The college has an active placement cell and it helps students to get job. Many IT Companies are coming such as Infosys, Virtusa, Zoho etc. Apart from these, there are many off-campus companies also. Core Companies have fewer takers only.internship are also encouraged and many do their projects in the company. Packages offered are normally between 3 to 4 lakhs. The college has some alumni and some help the junior motivating how to attend placement.
Very little scope for internships. Getting permission from the college for taking up that internship is a Herculean task, ignoring the fact that a maximum of 5 people per class are allowed for internships. The companies which come for placements are progressively degrading. Half the students who got placed in the companies haven't received their offer letters (including myself). They promise one hundred placements but on average 30 to 35 percentage of the entire class get placed. For the first time in several years, an alumni meet happened recently. My entire 4 years of engineering had no alumni influence whatsoever.
I am still pursuing my degree so I don't have much idea about the placements.
