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
The courses were well planned and taught. Interesting topics...
