SRM University Chennai has set a new placement record on Day One with top four IT companies offering jobs to 6064 students.
The highest number of offers were from Wipro: 1641, followed by TCS: 1611, Cognizant: 1506 and Infosys: 1306. This is the first time in India that four major IT companies have offered 6064 jobs, hiring more than 1,300 students each from a single institution.
The placement season for the current year 2015-16 started on a brisk note in May 2015 with more than 50 top notch core companies recruiting 621 students. Some of the prominent recruiters included Goldman Sachs, Accenture, SAP, Philips, Amazon, GE, Dell, MuSigma, Think @ Learn, Amadeus, Flipkart, Fidelity, ThoughtWorks and HUL etc. to name a few.
“Apart from constantly reviewing the syllabus to meet the demands of the market forces, the University keeps in mind the talent and skill requirements of the industry. Placement is one part of University life. Grooming to work in a multinational company and being better citizens is the other part”, said Dr. Paarivendhar, the Founder Chancellor.
“We owe a great sense of gratitude to the many companies that have reposed their trust in the quality of our students. Universities have to satisfy the needs of a business. We have to re-engineer the curriculum in a way that meets the demands of the industry. SRM University wants to climb to higher echelons and curriculum will be up to the mark”, said Dr Prabir Bagchi, Vice Chancellor of the University.
On the part of the recruiters they felt quite satisfied while being in the campus and getting their requirement. “Wipro is offering the highest number of job in a single institution. SRM students are among the best in the country. It is absolutely a great pleasure to be here” said V.Vishwanathan, National Head of Engineering Campus Recruitment for Wipro.
