As an Institute of Eminence, IIT Kharagpur stands tall as the flag bearer of nation building with an aspirational employee pool that strengthens the edifice of Atmanirbhar Bharat. With the bench mark of 1600 plus offers within 12 days of placement and 900 plus internship offers for the session 2021-22, the tremendous skill set of the students and extraordinary support from the corporates have upheld the legacy of IIT Kharagpur, the mother of all IITs.

IIT Kharagpur strives persistently to enhance its performance by introducing new advancements that includes micro-specializations, industry-academia collaborations, comprehensive arrangements to facilitate interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary learning, enabling students to excel the confines of their respective curricula. 48 offers in the CTC range of 0.5 - 2.64 crore with 45 plus international offers were received by the students of the Institute this year with 5 foreign students also securing jobs in the campus placements. More than 300 companies have participated in this placement season across all sectors including software, high level coding, analytics, consulting, core engineering companies, banking / finance, high frequency trading etc. Companies including Airbus, Accenture Japan, Da Vinci Derivatives, Excel, Google, Microsoft, Qualcomm, Squarepoint Capital, N.

The Institute invites various business houses to the Campus Recruitment Programme and Entrepreneurship Summits to give the graduating students an opportunity to prove themselves and add value to the organizations they desire to be a part of. We are delighted to acknowledge that most of our corporate recruiters have shown immense trust in our institution, strengthening our bond as the academic partner. We prepare the students for solving the problems which have a direct or indirect bearing on the society. I hope the CDC exuberates the confidence of producing the best in the market among the recruiters by creating a positive experience, extending our relations and building new ones as it is said, do not wait for the right opportunity - create it. I thank all the CDC members and recruiters for their valuable support, contribution and participation. We wish them a bright future.
