The IIT Delhi this year broke its last 10 years record for the number of placements, with its students grabbing over 900 offers from various national and international employers so far. The number crosses 1,000 if one includes the pre-placement offers.
According to the statement given by IIT Delhi, the number of companies coming for campus placement also saw an increase of 15 per cent over the last year. The students from core subjects like electrical, chemical, civil and mechanical engineering formed the group bagging the highest number (32 per cent) of offers, followed by Information Technology students, who got 20 per cent of total offers. The rest of the offers were from the fields of analytics, management, finance, consulting, research and teaching, and other motley ones.
The institute refused to divulge the details of the package on the grounds that doing so may have the effect of “devaluing national placements over international placements as well as core jobs over finance and consulting jobs”.
The placement season for the batch graduating in 2019 at IIT Delhi commenced in August 2018 and it will conclude on May 31.
