For this, a perceptual study was conducted among HR managers, recruitment firms and job boards. The companies/institutes were chosen carefully to ensure that the HR managers/professionals interviewed were involved with recruitment and had a fair idea about the market. Over 3000 MCA graduates who graduated in the year 2006 were interviewed across the six metros - Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai. And, after an exhaustive research and analysis, the lists of top Govt. /private institutes, across India and in each zone, were made out.
On this coveted ranking, the Chancellor of the University, Mr Ashok Mittal said: "We are very happy to note that fore-front IT bodies have identified the potentiality of the University by keeping it in first top 20 Institutes of the country. In fact, the credit of this ranking goes to our hardworking students who have placed themselves in the top companies like Infosys, HCL, TCS, Wipro & others, under the guidance of their teachers." Continuing he said: "Such rankings are helpful to both IT Organizations and students as from these they may go ahead easily for the Institute of their liking, preference and value." It is worth noticing that there is a great need of nearly 1.5 million MCA graduates in the Indian IT industry by next decade.
