Training and Placement Details
The Placement Cell at IITH was established in the year 2010 with the prime objective of providing career opportunities to the students. The first graduating batch (M.Tech 2009-2011) has actively participated in this year’s campus placements.
Though ,a small group of graduating Mtechs (25 registered students), the placement season has seen an overwhelming response from the industry with 30 companies registering for placements. Internships for B.Tech?s also witnessed the same euphoria.
The Placement process at IIT Hyderabad usually starts in the month of August by sending out a formal E- mail to the company/organization with relevant information and Employer Registration Form (ERF)*. The company/organization in turn will return the filled ERF to Placement Office, IIT Hyderabad, along with softcopy of their Pre Placement Interaction (PPI) material which speaks about the organisation, their philosophy and their expectations. The same is studied and the requirements & profile of the company are announced to the students.
Interested students are asked to submit resumes within a timeline and the resumes (softcopy or hardcopy as required), are then sent to the company(on request).
Companies may invite CVs of interested students and shortlist students on the basis of their profiles ten days prior to their campus visit. The companies are required to shortlist candidates from the pool of applicants and send the same to the Placement Office at the earliest (at least three days in advance of the visit to the campus). The company can request a visit to the campus for a Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) before the Campus Placements or can combine it with the final recruitment. A mutually convenient date and time for Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) & selection process is fixed.
Recruiters then hold interviews on campus and make offers. They can also conduct off campus interviews with students in special cases. The company is required to present the final list of offers on the same day. The Placement Office would handover the company Offer Letters to the students and the student offer acceptances would be forwarded to the company.
