CDAC - All you need to know about [FAQ]

Hello guys,

There's pretty buzz going there regarding the CDAC since the result came out. People are asking questions which are pretty much same and asked over and over a lot of time. Here, I will try to answer some of these questions.

When is the exam held?
The CCAT is held twice per year. One for August batch and another for February batch. The notification of the same is made on their website and newspapers.

How to apply for CCAT? What is the fee structure? How to prepare for exam?
Answer to every of your question can be found here -> https://cdac.in/index.aspx?id=edu_acts_PGDAdmissionBooklet

Which are the good centers?
1. CDAC ACTS, Pune
2. CDAC ACTS, Bangalore
3. CDAC ACTS, Hyderabad
4. Sunbeam, Pune

That's all I know about. Other institutes I don't have much of an idea.

Which course should I choose?
Seriously? You should ask that question to yourselves. Please don't do like, give exam, get qualified and think, which course should I go. The worst choice you would ever ask is DAC vs. VSLI. They are so different in their nature. If you're not sure about your choice, I am no one to suggest anything.

Here's the link to all the courses -> https://cdac.in/index.aspx?id=pgdiploma
Go to each of the course you think sounds interesting to you. Click it. Go to modules section which should give you the exact topics you'll be taught. Check it to see if its really something which you're expecting.

What should I expect from CDAC?
It'll take out every last drop of your juice. If,
You're passionate about the field.
You like to work whenever given a chance.
You can work for 13 hours straight.
You don't differentiate between Sunday and Monday.

then CDAC is definitely for you.

Provided you satisfy all the above points, choose any course and definitely you're placed. If you're a person from the above category, hell, one chance is enough for you and believe me, that's the least you could expect.

But if it happens that you're not enjoying, life will be hell.

Imma wearing my cool jeans/mini skirt at the classes. \m/
That's not happening. Most of the institutes have dress codes which is generally formals, sometimes with Tie. Though there's no standard uniform and the dress code totally depends on institute.

Is there any value to CDAC's Diploma?
It definitely worth more than your XYZ institute diploma. CDAC is pretty old institute and is very reputed.

Enough of your bullshit, tell me about the placement.
Alright, here we go. I'll first list the courses and their placement records.

1. DAC - Extremely High
2. WiMC - High
3. DESD - Moderate
4. VLSI - Low
5. DITISS - Low
6. Others - Never heard any company for them this time.

The placement activity is common per region. For eg. If you belong to Pune region, all the institutes from Pune will take part in the activity. That doesn't mean every person is coming to compete. Each company prepares a shortlist which will include students from all centers in Pune, Mumbai and Nagpur. The institutes may call companies on their will for their own but overall, any company comes you'll be able to compete irrespective of the centers provided you qualify the criteria.

The placement notification may come at midnight 12 am which asks you to be present at 8 am sharp on the same day. You have to become ninja for first month and remain alert.

The shortlisting criteria is generally unknown to the students and is pretty mysterious. Sometimes, the shortlist would just not make any sense but you've to accept it.

What kind of packages are we talking about?
Packages, they differ. At start, the companies gives package ranging from 2.7-4.5 LPA (this time stats).The companies visiting at later point of time, towards the end offers ridiculous packages like 1.2 LPA.

I've "just" 70%. What shoud I do? 😔
Well, enough! Lol. At least if you're coming to Maharashtra region's CDAC, 60% is all what you need to be eligible for most of the companies. And 70% is not "just" here. How the hell did you score that much anyway?

I've less than 60% in my 10th/12th/B.E./B.Tech. What about me?
You're in trouble bro. While courses like DAC & WiMC would still get you enough opportunities (more than your college did), you should not expect much from other courses. Besides, you need to get some good grades in CDAC exam to increase your chance. And if you've any hard bound that you'll only work in MNC's from the very first day of your career then better drop it. It's not gonna happen. You'll mostly be ineligible for MNC's.

I've X years of gap. Will it matter?
If the gap is 1 year, then no, it won't matter much. However, if you've a bigger gap you must have a valid reason for it. If you were working, it'll work but few companies just want freshers. On the other hands, there are few companies like SanDisk which prefer to take experienced people. However, you must note that no extra benefits will be given if you're experienced. You'll be given the same package as the other fresher.

So yeah, gap does matter. A small gap is fine but if you've 2+ years of gap then there might be chances that you'll not be eligible for few companies. Most of them don't care about it though but big names surely does.

