AEC placement cell's commendable service

By CITY CORRESPONDENT

GUWAHATI, July 15 - Since its establishment in 1955, graduates from the Assam Engineering College (AEC) have enjoyed high demand in all sectors. The Training and Placement Cell (TPC) became an active functional unit of the college from the year, 2002. The TPC initiates interactions with various organisations and industries to organise campus recruitment at the AEC. In the last decade or so, the TPC has provided the students ample opportunities in diverse fields. The AEC has been able to place 90 per cent of its students through the TPC.

The highest package offered in the history of the AEC through its TPC has been Rs 11 lakh per annum. Last year, the highest package offered was Rs 10 lakh per annum. As a premier engineering institution of the region, the AEC has been able to attract Maharatna companies like the ONGC, Navratna companies like OIL, software giants like Zaloni, IT giants like WIPRO, TCS, etc., in the last decade.

Some other notable companies that are a regular part of the placement activities of the AEC are Tata Advanced Systems Limited, Ashok Leyland, Premium Transmission, Jindal Steel and Power, Kirloskar Bros, Crompton Greaves, Halliburton, ATC (American Tower Corporation), IBM (International Business Machines), National Highways Authority of India (NHAI), Airport Authority of India (AAI), Brahmaputra Crackers and Polymers Limited (BCPL), etc.

The AEC has been able to place its students in leading government and corporate sectors throughout the globe. The intake capacity of the AEC per year is 450, and the pass percentage was around 80 last year. Out of 450 students, 300 students are interested in jobs on an average and the rest of the students prefer to go for higher studies, said the placement officer, Dr Nabajit Saikia.

Talking to this correspondent, he said that many companies in the last two to three years have been setting certain criteria for placement like the students having no backlog all through their engineering courses. Some companies prefer 75 per cent marks all through the career of the students. Dr Saikia added that students fail in maintaining 75 per cent marks while pursuing their engineering courses as they tend to relax between the semesters. Students do very hard work before they get enrolled into the engineering courses, but fail to maintain the momentum due to various reasons, he said, adding that this year the AEC�s target would be to achieve 100 per cent placement for its students.

Dr Amrita Ganguly, Training and Placement Officer, added that the TPC is run jointly by the Training and Placement Officer and the Training and Placement Secretary. They are assisted by other TP coordinators comprising student representatives from various disciplines. The TPC is not just concentrating on offering jobs to the students; it has been making serious efforts to improve the quality of students by organising training, motivational talks, seminars, workshops, etc., by availing of the services of experts. Organising technical seminars, group discussions, awareness programmes, pre-placement talks and inviting prominent people to the AEC are other activities of the TPC.
