CHENNAI : Indian Institute of Technology Madras Students have registered a strong performance in Pre-Placement this academic year with the offers increasing during 2022-23. A robust summer internship process, which the Institute conducted completely in offline mode, helped connect the Industry and students and drove up the Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs).

As many as 333 PPOs (as on 13th November 2022) have been made to IIT Madras students during the 2022-23 Academic Year as against 231 offers during the entire 2021-22. The PPOs will continue to be made till the commencement of Phase I of Campus Placements, which is scheduled for 1st December 2022.

A major factor behind this performance in PPOs is the strong internship programme of the institute. This process facilitates students to intern in companies and leads to PPOs. The constant increase in PPOs is the result of excellent performance of students during their internships.

Explaining the factors behind the increase in PPOs this year, Prof. Sathyan, Advisor (Placement), IIT Madras, said, “We are pleased to see the increase in PPOs this year. We encourage more companies to use the internship as a long interview process to assess the student and offer PPOs. A student being offered and accepting a PPO is likely to lead a good long-term association with the company.”
