I am second year M.tech student at IIT Kharagpur . Now it’s placements buzz in campus.
We finished few companies written tests this month. I wrote only for Qualcomm and Texas Instruments. Cv has been submitted to many companies and waiting with fingers crossed.
I just tell you something about written tests I gave. Qualcomm has three different categories of paper for three different profiles (Software, Digital Signal processing and VLSI profiles). I chose to write for VLSI as I am looking for a VLSI job profile and only one write VLSI other than VLSI specialization guys.Paper had very simple questions of electronics(GATE syllabus), aptitude and algorithms section which has most o questions on sorting algorithms. Aptitude had CAT type of questions(picture matching, venn diagram based questions so on..) and was easy too.
Texas instruments has Aptitude section common (45min paper) and one to choose between s/w and analog electronics(actually all GATE type questions Networks and Op amps important topics,control systems one simple question on second order system equation ..) . A good GATE ranker can easily make it and aptitude I found bit tough because of poor preparation otherwise easy only with bit of lengthy calculations to do. So need some practice which I lacked the most.
I am Visual Information and Embedded systems specialization student. We guys are so lucky this time that many companies which didn’t allow last year are enlightened about our specialization and are allowing us.
Now it’s all exams going on in campus so placements has taken a short break and will be starting again from Dec.1st . companies slots list is out now. We are eagerly waiting for those days when we say “I got placed..!!!!!”
I like to wish all my friends sitting for placements this time all the very best ..:) and with a great hope in myself..:)
Waiting for a dream opportunity in my way.. I wish it all goes well..
