Pune: Bentley Institute recently collaborated with JSPM Group of Institutes to open Building Information Modeling (BIM) Advancement Laboratory in Pune at Tathawade campus. The centre will foster BIM engineering knowledge among students and educators.
Vice President and Global Head of Bentley Institute Vinayak Trivedi; Vice Chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune University Dr Nitin R Karmalkar; Vice President of ARK Infosolutions Binish Parekh; Director, Planning and Development, JSPM Group, RS Joshi; Principal, RSCOE, RK Jain and Director Tathawade Campus, PP Vitkar were present at the inauguration. The laboratory will be useful for students of civil and mechanical engineering.
Jain said that more than 100 teachers have been trained over three days on these softwares at BIM advancement laboratory. Trivedi said, “In these days of mega infrastructural projects, the focus of architects, engineers, constructors, owner-operators is on executing projects within time and cost - which is at the heart of 5D BIM.”
Director, Sales and Marketing, Bentley Institute, Murali Rambhatla added that such BIM labs leverage technology through collaborative online and classroom courses, to provide students with complex simulations and scenario-based learning to develop knowledge and skills that stick with learners long after they leave the classroom, making them industry-ready.
