IIT Madras Records Strong Pre-Placement Offers for Students

182 offers have been made till 28th November 2020, compared with 170 offers during the entire preceding academic year of 2019-20; The Phase I of Campus Placements is set to begin tomorrow (1st Dec 2020)

Indian Institute of Technology Madras students have registered a strong show in Pre-Placement this year as well with the offers increasing yet again during 2020-21 compared with the preceding Academic Year, despite the impact of COVID-19 pandemic.

As many as 182 offers were made to IIT Madras students this academic year (as on 28th November 2020) as against 170 offers during the entire 2019-20 Academic year. The Phase I of Campus Placements is scheduled to commence on 1st December 2020.

A major factor behind this performance in PPOs 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 internships result in students getting to intern in companies that are large recruiters. The internships are facilitated through an Institute-coordinated process. The constant increase in PPOs is the result of excellent performance of students during the internships.
