IIT Kharagpur attracts students through YouTube
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur started a campaign to solve student queries because seat allocation for engineering students commenced on June 30, under the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JoSAA).
They are trying to attract students through the help of a website and a YouTube channel, towards its exquisite placement records and academic environment. They are offering a campus tour video through the help of the YouTube channel. The video showcases that the overall view count has reached 23,000.
“Most students have the same question related to placement. Based on the past records, it’s evident that those who have maintained their academic score (CGPA) above 7.5 in any of the disciplines and participated in various extra-curricular activities at IIT Kharagpur, get an average salary in the range of 9-12 lakh per annum,” Atal Ashutosh Agarwal, the students Vice President of IIT Kharagpur, said.
Mr. Agarwal also mentioned that a good rank in the joint exam could help the students get a good department but a good placement would only depend on the CGPA score of the students. The first round of seat allocation for admissions to 87 institutes, including IITs, will begin on July 7 and the second round will be held on July 13
