Implementing RIB CostX® into classes:
Workshops incorporate hands-on building measurement software training using RIB CostX®. Guest lectures of integrating BIM and electronic measurement using RIB CostX® are arranged to introduce the most updated quantity surveying practice in the construction industry. Practical tasks of building measurement using RIB CostX® based on 2D drawings and 3D/BIM models are given in order to enhance students’ engagement in tutorials.
The student response was positive. Students were taught to utilize RIB CostX® to produce Bills of Quantities (BOQs), to gather information using engineering drawings and electronic models, and to develop their skills in electronic measurement.
RIB CostX® is very easy to use and install and has full functionalities for practical use. We find the educational standalone licenses, which are provided to academic staff and students, to be particularly convenient for teaching the course away from campus when the situation requires.
