Campus placement season is here and the news is that graduates from the top campuses in India, especially the IITs, have received six figure pay packets and job offers in the US. However, looking beyond the top 200 engineering schools in India, pay packets are not looking too promising. The reason is the emergence of new engineering schools in tier-2 and tier-3 cities in the last 10-15 years. A majority of them are producing hire-worthy graduates. However, their remote location often leads to few recruiters approaching these colleges, despite knowing it would mean missing out on brilliant talent. This upsets the demand-supply equation.
