IIT-KGP announced that as of August 11, the institute has received 118 pre-placement offers from several top companies.
The companies include Microsoft and Wipro and they have offered to hire 14 candidates and Qualcomm has made 13 offers as of now.
“This is a great start for the placement season. PPOs generally constitute about 15 per cent of the total number of placements and many more offers are in the pipeline as the semester progresses,” said IITKGP Career Development Centre professor in- charge Debasis Deb.
Students have also received offers from companies like Samsung, Texas instruments, ITC and Unilever. Students have been offered jobs from various domains such as finance, software, analytics and consultancy sectors.
Students from various engineering departments such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, computer science engineering, electronics and electrical communications engineering, humanities and social sciences (Economics) have received pre placement offers from these companies.
“We are approaching several new companies along with those who have visited us earlier and many have responded already. We are expecting 250 companies to visit us for placement in December,” Deb said
