What does it train you for?
The course in "Digital Technologies for Architecture" is a professionally oriented three-year degree course aimed at those interested in a technical Degree that leads quickly to employment. The CdL trains a versatile modern professional figure capable of responding to today's needs expressed by the sectors of architecture in which the common denominator of activities is the digital declination of the various disciplines with a specific focus on the most advanced digital techniques of representation and communication of architecture. The course envisages training activities in the area of basic disciplines and teachings aimed at providing the knowledge - both theoretical and practical - necessary to operate in the field of design processes, realisation and management of architectural works, territory management, cartographic and architectural survey, as well as graphic restitution through the most advanced technologies available. Finally, graduates will be able to operate in the field of technical and economic feasibility, cost calculation, the production and realisation process of architectural works both from a technical and regulatory and administrative point of view. In line with the practical vocation of the Course, ample space is given to laboratory training activities, as well as to internships in companies, technical studies, construction companies or public bodies.
What do you learn?
The Degree programme trains a versatile figure in the field of architecture who is able to: • Use digital photogrammetric and laser scanning techniques to survey architectural artefacts; • Resume the architectural project through the use of CAD and the application of the principles of parametric architectural modelling; • Apply the BIM methodology and information modelling and using technical documentation and dedicated software for modelling objects and producing drawings; • Represent and modelling the built environment through virtual reconstruction of historical and contemporary architectural artefacts and digital visualisation of architecture; • Manage spatial data in digital format through the use of GIS; • Manage work and site accounting procedures through the use of specific software for the production of estimated metric calculations, technical specifications, measurement booklets, work progress reports, maintenance plans, etc; • Verify the correct application of safety procedures in site management, planning and directing works and supervising construction and distribution aspects relating to modest constructions; • Apply public and private works legislation, town planning instruments and building permits and carry out forensic consultancy activities.
What can you do with it?
The graduated technician will be a multi-purpose figure capable of using the most innovative digital technologies available today and with support functions for design and consulting activities carried out by more specialised professionals or in an autonomous manner. The main foreseen job opportunities are freelance activities, employed in the technical role of public administrations or engineering and architecture companies, legal or economic-commercial companies, building companies, real estate management, public law bodies for the management and control of the territory. The prosecution of studies in Master Degrees is not a natural outcome for courses in this class, but can be carried out after the necessary educational debts have been met.
