Qualcomm, Intel, Google and US-based research firm MSCI made the maximum number of offers at the placement session of Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT-M) here.
Placement session for 2015-16 began on December 1, but was postponed to this month due to the torrential rains in the city. The session resumed yesterday and a total of 339 offers were made by various companies and 286 students were placed, IIT Madras said in a statement.
Qualcomm offered placements to 14 candidates, research firm MSCI to 11, Intel gave offers to seven, while e-commerce major Flipkart selected six students. The numbers for Google were not available.
Chinese electronic major Xiaomi also offered placements to five candidates, the release said. "Many startup companies like Swiggy and UrbanLadder showed prominence at the placements.
This was highly encouraging for the students who were looking to placements after we had to postpone it due to the floods," IIT-Madras' Training and Placement Advisor V Babu said.
