Impact of Covid-19:

The prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic has however made serious changes in the entire system, from starting and trying to conclude everything online. 


Prof. Abhishek Kumar, Head, Center for Career Development, IIT Guwahati, said, “While the majority of the students sitting for the placement are back to the campus, a significant portion of students are still away from the campus. Lessons learnt from the last years’ virtual placement process have helped us in better planning this year, so that students on-campus and off-campus both will not face any difficulty.

Dr. Abhishek further added that all the stakeholders of the placement process have prepared themselves for all possible issues which could likely arise in the process and have overcome the difficulties collectively. Further, the efforts of the students were highly appreciated who have participated in the ongoing placement process even in these difficult times, since they have successfully understood the companies requirement and prepared themselves to meet these demands. The current placement statistics will set new records this year positively, mentioned Prof. Abhishek.”
