NIT-Calicut Placements

[Based on info from official website and articles in the Hindu Newspaper dt. 23-03-2009 and 06-04-2009 ]

NIT-Calicut(National Institute of Technology- Calicut) is one of the premier NITs of India.It has quite good placements , as we shall see in this article.
The official website , gives quite little information. Relevant to us would be the last 2 years placements stats of BE Degree .
To understand clearly how the data has been given , we need to understand the format:

(Branch : EL-PL-DR-%)

where EL-Eligible students, PL-Placed, DR-Dream jobs (Students who got more than one job), %-Percentage of placement.
The Branches are: Computer Science & Engineering ,Electronics & Communication Engineering ,Electrical & Electronics Engineering ,Mechanical Engineering ,Production Engineering,Chemical Engineering.

(Please click on the image for a better view)
Clearly the averages are quite good , especially for the CS/EE related branches and Mechanical. All branches show a good % of placement.

According to The Hindu newspaper, for the BE degree students being placed in 08-09 :
  • 309 B.Tech. students got 484 job offers, 97 per cent placements. Of these, 175 students got more than one offer.

  • Highest salary offered was Rs.12 lpa to 3 CS students by DE Saw Research, an IT consulting company. The lowest salary offered was Rs.3 llpa. (Last year, the highest was Rs.10 lpa ,lowest Rs.2.2 lpa ).This is a good improvement.However , since the highest is 12 lpa , it is unlikely that NIT-C had any foreign placements(which are usually over $50,000 pa).

  • The average salary remained almost same (Rs 4.75 lpa to Rs.4.8 lakh lpa).This is good , considering that there is a recession on currently. The no. of students wrt. salary range chart is given below:

  • Till February, 95 companies visited the campus (from August 2008 to February 2009). Out of these, 43 were engineering and manufacturing sector companies, 33 were IT product based companies, 9 consulting companies, 6 ITES companies, 2 were banking companies and 2 others.10 (PSUs) recruited 25 per cent of the graduates.

  • 97% of the students got placement in core engineering areas while rest in ITES sectors.Note that "Core" term may have been misused , as they may have considered IT as "Core" for CS.Even though Goldman Sachs is Investment Bank , they usually give IT Jobs(at good salaries though) to engineering graduates.They do not usually give Analyst positions to engineering grads , preferring to hire MBAs instead.(However , at IITs and BITS-Pilani , I-Banks do give junior Analyst positions to engg. grads.But this is very rare , just a couple of students from the whole batch get it.)

  • The major recruiters included Larsen and Toubro (24), Alstom (18), Areva T&D (13), Maruti (20), Tata Consulting Engineering (18), CDOT (16), NTPC (18), BEML (8), Nokia (10), L&T ECC (28), Indian Oil (8), Crompton Greaves (7), Power Grid (13), Bajaj (5), Oracle (12), Samsung (5), Tata Motors (5), Analog Devices (5) and Philips (5).

  • Among the companies that offered the highest pay packages include Yahoo! (Rs.12 lakh , given to an MCA student); D.E. Shaw Research (Rs.12 lakh); Amazon (Rs.11 lakh); Microsoft (Rs.9 lakh); Adobe (Rs.9.5 lakh); IOCL, NTPC, Power Grid and MRPL (Rs.8.5 lakh); DRDO, BEML and CDOT (Rs.6.5 lakh); Goldman Sachs (Rs.7 lakh) ; and Texas Instruments (Rs.6 lakh).

On the whole , placements were very good in NIT-C , inspite of the recession.
