Implementing RIB CostX® into classes:
We started implementing RIB CostX® in our curriculum from 2018 at both our Reading and Malaysia campuses. Since then we have supported over 100 students every year to learn and apply the software to measurement and cost planning. The teaching of RIB CostX® is aligned with the New Rules of Measurement (NRM) and RIB CostX® supports us with this.
RIB CostX® is one of the practical skills that enables students entering the professional world to be productive right from the start. We have had some of our students getting involved in major projects, as they are able to apply their RIB CostX® skills on the job.
There are many tools out there, but RIB CostX® is ahead of the competition when it comes to computerised quantification, measurement and estimating construction works; as well as integration with BIM. RIB CostX® is a core part of the array of practical skills that today’s quantity surveying students require and we are happy to collaborate with RIB in delivering this.
