Doing an Internship is compulsory in the curriculum of the institution. Many companies hire interns through campus interviews during the beginning of V semester and the internships should be attended after completion of VI Semester. Apart from that many students join internships after their IV semester. I have attended 2 internships, one at BEML Ltd, Bangalore the other being GETMYUNI.
The key companies that hire from the Internships and Placements are ExxonMobil, Mercedes Benz, Cisco, Infosys, Microsoft, Tata, Bajaj, Samsung R&D, Qualcomm. Placements are not only done in Engineering but also in other fields.
Average Salary figures vary among Courses. The highest in 2018 placements is 42 LPA offered by Microsoft. The highest for a Student from Mechanical Engineering branch is 27 LPA offered by Myntra. The placement percentage during the 2018 placements is 95% among the eligible candidates. Many students prefer doing their higher studies as well.
An Alumni Association functions in the college campus. There are Alumni funded Clubs and Teams in the college. The Alumni association sponsors some events at college as well.
Internship: Every year some well-established companies come for internship recruitment. Similar to placements they conduct Apti test and interviews. Based on the performance they will hire for the summer internship. During your internship, if you perform well you'll be given Pre placement offer. Placements: every year NITK has good placement records. In our year Highest package given was INR 30 lakhs per annum. Average of 6-8 lakhs. Alumni: Yes, NITK has good alumni network. Each year alumnus will conduct some educational programs.
I interned at ChangePay, which is a NITK based startup and focuses on online money payment with innovative solutions, it was an unpaid internship. Key companies are Samsung, TI, Qualcomm etc come for the placements. Also, tech companies like Amazon come to hire for management roles. The average salary is around INR 8 to 10 lakhs per annum and The highest salary can go to INR 30 lakhs per annum. Almost everyone gets placed except students who pursue higher studies. Alumni network is amazing, we have a special place for that and in any event or a starting, the alumni community invests some amount.
Lots of companies come for internships and placement. Recently Mercedes-Benz had come for placement drive for our campus and 9 students got selected for the same. Global India, Kaarvi, Jaro education are few of the companies which came into the campus for placements.
Internship opportunities are at the same time available for every student in all the fields. the annual package strats with 3 lakh.
The on-campus placements for MBA graduates in NIT-K are mostly student driven. Since NIT-K is a technical institute and the School of Management is still gaining popularity, a number of companies that visit the campus for recruitment are way ahead for BTech and MTech graduates as compared to MBA. The average salary package offered to an MBA graduate ranges from 6 LPA to 12 LPA.
Internship opportunities are a regular commonplace and one Summer Internship is mandatory for every student as part of the curriculum. I have done internships at Clickdoor.in, Edvizo and GetmyUni the stipend for which ranged from 10000-15000 rupees.
NIT-K has an alumni network. The alumni association keeps reminding the current inmates about their gratitude by conducting various events (marathons, sports events, social welfare activities, entrepreneurship support etc.) on a frequent basis.
