For many students of the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B), money is not everything. Most students have shunned lucrative job offers by corporate and have instead chosen fields of research and education. One of the most prestigious educational institutes in the country, the IIT-B on Friday 29th July declared its placement report for the June 2010-2011 batch.
Almost 1,200 students from eight graduate and post-graduate courses participated in the campus placements; 950 got jobs. The report says there has been a 50% rise in the number of jobs offered and 250 companies (33% increases) visited the campus.
The report said there are 286 students from the A-list category with pay packages of 8.5 lakh and above per annum. The highest pay package received this year is over 25 lakh per annum.
"Though the number of students opting for lucrative engineering jobs is higher, there has been a significant rise in the number of students opting for co-engineering, research-oriented jobs," said professor Ravi Sinha, in-charge of placements at IIT-B. "The number of companies that came for R&D jobs was a lot higher compared to previous years. However, education-related jobs were fewer."
