Simulation Lab

Given the multidisciplinary nature of the developed program, ICT in AUS Lab will play an essential role in integrating the multiple disciplines in the curriculum. It will include Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Modelling (BIM), Building Performance evaluation and simulation programs, as well as tools for architects in several aspects, including design, analysis, simulation, sketching, and visualization in 2D and 3D as well as information sharing. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are used to study, analyze, and visualize any phenomenon that has a spatial component. This is particularly useful in urban design, community planning, and the site selection process. This is achieved through hardware (15 PC workstations) and software resources for ICT systems and networks. It is also complemented by a printing and plotting facility.
