Our placement process is extremely successful. About 150 large and medium sized companies visit our campus every year to recruit our students. On average, 90% of our students who are interested in securing jobs through campus placements succeed in doing so. As a result, most of our students have their career paths charted much before graduation. This is a validation of the quality of education and experience they get at BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus.
The placement scenario at our campus has been very positive. Even though 2012 was the first graduating batch, 90% of the students who appeared for placements secured a job. The companies that hired our students have given excellent feedback regarding their technical and interpersonal skills. About 150 reputed companies visited our campus in 2011-2012. Most of them are visiting again this academic year and more have been added to the list.
Dual Phased Placement Season: A distinguishing factor of our placement process is that it occurs in two separate phases. This is because of the Practice School program in the final year of the graduating students. In each semester, only half of the final year students are present in campus. The other half attends a semester-long internship which is prescribed in the curriculum. In order to meet all the students of the graduating batch, most companies send in their
recruitment teams twice a year. The phases are as follows:
First Semester : August to November
Second Semester : January to April
