Speaking on the offers, CS Shankar Ram, advisor (training and placement), IIT-Madras, said the “internship process provides a good opportunity for companies to evaluate our students who intern with them over an extended period of time". 

"It also helps our students to learn more about the company, the roles that they may be offered and potential career prospects," he added. PPOs are a natural outcome of this interaction that is a win-win for both companies and students, he said.

Ram confirmed that the number of pre-placement offers received in the ongoing academic year 2021-2022 is the highest in the institute till date.