I am selected in XYZ course. What preparation I should do before joining the classes?
Generally speaking, you don't need any preparation. However, I am assuming you're thorough with basics taught in engineering. Rest be assured, they will start from very basics but don't expect them to give very much time on it.

I hope I covered many questions. If you think something more can be added, drop in here...

Also, I don't claim this to be 100% accurate but its just here to give a rough idea about the scenario at CDAC. The information I've provided may be inaccurate or completely wrong but those are just from my experience and research I did before joining.

If you think any of the information is not correct, please inform me.

Best Regards.

1. What about exams (Theory & practicals), how many & oftenly we have to appear. Anything to keep in mind or to make mind set before joining the course. Does the Diploma result interlinked with student's throughout performance or just performing in exams would suffice.

2. Is there any regulation regarding attendance or taking leave(in case of urgency), does the course flow suffer.



#. Any suggestions/precaution that you feel like sharing.

There's a final end module exam which makes up your diploma. It's conducted at the end of the course. You can except surprise test every now and then though. There are internal marks and they haven't disclosed the criteria for the same. So you just have to be careful with every step no matter how small it appears.

Regarding the attendance, they ask for 100% attendance. However, you may take 3 leaves throughout your course provided you submit the leave application prior to taking leave and get it approved. Oh god, you ask them for leave and they will react like you asked them for their kidney. Throughout the course we were threatened that if we take leave the consequences will be visible during placement. For this reason, no one took much of unplanned leave and its unknown if they really keep up with their words of showing consequences.
However those who did, they used to bash them pretty hard.

You're 5 mins late, congrats, you cannot attend the class. You come to next lecture and the coordinator will take you and bash you. Class starts at 7:30, you're supposed to be in class latest by 7:25. I mean, they have a right to scold you if you come at like 7:28. They did it.

This is all scenario at Acts Pune. Don't know if others have same strictness.

congratulation. for pune acts for dvlsi.

i cant say about dass min. rank but if you have secured seat in pune acts for dvlsi, you may get seat in dass ..

because DESD,DAC,DVLSI,DIVSED are the course which filled first amongst rankers for pune acts, bangalore (e-city), bangalore (k.p), hydrabad acts.

So., for more clear idea. you can call on c-dac-pune help desk numbers, they may tell you for seat regarding your rank..

To be honest. i forgot write or save my result. so cant tell about my rank.

And I am ECE student. So I prefer DIVSED,DVLSI, DESD. But you've asked for your branch, I think it will be same DIVSED,DVLSI,DESD, as i think this are full electronics core courses ( if you wanted to be in core field. ). currently no course are there for electrical core....

Also this courses are with good placement records and have rep. and pune acts, c-dac hydrabad, sunbeam pune, bangalore (e-city), bangalore (kp) are amongst top for this courses. ( As in my search i got this results. )

My brief background.

2. Currently working in IT operations (in infrastructure support: monitoring network/servers and all)

From quite some time I have been looking for information on DITISS. My Questions:
1. I am apprehensive about the placement after completion of the course.
2. Currently, say if my pakg is 3 LPA; what should I expect out of DITISS?
3. Which intake is preferred; Feb/Aug?
4. Can you provide me some more crucial details about the same?

Thanks,

I am in DVLSI. The course and the training is good but be ready for hectic schedules. About the placement in core, it always depends on how much you can grasp and present in interview. Companies of core do come but the number is quite less compared to that of IT companies.

I am ready take out every last drop of your juice. If,
I am passionate about the field.
I like to work whenever given a chance.
I can work for 13 hours straight.
I don't differentiate between Sunday and Monday.
Is still 60% will be a problem ? because the problem is my marks in +2,which is 58%.
Everything else is fine :-63% in B.Tech.,73% in 10th.
Please Reply i am really thinking about it ,and i am going to opt b/w Dac or Wimc
You'll get enough chances. But may have to start slow. Might not get chance in MNC.

aslijatinasija
i think 59.6 =60% so i don't think there should be any problem
It's not! 59.99 = 59.99%
They will calculate this on the registration day. They will calculate it in front of you and if you've rounded the things and whatever, be prepared for pre-course scoldings. So don't round off. Write it with full accuracy.

i have 59.6 aggregate in BE. i got cdac pune. does i have chance for placement. how many chances can i get.
Same answers applies to you as the above guy.

sam041288
i am BE (Electrical & Electronics) passed out 61.1% with 4 years of working experience as service engineer and i am thinking of doing a '"PG Diploma in Automation SCADA Systems (PG-DASS) or PG Diploma in IT Infrastructure, Systems and Security (PG-DITISS) " course from CDAC , do you think after that there will be any chance of getting placed in companies. I mean is it worth risking Rs. 89,000/- 😐
I doubt PG-DASS have any placements. I've mentioned about it in the first post. Kindly read it.


