In addition, IIT’s Software Engineering degree specifically provides with the appropriate skills for the majority of technical jobs in the software industry. IIT Graduates have today obtained higher positions in local blue chip and multinational companies and also in government bodies. They are frequently complimented on their professional approach to Software Engineering & Business Management. This is the esteem of the Institute and the confidence it had amongst employers” were the thoughts profiled by Nuwan Bandara, former student of IIT.
