This year’s placement season started on a positive note with the 48 Pre-Placement Offers (PPO), as opposed to 37 PPOs in the previous academic year. The phase-II of placements will be held in January 2021.

The same trend continued in international offers this year too when compared to last year. For the current placement year 2020-21, the institute received 30 international offers from 8 companies from Japan and Taiwan. More international offers are expected during the phase-II. For the placement year 2019-20, IIT-H students got 38 international offers from 15 companies across 3 countries (Japan, USA and Taiwan).

Over 500 students had registered for placements across departments this year. For phase-I placements, a total of 116 companies had registered, down from 150 companies in phase I of 2019-20. A total of 244 companies had registered for the entire last year which included 15 start-ups.

A total of 206 students have already been placed at the end of phase-I placements for 2020-21 academic year. This compares favourably with the overall students placed in the entire previous academic year (2019-20), which was 295 students (including 37 PPOs). In the current placement year 2020-21, for circuit branches, the premier institute has crossed more than 75 per cent of placement  during phase-I. Most of the offers so far are from the IT/ITES sector with few in the core sector as well.

Speaking about phase-I of campus placements, Dr Pradeep Yemula, Faculty In-Charge (Placements), IIT-H said: “We anticipated a slowdown due to the pandemic and accordingly strengthened our student teams to adapt to the changing scenario. We are glad to see that the placement season at IIT-H has started on a positive note.”
