Placements showed better pace this year at IIT Bombay compared to last years’ numbers, with around 1,220 job offers made by more than 350 companies in the last 12 days of this campus placement season.

The number of jobs offered this year at IIT Bombay in just 12 days this year is higher than the total jobs offered in first 18 days last year, IIT officials said.

“Our students have received a total of 1,220 job offers so far this year,” says Ujjwal Banthia, Placement Manager, Placement Office, IIT Bombay.

Among the total jobs offered till December 12, as many as 908 were accepted by students, says IIT Bombay placement official. Last year, as many as 895 placements were made till 18th day of campus placement season in the premium institution.


“Total Jobs in Phase I (December 1-18) of placements last year was 895. This year we have crossed the mark of 900 within 12 days,” Banthia says.


While E-commerce and start-ups were the top recruiters this season, Core Engineering jobs were the top choice by 1,664 students who registered for placements this year. The total number of final year students, including B.Tech and M.Tech, is around 1,800 students in the campus, officials said.

Start-up hunts talent at IIT Bombay:


“We have seen a rise in number of hires by E-Commerce and startups. Core engineering/manufacturing firms were promoted and in response, they also recruited in large numbers. Increase in number of students opting for core engineering sector jobs clearly states the opposite. Students prefer a job where they can gain diversified learning experience with freedom to implement their own initiatives and opportunities to switch roles within the firm itself,” he says.

The increasing number of Japanese companies visiting the campus took international interest in the IIT crop to the new high this year. According to Banthia, “Rise in the number of Japanese firms visiting our campus clearly shows increased international presence.”

While major recruiters this year were Olacabs, Dar Al Handashah, VISA, Credit-suisse and Honeywell, ‘Make in India’ concept is also being constantly promoted by IIT Bombay placement managers.


“This year we worked in line with the Government of India initiative of revival in manufacturing with its ‘Make in India’ campaign and had given preference to core engineering companies,” he says.


Incubating Entrepreneurs:

Besides, IIT Bombay is providing a conducive environment for start-ups to its students with its incubation center – Society for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SINE).


“We have our own incubation center – SINE – which fosters the growth of newly originated startups. Apart from SINE, we have entrepreneurship cell which conducts year long sessions and competitions to provide platform for them to grow,” he says.


However, if this new crop of entrepreneurs fails to make a mark, doors for campus placement are open for them in near future, says the official.


“A student can opt for deferred placements, in which, he/she is allowed to work on his own venture for two years and if it doesn't work out then they have an option to register for campus placement in forthcoming year,” says Banthia.
