College Infrastructure
Calcutta institute of engineering and management have all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments. The college have many labs which are well maintained. There are two canteens which provide clean and hygienic food.
Academics
I am studying b. tech electronics and communication as i opted it in the counseling sessions. The syllabus contains each and every subject and is very helpful for the future. This college is under the affiliation of makaut.
Placements
Placement from the past few years are not quite appreciable. However the students with higher cgpa's and marks get placed at good places. But there are many who get placed in the off campusing. But this college never guarantees the placement
Value-for-money
As there are less placement i would say that it is not value for money. U may or may not get jobs after your graduation. The computer labs must get upgraded as the computers and its parts are of ancient history and can be sold as antique items.
Campus Life
The college campus is great it got a play ground where everyone plays cricket, football,etc. There is a common room for indoor games like table tennis. And the two canteens where you get everything.

College Infrastructure
No ..no proper lab infrastructure . Classrooms are good.. faculties are not.. worst infrastructure an engineering college can have. Computer labs are the worst.most of the computers don't work.n the faculties..hats of.this was the worst decision of my life
Academics
Extremely poor facilities.there used to be autocad in our course in 3rd year..and there was only 1 faculty who used to take our class..and he knew nothing about autocad.he cud only only make circles squares ..nothing else..n in the entire 6 months he took 2-3 classes
Placements
90 % are fake campusing..and they used to say 85% percent placement..no placement for CE . I got 4 jobs offers in my final year..2 were it jobs..and 2 were core CE jobs.i got joining from the it ones only.later we found out no such Core companies used to exist.
Value-for-money
Absolutely not
Campus Life
Not dat good.

College Infrastructure
Our college infrastructure is good. There is huge area and students really enjoy their. Out canteen is also moderately good equipped with furniture and eatable things. There is a playground too where different games are held.
Academics
Moderately good. Professors are polite and erudite. Proper notes are given. We get daily tasks and curriculum is updated. I'm studying BBA itself there and the quality of teaching by some professors are quite good.
Placements
They offer placements good companies coming in as per I know. Regarding placements recently there were some chaos but I think it's now cleared. It's quite vague and am not so sure about the salary package.
Value-for-money
Yes it is. I'm from BBA department and each semester fee is 29000 rupees. I think it's worth the money but they should also check upon students needs and necessary accessories regarding study. Library must be upgraded.
Campus Life
Quite good. Fest are held. People enjoy. Teacher are good.......... Location is easily locatable and metro is near only. Overall it's good but some features should be enhanced for students interest in it
Anything Else
My experience with this college is bitter sweet. The college is okayish. Fee structure is reasonable. Campus life should be a bit good or else student lack interest. It's okay to get admitted in this college.

This college offers course on b.tech,bba,bca and mba,b.tech being the most popular one. The location is easily communicable. CIEM is a govt. aided college with average faculty members. Though on campussing scope is really very less but with potential in students off campussing jobs can be X definitely tried. Classes are regular and the environment is student friendly with a huge playground and canteen area for students to kill time in free time.

Great location, various transport availability, great environment and a friendly neighborhood. This college has a great campus though comparatively small but has a nice ground and canteen. The Annual Fest of this college i.e, CELSIUS is one of the biggest attraction of the college. Along with Sports Club which consists of Cricket and Football teams there are Drama and Dance Clubs. Multiple workshops and seminars are conducted by management and faculty along with various companies and institutes. Job opportunities are fewer but some good companies come to CIEM for recruitment. All in all a great place to do you Bachelor's if you are an average or above average student.

CIEM is a place where you will never be helpless. Be it the seniors or the faculty, they are always ready to help. Building you career is and has to be a major priority but you will meet lots of people and learn new things. You will not just be bound by your books. You will have various opportunities to explore and increase your knowledge in your field and beyond. You will also get plenty of opportunities to widen and culture you areas of excellence. If you ever have any complaints (which I should add there are very rare chances that you might ), you can always contact just about anyone and the case will be resolved with care and support. There is also a strong anti ragging body in our campus, so if you are a newbie reading this, know it that you have nothing to fear. You can just freely walk to any place without any potential introductory fear.Talking about the studies, whenever you have any doubts about anything you can always contact the concerned teacher and they will definitely make sure your doubts are cleared. In short, CIEM is a package deal you will not regret. Have the time of your life while you pave your path to your goal. Work hard and also have fun. Keep smiling

The infrastructure of this college is not as expected. The faculty is good and helpful. College life is pretty nice. The college is big and has nice rooms. The labs are furnished and spacious. Transport to the college is good as it is near to the main road. Overall it is good.

Infrastructure was simple, faculty was good, placement facility is good only for IT students. Overall a average college with average facilities. I would recommend this college to other if they want to study computer science,IT or electrical. For core engineers their is no hope for placement. Otherwise faculty was good. And rules and regulations was also tough.

As far as education is concerned, the CE department has some very qualified and experienced teachers who are dedicated. Though the laboratories miss some of the instruments, it must be kept in mind that unlike other streams where a computer would suffice most of the curriculum in other streams, instruments required in CE labs are extremely costly. The library provides the students with most of the books that we require during the four years. What attracts students to this college is the yearly college fest 'celcius' which definitely raises the temperature of the college. It is a culmination of technical and cultural events and the student association tries to bring famous personalities and bands to join the festivities. Sunburn, Indian ocean, Agnee, Papon, Anupam Roy, Aditi Kakkar, Underground authority and many more have been part of our fest. All in all, it's the best that you can expect from a private university.

The location of the college is great. The infrastructure of college is good. The faculty of the college is one of the best in the country. The placements are degrading year year by year, and the TPO is pathetic with no proper experience. The college has ample greenery. It also has enough free space to develop extracurricular activities.

The college is located in one of the prime locations of Kolkata, with the metro service very nearby. The campus is very good.It is not a residential campus. It has highly qualified and amicable faculties.The lab infrastructure for the Process control labs are highly modernized. But the computer labs and the instrumentation lab requires much up-gradation. The placement scenario for the college is not at all satisfactory. This is a great place to learn theoretically but very limited scope for practical applications. So if you learn the subject well with out any consideration about the placements I would suggest this is the place to be.

overall experience to me was a mixed experience. College life was awesome and I will never ever forget those times in my entire life. I got to know lot of different people some of them I consider as my best of friends till date. We helped each other a lot. In terms of faculty, few of them were really good and we did not miss/skip ;) a single lecture of them. Labs were not up to the mark as because we were the first batch and lots of things our management were learning to improve. Other facilities were good as well. At the end, I will always acknowledge my college for whatever I am today. I have learnt a lot of positive things, skills from my college and will definitely refer others.
