The selection process for Summer Placements starts after the first term for the first year students. The period of Summer Internship is normally from the beginning of June and July.
This process initiates from the first month of the last semester with the registration with VIPS-CPC for final placements. The process starts from January and usually continued till the month of June. Although recruitment through Pre-Placements Offers (PPO) happens till at least a fortnight before the Final Placements.
For each of these processes, the following procedure is adopted:
