CHENNAI:For what is believed to be the first time in India, four major IT companies have offered 6,064 jobs to a single institute — SRM University. They have set a new placement record on Day One. Assuring recruiters that SRM University will continue to maintain its number one status, founder chancellor Paarivendhar said that apart from constantly reviewing the syllabus to meet the demands of the market forces, the university kept in mind the talent and skill requirements of the industry. ”Placement is one part of university life. Grooming students to work in a multi-national company and being better citizens is the other part,” he said. The highest number of offers were from Wipro (1,641), TCS (1,611), Cognizant (1,506) and Infosys (1,306).
