ETCO INDIA has supported large number of customers to achieve successful completion and
acceptance of Sustainability, Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Procurement, Virtualisation,
Cloud Computing, Cloud Computing Security, Retail, and Project Management Dissertations and
Theses Research projects. We hereby present the key topics that have been delivered by our
customers successfully as a result of our mentoring and academic consulting services. Please note
that these topics have been paraphrased and are not the original ones to ensure that the
customers do not suffer due to matches.
The following topics have been presented not only to publish the areas in which ETCO INDIA has successfully supported customers in Dissertation
and Thesis Research projects but also to present an idea about the theoretical foundation upon which new topics can be developed that have not yet
been addressed adequately. Please note that new problems requiring research efforts always evolve from the empirical solutions to the old problems
and hence the world of research keeps moving on.

SUBJECT AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION pertaining to our services to view the broader perspective of topic
building for Dissertations and Theses.
