The IIT Guwahati placement season is on and the institute recorded a 21% rise in pre-placement offers this academic year. The highest package recorded this year is of Rs 1.20 crore – it is the highest pre-placement offer till date for IIT Guwahati.
This year, 218 Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) have already been received against the 179 offers received in the 2021-22 academic year. Many more are expected as the pre-placements will continue till Phase 1 of campus placements begin on December 1.
The major reason behind the sharp rise in PPOs is the strong internship programme and the pre-placement talks arranged by the Centre for Career Development of IIT Guwahati for the students.
Excellent student performance alongside great mentorship during these sessions are major contributors as well.
“We collaborated with technical clubs to help students reach the relevant study/ course material for specific profiles resulting in an increase in the PPOs this year,” said Dr. Abhishek Kumar, Head, Centre for Career Development, IIT Guwahati.
