Some IITians are avoiding placements for startups and civil services

According to Mint, 10 to 15 students of IIT Madras have deferred placements.

Nikhil Pai is a chemical engineer who graduated from IIT Madras, is not going to sit for the placements along with the rest of his batch and instead work in a startup.

“I want to work in a startup that has 10-15 people, is into social innovation and I am talking to couple of such companies,” said by him.

“They are still too small to come to campuses and their salaries are nowhere close to what I would have got from placement but I need to take this step if I want to have my own startup in the future,” he included.

There is an increasing number of IIT graduates who are opting for startups or civil services.

“My family was initially worried, but I did not take this step in haste. I had decided at the end of my second year that I want to be part of business development and learn were the revenues come in from the start,” said Pai.

“Ten students have opted for the deferred placement facility of the institute. The deferred placement facility is available to those students who wish to set up a startup post their graduation,” said by IIT Delhi.

“The students choosing the deferred placement option can avail of placement services once within 2 years after availing this option, i.e. up to 2024-25 for the current set,” the college said in its placement report.

“A student can opt for deferred placement mainly for higher studies, UPSC exams and entrepreneurship. The number of students who opted for deferred placement last year was 11 and the same for this year is 20,” said Lalit Pandey, head, Centre for Career Development, IIT Guwahati.

It is evident that Engineering students are exploring other fields to excel which is a good thing according to me. Because, the IIT graduates are highly intelligent, it is better to explore other sectors as well other than technical ones.
