New Delhi : Apple is finally coming to Indian campuses. In an unprecedented move, the tech giant has decided to participate in campus placement in Indian colleges. 

Hiring for its Hyderabad and Bengaluru facilities, Apple recruiters are reportedly looking for talent in AI, automation, data science and deep learning skills. 

The first college to get this great opportunity is International Institute of Information Technology-Hyderabad (IIIT-H).

About 350 BTech, MTech and MSc students have already registered for IIIT-H's placement session which will begin in December.

Apart from Apple, Google, Microsoft and Philips are among the top companies that have registered.

The college says students with knowledge of application-specific integrated circuit and 2D-3D graphic are likely to get placements.

IIIT-H is an autonomous university. It was founded in 1998. It was set up as a not-for-profit public private partnership (N-PPP) and is the first IIIT to be set up under this model in India. IIIT-H was set up as a research university focused on the core areas of Information Technology, such as Computer Science, Electronics and Communications, and their applications in other domains.

Last time, 116 companies registered for placement at the IIT-H and the college secured 100% placement. For Masters grads, average salaries ranged between Rs. 14-17.7LPA, and Rs. 13.4-18.8LPA for BTech grads. "Our students are among the most sought after by the technology/product industry."