To all: Most of the questions you're asking has already been answered in the first post. Patience is the key. Hold your horses and completely read the first post before posting a question.

Also, I'll once again request not make this thread a "I got xyz rank. Which center I'll get". This thread is not meant for that.

As far as I know, you need min. 55% in your degree to take the DESD course from CDAC. Sorry mate, I doubt you can take the course.

Also many people say that desd course has more placements than other all courses in pune,banglore,hyderabad so when u said dac course has extremely high placement and desd has moderate it puts me in confusion....

1) Depends on which college you're from. However, the packages are pretty much same like engineering college.
2) 55% aggregate in whatever makes your degree. In my case, it was 3rd and 4th year, some places its all 4 years. In some places, its just final year.
3) DESD have placements but I still stand that DAC have the most placement. I've seen it from my own eyes. In the initial 15 days, there were on an average 2 companies per day. Some days, there were like 4 companies in a single day. People would write test for one and go to another right away. However, there are many companies with requirements which are common for DESD and DAC. My friend (who stays with me) just finished his DESD from Bangalore and got placed.

No Need to worry ,It's been a month and half i completed my CDAC ,and till now there are 10-15 companies who recruit on basis of Btech. or CDAC marks,and you also have very good marks in Btech. and Mtech. which will be a great plus point.

Hello all..
Please grab some time and sit back to read it and please guide me.Let me start it from the very beginning.After my schooling from Delhi in which i was a good performer,(10th--81% and 12th--72%) I pursued B.Sc. (Hons.) Electronics(59.93%--only left with one mark to complete 60%) from Delhi University and after that M.Sc. Electronics(74.3%) in 2015 and then i did PG-Diploma in Embedded Systems Design from CDAC,Bangalore in aug2015 batch. Now after completing it even after being a good performer throughout the course as well as 2015 pass-out I am not at all getting chances in the campus placements as i am from M.Sc. background.Though,I don't understand the logic why they people gave me the admission if they can't provide me the placement, I need a solution now. I want to focus on the solution part instead of cursing them. I am hell frustrated about this thing now and want to get a job in embedded domain or something else.Keeping in my mind the financially weak family situations should i join some tech. support or bpo? or should i keep trying for the off campus jobs in which most of them even don't give me a call as they require experienced candidates.Please help. thank you.

Hello guys,

There's pretty buzz going there regarding the CDAC since the result came out. People are asking questions which are pretty much same and asked over and over a lot of time. Here, I will try to answer some of these questions.

When is the exam held?
The CCAT is held twice per year. One for August batch and another for February batch. The notification of the same is made on their website and newspapers.

How to apply for CCAT? What is the fee structure? How to prepare for exam?
Answer to every of your question can be found here -> PGDAdmissionBooklet

Which are the good centers?
1. CDAC ACTS, Pune
2. CDAC ACTS, Bangalore
3. CDAC ACTS, Hyderabad
4. Sunbeam, Pune

That's all I know about. Other institutes I don't have much of an idea.

Which course should I choose?
Seriously? You should ask that question to yourselves. Please don't do like, give exam, get qualified and think, which course should I go. The worst choice you would ever ask is DAC vs. VSLI. They are so different in their nature. If you're not sure about your choice, I am no one to suggest anything.

Here's the link to all the courses -> Post Graduate Diploma
Go to each of the course you think sounds interesting to you. Click it. Go to modules section which should give you the exact topics you'll be taught. Check it to see if its really something which you're expecting.

What should I expect from CDAC?
It'll take out every last drop of your juice. If,
You're passionate about the field.
You like to work whenever given a chance.
You can work for 13 hours straight.
You don't differentiate between Sunday and Monday.

then CDAC is definitely for you.

Provided you satisfy all the above points, choose any course and definitely you're placed. If you're a person from the above category, hell, one chance is enough for you and believe me, that's the least you could expect.

But if it happens that you're not enjoying, life will be hell.

Imma wearing my cool jeans/mini skirt at the classes. \m/
That's not happening. Most of the institutes have dress codes which is generally formals, sometimes with Tie. Though there's no standard uniform and the dress code totally depends on institute.

