Multinational companies provide pre-placement offers to students on the basis of summer internships.

The summer internships usually last for 2-3 months, after the end of the 6th semester of the BTech curriculum.
The companies test various aspects of the students during the internship period which include their analytical approach, mindset to work on the project given to them, documentation and presentation skills, etc. on the basis of which PPO is awarded to the interns.
So far this session, 61 students have received PPOs from 22 companies for different job profiles. Google (nine offers for SWE interns), Samsung (10 offers), and Service Now (six offers) are among the top recruiters. Twilio and Adobe are also on the list, along with four PPOs for software interns.
