The Southwest Florida College Institute of Interior Design welcomes a new professor and with it a new course as Zachary Smith - a former master''s student at rival Fort Myers institution, Florida International University- will be instructing a course in what is quickly becoming the modern standard in industry software, Revit.

"There is no one else around here that''s teaching Revit," claims program manager of Computer Aided Drafting and Design at Southwest Paul Engler. "There is a tremendous amount of versatility with Revit that makes for a whole different routine than what architects and designers have done in the past."

Courses in the 3D modeling program - hailed as "the next generation for computer-aided design" by Cape-Coral-Daily-Breeze.com - were previously available only in larger institutions in neighboring cities such as
Miami and Tampa, but now architecture students in southwest Florida are offered a more robust curriculum involving hands-on training, teacher demonstrations and facilitation.

Southwest Florida College, founded in 1974, offers online courses to meet the needs of students whose free time is in short supply.
