5 Technical Universities have been added to broaden the reach of ISEA Project Phase II to a large category of engineering students enrolled through various private engineering colleges affiliated to these technical universities. These universities with suitable hand holding by ISRDC/RCs are expected to promote information security courses not only in their own units but also in their affiliated engineering colleges across the State. These technical universities would also conduct faculty training programs for the faculties of their affiliated engineering colleges.
