The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras), one of the most prestigious institutes for technological education and research in India, has completed its first leg of placements.

Students at the institute have received 740 offers from 240 companies. Out of these 740 offers, 717 students have bagged core sector jobs. The total number of candidates who registered for placement is 1294.

This year, there was an increase in the number of recruiters from the consulting sector.

Another major highlight was the rise in the number of dual degree and M.Tech students being placed at companies in core, R&D and PSU sectors.

 

“Most branches reached 60% placement in phase I itself. The education sector will pick up in phase II with several educational Institutions coming to the campus. A sharp rise was also seen in consulting jobs,” an IITM release said.

“We consistently received encouraging emails from all the companies with regard to their participation in the placement process and were hopeful despite of the Chennai rains delaying the same by few weeks,” says professor V Babu, advisor, training and placements, IIT Madras.
