“Recently we rented classroom space at ESD for four sessions of a Short Course on Hybrid Electric Vehicle Systems for engineers in the automotive industry. This turned out to be an outstanding experience due to ESD’s central location and easy access for all the students. The service provided by ESD staff was superb and made everyone feel comfortable in a professional setting. The class size grew four times from session one to session four. Additional space was made available with appropriate teaching materials, including easels and flip charts. Every request was accommodated with a smile. We will certainly consider using the facility again as the need arises in future and recommend the same to others.”

“I have used the ESD offices for several meetings with multiple parties where we needed large gathering rooms and smaller work rooms. The facilities were excellent, and the staff very accommodating. The office location is very accessible with ample free parking. Each room had the level of technology needed for a productive meeting. The rooms can be arranged in classroom style or for small groups; the flexibility of the arrangements has helped to enhance group participation and has been key to successful outcomes. I would highly recommend the ESD facilities for small and large groups.”
