The Directorate strives to set the bar higher in terms of performance and to meet the expectations of the key stakeholders, including industry, students, parents, and management.


The Directorate is to guide students to choose the right career, give knowledge, skill, and aptitude, and meet the human resources requirements of the industry.


  • The Directorate of Corporate Relations and Career Services is headed by Mr MS Vivekanandan. As the Associate Director, Mr Vivekanandan oversees the Placement Office (PO) and the Career Development Centre (CDC). His vast experience, knowledge and wisdom have been instrumental in forging partnerships with the industry for recruitment, internships and facilitating active industry-institute linkages for mutual benefit.

Creating a future talent pool for the industry

  • The rise in global competition has prompted organisations to devise strategies for a talented and innovative workforce to gain a competitive edge. Developing an internship policy is an impactful strategy for creating a future talent pool for the industry. The Internship programme helps fresh pass-outs gain professional know-how and benefits corporate with fresh perspectives on business-related issues and even discovering future business leaders.

A favoured destination for recruiters

  • The Directorate of Corporate Relations & Career Services interacts closely with the industry to make the university a favoured destination for national and international organisations looking to recruit fresh talent. SRM University-AP considers the Placement Process very crucial and extends every kind of support to ensure that the students are given the best opportunities to streamline their career interests.

Best Placement Outcomes

  • The placement team continuously endeavours to ensure that SRM University-AP has the best Placement results and remains the most favoured destination for recruiting organisations. This is possible only with the assistance and full co-operation of all students.

Placement Policy

The Placement Policy for the students has evolved over the years to maximise the benefits of all the stakeholders. To realise a win-win situation for SRM Chennai and our partner organisations, all students must understand the Placement Policy and follow it strictly. It may be noted that some policy changes may take place during the year in the best interest of the whole batch. The placement policy applies to all students registered for the Campus Placements of SRM University-AP (including the ones who may de-register). It is to be followed during the entire placement season.
