Aditi Shukla

BIM Architect Bhopal, India

The capstone project was my favourite part. It was a glimpse of how projects are handled in the real world. The gamification of the project and our progress made it even more interesting.

Sruthi Sajeevan

Project Engineer, Absal Paul Kingdom of Bahrain

I haven't come across any other platform that has been able to accommodate so many requests and teach so much software in such a short span. Moreover, the Oneistox team has constantly followed up with me whenever I have missed my modules.

Bhairavi Dave

Architect Vadodara, India

I can now see a new perspective of architecture after joining this course. After getting a wider view of the BIM industry from mentors, I realized BIM is as vast as an ocean – and definitely worth diving into!

Aditya Gupta

Project Architect, Team 3 New Delhi, India

This course has been an eye opener in terms of understanding how the AEC industry has changed and how we need to be a part of this change. The enthusiasm of Oneistox team was heartwarming and to see an organization work so hard to make a difference for their students was really nice.

Review of BIM Professional Course, Cohort 01

Diya Dechamma

BIM Architect Bangalore, India

Being a last-bench student back in University, I used to bunk many theory classes and was therefore doubtful of whether or not I'll be able to sit for every session in this course. But seriously, the whole Oneistox team shaped the course in such a crisp way that I never felt like skipping a single class!

Review of BIM Professional Course, Cohort 01

Mohamed Hassan

Junior Architect, Freedom of Design Tamil Nadu, India

I would like to thank the mentors who shaped up all the modules in a beginner-friendly way. All the mentors were very knowledgeable and despite their busy day would still be super responsive to answer any doubts. The one thing I've gained is an enormous amount of confidence to go ahead in my career as BIM professional.

Shreya Kejriwal

Junior Architect, Studio 17 Surat, India

The curriculum aligned really well with my work. It has made the design and construction process more efficient for me and my team at work. Would recommend others to take the course. The current role of architects is slowly becoming obsolete and BIM will definitely make things easier and efficient in the future.

Check out some frequently asked questions.
The course is designed to help you transition from basic 3D CAD modelling to parametric modelling and advanced computational workflows. In 32 weeks, we ensure a comprehensive understanding of Rhino, parametric modelling through Grasshopper, topic specialisation based on your field, and a collaborative capstone project.
Every week, you will have two live classes. In addition, you will have recorded lessons throughout the week with small activities. We expect you to put in a minimum of 8–10 hours of effort (depending on your speed) in a week to fully grasp and apply the concepts of computational design.
The medium of instruction in this course is English.
We have a 24x7 query resolution service. You will be assigned a learning coordinator whom you can contact for any query during the course.
On joining a Oneistox course you get lifetime access to a closed messaging group that includes your batchmates and learning coordinators. This means you always have a group of people with whom you can discuss ideas and troubleshoot problems.
The course equips you with a core specialisation as well as practical experience on a capstone project. These significantly enhance your job prospects. Our team also provides guidance on building your resume and portfolio for a successful career in computational design. In addition, we also run a placement drive during which Oneistox's hiring partners recruit graduates directly to their companies.
Yes, this certificate stands as proof of your skills in industry-relevant computational tools and workflows. Coupled with the new additions to your portfolio made during the course, it will suffice for jobs in AEC firms.
This course does not explore data-intensive concepts like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). However, the skills acquired in this course will build a strong foundation for learners to explore these concepts within the AEC context.
Learners may opt to attend only one Specialised Elective Studio as part of their curriculum.
This course is designed for both professionals and students of architecture and engineering.
Prior knowledge of computational tools and workflows is not required as the course is structured in a beginner-friendly way. However, it is expected that you would have a basic understanding of architectural/engineering principles, 3D modelling, and Revit (only for Computational BIM specialisation).
We understand that some of you might be new to the software. Our support team will be available to guide you throughout. Before the course commences, we make sure to help you install the relevant softwares and plugins and also get acquainted with them so that you're well-prepared.
The required hardware specifications are as follows
Windows System
  • 64-bit Intel or AMD processor (Not ARM)
  • 8 GB memory (RAM) minimum; 16 GB memory (RAM) recommended
  • 40 GB disk space
  • OpenGL 4.1 capable video card is recommended
