While the maiden batch of the nascent SRM University-AP is ready to set foot for the next venture, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) proudly announces 100% successful placement for its students. The first-ever placement drive in SRM University-AP began last year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, overcoming all the difficulties, the talented engineers of the CSE department found their passion and a job offer according to their will. The brilliant students of CSE bagged envious offers with the highest salary of 50 LPA and an average salary of 8 LPA. 71% of the students are placed with Super Dream and Dream offers, which is highly commendable.
Amid the unprecedented crisis, the hiring process was a difficult task to be performed for both the students and the recruiters. Corporate Relations and Career Services (CR&CS), the placement team of the university, has done an excellent job by conducting the placement drive with passion and dedication. The students were provided with every support they needed during these trying times. During their internships and projects in reputed companies, the students had hands-on experience, industry exposure, and became aware of the expectations of the corporate world. This experience helped the students to prepare for the job interviews. The numerous training sessions arranged by the CR&CS team for core and soft skill development brushed up their knowledge and personality. The mock interviews, sessions with corporate experts also assisted the students in their preparation. The interdisciplinary modernised curriculum provided the students with in-depth knowledge in their domain, strengthening their basic skills.
“Every moment at SRM-AP was so defining. Academics and research, 24×7 student-run Next Tech Lab, Semester Abroad and Entrepreneurship at UC Berkeley, USA and winning Hackathon in Bay area competing with MIT, Stanford and Carnegie Mellon gave us the wide exposure of the real world, which would not have been possible without the continuous support of our faculty and university management. Now, it is time that we start our life in Japan, and we are very much looking forward to the new chapter,” said Rajarshi Mazumder, who has received the highest offer of this season with a pay package of 50 LPA along with his twin Saptarshi. Sri Ritika Katragadda, who has been offered one of the best packages with 29.5 LPA, opined, “The selection process was tough, but with the extensive knowledge we gained in the classroom studies, I cleared it with ease.”
“The support I received from my professors and CR&CS team is unforgettable. I am forever grateful to their guidance, for being able to secure such a good offer,” said Sai Krishna Rohith, who bagged an offer of 20 LPA. “Prof Ragunathan is like a father figure to me. I can reach him anytime without any hesitation, even in case of a smallest doubt. All other faculty members were equally supportive,” asserted Venkata Sai Nikhith Nagamlla. Venkata also received an offer of 29.5 LPA.
Mr Vivekanandan, Assistant Director, Corporate Relations and Career Services, said, “We always looked for the best opportunities for our students. The talent exhibited by the CSE students during the internships, projects, curriculum and extra-curriculum activities naturally drew the best recruiters to SRM University-AP.”
“SRM University-AP has made its name as a reputed tech hub to the recruiters who are searching for the best engineers to recruit. We are certain that in the coming years, the numbers of top offers will further increase, creating a record in the country,” shared Professor Ragunathan, Associate Dean in the School of Engineering and Basic Sciences and Head of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
“SRM University-AP is founded with the vision to offer quality engineers, entrepreneurs and professionals to the country. In the First Placement Drive itself, the university has proved its mettle and has become a favourable destination for top recruiters,” said Prof V S Rao, Vice-Chancellor, SRM University-AP.
