Several institutions record very good placements

BMS College too records good percentage


BANGALORE: It is recruitment time for the final semester students in most of the engineering colleges and given the recovery of the economy, several of the leading technical institutions in the State have recorded very good placements for their students. The autonomous colleges have scored over the rest.

PES Institute of Technology (PESIT) and PES School of Engineering (PESSE) are confident of a 100 per cent placement for the class of 2011 having achieved an 85-per cent placement record, and many more companies are yet to visit the campus.

The two institutions have recorded an impressive 1,007 placements with PESIT placing 782 out of an eligible student base of 927 and PESSE placing 224 out of an eligible student base of 266. However, the number of placements obtained by the students of the two colleges stands at 1,223 with many a student obtaining multiple offers.

The pay packet for these freshers ranges from Rs. 3.13 lakh to Rs. 9.30 lakh a year and the average salary is Rs. 4.50 lakh a year. TCS has been the largest recruiter in the Tier III category with 450 students (PESIT — 334, PESSE — 116) getting placed. This is followed by HCL with 135 students, Wipro 121 students, IBM 75 students.

M.R. Doreswamy, Founder-Chairman of the PES Institutions and MLC, told The Hindu that DE Shaw has offered the highest pay of Rs. 9.3 lakh to a final year student. With more companies in the pipeline and only a few students to be placed, the institution looks forward to a 100 per cent placement accomplishment this year.

Prof. Doreswamy congratulated the students who have got placements and thanked the staff members for taking interest in preparing them for a career.

Good, says MSRIT

Placement officer of M.S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology Vijay Dev said that even at the MSRIT placements have been good. Of its final year batch of 1,250 students, nearly 1,100 registered for placements, and the remaining opted either to go on their own or pursue higher studies.

Of these, nearly all of them have received offer letters from at least one company. “We started a little late and introduced a policy where we invite all big companies on the same day. Today, we are almost close to 100 per cent placements,” he said.

He said that the placement trends have improved, and nearly 40 per cent of the batch has opted for core engineering companies. 

Several other top colleges have also record similar trends.

The tier-II colleges are yet to complete their placements. So far, the Government-managed BMS College of Engineering has placed 705 of the 760 students who appeared for placements.

Placement officer of the college Jagadeesh confirmed that placements have been good at BMS Institute of Technology too.
