      Skill Tips
      They weren’t looking for any particular course or project. Short listing was purely based on the written test.In recruiting process projects do matter a lot. My suggestion is it is better to do 2 or 3 good projects apart from regular course projects. For companies that go through resume based short listing, projects are very important. Make use of summer and winter holidays for doing projects.

      General Tips
      They weren’t looking for any particular course or project. Short listing was purely based on the written test.And I think I got selected because I expressed my interest in structural engineering and convinced the

      interviewer, even though my specialization was Infrastructural Engg. I showed all the courses I did in structural engineering and explained my DDP, which is also related to structural engineering.I targeted companies with structural engineering (core) profile. I didn’t do any separate preparation for placements. But, I was doing some courses in structural engineering that semester, so I was in touch with all the concepts.
      Motivation for applying
      Applied to: SVINT Engineering Pvt Ltd, W.S.Atkins India Pvt Ltd, Arup India Pvt Ltd.SVINT isn’t a good company. In TCE, even though the package is less, standards are good. Arup focused only on HR interview (for an hour) and nothing technical.