Is there any value to CDAC's Diploma?
It definitely worth more than your XYZ institute diploma. CDAC is pretty old institute and is very reputed.

Enough of your bullshit, tell me about the placement.
Alright, here we go. I'll first list the courses and their placement records.

1. DAC - Extremely High
2. WiMC - High
3. DESD - Moderate
4. VLSI - Low
5. DITISS - Low
6. Others - Never heard any company for them this time.

The placement activity is common per region. For eg. If you belong to Pune region, all the institutes from Pune will take part in the activity. That doesn't mean every person is coming to compete. Each company prepares a shortlist which will include students from all centers in Pune, Mumbai and Nagpur. The institutes may call companies on their will for their own but overall, any company comes you'll be able to compete irrespective of the centers provided you qualify the criteria.

The placement notification may come at midnight 12 am which asks you to be present at 8 am sharp on the same day. You have to become ninja for first month and remain alert.

The shortlisting criteria is generally unknown to the students and is pretty mysterious. Sometimes, the shortlist would just not make any sense but you've to accept it.

What kind of packages are we talking about?
Packages, they differ. At start, the companies gives package ranging from 2.7-4.5 LPA (this time stats).The companies visiting at later point of time, towards the end offers ridiculous packages like 1.2 LPA.

I've "just" 70%. What shoud I do? 😔
Well, enough! Lol. At least if you're coming to Maharashtra region's CDAC, 60% is all what you need to be eligible for most of the companies. And 70% is not "just" here. How the hell did you score that much anyway?

I've less than 60% in my 10th/12th/B.E./B.Tech. What about me?
You're in trouble bro. While courses like DAC & WiMC would still get you enough opportunities (more than your college did), you should not expect much from other courses. Besides, you need to get some good grades in CDAC exam to increase your chance. And if you've any hard bound that you'll only work in MNC's from the very first day of your career then better drop it. It's not gonna happen. You'll mostly be ineligible for MNC's.

I've X years of gap. Will it matter?
If the gap is 1 year, then no, it won't matter much. However, if you've a bigger gap you must have a valid reason for it. If you were working, it'll work but few companies just want freshers. On the other hands, there are few companies like SanDisk which prefer to take experienced people. However, you must note that no extra benefits will be given if you're experienced. You'll be given the same package as the other fresher.

So yeah, gap does matter. A small gap is fine but if you've 2+ years of gap then there might be chances that you'll not be eligible for few companies. Most of them don't care about it though but big names surely does.

I am selected in XYZ course. What preparation I should do before joining the classes?
Generally speaking, you don't need any preparation. However, I am assuming you're thorough with basics taught in engineering. Rest be assured, they will start from very basics but don't expect them to give very much time on it.

I hope I covered many questions. If you think something more can be added, drop in here...

Also, I don't claim this to be 100% accurate but its just here to give a rough idea about the scenario at CDAC. The information I've provided may be inaccurate or completely wrong but those are just from my experience and research I did before joining.

If you think any of the information is not correct, please inform me.

Best Regards.

Why was there a gap?
I did in Feb and it was fine. Many companies had visited at that time. But times are changing, people getting Pune ACTS at 2000'ish ranks which doesn't look good. But I think still there will be many companies. You should get more than 5 chances which is quite sufficient.

In my time, more than 80 companies has visited out of which around 55-60 was for DAC and WiMC. Bigger MNC (which visits very less) generally put such gap criteria. Smaller companies generally don't put such criteria. Despite, as I mentioned in the original post, the criteria is not disclosed so its a mere speculation and deduction based on the parameters of the selected students vs. who didn't get select.

I did in 2013. The job I got from CDAC was at a very small startup. Since then, I already changed 2 jobs. Currently working with a leading Networking MNC...😉

There's no 100% placement even in MIT or Stanford. Anyone who claims 100% placement is lying. Period.
CDAC can bring 10,000 companies but if the candidate itself is incompetent, there's nothing CDAC or anyone else can do. Contrary, if the candidate is competent, a single company would be sufficient. All CDAC or anyone or any other institute can give is 100% placement ASSISTANCE. This means they will arrange you at least 1 interview.

You should do it as early as possible if you're thinking of doing it because you already have a gap and you shouldn't waste another 6 months. It doesn't really make a huge difference if you do in Feb or August. Also make sure you're thorough with course contents. Again, there is no placement guarantee. So think everything before you go for it.
