The unanticipated December 2015 floods in Chennai put not only the city’s but also the Institute’s disaster management and mitigation measures to test. After the recent warnings of an approaching cyclone, we decided to talk to the authorities in order to gauge the preparedness of the institute to tackle such worst circumstances if they arise. In the following article, we compile the comments by the chairman of CCW, Professor K Sethupathi and Retd. Col. Jayakumar (Joint Registrar, students) along with a few insights from the placement team.
We present a detailed two-part report analysing the trends of the 2015-16 placement season, held in December 2015 and January 2016. This part of the report gives an overview of the placement scenario and unfolds the percentage of students placed, dependence on CGPA and the average number of job offers made.
