Predicting College placements based on academic performance is critical to supporting educational institutions and students in making informed decisions about future career paths. The present research investigates the use of Machine Learning (ML) algorithms to predict college students' placements using academic performance data. The study makes use of a dataset that includes a variety of academic markers, such as grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities, obtained from a varied sample of college students. To create predictive models, the study analyses numerous ML algorithms, including Logistic Regression, Gaussian Naive Bayes, Random Forest, Support Vector Machine, and K-Nearest Neighbour. The predictive models are evaluated using performance criteria such as accuracy, precision, recall, and F1-score. The most effective machine learning method for forecasting students' placements based on academic achievement is identified through a comparative study. The findings show that Random Forest approaches have the potential to effectively forecast college student placements. The findings show that academic factors such as grades and test scores have a considerable impact on prediction accuracy. The findings of this study could be beneficial to educational institutions, students, and career counsellors.

Fixed Cluster Formations with Nearest Cluster Heads in Wsns

By Korhan Cengiz

DOI: https://doi.org/10.5815/ijwmt.2017.03.01, Pub. Date: 8 May 2017

The limited battery usage of a sensor node is one of the significant issues in WSNs. Therefore, extending the lifetime of WSNs through energy efficient mechanisms has become a challenging research area. Previous studies have shown that clustering can decrease the transmission distance of the sensor nodes thus, prolongs the lifetime of the network. In literature, most of the LEACH variants aim to set-up clusters in each round by changing CHs randomly. These formations cause to spend high amount of energy and induce additional network costs. In this paper, an energy-efficient nearest constant clustering approach is proposed to solve the problems of LEACH based protocols. The proposed approach uses constant clusters which are formed only once when algorithm starts. The cluster formation remains fixed until the energies of the all sensors are finished. Proposed approach aims to select nearest CHs in each cluster randomly without changing the cluster formations.
