IIT Kharagpur students – The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur launched its 2023 placement drive on Sunday, with students receiving over 700 placement offers, including Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs), on the first day.

Over 19 of these offers were international placements, with several cases where students received employment offers exceeding Rs 1 crore CTC (cost to company).

“More than 61 companies offered various roles to our students, primarily in the profile of software, analytics, finance-banking, consulting, and core engineering,” the statement said on Saturday. “Pre-placement offers from Apple, Arthur D Little, Da Vinci, Capital One, DE Shaw, EXL Services, Glean, Google, Graviton, Microsoft, Mckinsey, Quantbox, Databricks, Square point, TSM, Palo Alto, and many more.”

Companies are conducting interviews in a hybrid style, according to an IIT Kharagpur spokesperson, with a significant proportion also engaging in physical presence.

”Reaching out to many new companies with proper strategy has played a very important role in defeating the market’s lean period and upholding the institute’s legacy in this placement process,” said Professor Rajib Maity, chairperson of Career Development.

The Career Development Centre launches its inaugural “Academia Industry Conclave (AIC) 2023” as part of its innovative initiatives. The primary goal of this event is to foster collaboration and effectively bridge the gap between academia and industry.

“The primary concept is to offer a platform for departments, centres, and schools to highlight their strengths and accomplishments to prospective industry partners and recruiters,” Maity went on to say.

”Most of the prominent companies have already visited the campus for internship in August 2023 and have registered their presence for this placement season,” said IIT Kharagpur Director Professor V K Tewari.
