SVNIT Campus Placement: 70% Students Get Job Offers

Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) has already placed over 70% of eligible engineering graduates in campus placement, despite the uncertainties arising out of the two-month-long lockdown.

Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology has already placed 438 students out of the 626 eligible B.Tech students and is hoping that nearly 60 more students will get recruited in the next days.

During the lockdown period, the students appeared in the online interviews and were recruited. The institute is now targeting to match last year's percentage of campus recruitment.

 "Few companies are contracting the institute for recruitment even now and the placement process will continue. Companies who have already recruited students are requesting us to complete the exams so that the students can join at the earliest,"s said Dr. R A Christian, in-charge, training and placement cell, SVNIT.

"In 2019, 80% of students were recruited in campus placement and this year too we will match those numbers. There is the effect of global pandemic and lockdown on overall economy but the placements are showing positive signs," Christian added.

Despite adversities, the institute will conduct online exams for final year students of B.Tech from Monday and will declare results before July 4. 

"We are holding the online exams from Monday so that the final year students can be issued results soon. Engineers will always be in demand but we are nurturing students to deal with tough situations," said SR Gandhi, director, SVNIT.

The institute’s Training & Placement cell is looking forward to training students for recruitment from the first year. The new training modules are being introduced, considering the difficult employment conditions during the next few months.
