Vishwakarma University (VU) is committed to providing student placements support, wider exposure, greater insights, and better practice to ensure that students are career-ready. The goal is to maximize students’ potential for life and livelihood.

Vishwakarma University provides assistance to interested candidates for meeting their career pathway goals with respect to entrepreneurship, competitive exams, and further studies. Considering the newer socio-economic realities, the students are encouraged to consider multiple pathways and select the best one for themselves.

In order to map student preferences, skill sets, and possible career pathways, the university conducts batch profiling exercises for all pre-final year students. This helps in providing the best possible training, mentoring, job opportunities, and other career advancement opportunities.

The Career Support Office at VU also facilitates job openings, job requirements, internship opportunities, and paid projects as part of the Campus Placement program for all final year students. Over the last couple of years, 800+ VU students have bagged Projects, Internships & long-duration industry Internships with companies including John Deere, Tech Mahindra, Tata BlueScope Steel, Pantaloons, Reliance Jio, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Eaton, and more.

With our network of 400+ active recruiters, collaborations, and industry connections, relevant profiles and job roles are made available to students.

Our unique initiatives in the form of Placement & Career Progression Assistance Programme (PCPAP) & Campus Placement Drives, are enabling students with finishing school training, hands-on learning experiences & online, offline, pool campus placements. We have also institutionalized a robust mechanism for students with other career progression aspirations including entrepreneurship (I-Qube Cell), higher education (International Relations Cell), competitive exams (Competitive Exams Guidance Cell), etc.

We firmly believe that a student's placement is a result of their aspirations, family expectations, the industry scenario, and the university-industry connect. The University has developed a Career Success Factors framework for the holistic development of the students with respect to Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude. It is appreciated that the employability enhancement is a continuous process and needs to start right from the commencement of the programme.

The University has invested in a well-equipped set-up for the industry connect team, high caliber staff, and evolved internal processes for exploring better job requirements. The team is mentored by the management, senior leadership, industry advisors, and seasoned academicians.

30+ Student Champions representing various programmes and 15+ Faculty Leaders representing various departments play a crucial role in internal coordination throughout the year.
