Many more companies are scheduled to visit in the remaining part of Phase II (of placement season), which is on till May,” IIT-D said in a statement.

Over 900 students got “job offers of their choice”, it added.

Most placements (32 per cent) were seen in core engineering streams like electrical, civil, mechanical, chemical, etc.

While 43 students got selected for opportunities in Europe, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and US, among others, only 33 have decided explore these options, said the varsity. More than 160 pre-placement offers were bagged by students, of which around 90 were accepted.
