  • As it has recently turned into a central institution, it currently does not have an effective training and placement coordination system in place.
  • The internships and VTs are mostly arranged by students personally without any assist from institute currently, though few companies visit to offer internships like CESC,PWC,TATA STEEL,DDT( POLARIS NETWORKS) etc .
  • Some of the faculty members, though, can help by giving recommendations in companies or academic institutions.
  • The placement scenario has improved a lot in past 3-4 years.
  • Though core companies of every discipline do not visit the campus, but analytics based and IT based companies do come and take students from IIEST.
  • Talking especially about the circuit branches (CSE,IT,ETC,EE), many companies visit the campus. We have recruiters like PWC, ZS Associates, Mu Sigma, NRI fintech, Directi, Amazon, Tata Metaliks, Maruti Suzuki, CESC, Tata Steel and few other reputed names visit our campus every year. The number is increasing every year and so the opportunities.
  • The average salary figure is around Rs 4.5-5.5 lakhs per annum.
  • The mass recruiters' package is around Rs 3.2 lakhs per annum. Core, non-CS/IT companies pay around RS 5.5-7.5 lakhs per annum.
  • The highest salary figure depends on the company that visits, though normally it is around Rs 26-30 lakhs per annum which is offered by Directi or Amazon.
  • Being one the oldest colleges of India, it boasts of having its alumni in many giant companies spread all across the globe. It sometimes helps in inviting a company to a campus for job/internship.
