Wipro Technologies ( info from Google Finance ) became the first company to recruit students from the current Semester 6 batch of Model Engineering College. Wipro selected 75 students ( 13 to VLSI and the rest to the software division ) in all. The selection process started off with a test in the morning of the 20th. This was followed by technical interviews. Those who cleared the technical interviews were asked to attend the HR interviews. A few ( 18, I believe ) of the HR interviews were conducted on the 21st. The number of selected students are more than last years intake of about 60 from MEC. Clearly the software industry is still riding on a boom and MEC students are as good as ever.
