Building and Construction Design

Development in the building and construction industry is the best way to show-off the infrastructural capabilities of any country. It is the reason, nowadays all the developed and developing nations are primarily focusing on this industry, thereby opening many opportunities for designers to kick-start their career in this domain. In particular, states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu provide various Building Designing Courses for aspiring designers to hone their skills and become experts in the field. With the rise of the real estate industry, there has been a huge demand for highly qualified architects and designers to construct residential, commercial and industrial buildings. Through these Building Designing Courses, students can gain knowledge of the latest tools and techniques being used in the industry. Moreover, they also gain insight into the theoretical concepts that are associated with the field such as structural engineering, building material, construction management and urban planning.

Our specially designed building and construction design programmes at the Institute of Industrial Design will improve your designing abilities and instantly position you for employment.


With the Fundamentals course at IID students get better knowledge about the concepts, process, work flow of this domain. It lays the foundation for the advance learning. This course covers:

  • Architectural concepts
  • Structural concepts
  • BIM concepts

Architectural Design

With the architectural designing course you get a chance to better understand the technicalities of the architectural designs, such as buildings, urban landscapes, and parks. The course modules include:

  • Floor plan (software used AUTOCAD, PC Architect)
  • Architectural sketching
  • Design visualization (software used SketchUp, 3DS Max, Revit, V-Ray)
  • Estimation and costing (software used AutoSCAN)

Structural Design

The main goal of the structural analysis and design course at IID is to teach students how to create structures that can withstand all applied loads without failing over the period of their intended lives. The curriculum includes:

  • Floor Plan (software used AUTOCAD, PC Architect)
  • Analysis & design (software used STAAD.Pro, ETABS)
  • Detailing (software used RCDC, AutoSTEEL & TEKLA)
  • Estimation and costing (software used AUTOSCAN, AUTOSTEEL)
