    Excellent news! Hopefully this would motivate more students to pick up Computers education in HP.

    Though same is not true for other private universities. They have mushroomed big time but are not able to place students.

    This may have happened for the first time in the history of this university. The IT school deserves kudos for their effort and the strong interface they could establish with the potential employers. Good work needs to be kept up.

    The other schools need to follow suit. The private universities should attempt to prove the point that they are just not shops for fleecing students but also deliver content.

    Dear Author,
    It was nice to see you covering the topic. However, please note that Sh. Dhirendra Sharma is not the head of UIIT but is the Training & Placement Coordinator. The head of UIIT is Dr. Raman Sharma, Director, UIIT.
