Yes, students pursuing Computer Science Engineering with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (CSE AI&ML) are indeed eligible to participate in company placements alongside their peers from Computer Science Engineering (CSE) and Information Science Engineering (ISE). This is because CSE forms the foundational basis for specializations like Artificial Engineering and Machine Learning. However, it’s important to note that these specialized fields are still evolving and may not be as widely recognized as core Computer Science Engineering.
In terms of placement statistics, the first batch of AIML students saw an impressive 92% placement rate. The salary packages offered ranged from 3 LPA to 35 LPA, with an average package of around 5.5 LPA. Top companies such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Cognizant were among the recruiters.
However, during the placement process, if two candidates possess identical skills, grades, and levels, preference might be given to the candidate from the core branch. Therefore, while CSE AI&ML students can participate in placements, they might face slightly more competition compared to their CSE and ISE counterparts.
