IIT-B place­ments: PSUs make a cam­pus come­back

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - FRONT PAGE - Shreya Bhandary shreya.bhandary@hin­dus­tan­times.com

The place­ment sea­son at the In­dian In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy-Bom­bay is less than a month away and while hun­dreds of com­pa­nies have reg­is­tered with the in­sti­tute, stu­dents are ex­cited about the re-en­try of Pub­lic Sec­tor Un­der­tak­ings (PSUs) in the list of re­cruiters.

Af­ter only two com­pa­nies of­fered a hand­ful of jobs to last year’s IIT-B batch, four com­pa­nies have al­ready reg­is­tered with the in­sti­tute this year for the first phase and the num­bers are likely to grow.

“Come­back of PSUs is the high­light of this place­ment sea­son be­cause the com­pa­nies are from var­ied sec­tors and are open to hir­ing stu­dents from dif­fer­ent de­part­ments in­clud­ing elec­tri­cal, me­chan­i­cal and chem­i­cal,” said a mem­ber of IIT-B’s place­ment cell.

While the team re­fused to di­vulge names of the PSUs, they said that the com­pa­nies are from the pe­tro­leum as well as the elec­tri­cal sec­tor.
