A victory for SpaRRCky: Student-built battery-electric car crosses the finish line

April 30, 2018

RRC Shell Eco-marathon 2018After two and a half years of hard work, a team of Mechanical Engineering Technology students have landed Red River College on the Shell Eco-marathon’s leaderboard for the first time.

The team placed 14th in the battery-electric category at the Sonoma, California event, where they were one of only 55 teams (out of the 100 teams competing) who passed inspection and made successful runs on the track.

“I feel very proud of the team. It’s been a huge commitment and it was amazing to watch SpaRRCky (the College’s battery-electric vehicle) every time it lapped around us on the track,” says Bin Yang, who was the RRC team’s manager until he graduated last December. Read More →

May Autodesk REVIT Courses – Spaces still open

April 18, 2018

Intro to BIM with Autodesk Revit Level 1 – CIVC – 1015

This course will teach the concepts of building information modeling, parametric design, and construction documentation through Autodesk’s Revit software. Through the use of intelligent building components and interdependent views of the building model, students will see how and why this type of software is transforming the way we produce presentation and construction documentation with the added ability to glean statistical and quantitative information from it.

A three-day hands-on step by step experience with Revit software. Build a model. Customize the components. Output presentation and working construction drawings start to finish. Problem solve and network with other likeminded professionals.

Date: May 7-9, 2018

Time: 8:00 am to 4:00 pm

Cost: $750 + GST

 

Intermediate Revit Level 2- CIVL 1075

 This course will build upon the concepts of building information modeling learned in Level 1 and introduce topics that include the creation and modification of parametric Revit families, using details lines to enhance construction documents and model management.
