i am not 70+ cgpa in ug does it affect my placement in Mtech VLSI design in vit Chennai
The CGPA will serve as a screening criteria during the time of your placement. The cutoff will depend upon the company coming for the placement. Some companies may allow those above a 6.5 CGPA to sit for an interview, some may even allow a single backlog. So Consult with your Placement and Training cell to know how much each company would require.
how are placements of ece in vit chennai
In todays date, VIT Chennai has established its own identity and is no longer recognized as a sister campus of VIT Vellore, somewhat following footfalls of Goa and Hyderabad Campuses of BITS Pilani. The campus has good infrastructure, faculty and residential facilities at par with VIT Vellore.
Electronics and Communication at VIT Chennai has more or less average placements with almost 80% students getting placed with a median package anywhere between 5 and 6 LPA. VIT Chennai has a huge locational advantage amd being located near IT and Industrial Hubs at Chennai as well as Research and Startup Hubs like the IITM Research Park, provide huge impetus in training and placements. Some of the Top Companies like Intel, Cisco, Ford, MuSigma, Qualcomm, TCS, Cognizant, TVS, Accenture, Wipro recruited students from ECE Department at VIT Chennai the previous year.
Electronics is a branch with excellent career scope and research potential. Vellore Institute of Technology also has a reputation of many students preparing for the GRE or GATE Exam for admission in universities abroad or in higher technical institutes in India like Top IITs and IISc Bangalore for a Masters degree in Electronics.

Comp Science Engg in Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai and CSE With specilisation in Arificiial Intelligence and Machine Learning in VIT Chennai. Which course i can join. Pl explain with all pros and cons
I believe CSE Thiagarajar College of Engineering under the eminent Anna University is knots ahead of Private Institutes like VIT Chennai and SRM. You will have access to better Faculty and Research Facilties.
From Dr APJ Abdul Kalam to Dr K Sivan of ISRO, Anna University alumini are known all over the world and hence an excellent employer outlook. Anna University has produced brilliant Researchers, Academicians and Engineering Professionals in all these year, and its the experience of Professors in curriculum which play an important role in your development as an Engineer. As far as Placement is concerned, being located near IT Hubs at Chennai, Thiagarajar too has excellent Placements in CSE with TCS, Infosys, Amazon, GE, Accenture, Microsoft and L&T being few of the top recruiters. Secondly the peer culture at Institutes if Anna University is excellent and many move on to pursue Masters at top Institutes like IISc Bangalore and IIT Madras, post Bachelors. All the Best.
