The Indian Institute of Delhi has broken their 10-year-old record of job placements. This year, it was observed that the number of placement offers increased by 15%, which is the highest in comparison to the last 10 years records.
“With over 1,000 job offers logged in (including pre-placement offers), the campus has witnessed hiring numbers this year that have crossed previous 10-year benchmarks… Many more companies are scheduled to visit in the remaining part of Phase II (of placement season), which is on till May,” IIT-D said in a statement.
It was reported that over 900 students received “job offers of their choice”, it added.
It was found that the majority of placements were received for students pursuing core engineering such as electrical, civil, mechanical, chemical, etc.
The Placement Cell revealed that over 43 students received offers that provided opportunities for students in Europe, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and the US, but only 33 were preferring to bag these opportunities. It was found that over 160 pre-placement offers were received by students but only 90 were accepted.
“A few students opted for the deferred placement option, which is available to students interested in pursuing their start-up dreams,” the institute said.
