Apple comes to Indian engineering institute for placements for first time

The biggest companies in the world recruit Indian engineers and IT professionals but not all of them come to India for placements; for instance American multinational technology company Apple. Breaking this pattern, the tech giant is coming to International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) for recruitments.

According to a report, TV Devi Prasad, head of placements, IIIT, said that as of now, they are not sure what kind of profiles Apple Inc will be offering them, Times of India was quoted as saying. Prasad said that this will enable the students to showcase their skills before the firm.
"The requirement for hardware engineers is high this year with many companies looking forward to hiring students with knowledge in the application-specific integrated circuit and design verification. There is also high demand for students who have knowledge into a 2D-3D graphic in mobile communication," said Prasad.

According to reports, 350 students across BTech, MTech and MSc research have registered for the placement drive. Not only Apple, Microsoft, Google and Philips have also registered with IIIT-H for placements.

The placement drive will take place in December.
