    How much average package after B.Tech from IIPE Vishakapatnam?


    The placement statistics for IIPE Vishakapatnam are as follows:

    According to peer reviews, nearly all Oil PSUs visit the college during placement drive, they take around 10% of the students from chemical engineering batch. Private companies like Schlumberger, TCS, Adani gas, L and T, SHELL, Coromandel, Aurobindo, some start-ups, etc. takes 70% of students.

    Being an institution that is mainly focused on the petrochemical industry, it is assumed that internships would be limited to only the petrochemical organisations such as HPCL etc. But surprisingly there are a wide variety of organisations to choose from. For petroleum engineering students, got internships from many top PSUs like GAIL, ONGC, OIL, HPCL and as far as the feedback from the petroleum students is concerned, the internships went satisfactory.

    However, there are no placement statistics available on the official website.

    Good Luck

    which is better to study in IIPE Visakhapatnam, chemical engineering or petroleum engineering, on the basis of expected average packages and toughness of them to study ?

    Hey Kaushik,

    IIPE is a government college in which admission in B.Tech programmes is done through JEE ADVANCED exam. For being able to register for admission, you have to qualify JEE Main first. Talking about better stream, I would recommend Petroleum steam is better and the cut-off for Petroleum branch is also higher than Chemical engineering cut-off. So, if you get an opportunity for both, you should consider Petroleum first.

    Hope you have found the relevant answer to your question!!
