Placement cell is a platform in an institute where the industry and the students interact for the purpose of employment of outgoing students. It provides employment opportunities to the final year students through interviews, group discussions and tests that take place in the college premises. Most of the companies usually give presentations of their company profile before they conduct the interviews. In this presentation the students are also made aware of the nature of their jobs, salary structures/ perks, promotion avenues and advanced studies facilities.
