Default Enquiries on Project Management Route for Computer Science student

I'm on my final semester of university and has been starting to think about my first job. I'm actually interested to be a IT project manager in the future but was wondering whether there's any company that allows me to "fast-track" or nurture me into one with a clear career path set up. Will a consulting/vendor company such as NCS or CrimsonLogic be a good choice to achieve what I want? I'm open to hear any suggestion with regards to the possible route I can take to become one.

FYI: I'm mainly doing software engineer now during all my internships due to my course, however I'm open to do more non-technical roles like business analyst.

You will be better off learning the ropes from end to end cycle rather than go straight to PM work.

Sounds like you are weak technically.
if you have robust coding abilities, actually i dont encourage ncs, crimson logic for first job.

Very mediocre. I work with them. The project managers some times dont know what they are doing.

However, if your technical skills are weak. Actually it is a right fit.

It depends on teams. Some are great actually. Either way, shouldnt jump into project management. Should work a bit on the ground first. Will help with subsequent implementation.

I dont really consider myself having weak technical skills, kind of above average. Is there any companies you would recommend? I prefer working more towards the IT consulting and tech industry.

I chose the both of them due to
1. Their nature of having some of their development teams in the local environment.

2. Having a more technical-focused graduate programme, hopefully getting a project manager role and leave for a better company

Would climbing the software engineering route (E.g. software engineer to lead software engineer) then project manager would be a good idea?

With regards to my skillsets, I prefer application development (both frontend and backend) as compared to data science, AI etc.
