With the rapid development of China's construction industry, the demand for engineering management talents with structural knowledge is increasingly growing. "Building Structures," as a core course in engineering management and cost estimation specialization, holds a pivotal position. It not only covers the principles of structural design and construction requirements of buildings but is also closely related to engineering costs, project management, and other aspects. However, traditional teaching methods of "Building Structures" often overemphasize theoretical teaching and neglect the cultivation of practical application abilities, diverging from the goals of applied undergraduate education. To better meet societal demands and cultivate engineering management and cost estimation professionals with practical abilities, this paper deeply explores the teaching reform of the "Building Structures" course. To ensure the successful implementation of these reforms, specific implementation plans and safeguard measures are proposed. By utilizing a variety of teaching methods, the practical application abilities, problem-solving abilities, and innovative thinking abilities of students are enhanced. After a prolonged period of exploration, more competitive talents in engineering management and cost estimation have been cultivated, contributing to the sustainable development of the construction industry.
