Placement & Job opportunities were excellent at CEPT in M.Tech (Construction & Project management). Our external coordinator Prof. S.Sapre sir was having very strong relations with huge numbers of industries. Along with support of Dean & HOD, he invited plenty of companies for placement along with facilities to conduct exams, personal interviews. Companies like ESSAR, JLL, OBEROI, KPMG, SHAPOORJI, KINGHTFRANK was regular at every year for campus recruitment. We all students were absorbed by the companies who came for interviews & it was 100% placement of M.Tech (Construction & Project Management) student with very lucrative CTC packages around 6-8 lacs per annum.
No, internship was not provided to us in M.Tech (Construction & Project Management). but during our batch we proposed to have internship in companies near Ahmadabad with least or no stipend. But the permission was not obtained from management as their prime concern was that students should focus whole day-time in versatile study.
Placements in my college was almost 100%. Companies like Shapoorji pallonji, L&T, EnY, KPMG, Deloitte, PwC, Tata Consulting Engineering Services, DLF, HCC (Hindustan Construction Company), Gannon Dunkerly (GDCL), Reliance Realty, Reliance Infra, Tata Infra. Ltd., IL&FS, HDFC, Adani PMC, Afcons, CBRE, Cushman, DLF etc appeared. Companies offered salary packages in the range of 4-6 lacs per annum.
College internship experience was a great learning. I was involved at a site as a site execution engineer. No stipend was offered as per the college policies and regulations. Huge construction/ infrastructure groups came for internship.
Just like internship, placement is also not that good. Few companies are aware about the course and college and they hire from here but even for a batch of 25 students, more than 40% were unplaced and found a job by themself. Package offered was good for those who got placed. Averaging 5 lac p.a.
The centralized placement cell is still under development. There's not much help and guidance from the department's faculty. Students have to find by themself for internship and stipend depends on the company and so mostly didn't get any stipend.
