This is a significant jump from the highest pay package of Rs 17.42 lakh per annum offered to a student of the 2019-20 batch of the premier college.
Muskan Khedia (20), will be joining as a software development engineer-I at Microsoft’s Hyderabad office in mid-2021. “My professional journey has begun well. I will make the most of this opportunity,” said the Balangir girl. Muskan belongs to a business family and completed her Class X from Little Flower School, Balangir, and Plus II from Balangir Public School.
Similarly, other students of the 2020-21 batch have also bagged good offers during the ongoing recruitment drive. Harikishen Singh (21) of the computer science and engineering branch has been offered Rs 30 lakh per annum by Timescale. “Currently, I am interning with them as I pursue my last year of engineering,” said Singh, a Bhubaneswar boy.
More than 15 placement drives have been completed for the 2020-21 batch, with four to five drives currently under way. Many well-known multinational companies such as Tata Steel, Deloitte, Amazon, TCS, Accenture, Factset, Analog Devices, Incture Technologies, Tejas Networks, Juspay and TekSystems have already hired from the college.
“We are expecting a few dozen more companies to participate in the drive. For non-engineering students, we are looking at companies like Innocule, Pradan, Jaro Education and other consultancy firms. These companies will participate in subsequent rounds of the recruitment drive,” said S K Pradhan, the college’s training and placement officer.
“Our brilliant students will fight against all odds that have arisen due to Covid and take top positions in many companies,” added Pradhan.
