The year 2017-18 has been a boon to IITs, as around 50-60 percent of students have already been placed in the first week since IIT placements began. This year, hiring at the older IITs where placement batch sizes range from 900-1900 per campuses are up to 30% higher than the same period in 2016-17, which was a difficult year for campus placements. The first phase of IIT placements will continue till mid-December. It will resume in January and continue till March-April after a short break.
Companies like Goldman Sachs, Samsung, Citi Group, Microsoft, Uber among many others have gone to IIT campuses this year. A host of Asian companies from Japan, Taiwan, South Korea and Singapore have made their way into recruitments as well. This year Apple Inc., Nasdaq, and Rubrik have also debuted as recruiters for IIT Placements. Microsoft is the most aggressive recruiter offering the fattest package of 1+ crore INR. Microsoft has picked up some 23 students from IIT Roorkee apart from others from IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi.
