IIT Delhi Placement Phase 1

There has been a rise in students hired for Electrical engineering, Civil engineering, Mechanical engineering, Chemical engineering, etc. Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning, Stochastic Modelling and Predictive Analysis appeared to be the upcoming sectors as industry gears up for 4.0 with an exponential hike in organisations looking for talent with this skill-set.

Observing this trend, Prof. S. Dharmaraja, Head of T&P, said, “As we expected, offers from core companies increased. Core companies including those registering under the domain of Information Technology and Others yielded over 70% offers.”

Adding to it, Anishya Madan, Industry Liaison Officer, (T&P), said, “The efforts of the entire placement team of staff and volunteers coupled with the positive reaction from industry this year has translated into these hiring numbers. We hope this trend continues till the end of the season.”

The Phase II of campus placement will commence in January and will go on till the end of May 2019. Over 150 companies are expected to visit the campus in the next phase.

In the first phase of placement season which commenced in August 2018  more than 350 companies registered on the Training & Placement portal to participate in campus placements, making offers for 550 different profiles. This showed an increase of about 20% in the number of companies visiting the campus as compared to the previous year.

IIT Delhi slotted companies on numerous parameters including the job profile offered, growth prospects in the company and sector, reputation/ brand of the company on campus, preferences of the students, past relationship/ record with IITs including IIT Delhi etc.

To prepare students participating in the placement, the institute organised various workshops on resume making, communication skills, presentation and interviewing skills, problem-solving, case workshops and also conducted multiple mock placement tests.

Along with this, the institute also arranged for a Career Conclave with the theme of "Prism of Possibilities: Visualise, Improvise, Realise" with a view to help students make more informed career choices. The conclave had senior officials from companies across various sectors to help students get a better understanding of career opportunities available. During the conclave, there were panel discussions followed by interactive sessions with the speakers. IIT Delhi also conducted Industry Day to enhance research-based connections with industry.
