Placements in the Delhi Technological University broke their highest record yet, when a student bagged a job offer of Rs. 93 lakh per annum. During this placement season, which started on August 1, so far about 40 recruiters have offered up to 265 jobs.
Google, USA made the offer of Rs. 93 lakh per annum (which includes about 125 Google stock units) to Computer Engineering student Himanshu Jindal. “I owe my thanks to my parents, faculty members and, of course, the Vice-Chancellor Prof. P.B. Sharma. I am feeling very happy that I will get to work in a world renowned company. All this is possible because of my hard work and the blessings of my parents,” said Himanshu.
The second highest pay package was of Rs. 70 lakhs and it has been offered to not one but about 11 students by EPIC, a US- based software company.
Other offers include a Rs. 28 lakh pay package from Goldman Sachs and a pay package of Rs. 19 lakhs that was made to eight students by Amazon. “DTU’s undergraduate and research programmes are of high relevance and great value to the industries,” said Prof. Sharma.
The university said a major highlight of this year’s placement was that the leading companies, besides making job offers to final year students, were also offering paid internship to third year students. This, said the university, might assure even better pre-placement job offers.
