Hi everyone! My name is Xuan. I am a first-year master's student in the sustainable design and construction program. I graduated from McGill University in Canada with a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. For the past summer, I worked as a civil engineering intern at a construction firm in Beijing. I participated in the construction of an urban redevelopment project assisting an old community of more than 1000 families. I value this work for how it can improve the quality of life for old communities, as I have witnessed first-hand how an old community can be transformed into a younger and sustainable neighbourhood.
I am interested in this course because I want to go into building systems design and learn about BIM and Revit, which are two important tools in the construction industry. My goals for the course are to understand how BIM and Revit are used to design, analyze, and model building systems and use them to develop a cool design!
