The Placement Brochure of 2017 includes the skills acquired by IIRS students through training/education and project work that they have carried out as a part of their Course Curricula. I am sure that the Placement Brochure shall be helpful to the Geospatial Industry, Academia and other Institutions to pick the talent and also provide opportunity to the course participants for their placement.

I wish a splendid future for our students.
