[h=1]IIT-Madras sees 56% jump in pre-placement offers[/h]
Indian Institute of Technology - Madras saw a 56% jump in the pre-placement offers (PPOs) this academic year (2017-18).

As on November 6, as many as 114 PPOs have been received by students of IIT Madras as against 73 in the preceding academic year (2016-17).

Manu Santhanam, advisor, training and placement, IIT-Madras, said: "One of the principal reasons is an increase in the number of internships in companies that are large recruiters such as the American Software company Microsoft, the telecommunications equipment firm Qualcomm and the multinational financial services firm Goldman Sachs."

While the core sectors accounted for the highest number of PPOs, there were also a large number of offers from financial services firms. The major recruiters were Qualcomm, Microsoft, Citi, Goldman Sachs, Samsung R&D and Texas Instruments.

Nearly 60% of the PPOs went to students of computer science and electrical engineering departments as the core engineering industry caters to the other engineering disciplines.

[h=1]IIT-Madras placements: Apple, Nasdaq, UIDAI among recruiters[/h]
This year's placements at IIT-Madras will see first-time participants like Apple Inc and Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) in the recruitment process that is scheduled to begin on December 1.

Nearly 15% of the registered companies are first-time companies. The other first-time companies which have registered for the first phase of placements are UBS AG, Nasdaq Stock Market, Alvarez and Marsal India Pvt Ltd, Country Garden, Halma India Pvt Ltd, Rubrik and Sekisui Chemical.

The campus is also seeing a jump in the number of companies visiting the institute this year. A total of 270 companies have registered so far for more than 400 job profiles, compared to 250 companies last year (2016-17) for the same number of job profiles.

The first phase of campus recruitment for 2017-18 will be held between December 1 and 10 with a break of one day (December 5) in between.

About 43% of the recruiters are from core engineering / R & D sector, 25% from finance / analytics / consulting sectors, and 32% from the IT sector. The Institute will host more than 50 startups this year.

Traditional recruiters such as Microsoft, Samsung R and D, Goldman Sachs, Eaton, Schlumberger, Mahindra, Intel, Bajaj, EXL, Citi, Larsen and Toubro are coming to IIT-Madras for recruitment this year as well. As many as 19 companies have advertised international profiles, most of which are for positions in Asian countries such as Japan, Singapore and Taiwan, along with the US.

The institute has already recorded a 56% increase in the pre-placement offers (PPOs), which come from internships. As many as 114 PPOs were received this year by IIT-Madras students as against 73 in the previous year.




Manu Santhanam, advisor, training and placement, IIT Madras, said, "Our team of students and the staff at the IIT-Madras Placement Office have worked hard to bring in a large number of recruiters to the campus, and this placement season looks promising. We have already seen a major jump in the number of PPOs, so we are hoping that the success translates into the placements too."

More than 1,100 students have registered for placements across different study streams and departments. The number is expected to increase, as more research scholars become eligible (this happens as and when they achieve a specific target in their research programme).

Around 35 students have opted for deferred placements as they are either pursuing startup ventures or planning to apply for higher studies.

To reduce the stress faced by the students in the early phase of the process, IIT-Madras has done away with the 'Graveyard Slot,' which begins in the early hours of day one, usually from midnight to 6am.

[h=1]3000 students of premier institutions to get PM fellowship for PhD in IITs and IISc[/h]
The Cabinet on Wednesday approved implementation of the 'Prime Minister's Research Fellows (PMRF)' scheme - meant to offer fellowship for PhD programme in IITs and IISc - at a total cost of Rs 1,650 crore for a period of seven years beginning 2018-19 financial year.
The students who have completed or are in the final year of B. Tech or Integrated M.Tech or M.Sc. in Science and Technology streams from premier institutions such as IISc, IITs, NITs, IISERs and IIITs will be offered direct admission in PhD programme in the IITs and IISc under the Scheme which was announced in the Budget on February 1.

