3D Visualization for the Built Environment

Future Ready. Faster.

Mohawk's wide selection of micro-credentials offer flexible learning experiences that will give you focused, in-demand skills to enhance your career.

The 3D Visualization for the Built Environment Micro-credential will provide individuals with skills development in Building Information Modeling (BIM), 3D Rendering Tools, GIS, Digital Twins and Virtual Reality/3D Printing applications for design, presentation, construction and ongoing operations and maintenance of buildings and spaces.

Program Highlights 

  • Gain a solid understanding of how BIM is applied in each phase of a building’s lifecycle and how all stakeholders need to contribute to BIM
  • Recreate existing built form and topography in order to convey the impact of proposed development
  • Create 3D models with realistic finishes, complete with lighting and shadow impacts
  • Identify how BIM can promote Digital Twins to make future buildings better and more efficient
  • Explore methods for team collaboration on projects
  • Demonstrate the real-world impact of design by moving from standard 2D layouts and elevations to 3D virtual reality and physical models

What you'll learn 

  • Learn all about BIM (Building Information Modeling)
  • Create and render 2D/3D models which include massing, detailed interiors, shadow analysis of structures, and exporting information for energy analysis
  • Build a construction and existing facility twin through an examination of the core components of what a digital twin is
  • Operate simple and advanced features of GIS software.
  • Use multiple 3D modeling software to create, modify, and Render 3D models for VR viewing and 3D printing. 
  • Create and convert 3D models from a variety of 2D and 3D data sources
