Campus Placement with Alumni Support

Overall Placement Coordinators appeal the alumni support in Campus Placement.

With your help we can ensure that no student graduates unplaced and each student gets an opportunity which gives wings to their dreams!

Greetings from Students’ Placement Office

The SPO aims to maximise the number of career opportunities for the students of IIT Kanpur. These opportunities can be in terms of job openings, internships, live projects, etc.

Our alumni have continued to nurture the institute and its students over the years and yet again, we believe, with the help of our alumni, we can enhance the corporate exposure of our students. Hence, we request you to help us increase the number of opportunities for our students by bringing your firm to our job placement and internship processes. We also request you to please reach out to us in case you have any job/internship opportunities that can help our students. The current highest statistics of 80%-90% for job placement (and 40% to 50% for internships) can change to 90%-100% with your contribution. With your help, we can ensure that there are enough internship opportunities as well.

In this page, we have mentioned about the on-going works that the students have taken up and all the relevant links which can be shared with the recruiters if needed.
