The institute has introduced a provision of six months internship for the students, which has provided internship to the students for the whole semester, hence the Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) for the undergraduate students have also increased a lot. The steady growth in PPOs is the result of the excellent performance of the students in the internships.
Commenting on the significant increase in PPOs this year, Dr. Tushar Jain, Advisor, Career & Placement Cell, IIT Mandi said, “As a result of strong internship arrangement, there has been a good increase in the PPOs received by our students. The drive is still on and hence the number is expected to increase further in the coming months. So far, 23 percent more PPOs have been received as compared to last year.
Dr. Tushar Jain said, “Looking at the trend of PPOs, we are confident that the 2022-23 placement drive will be very successful. Students of new UG programs i.e. Data Science, Engineering Physics and Bioengineering started in 2019 will also participate in the recruitment drive this year. Students of these branches have also secured PPOs.
Companies offering the maximum number of PPOs include Microsoft (11), Samsung Research Institute, Bangalore (10), Amazon (7), Arista Networks (6), Accenture (4) and Dauber (3).
