KIIT University's strong brand continues to charm India's top recruiters with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) picking up a whopping 708 students in the campus placement on 18th September 2011. The selected students, who would be passing out in 2012, belong to B.Tech, M.Tech and MCA streams of the University. Job offer to so many students by a single company in campus placement on a single day is a record in Eastern India as well as another record in entire country in terms of percent.
Encouragingly, three out of four tribal students from Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) who participated in the selection process also got job in the IT major.
Recruiters from the Indian IT behemoth, who conducted the campus placement, were overwhelmed with the students' profile. KIIT students fared extremely well with 708 out of 915 students who went through the selection process making it to the final list.
Over the years, KIIT University has emerged as the favorite recruiting ground for TCS. Last year, the company had picked up 658 students in the campus placement from KIIT. It has been possible due to high employability of KIIT students due to their quality.
Like previous years, KIIT graduates continue to be in high demand both in IT and core companies. Besides TCS, companies including Shapoorji Pallonji, TATA Steel, Atkins, SAP and Deloittes also selected more than 100 KIIT students, whereas campus placement by companies like Wipro, Siemens, Capgemini, Aricent, Punjlloyd and Accenture are scheduled in the end of the month. It is just the start of placement season at KIIT and most of the students of 2012 passing out batch are placed. At the end of the placement season, each student is likely to have two to four job offers. Dr. A. Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS expressed his happiness at the selection of so many students (708) by TCS.
