The BIM program at NTU offers courses structured as lecture and lab. Each class session covers assigned readings, class textbooks, and the instructor's lecture. The remaining class time takes a hands-on approach to learning software and equipment training.
The goal for the BIM program is to build students with a flexible knowledge in rural architecture, management, technical skills and sustainable products. Each class session covers assigned readings, lectures and hands-on approach to learning software and equipment training. Creating models from point cloud data utilizing Revit and AutoCAD software. Students are encouraged to explore additional software to strengthen their presentations.
We are seeking to extend our student's educational goals and experiences beyond in-class assignments and develop collaborative educational pathways/projects/internships with local organizations and academic institutions. Our students will build a capital in pursuing careers on the Navajo reservation and the Southwestern region.
