Important Updates to Advising Services

Students,  Happy New Year from the Undergraduate Advising Office! We hope you had a fun and relaxing holiday break.  We are writing to communicate changes to our advising services this spring semester.

On-Campus Job Opportunity: Scan to BIM architect

Company Description:  Signetron is developing the next generation of Scan to BIM workflow for envelope retrofit of existing buildings with the ultimate goal of improving building energy efficiency. Our system will provide CAM files for panel manufacturers who will pre-fabricate insulation panels offsite from the captured as-built conditions. The goal is to compress the onsite retrofit cycle to less than 7 days, for a multi-family low rise residential building, without the need for occupants to leave the building. Job Title:  Scan to BIM architect.  Job Description:  The Scan to BIM challenge here is that existing buildings are not plumb or 90 degrees and these imperfections need to be reflected in CAD models. This job entails an investigation into existing Scan to BIM tools available in the marketplace and identifying whether existing tools are sufficiently flexible for what we need to do. Examples of such tools include Revit, AutoCAD, cloudworx, RhinoCAD, Pointsense, CloudCom
