IIT Goa Placements
Goa Campus has a dedicated placement cell to help students get placed in good jobs. The placement cell also provides students with interview skills and other essential skills to perform their best. Students get a chance to improve their communication skills, grooming session, presentation skills and much more. Since the institute has a lower student population, students get one-on-one attention to learn these skills.
