UoH student bags a package of Rs 43 lakh, highest in the varsity's history
The student who successfully bagged this salary package from Adobe Systems is V Nandini Soni. She talks about opting for Computer Science and participating in the Smart India Hackathon
V Nandini Soni, a student from University of Hyderabad (UoH), has bagged a salary package of Rs 43 lakh by the American software company Adobe Systems. This happened during the campus placements which was particularly for women students as a part of their empowering women under their 'Shecode' initiative.
"I knew I had to pursue my higher studies in Computer Science from the beginning and so dropped the idea of pursuing Engineering as I knew I couldn't do well in that field," said Nandini and added, "My team won the Smart India Hackathon, 2019, where I learnt a lot about teamwork and real-life application development."
Chairman, Placement Guidance and Advisory Bureau, Professor Rajeev Wankar said, "Our team is doing a wonderful job and this is evident by the increase in the number of placements for the students from all streams with decent packages. During 2019-20 more than 200 students have already been placed."
