PUNE: Training and placement officers say this year’s placement season, which is half-way through, has been the best they have seen in the recent past.

Mudit Sachdeva, training and placement officer at the Indian Institute of Information Technology, Pune, said within two months 100% of the eligible students got jobs.

Placements in core mechanical and civil engineering branches are yet to pick up, but placement officers hope the new semester will bring with it job offers. Anand

, principal and dean, Bharati Vidyapeeth College of Engineering said the institute is likely to record 100% placements. “This year, 92 companies visited in the first three months while placements stand at 82%, which is close to the last year’s final placements. Of 650 students, 533 have been placed. Last year, the final placement was 86%; we may reach 100% this year,” said Bhalerao.


Most of the demand is from the IT sector, said Bhalerao, adding that many students also turned their internships into placement offers.

training and placement officer at the Army Institute of Technology, said final placements last year stood at 91%, but have already crossed 93% this year, with more time to go.


“Not just IT products, but fintech, banks, consultancy, healthcare etc are also offering good packages. Lateral attrition in IT fields may be another reason for greater hiring of freshers,” said Khaladkar.


Karthick Subramanian, head, central training and placement office, Vishwakarma Institutes, said the highest package has been Rs33 lakh so far. “IT companies are hiring in bulk. We have been training students in mechanical and other branches in Java and other IT-related courses due to which they were able to appear jobs in the IT services sector,” said Subramanian.


“We anticipated that there will be more demand for mechanical students well-versed in programming languages,” said Subramaniam.


Shitalkumar Rawandale, training and placement officer, Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering, said1,450 of 1,580 final year students have got offers so far.

“There has been a 20% increase in the number of students placed compared to last year,” said Rawandale. Satish Narkhede, training and placement officer at Pune Institute of Computer Technology (PICT) said 85% students were placed in the first semester, which is nearly equal to the entire placements season last year. “Earlier, computer and IT branches would get priority, but this time electronics and telecommunication students got jobs along side,” said Narkhede.

Walchand College of Engineering

, said mechanical engineering students secured good jobs in core companies.


“Even the number of students who got salary offers above Rs10-15 lakh has increased,” said Dhaygu
