    Synopsis

    In 2020-21, about 78 percent of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)  Guwahati’s graduating BTechs landed jobs through the campus placement. This was a dip from the previous three years. Data obtained by Careers360 shows which branches of engineering had the highest placement rates and commanded the highest average salary packages. 

    Although established in 1994, decades after the first lot of Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) that came up in 1950’s and early 60’s, IIT Guwahati is still counted among the first generation IITs.

    Analysis of data obtained through provisions in the Right to Information Act (RTI) shows that IIT Guwahati maintained a placement rate of around 80% for its undergraduate engineering (BTech) and design (BDes) students for three years, 2018-2020.

    However, 2021 saw a downslide, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on education and industry.
