The different constituents of the city-based KIIT University have achieved record placements this year despite the prevailing economic recession which had dampened the job market scenario in the country.
The campus placements organised at the different constituents of the KIIT University this year including School of Technology, School of Rural Management School of Rural Management School of Computer Application and School of Biotechnology were beyond expectations, said a KIIT release.
The School of Technology has recorded 92 per cent placement, with 345 students bagging offer letters from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) alone. The remaining eight per cent students of this school opted out of the campus placement process as they chose higher studies.
The highest package of Rs. 6.5 lakh per annum was offered by Tata Steel, while the average salary was Rs. 4.2 lakh per annum. Even the School of Computer Applications recorded 80 per cent placement, despite the fact that the IT sector was one of the worst hit by the ongoing global economic meltdown.
The School of Management also scripted a 100 per cent record with 40 companies, including HDFC Bank, TCS, HCL, Axis Bank, SIDBI and Nestle participating in the on-campus placement exercise. The average pay offered was Rs 4.5 lakh per annum.
The School of Biotechnology and the School of Rural Management also attracted overwhelming response in this year’s placements. 16 reputed companies including Intas Biopharmaceuticals, ILS, Excel Life Sciences, Cryo-Save and Mahyco visited the campus of the School of Biotechnology. 20 companies visited the School of Rural Management.
