As the world marches into the 21st century, India, at the forefront of the developing world needs an increasing lot of intelligent, astute, hard working and technically proficient minds. Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT K) well known for its cutting edge research and teaching programmes prides itself on creating an environment that facilitates in not only the academic but the overall development of the student.

The hall mark of IIT K has always been relentless strive towards excellence and perfection.

The academic curriculum at IITK has strong emphasis on basic sciences, engineering and humanities, which is successful in producing competent engineers and scientists with concern for human values and surroundings.

Here at Student Placement Office (SPO) our effort is to provide a platform to facilitate interaction between students and companies so both can find the best match as their aspirations and requirements. Quick on the up-take, with good communication and human relations skills and aware of modern developments, the typical IIT K graduate is expected to play a very important role in organizations like yours wanting to be internationally competitive in terms of products, services and technology.
