“Though it was anticipated to be a difficult year, we have done reasonably well in Phase 1 of the placement session,” said R Ayothiraman, professor in-charge, Office of Career Services (OCS), at IIT Delhi.

He said his office is striving to get more companies/profiles in phase 2 of placement, which would start in mid-January.

Out of the 1,000 plus students already selected by companies, 42% are placed in the core technical sector, followed by the IT sector, which is also core to some departments like computer science, mathematics and computing, IIT Delhi said in its release. Roles in management are core to students in the management studies department, it added.“As expected, this year, the core sector has picked up more students than previous years,” said Anishya O Madan, industrial liaison officer, Office of Career Services, at IIT Delhi.The placement season for full-time hiring of the institute’s undergraduate and postgraduate students spans from December to May.

As of now, more than 370 organisations across sectors offering 700-plus job profiles have registered to hire IIT Delhi students in the second phase.

Data on the total number of students seeking OCS services will be collated only at the end of the season in June, the institute said.
