Over 680 offers were bagged by Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee students in the first week of placement season including 13 from international companies a statement from the institute said on Friday

In the ongoing placements at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), over 500 students were hired by recruiters by both global and domestic companies within five days, the institute said on Thursday. A few students opted for the institute's deferred placement available for those interested in pursuing their start-up dreams, IIT-Delhi said in a statement.

However, at the ongoing placements at IIT-D more than 500 students were hired with over 25 global offers. "Among the global offers, a maximum of six offers was fetched from Microsoft on December 1", a statement from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi read.

The institute has received 22 worldwide offers so far. We try to ensure that all kinds of job profiles get a fair representation in the roster.

"The global offers came from companies in Singapore, Hong Kong, the US, Amsterdam and Japan".

Students also bagged over 150 pre-placement offers, of which over 80 were accepted. Among national recruiters, 30 offers came from INTEL. It felt that undue publicity given to packages have the effect of devaluing national placements over worldwide placements as well as core jobs over finance and consulting jobs.

"This increase shows that IIT-M students are being increasingly preferred for research-oriented positions by the Industry", said Professor Manu Santhanam, advisor, Training and Placements, IIT Madras. Over 300 organisations across sectors offering over 500 job roles have already registered for placements.

The IIT did not reveal the exact worth of the high-value packages, saying it felt undue publicity on the matter would devalue national placements over the worldwide placements, among others. "I love coding and this will be a great platform to hone my skills", said Nikhil who also interned with Microsoft. The phase 1 of the placements will continue till December 15 afterwards the phase 2 will commence from January 2018.
