The Placement Saga

Another Placement season. Another season of lucrative offers for some and heartbreak for others. Only this time around, there were a little too many heartbreaks. Far more than one associates with an institution like IIT Delhi . Despite 270 organisations offering nearly 400 job roles and 20 lavish international offers being tabled, the general feeling among the students, both the seniors and the juniors, is that of disappointment.

There was definitely a huge pressure on the placement season this year, considering heavy participation from 5th year dual and M.Tech students.

Senior Survey

 

It’s that time of the year again when we say our goodbyes, a lot of them indeed. Some to our batch-mates who would be graduating and even more to our beloved seniors. BSP took a survey of the graduating class of 2017 to find out, for perhaps the last time before they’re out into the world, how they reflect upon their last four to five years of their lives spent at IITD. The questions ranged from academics to extra-curricular activities, from relationship statuses to porn viewership, from food preferences to many more exciting indulgences. Read on to find out more about what the one that leaves has to say!

Deferred Placement Policy

IIT Delhi introduced the deferred placement policy this year, a step which was welcomed whole heartedly by the student community.

GSec Review

Well the title says it all, but for formality, this section covers the good, the bad and the ugly of the Student Heads of IIT Delhi’s various Boards. These boards form the mediators, the facilitators and arbitrator between the students and the administration. Another year, another semester but the same old General Secretaries. With half their tenure over, let us see how much they squirm under the microscope.
