Explaining the factors behind the increase in PPOs this year, Tushar Jain, advisor, career and placement cell, IIT Mandi, said, “The provision of strong internships has led to a significant increase in the PPOs for students. Since the drive is still ongoing, these numbers are expected to rise in the coming months. At this point, there is a 23% increase in the PPOs received so far compared to the previous year.”
“While seeing the PPO trend, we hope for a successful 2022-23 placement drive. The students from the newly-opened UG programs in 2019, namely data science, engineering physics, and bioengineering, will participate in the recruitment drive this year. Students from these branches have also secured PPOs,” he added.
