While giving the information, a member of the IIT Bombay placement team said that the PG students are doing well compared to their counterparts of undergraduate students. This is because of the fact that there are less number of start-ups participating this year who mostly recruit B.Tech students. Not only that, the number of core companies participating is also higher this time.

This trend is not only in IIT Bombay, even other campuses also seem to have the same trend. N P Padhy, placement head of IIT Roorkee said that several core companies have visited their campus and they preferred postgraduate students compared to the students of undergraduate course. Already, a total of 180 postgraduate students have been placed by these companies.
