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 "Introduction to Pillars of Construction: Foundation Engineering" course offers a comprehensive exploration of foundational principles in construction. Over a series of meticulously crafted lectures, this course delves into the critical aspects of foundation engineering. Beginning with an emphasis on the significance of strong foundations in construction, the curriculum progresses to cover various types of foundations, including shallow and deep foundations, while spotlighting soil mechanics and the essentials of design. The course delves into the intricacies of load-bearing capacities, addressing common issues such as foundation failures and their potential remedies. As the sessions advance, students will navigate through the complexities of mat, raft, and pile foundations, as well as specialized forms like caisson foundations and geotechnical investigations. Advanced topics encompass sustainability, legal considerations, and innovative trends in foundation engineering, alongside case studies highlighting both failures and successes. Ultimately, this course aims to equip learners with a holistic understanding of foundational engineering principles and practices, fostering their ability to address real-world challenges in construction with confidence and expertise.

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.
