After nine gruelling rounds of technical tests, the student of Kongu Engineering College, Perundurai, has been offered a package of $92,000 per year. This pay package tops even that of IIT Madras, where the highest offer of $90,000 was made by German oilfield services provider Schlumberger last December.
