Curtin team undergoes digital construction management training

Civil and construction engineering lecturers and students of Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) recently completed the first phase of an online ‘BIM Project’ training designed to familiarise them with modern Building Information Modelling (BIM) digital tools and project management solutions for the construction industry.

The training was organised by the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering and the Curtin Highway Infrastructure and Innovation Hub (CHIRI) at Curtin Malaysia’s Faculty of Engineering and Science in collaboration with PCSS Consultancy Sdn Bhd, a Sarawak-based project management consultancy.

The training was an outcome of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Curtin Malaysia and PCSS Consultancy for collaboration in academic development, staff and student advancement and project management-related research signed in October last year.

It was also part of the Faculty of Engineering and Science’s ‘Digitalisation Initiatives 2020 BIM Project’, which aims to provide opportunities for staff and students to gain practical experience with modern tools for digitalisation in construction.
