IIT-M students’ strong show in pre-placements

The students of IIT Madras, have registered a strong show in pre-placement offers (PPO) this year, despite the impact of Covid-19 pandemic.

An IIT-M release here said, ‘As many as 182 offers were made to students this academic year, as against 170 offers during 2019-20’.

A major factor behind this performance, is the strong internship programme of the institute. The Internship Drive was conducted completely online this year, for the first time in the history of the Institute, to overcome the logistical restrictions due to the pandemic, the release said.

CS Shankar Ram, Advisor (Training and Placement), said, “The sustained increase in the number of Pre-Placement Offers this year is a clear reflection of the academic quality of IIT Madras and its students. I am optimistic that we would be able to carry forward this momentum and our students would obtain the best possible job offers in Phase-1 placements”.

The phase one of campus placements is scheduled to begin today.
