| Saturday | 31st July, 2021
Sweety Jain, has broken the records of highest salary in campus placements by bagging a Rs 40 lakh salary per annum offer from a software giant.
The Pandemic has brought a great depression and many people lost opportunities due to the pandemic but nothing could stop one girl from achieving the best.
Sardar Vallabhbhai National Institute of Technology (SVNIT) has many reasons to cheer. A girl student of its electronics and communication engineering department, Sweety Jain, has broken the records of highest salary in campus placements by bagging a Rs 40 lakh salary per annum offer from a software giant.
The second highest salary to be offered is Rs 37.5 lakh by a software giant to another student, Pritesh Tripathi, from computer engineering branch. Over 52 percent students out of the eligible were selected in SVNIT’s campus placement even as global business and industries are adversely affected by Covid-19.
Like in 2020, this year too the entire placement process for the varsity was conducted online.
Daughter of a sweet shop owner from Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan, Sweety is the only person from her family who has been offered a handsome starting package. “Majority of my family members are in business. I am probably the only one to get such a good starting salary,” she said.
In 2020, out of 1,056 eligible students of Bachelor of Technology (B Tech), Master of Technology (M Tech) and Master of Science (M Sc), total 666 students were recruited. Whereas, this year 539 out of total 1,029 eligible students, had got placements.
“Last year around 60 percent students were recruited in campus placement while this year 52 percent students were recruited. A troubling condition were feared due to continuation of the global pandemic in second year; however, it is better and the situation is improving,” said Dr R A Christian, in-charge campus and placement.
Pritesh, who is from Ananthapur in Andhra Pradesh, is happy with the overall good placements in SVNIT. “Students were not expecting a good campus placement this year but the overall recruitments are good. We hope that the situation improves further,” he said.
