The strong internship program and pre-placement talks organized by IIT Guwahati’s Centre for Career Development for students are the primary reasons for the sharp increase in PPOs.
Excellent student performance and excellent mentorship during these sessions are also significant contributors.

According to Dr. Abhishek Kumar, Head, Centre for Career Development, IIT Guwahati, major companies have begun to show more interest in recruiting candidates through PPO mode, which has been on the rise in recent years. He stated that the institute organised webinars to assist students in learning about the fields. “In addition, we collaborated with technical clubs to help students access relevant study/course material for specific profiles, which resulted in an increase in PPOs this year,” he added.
