Rishika Agarwal rated 4 out of 5 stars
I f one is looking for a course rigorous in engineering technology, this is not a course you should look forward to. This is a management cum engineering science course which covers a lot of subject, but on an overview basis rather than detailed insights in subjects pertaining to both energy and environment
