Nirmal Ganesh Manoharan, final year student of Computer Science Engineering has been placed with Works Applications, the No: 1 ERP solution in Japan. Works Applications has its headquarters in Japan and they come for campus recruitment only to select IIT campuses and very few Universities in India. “SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) is very fortunate that we are able to meet their requirements and they continue to come to SRM year after year for recruitment,” said Mr. Ganapathy, Dean, Placements, SRM. He recalled that even last year a computer science engineering graduate student was selected.
Nirmal Ganesh Manoharan said that the process was tough and he added that his nine week summer internship training with Microsoft has helped him a lot. The process started with a pre-placement talk and then a programming assignment consisting of three questions was given to students. Nirmal completed his assignment successfully and then he was called for the next level that included online coding tests and personal interview.
It is to be noted that Nirmal has been placed with the highest salary package of Rs. 32 lakhs and when asked to share his advice to the fellow students, he says, “Instead of trying to learn all the programming languages, it is better to try and master one. Knowledge on Data structure concepts and algorithms is indeed an added advantage.” He said he learnt problem solving ability, real life industry conditions during his internship training in Hyderabad with Microsoft. He thanked SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) for the freedom given to pursue his interests.
