However, securing job placement for all students is not a commitment that the course undertakes as getting a job, and more importantly, getting the right job has a lot to do with the opportunities available in the job market, the profile of the candidate and what specifically the employers are looking for. As a part of diploma, all students will be recommended for internship positions to the industry once the lectures and evaluations have been completed or even during the course if the opportunity arises and will additionally be assisted with job placements at the end of their course. On several occasions, the students have the opportunity of directly entering employment, in which case, the first four months of their employment are considered as internship to meet the credit hours for completing the diploma.
