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 Prof. Renzo Rosso at Politecnico Di Milano


"Digging Deep: Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering" offers a comprehensive exploration into the fundamental aspects of geotechnical engineering. This course covers a range of topics, starting with the basics of soil mechanics, soil properties, and classification, delving into the complexities of groundwater seepage, stresses in soil, and shear strength. It progresses through discussions on various foundational aspects such as lateral earth pressure, bearing capacity, and different types of foundations. Additionally, the course encompasses advanced subjects like earthquake engineering, soil dynamics, and geotechnical site characterization. Students will also gain insights into geotechnical failures, risk assessment, and the emerging trends in this field. With a structured curriculum and lectures each designed for a 20-minute duration, this course aims to provide a well-rounded understanding of geotechnical engineering, catering to individuals seeking a solid introduction to this crucial field of civil engineering.

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.
