TKM College of Engineering Chairman, Dr.Shahal Hassan Musaliar, TKM Trust Treasurer, T. K. Jalaluddin Musaliar and TKM College join TKMCE Principal, Dr. T. A. Shahul Hameed in congratulating the students for their unmatched performance and the great laurels they have brought to the college.
‘Pandemic or not, nothing can stop us from achieving what is meant for us’ is what the outgoing students of TKMCE seem to be saying as TKMCE registered record placements this year despite the raging pandemic.
TKMCE final year students (2017-21) have secured 650+ job offers in 60 companies, enabling almost all the eligible students to get placed. This is 22% higher than previous year’s numbers despite the crippling impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic. Without doubt, this is a giant leap for the college.
None of this would have been possible without the hard work put in by our students, the powerful training imparted by the Career Guidance and Placement Unit of TKMCE headed by Dr. K.E. Reby Roy, and the strong network established with the companies.
The prime companies of our country and MNCs have repeatedly placed confidence in our students. Enhanced hiring was observed this year from both usual recruiters and a large number of new recruiters. Notable recruitments were seen in areas like Machine learning, AI, Data Analytics and Manufacturing. Clearly, the TKM campus has been one of the most preferred hiring destinations in Kerala for many of the top recruiters in the country this year. All eligible students of the circuit branches were offered at least one job. A few students aim to pursue higher studies in India/universities abroad, while some others want to attempt Civil Service as a future career option.
The number of students placed, the number of companies that visited, the maximum CTC offered, the highest average salary, etc. are all the highest ever in the history of TKMCE. There are even students who received up to five job offers. The highest CTC offered so far is 18 LPA by an MNC. A total of 77 students received offers worth more than 7 LPA.
The major recruiters who visited the campus this year were MRF, Analog Devices, Oracle, H & R, TCS, Infosys, Byjus, Cognizant, NISSAN, Wipro, Envestnet, SOTI, TISMO, South Indian Bank, Federal Bank, etc. to name a few. The average CTC offered this year is 4.5 LPA. This is a great achievement considering placements are still in progress for this batch of students and we are yet to announce the results of some companies that have already visited the campus.
TKMCE among 49 peer institutions pan India that bagged AICTE grant to set up IDEA Lab
TKMCE has found its place among the 49 institutions selected pan India to receive grants for setting up IDEA Labs on campus. This is as part of an innovative scheme from AICTE for establishing state of the art facilities in product making. Besides enhancing the visibility of the college, the achievement will make TKMCE a part of the IDEA Lab network (IDEALNET). Modern facilities will soon replace the traditional mechanical workshop. The total project cost is estimated at 82.48 lakh Indian Rupees, 50 percent of which will be funded by AICTE. The project will be implemented in two years.
