What is the placement record of the Department?

The dept puts strong focus on campus placements of its students in all programs. The campus placements are done through our central placement dept. namely SPA ( School of Professional Attachment) which has tie up with a large number of companies hiring B Tech/M Tech engineering graduates. In addition to  central placement , the dept makes also supplements these efforts with placements in niche , high end companies.

Therefore year after year top companies like Deloitte,  TCS, Samsung, Vodafone, Orange, E&Y , Reliance , Mentor Graphics and many many more come to the campus for placement. The number of companies that come here for recruitment is increasing with every successive year. Our students from ECE   have been doing very well in the corporate world and that brings these companies here again and again and hire more and more students as is evident from the data given underneath.

As can be seen, the placement record is excellent with almost 100% placements for last so many years. This year also (2102-2016 batch) , the placements have already touched 90% and are expected to be 100%  by June , 2016 when the present batch passes out.

The starting pay packages compare favourably with the trend and range from Rs.3.5 Lacs to Rs.10.0 lacs per annum   All the companies that come for the recruitment give the students a written test (generally aptitude and logical reasoning with a small content of  technical questions) followed by a technical and HR interview and sometimes group discussions.

We also get feedback from these companies about our students so that we can work  to improve their employability further. This has led us to conduct preparatory  placement tests and interviews for our students to improve their preparedness for the actual tests. The preparation for the placement also includes the GK Modules and PDP Classes being conducted by the department for the students before they reach the final year. The students are also counselled by the assigned placement counsellors from the department who interact with the students regularly in a very friendly manner right from first year and given advice regarding on various career options as well as the areas of improvement like  their communication skills, their body language and spoken language etc. The Special sessions are conducted by  the dept to improve these technical skills and soft skills.Tthese features are unique to the department as these are the initiatives taken by the EECE Department only. All these efforts have borne fruit and our recruitment now is higher than ever before.

Some students are keen on further studies and many are studying in prestigious universities in India and abroad. Some want to be entrepreneurs and we have many in our alumni doing successful business. As given above , the placement s for the batch B Tech ECE 2012-2016 has already touched 90% and shall reach 100% by June,2016 when students pass out. Many students will have multiple offers as students of ECE enjoy the double benefit of placement opportunities in electronics and telecom companies as well as computer and IT industry.
