Welcome to Forethought India One-on-One Courses. Our program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in their chosen profession. Our instructor for this course is Researcher Ankush Kumar at IIT Guwahati


The course on "Asphalt/Flexible Pavement Recycling" offers a comprehensive exploration of sustainable practices in the construction and maintenance of roadways. This course delves into the principles, techniques, and applications of recycling asphalt and flexible pavements. Covering an array of topics, it introduces students to the fundamentals of pavement recycling, including the various types of asphalt pavements, the benefits and challenges associated with recycling, and the environmental impact of these practices. Advanced methodologies, such as reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), equipment used in recycling, and innovations in the field, are extensively discussed. Additionally, the course touches upon key areas like quality control, economic aspects, design, and long-term performance of recycled pavements. Throughout the lectures, students explore real-world case studies, policies, regulations, and international practices, gaining a holistic understanding of how sustainable pavement recycling contributes to infrastructure development and environmental conservation. The course aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to address the growing demand for eco-friendly road construction and maintenance in the modern world.

At the end of the program, students will receive a certificate & performance letter by the eductor indicating that they have completed the program and acquired the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in their chosen profession.
