Digital Architecture - Package 1

Duration: 120 Hours - Part Time

Design-based Interactive Learning I All Computer Aided Tools for Architectural Design in 1 Place I 1-to-1 Training by Architect-Instructors

This programme introduces spatial design students to industry-standard sophisticated soft-ware tools for design visualisation. This is instrumental for creating graphic visuals of designs or ideas. The easiest form of visualisation is through handmade illustrations also called a sketch. Using software, it is possible to generate photo quality realistic illustrations using a process called 3D Rendering. It may be created as a still image, referred to as an illustration, or as an animated video generally referred to as a walkthrough.


Design students & graduates, specifically focussing on spatial design can take up this programme to diffenrentiate themselves by enhancing their design skills & employability. It would be instrumental & beneficial to students & graduates of the following design streams

  • Architecture
  • Interior Design
  • Visual & Graphic Design
  • Fashion Design
  • Animation & Visualization
  • Product Design


Following industry-standard soft-ware tools for design visualization in a programme structure designed, developed and certified by AUTODESK will be administered to students over a period of 40 Hours for each through design-based lab exercises:

  • Autodesk AUTOCAD 2014 ---------- 40 Hours
  • Autodesk REVIT 2014 ---------------- 40 Hours
  • Autodesk 3D Studio MAX ----------- 40 Hours


At the end of the pragramme, students should be able to:

  • Draft 2D & work with Layers; Draft 3D, model & edit models using Meshes & Nurbs
  • Use Render Effects to add glows to materials and lights for a photo-realistic output
  • Create a lighting set-up using attenuation, shadow parameters and projector lights
  • Create atmospheres: Daylight systems
  • Use Render Effects to add glows to materials and lights
  • Understand the Mapping Types: using the material / map navigator; using diffuse maps, bump maps, opacity maps, reflection and refraction maps, displacement maps, environment maps
  • Create Compound Materials and Maps and generate coordinates
  • Understand various visual properties of Architecture & Design materials
  • Understand the animation basics: the time slider, time configuration and key framing
  • Create a preview animation and set the output for still and animated images
  • Choose the destination of rendered output with due regard for appropriate compression technologies
  • Understand the uses and applications of 3d computer animations in the fields of architecture, interior design, 3d visualisation and in the media generally

  • State-of-the-Art Computer Lab
  • 7.2 MBPS & Wi-Fi
  • Library & Resource Center
  • Ambient Lecture Halls
