    Very informative post. I wanted to know regarding the course and its advantages as i was planning to do it but was not so sure as it is a very unique program in itself. But now i am more confident about my career choice. Now i will soon be enrolling myself for M.tech (structural engineering) from UPES dehradun for sure as i’ve heard placements were fantastic this year. I would also love to grow in as a professional from this university.
