The first day of placement in SRM Institute of Science and Technology started with a good note, where 4,749 graduation students (Batch of 2020) were offered jobs by top four major IT companies. Last year, 3020 offers were given to 2019 pass outs.

TCS (Ninja) has made 1437 offers, Infosys 1315, CTS 1175 and Wipro 822. Apart from this, TCS has made 183 offers under 'Digital Track' (7 lakhs per annum), informed Sriram Padmanabhan, Director, Career Centre at SRMIST. For all the day-one companies, the highest number of offers at an All India level have been made in the SRMIST campus.

This year, the highest offer made on the campus was 41.6 lakhs per annum by Microsoft. More than 120 companies have visited the campus this year since the commencement of the placement season on July 22, and have made close to 6000 offers till date.

Top recruiters this year include Amazon (18 offers of 32 lakhs per annum), Barclays (25 offers of 10 lakhs per annum) and startup Udaan (4 offers of 30 lakhs per annum). Besides, organisations like Veritas and Pay Pal have made internship offers whereby selected students would work in the companies during the final semester with a good chance of bagging offers.

The centralised placement process organised at Kattankulathur campus, brings students from SRM campuses including Modinagar, Ramapuram and Vadapalani, said Sriram Padmanabhan. He said top companies are drawn to SRM IST due to the cosmopolitan composition of the students. The beneficiary students are removed from the placement list to make way for other students aspiring for jobs.
