Placement Assistance is provided to those students who wish to take up job after successfully completing their course. Structure of DEP Placement Cell consists of a Central Coordinator (Distance Education Placement) at DEI-DEP Head Office and a suitable administrative structure with a Training & Placement Officer (TPO) at every Information Centre. For all the technical programmes, teams of experts having domain knowledge and understanding of the specific Industry are deputed to support the TPOs in each Region/ Zone.
Job Fairs are conducted at some of these locations. Student from nearby Information Centres are invited to attend interview at the Job Fair where 20 to 40 companies visit and conduct interviews, just as they do at campus and hire large number of students. Students also get a chance to appear in multiple interviews if they do not qualify in one company.(Every year 5 to 7 Job Fairs are being organized at different locations and approximately 600 students are offered jobs close to their hometowns.)
Short term modular programmes enhance placement opportunities.
