Ensuring a good job for the students

WELL PLACED

Ambitious: The City Engineering College had a good placement session.

The college believes that engineering courses should result in meaningful employment for the students. So it has taken many initiatives to ensure that its students are employed in a good job.

For the last four years, the college has been doing a great job of placing its eligible students. Even the students of the current batch have been placed through various campus drives.

Several leading industries including Infosys, Accenture, Tech Mahindra, L& T Infotech, Cap Gemini, Cisco, Honey Well, Hewlett Packard and Tata Elxsi have hired a number of students.

“Statistics of the last three years reveal that there has been one campus drive every ten days. To place our students before the end of every academic year, we vigorously plan our training and placement programmes. And we have also started in-house training programmes which include soft skills, quantitative, verbal, non verbal, communication and presentation skills. Our students also undertook assessment tests by professional skill assessment bodies like Merittrack and Aspiring Minds who forwarded the assessed data to all the leading industries in the country,” says A K Sinha, Placement Director of City Engineering College.

Dixit G, an electronics and communications branch student, has been placed in Infosys and says his lecturers and seniors helped him a lot for the preparation.

“Our training began in the second year itself. Our placement director shares a good rapport with many companies and has roped in nearly 50 companies for the campus placement drive. Students of electronics and communication had formed a club called ‘CEC Forum’ to assist students with aptitude. It provided us with free daily SMS service having questions on aptitude. Even the in-house training was of immense help to sail through the selection process,” says Dixit.

Preethi N Rao from the computer science department was hired by L&T Infotech in a pooled campus recruitment process held for three colleges – City Engineering College, KSIT and Atria Institute of Technology — with six other students from her college.

 “The interview consisted of four rounds. The technical round was a bit challenging. Though the HR round was like a normal conversation between people, it was tough to maintain the confidence level. Thanks to the guidance of our placement director, I did well in all the rounds and got the offer letter,” says Preethi.
