Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements
Applicants should have a minimum of a Level 6 qualification (or equivalent) in an engineering discipline such as mechanical, electrical or building services engineering. Equivalent recognition may be given through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process on an individual case-by-case basis to candidates who have not achieved this academic standard but who can demonstrate significant relevant professional experience in the Built Environment discipline.

What is RPL?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is when formal recognition is given for what you already know prior to starting on a programme or module. With recognition of prior learning the focus is on learning and not on experience as such. You can apply for RPL in any MTU accredited programme or module. Programmes which are accredited by professional bodies or any external awarding bodies may have their own procedures for RPL which you should refer to.

The course cost is normally €1,950 however a 30% subsidy from the Construction Professional Skillnet is currently available to eligible applicants. This reduces the course cost to €1,365 (a saving of €585).

In order to avail of funding you must be working in the private sector. Public sector workers are not eligible for Skillnet funding.

All private sector businesses of any size, including sole traders, that are based in the Republic of Ireland are eligible to undertake part-funded upskilling with Skillnet Ireland.

Please note: the company must be paying the course fee. Funding is not available to individual applicants.

Application Deadline: 23rd September 2023. Apply online.

Overview
This programme aimed at those who wish to enhance their 3D drawing and design skills in order to operate within a Building Information Management (BIM) regulated environment. It is suitable for those employed or seeking employment with design consultants or engineering/facilities departments within the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, medical device, food manufacturing and water treatment sectors.

The programme has been specifically designed in response to industry needs for upskilling as identified by the South West Regional Skills Forum (SWRSF). The SWRSF (made up of manufacturing, mechanical and MEP consultancy companies) has identified BIM and Revit as two of their top three priority areas for upskilling.

Participants will be provided with the skills necessary to contribute effectively through the use of BIM related software applications, specifically Autodesk Revit for Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing (MEP), in conjunction with a specialised module dedicated to piping design.

Students will develop the ability to use modern computer- based engineering tools to solve well defined building services design problems and communicate effectively with the engineering community. They will learn to create and place equipment, route and coordinate pipework, add electrical components and use P&ID data all within a multidiscipline 3D environment. The programme will also incorporate the use of Piping Standards (BS, DIN, ANSI, etc.) and engineering symbols standards.

Modules
• Revit Introduction – introduction to the BIM environment
• Revit-MEP – multidisciplinary services design
• 3D Piping Design – detailed piping design in a virtual environment


Specific content includes:
• Intelligent P&ID generation linked to 3D Piping Packages
• 3D Piping and Equipment Modelling
• Estimating pipe sizes and duct sizes using Revit software
• 3D Isometrics and BOM generation
• Utilising Project Browser to generate and manage useful views
• Generating reports and schedules using Revit software

Award
Special Purpose Award - 15 ECTS Credits at Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications, awarded by Munster Technological University.
