Even if you have plans to go abroad, go ahead, learn, earn and return to serve your motherland”. He further informed that a world class institute could be built only with world class teachers; you should not forget your alma-matter. Currently we have MOU with various Institutions in USA and more than 100 students have inferned in the USA. Placements in PES is an integral activity and we believe in working hard to see all our students get jobs. The placements has been always a PES priority. The placement initiatives are fetching good number of high-salary jobs. Many corporate IT industries visit our campus and recruit our graduates; I am sure most of you are also beneficiaries. I should also request at this juncture that as alumni you could think of helping in your institute. It will be a great welcome gesture and a service you could provide. Many great institutions have received and are receiving such support particularly in USA. Giving away to alma-mater is a great fulfilling service.
