I will guide you through the transformation from "old-school" engineer with zero programming experience to engineer of the future who can automate... almost everything.

When considering learning parametric design you probably think...

“It’s extremely difficult!

“It will take ages before 
I can apply it…”

“A day has 24 hours and
I have projects to deliver

“Is it at all useful for engineers?”


I have been there too!

Don't worry, I thought about it all when creating this unique training program.

Here’s what I have prepared for you

Grasshopper Fundamentals Training

Highly practical Grasshopper online training

Join architects and engineers from more than 80 companies

Is this training program for you?

  • You understand that the character of design projects, where “change is the only constant” requires solutions that make adapting to the change time- and cost-efficient, and effortless.

  • You realize that solving design challenges manually is not what a self-respecting modern engineer should do.

  • You grew tired of repetitive manual tasks and want to make your everyday work more sensible, efficient, and not to mention, exciting.

  • You want to take your design skills to the next level to create more advanced models and work on challenging projects that require the application of the newest technologies.

  • You want to grow as a professional, have more confidence in your own competence, and approach challenges in a creative manner to produce long-term and sustainable solutions.

  • Grasshopper Fundamentals is not “just another course”. It is your first step becoming the engineer you want to be – highly skilled, independent, and forward-thinking. Rome was not built in “8 weeks”, but you can definitely build solid fundaments of your Parametric Design proficiency within this time – if you let me guide you through the process with loads of practical knowledge and fun, engaging assignments.

Why this training program?

Years ago, all by myself, I went through the transition you are about to begin. 

Since then I had the privilege to work on world-class projects and my work was recognized with awards on national and world scale. Knowing how much it changed my professional life, giving me the opportunity to work on projects I have never dreamt of, I want to help you get there too.

The training has a unique structure, balancing 20% of theory with 80% of practice. The tasks you will be working on are not only practical – they are engaging and gamified, with clues for one task hidden in another. They challenge you but at the same time are manageable and match your level of expertise at every step of the training.

This training program is a perfect blend of my experiences of self-learning and working on top-class Parametric design challenges.

Is there any other way?
Well, there sure is...

Or ...

Choose Grasshopper Fundamentals Training Program that combines essential theory, hundreds of hands-on exercises, 10-years' experience in design and teaching, and exciting examples from real-life projects!

A program created by Engineer for Engineers who want to revolutionize their way of working and...

...take the first step to becoming Engineer 4.0

Why am I so confident?

  • I am an Academic Leturer at Zigurat Global Institute of Technology and Norwegian University of Science and Technology. I know what is difficult for students and I know how to teach
  • I have been working as Parametric Design Expert for years on the biggest projects in Scandinavia. Among others, the Randselva Bridge project – winner of Tekla BIM award for the best, biggest BIM project in the world where Grasshopper was the main software used for parametrization
  • I was chosen the best young engineer in Europe in the EFCA 2021 Future Leaders Competition
  • I was responsible for introducing Parametric Design to all disciplines in one of the biggest consultant companies in Europe
  • In 2019, I co-founded the BIM Corner which quickly became one of the most famous industry blogs in the world
  • And last but not least, I experienced first hand how parametric design skills elevated my career and satisfaction from what I am doing, and it’s my honest wish to help you achieve this.

Your account will be created on the educational platform immediately after payment. Details on how to access the training will be provided by email. If you bought more than one training access, I will contact you directly.

You will receive access to all modules immediately after purchase.

How is the Grasshopper Fundamentals Training formatted?

This is an online course. It consists of 23 hours of recorded video lessons ( You can find demo lessons here Computational ThinkingData Tree ).

Additionally, you will get access to documents, glossaries, presentations and component lists. All of this will be available on the online platform. All you have to do is log in to the platform after purchase and this vault full of information will be available to you.

After each Grasshopper and Rhino lesson, there are practical assignments that will help you better understand and implement what you’ve learned. Practice is key to successful learning, so I have prepared more than 300 practical exercises for you.

What are the payment methods? Will I receive an invoice?

You can pay for the course using a credit/debit card or through direct bank transfer. Please choose the option that is most suitable for you. Additionally, everyone will receive proof of purchase in the form of an invoice. Please provide all the information you want on your invoice during checkout.

Are you serious about this guarantee?

es, of course. My primary goal is for you to learn Grasshopper and implement it in your day-to-day work. If you decide that you are not getting what you wanted out of this course or would like a refund for any reason during the first 30 days after purchase, I will fully refund you.

