Over 1,100 students of the College of Engineering, Guindy, got offer letters from Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) at Anna University on Friday. This represents the highest number of offers received by the students of an engineering college from a single company, P. Mannar Jawahar, Placement Director, Centre for University-Industry Collaboration, Anna University, said.
Announcing the results, T. Sridhar, Chief People Officer, CTS, said, “Our relationship with Anna University dates back to 1996 when we started our campus recruitment programme. Cognizant has become the fastest growing IT services and BPO company largely due to the exemplary contribution made by the alumni of Anna University and other premier institutions in the country.”
Dr. Jawahar said, “Cognizant has been a key recruiter from Anna University for many years and we cherish the association with the company.”
Congratulating the students, the Dean of College of Engineering, Dr. M. Sekar, and Dr. S. Shanmugavel, Registrar-in-charge, Anna University, exhorted the students to uphold the value systems that Anna University had enshrined in them and urged them to continue to make the institution proud in the industry.
Cognizant also announced that while it recruited engineers traditionally for technical functions, the students of Anna University to whom offers have been made, will also be deployed for techno-business functions.
This would help CTS to provide solutions to business problems of their customers and help them build stronger businesses.SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT
