In the context of the new era, human society is ushering in the fourth wave of the industrial revolution, which will have profound implications for various industries, especially the construction industry. The upgrading of the construction industry is imperative to adapt to new technologies and trends. In response to the requirements of this era, smart construction is emerging as the way forward. Major universities are responding to national policies by establishing programs in smart construction to meet the growing demand for talent. This is both a response to the demands of the times and strong support for the future development of the construction industry. Smart construction training programs at universities are crucial, and they need to integrate students with new technologies and trends in education to cultivate forward-thinking professionals with practical skills. The core technologies of smart construction include BIM technology, 3D printing, smart machinery, and artificial intelligence. These technologies will redefine the design, construction, and maintenance management of construction projects. For instance, BIM technology can provide comprehensive project information and collaboration, 3D printing can enable efficient construction, smart machinery can autonomously perform tasks, and artificial intelligence can empower construction projects with greater decision-making capabilities. For universities, nurturing professionals in smart construction requires continuously updating educational curricula and providing practical opportunities to ensure that students can master and apply these emerging technologies. This will help produce graduates with innovative thinking and problem-solving abilities, providing strong support for the future development of the smart construction field. This trend will also promote a more intelligent, efficient, and sustainable development of the construction industry.
