Thank you very much for informing me about the curriculum. As a member of ISET I am deeply interested in the course, but shall not be able to do so since I am now Team Leader of NH 22 and shall have to stay at Chandigarh during the course dates. I am now forwarding the mail to our HR dept so that they can send some people to attend the course. I wish you all success in conducting such academic currycula for practising engineers. Thanks
