SRM University Chancellor Paarivendhar said that the placement season for the current year 2015-16 started on a brisk note in May 2015, with more than 50 top-notch core companies recruiting 621 students on campus. 

Some of the prominent recruiters included Goldman Sachs, Accenture, SAP, Philips, Amazon, GE, Dell, MuSigma, Think @ Learn, Amadeus, Flipkart, Fidelity, ThoughtWorks and HUL.
