As good as any other IIT (old ones)

When it comes to placements, IIT Roorkee performs fairly well. There used to a small problem earlier as some companies found it difficult to travel to Roorkee because of poor connectivity through road. But now it has changed and you get all the entire spectrum of recruiters jumping at the opportunity to hire the geeks (CG=9+) on Day 0 and Day 1. Just like flash sales of Mi Phones on flipkart, all the B.Tech CS people are all sold out by the end of one week People with CGPA (7-9) across all branches end up with fairly decent packages in their hands by the end of the month. The remaining lot especially the 5 pointers wait for miracles to happen and they do happen every now and then during the season. There are some companies who tend to overlook the CGPA and see some talent in people which they think is useful for them. I remember one example where a 5 pointer guys was selected as he told the interviewer that he has memorised all the phone numbers in his contact list.
