Around 600 students participated in the written round. Out of these students, 150 students were shortlisted for the technical interview.
Questions are asked to measure your grasp of basics of various subjects. Micro-controllers, C and C++ Programming Concepts (like Pointers, Structures, Classes), Analog Electronics (Transistor Basics), Digital Circuit Theory (Basics of MUX, DEMUX, ENCODER, DECODER).
The selection also depends on the manner in which a student approaches a question.
Questions are asked on the projects carried out by the candidate, hobbies and achievements.
Out of 150 candidates who participated in this round, 75 were shortlisted for the next round.

Final Selection: A total of 50 people (EC: 25, EEE: 8, TE: 3, IS and CS: 8, ME: 6) were selected for the job.
NOTE: Very few core jobs are on offer. Software companies are not looking at engineers from core branches. All this makes this offer a coveted prize.
Even if you are one among the best engineers in the country, it is very difficult to land up a deserving job offer. Patience is a key.
BOSCH is one of the very few companies that is not biased on any aspect and does not look for references. True talent is valued in the company.
All the best and give it your best shot!
