ID: GAA34

This skill set is part of the RII50515 Diploma of Civil Construction Design, a nationally recognised qualification. Take your career in Building Information Modeling (BIM) to the next level with analytical and practical design skills based around construction industry standards and software tools.

Discover how to use tools like Revit BIM and Robot Structure analysis to construct and analyse CAD models to Australian design standards. Use your designs to develop detailed plans for workflow management and collaboration across disciplines.

Upon completion of the course a student will be able to demonstrate they have learned:

  • Knowledge of structural requirements, local building and construction standards, codes and practices
  • Structural mechanics: loads, analysis, materials, and design of members such as columns, beams, trusses and portal frames
  • To model structural elements from basic beams, columns and walls through to more real-life complex examples in addition to exploring a variety of functions such as structural connections and advanced steel
  • Simulating various load conditions to determine the strength and stiffness of structure by reporting component stress, strain and deformations
  • Drafting, scheduling and the production of drawings and specifications for building project

This course consists of a weekly 3 hour workshop on campus, as well as an additional 6 to 8 hours a week of online study using our a Blackboard Learning Management System. 

There are prerequisite requirements which are covered as recognition of prior learning (RPL)
