Job opportunities for mechanical engineers at that time was less. only 1 got into campus selection. But for IT and electronics around 15 people got campus interviews and selection. But currently, the value of CUSAT is better comparing with 1998-2002 time.
no, college never provides a stipend for General category. but for SC/ST students I think they provide. because CUSAT is a self-financing institution. So don't know much about as I fall on GC.
As mentioned earlier the marine transportation is on its worst time and as of there are lots of marine engg colleges in india which offers the same ,so in this scenario offering food placement statistics is a challenging part which quite impossible right now , the opportunity window of a marine engineer is getting narrower day by day. You join the vessel as a junior engineer so u start with the least possible salary which varies from vessel to vessel so it ranges from 15k to 60k . And Right after an year it can vary from 90k to 250k.
Yes , they do provide internship to the interested candidates and have an active placement cell , but from the past few years the marine transport business is on a decline and is on verge of struggle , so in this scenario you must maintain a sufficient GPA to attend the interview . The companies visited were L&T , MSC, K-LINE,MSL,ISC,ANGLOEASTERN SHIPPING COMPANIY ETC.
Placement in our college is really high for all the other branches except mechanical because the job fr mechanics really low all over Indian.
In terms of placements CUSAT can be termed as very poor place comparing with other government colleges and institutions. Quality of students specially in our batch was bright but as mentioned earlier due to inter department politics of college and of kerala people in general as well as centralisation of power and vested interests it couldn't have been a successful affair apart from few mid level IT companies visiting the campus as per usual trend.
No college faculty and specially the programme we underwent was not supportive of internship. As we approached our faculties for internship training and development, There was no support and encouragement from them.
There are a lots of companies came to CUSAT for placement . Some of them are TCS , WIPRO, IBM, ARICENT, VERIZON , ORACLE, AMCAT, STANDARD CHARTER, COGNIZANT and many more. Range of packaged varied from 3 to 8-9. I got placement into Aricent technologies Pvt. Ltd.
No. There were no internship facility for students. Although the college provided very good placement records.
Let me tell you that your placement at CUSAT totally depends upon your performance in academics and sports too if you are not good enough don't hope for placement its not like any private University which will place you in some or the other company so,be prepared for tough competition. If percentage wise we call it's 70% placement.
Yes,it provides internship but as I am in second year I am not acquainted with it properly but last year few of my seniors went to HINDUSTAN SHIPPING LIMITED (VISHKH) for internship and their had a wonderful experience over there other places for internship are Cochin Shipyard.
Good chance for IT/CS but core branches less chances but core branches can also attempt IT based placement if selected they will give training . Core company also came for selection, if selected for placement they get good package, company have some criteria for selection.
No, its govt college and at that time they not provide any internal ship, we have project and seminar.
Theres was some campus selection but not for my field mechanical. So i did no opt it i got the job after the college. More companies are from IT field. Mechanical less companies.
I done my internship in HAL Hindustan Aeronautical limited and i done my project also there. It was a good experience and we have so much to study. I meet with India's most modern technologies and MIG engines there maintenance and making and i have good workshop experience.
Lot of companies were on placement list including from software to marketing firms and some core companies. They offered a very good package and and had a promising feature.
It was kind of new to everyone bt ultimately proved to Be beneficial for everybody. It confronted us with outside world realities. They made us realistic.
Placements were lined up with top It companies and few of core companies. Core Companies included Flextronics, Delphi Digital, Motorola etc. Top IT Companies like TCS, Infy, Wipro etc. were always recruiting in mass. We were allowed one core and one IT Company for selection.
There was choice to go for college internship with professors, or gain company experience. There was no stipend whatever.
