PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK
  • The Placement Cell was established in order to assist the students of the Institute in getting suitable employment. The placement activities were initiated in the middle of 1998 with a view to helping our students obtain gainful employment. A large number of companies/ organizations from both the public and private sector, including IT multinational firms, conducted campus interviews. The placement percentage of the Institute from the very inception has been higher than ninety percent with many of our past students being placed in reputed national and multi-national organizations.
  • Apart from the 100% placements, which is a very common thing at the IIT’s, the companies that recruit students are class apart. From Facebook, Microsoft, Google to the banking sector which includes, AXIS, YES Bank, Nomura and hundred such companies visit the Indian Institute of Technology at Guwahati during the placement season. Well, salary is something would obviously look for. The average pay package would be anything around 7-8 lakhs per annum while the highest can go up to 30-50 lakhs depending upon your performance and the company status. International offers are less but they do reach up to a crore at times. Luring, right!
