    M.Sc.(IMCA) is a three years course, in which Semester VI is totally devoted for Industrial training. Here, students have to do project work in an IT company for the whole semester and present their work (demonstration) at the end of the semester. For placing these students in different companies, our department helps them to go through the selection process. Our PLACEMENT CELL conducts several mock tests, interviews and lecture sessions for students. We invite several industrial experts to give lectures and arrange several group discussion sessions for them.

    Placement activities are carried for our PG students. During their last semester, students have to work on an industrial project. Through this project they get placed in the same company or this experience helps them in obtaining a job in the industry. Here are the placement details of M. Sc. IMCA Part III students :
