718 students placed in 43 companies


As many as 718 students from Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE), an autonomous institution run by JSS Mahavidyapeeta, here had been placed in over 43 companies in a span of two months.

“This is just the beginning of the academic year and we expecting at least 30 more companies to offer placements to the remaining students in the next 45 days. This year, the job trend is rosy and more dream companies were hiring our students offering an attractive pay package,” said SJCE principal Syed Shakeeb Ur Rahman.

In 2014-15, 779 students from various disciplines had got placements in about 90 companies. This means, 90 per cent of the total intake of students had been placed. Meanwhile, 60-65 per cent students from other branches of engineering had managed to get jobs during last year, he explained. Companies such as Goldman Sachs, Oracle had recently conducted their campus recruitment. Microsoft and several other top companies in the IT sector are expected to visit soon for the placements, he said.

“The quality of intake of students has been playing an important role that result in maximum placements,” he replied.

One of the key reasons for the SJCE students getting placed with attractive package is their skills, exposure and high retention level. “They don’t hop from one job to another and remain in one job at least for two or more years,” said SJCE placement officer Pradeep.

SJCE Dean C.N. Ravi Kumar said the students possess better skills than students of other colleges because of the kind of educational procedure – teaching and learning - followed at the institute. “By holding a number of academic events every year to make them job-ready, the students are kept on their toes,” he said.

Even the placements for MCA had improved and over 70 percent students had been placed in about 20 companies with offers ranging from Rs 3.5 lakh to Rs 5 lakh.

Chandrashekar, head, Department of Mechanical Engineering, SJCE, Mysuru said, “Students from most branches get global exposure through workshops/student summits. This helps them develop their skill sets and prepare for the best.”
