Speaking about the placement strategies, Dr. Varun Dutt, Advisor, Career and Placement Cell, IIT Mandi, said, “We are hosting separate drives for Core and Information Technology (IT) branches. This separation is helping the students to better decide which companies to sit for and hence reducing overlaps”.
“This year, we are keeping the placement process longer per company to give more time to companies to conduct their process, reducing stress on students. Furthermore, we are also inviting non-core companies to provide more opportunities to students,” Dr Dutt added.
