Placement Cell helps the students to opt their career choice. It facilitates the opportunity to decide on their future from the Campus itself and assists in finding placements and short-term assignments. The Cell keeps track of the Industrial requirements and brings in reputed companies for on campus recruitment. The true measure of effectiveness of any employability enhancement program lies in the acceptance of the students by the industry. Industry collaboration has an unmatched track record in helping the students find their careers. Over the years, the cell has maintained symbiotic, vibrant and purposeful relationship with industries across the country and as a result, has built up an impressive placement record both in terms of percentage of registered students placed, as well as the number of companies visiting the campus. It is very unfortunate to quote that, some of students were discarded by some industries only due to the lack of communication skills even though they scored high in the technical competencies. Some of students could not attend the interview because of pending supplementary papers, even though they have completed sixth semester exams.
