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 Elwakeel Abobakr at Imperial College London


The course "Building Blocks: Materials and Construction Methods" is a comprehensive journey through the fundamental aspects of construction. Delivered in a series of lectures, the course covers a wide array of topics designed to equip learners with a deep understanding of construction materials and methods. Starting with an introduction to various construction materials, their properties, and uses, the course progresses into foundational elements such as site preparation, masonry, concrete, wood, and metal applications in construction. It delves into advanced concepts, including sustainable practices, structural design, insulation, and environmental impact considerations. Additionally, it explores innovations in technology, emerging trends, and building codes, providing insights into high-rise construction, geotechnical engineering, safety regulations, project management, and legal aspects of construction. The course culminates with practical case studies and discussions about industry trends, offering a well-rounded perspective for both beginners and those seeking a deeper understanding of construction materials and techniques.


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.
