I have two questions.
1. This course consists of three levels, what are the equivalant courses ( NDT , NCT etc. ) in outside world to these three levels and are they publised in goverment sectors.
2.Is there are any issues not to award BSc certificate instead of the IESL Engineering Graduate Diploma certificate. According to my knowledge the KDU award a BSc certificate why IESL does not do it.
I have got through only two (02) simple passes from Mathematics subjects of GCE A/L exam. Please confirm me whether i am qualified to follow Civil Engineering certificate course in IESL.