You will receive the full amount you paid refunded into your account, no questions asked. Ok, maybe one question asked, what would make my course better? But you don’t have to answer it. The refund is still unconditional.

I'm starting my journey with Visual Programming, is this training suitable for me?

Yes! I wrote this training so that it would be easily understood by everyone, especially beginners. The course is designed to slowly build up your programing knowledge so that even if you begin with ZERO programing experience, by the end of the course, you will be able to get through some advanced programming topics. By the end of the course, I am confident that you will have the necessary skills to fully utilize Grasshopper at your work.

Is there a support group?

Yes! We’re using a Discord group for our online community. Access to the group will be restricted to students, and comments will be monitored. There will be no trolls and no trolling. Since this is the first edition of the Grasshopper Fundamentals Training, the community is just starting to grow. I am confident that great discussions will take place there every day!

I will be an active member of the group and will help students and answer questions along with the community. I will also organize two Live Q&A sessions during the training course through this group.

How do I convince my manager to buy this training for me?

Grasshopper Fundamentals Training is an obvious advantage for you as an engineer but also for your company. You can always try to get reimbursement for your work!

If you work as an engineer, consultant, or architect and you aren’t sure how to get your employer to fund this training, I created a One Pager for your manager that will help persuade them to purchase the training for you.

I am already using Grasshopper at my work. Will I still learn something from this training?

Absolutely!

Even if you’re an advanced user, I would recommend that you go through all the materials. I promise that you will learn new things.

Many advanced Grasshopper users went through this training and still learned A LOT. In GFT, I go through all the tips and tricks necessary to become an expert in Grasshopper. (I spent last two years summarizing all of them). I am 100% sure that even if you have used Grasshopper, you will find something new in this training.

Moreover, I also go over how to build well-structured and straightforward scripts. Therefore, you can collaborate with other Grasshopper users and not be ashamed of your ‘Spaghetti Monster’ scripts anymore.

Grasshopper Fundamental Training is a well-structured course. If you still have problems understanding data trees, don’t know how to work with complicated data structures, or feel uncertain about using Grasshopper, then please join me in GFT.

Remember that if it turns out that this training is not advanced enough for you, you can always request a refund within the first 30 days and get 100% of your money back.

Can I buy multiple licenses for my team or group in a single purchase?

This information is especially relevant for companies. YES, you can buy multiple licenses by placing one group order. You can do this by just increasing the number of items in your cart. I will contact you after the payment has been confirmed.

Don’t forget! For every 7 purchases, you will automatically get one for free. If you buy 14, you will get two and so on. After paying for the order, I will send you all information on how users can access the learning platform.

Is this a subscription course? Does the license expire?

Nope! This is a one-time purchase. When you buy the Grasshopper Fundamentals Training, you’ll always have access to it.

Not only that, but you’ll get all updates and additions for free. I plan on constantly updating and improving the training over the next couple of years!

How much time will it take to go through the training?

It is an 8-week program, and on average, you will need about 5 hours per week to watch all the videos, read through the course materials and go over all the practical exercises. Statistics from users that have done this training show that you need about 40 hours to complete Grasshopper Fundamentals Training.

Remember, don’t worry if you don’t have time to start the course right now. You have lifetime access, so you can start and go through the lessons whenever you have time.

Do I need a license for Rhino/Grasshopper?

Grasshopper comes together with the installation of Rhino. Rhino 8 Evaluation can be downloaded from the official Rhino website for free. After registration, you will receive a ready-to-use 90-day full license. GFT is an 8 weeks program, and this license is enough to get you through all the course modules with an extra month after you have finished the training.

Do I have to start learning right now?

No, you don’t have to, but I strongly recommend starting together with others. If you start along with the other students, you are more likely to finish the training. I am going to organize a live Q&A session after every second week of the training so that I can assist you and help with any points you may be having difficulty with.

Do you offer a certificate of completion?

Yep! Anyone who completes the training will get a certificate in a pdf format with their name on it, showing that they’ve completed the Grasshopper Fundamentals Training. This can be useful to claim reimbursement from your employer, to share on social media, or to just feel great about your accomplishment!

All Clear?


Great, now we can start learning together!

After joining the GFT program, congratulate yourself!

In just a few short weeks, you’ll gain necessary skills and you will be on the right path to becoming an Engineer of the future. And if you are still here but have not hit this button yet…
