North East Campus Placement Report - 2010
Even as the Government mulls 44 new colleges and six engineering colleges to be setup in the North East, a big question remains on the future of the students passing out from these colleges. A good curriculum, a brilliant set of students cannot fill up the vacuum in placements marred by civil unrest in the region. The data was collected from the student and placement cells of the colleges, categorized, aggregated and averaged for the purpose of the study. The selection includes all companies that have interacted with the colleges for placements for academic year ending 2010.
Key insights from the report:
- A comparison revealed that an average of 60 companies visit National Institute of Technology(NIT) across various regions in India as compared to only 29 in the NITs in the east.
- A comparison of the placement situation in the colleges in the region vs. the rest of India reveals a dismal situation. The ratio of companies visiting the campuses is just 1/3rd the number compared to the rest of India.
- From the study, it has emerged that tier II engineering colleges had lower participation from companies for hiring final year students. When compared to colleges across India, only 8 companies visited colleges in the north east as compared to an average of 25 for other regional colleges.