Such students, who fulfill eligibility criteria, and short-listed through a selection process will be offered a fellowship of Rs 70,000 per month for the first two years, Rs 75,000 per month for the 3rd year, and Rs 80,000 per month in the 4th and 5th years.

"Apart from this, a research grant of Rs 2 lakh will be provided to each of the fellows for a period of five years to cover their foreign travel expenses for presenting research papers in international conferences and seminars. A maximum of 3000 Fellows would be selected in a three year period, beginning 2018-19," said a government statement, announcing the Cabinet decision.

It said, "The scheme will go a long way in tapping talent pool of the country for carrying out research indigenously in cutting edge science and technology domains. The research under the Scheme will address our national priorities at the one hand and shortage of quality faculty in the premier educational institutions of the country, on the other."

பள்ளி குழந்தைகள், தங்கள் முதுகில் சுமந்து செல்லும் வகையில், எடை குறைவான, சிறிய மேசையுடன் கூடிய, 'ஸ்கூல் பேக்'கை, கான்பூர், ஐ.ஐ.டி.,யில் படித்த மாணவர், உருவாக்கி சாதனை படைத்துள்ளார்.

உ.பி., மாநிலம், கான்பூரில் உள்ள, ஐ.ஐ.டி., எனப்படும், இந்திய தொழில்நுட்ப மையத்தில்
படித்த மாணவர், ஈஷான் சதாசிவன், 27.இவர், பள்ளி குழந்தைகள் பயன்படுத்தக்கூடிய, சிறிய மேசை இணைக்கப்பட்ட, ஸ்கூல் பேக்கை உருவாக்கி உள்ளார். 680 கிராம் எடையுள்ள இந்த பேக்கின் விலை, 400 ரூபாய் மட்டுமே.

இந்த பேக்கில், இலகு வகை டியூப்களால் ஆன, மடக்கும் கால்களுடன் கூடிய, சிறிய மேசை இணைக்கப்பட்டுஉள்ளது. பள்ளி குழந்தைகளின் முதுகில் உராய்வு ஏற்பட்டு பாதிப்பு வராமல் தடுக்கும் வகையில், தண்ணீர் புகாத துணியால், இந்த பேக் தயாரிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. பேக்கில் இருந்து, தேவைப்படும்போது, மேசையை தனியாக பிரித்து எடுக்கலாம். இதற்கு, 'டெஸ்கிட்' என, பெயரிடப்பட்டு உள்ளது.

இதுகுறித்து, ஈஷான் சதாசிவன் கூறியதாவது:இலகு ரக மேசையுடன் கூடிய ஸ்கூல் பேக்கை, தற்போது, நாடு முழுவதும், 10 மாவட்டங்களில், 17 ஆயிரம் மாணவர்கள் பயன்படுத்துகின்றனர்.

வருங்காலத்தில், இரவிலும் பயன்படுத்தும் வகையில், எல்.இ.டி., விளக்குடன் கூடிய மேசையுடன் ஸ்கூல் பேக் தயாரிக்கப்பட உள்ளது.
கடந்த, 2015ல், 'புரோஸாக் இன்னவேட்டர்ஸ் லிமிடெட்' என்ற பெயரில், 'ஸ்டார்ட் அப்' நிறுவனம் துவக்கினேன். அதற்கு, மத்திய அரசின் நிதியுதவியாக, 20 லட்சம் ரூபாய் கிடைத்தது.
இலகு ரக பேக்குகளை பயன்படுத்துவதால், பள்ளி குழந்தைகளுக்கு, முதுகு வலி வருவதை தடுக்க முடியும்.

உ.பி., ஜார்க்கண்ட், ம.பி., ராஜஸ்தான் ஆகிய மாநிலங்களின் அரசுகளுடன் சேர்ந்து, இலகு ரக பேக்குகளை விற்பனை செய்து வருகிறோம். தெலுங்கானா மாநில அரசுடனும், இது தொடர்பாக பேச்சு நடத்தி வருகிறோம்.இவ்வாறு அவர் கூறினார்.
