    Doing integrated mtech cs from vit chennai or vellore is it good and how are the placements and salary

    Hello,

    About 85% to 90% of graduates from M.Tech (integrated) are hired by several product-based businesses. All students will receive internships from this course since, in the fourth year, numerous reputable firms visit our campus and employ students for 10-month internships. In those firms, almost 90% of the students receive PPOs. The likelihood of not getting an internship or PPO is less than 10%. VIT will advise you to come up with a different approach for joining service-based businesses.

    Except for a few, professors at VIT are excellent. They are all really helpful people that have excellent understanding of the topic. They constantly answer questions and are really helpful to us during an online semester. The course material is excellent. The M.Tech. (integrated) programme is structured so that you will be prepared for the workplace.

    Good Luck!!
