Alumina network in our college is very strong.Alumina association organizes various industry related workshops.our oraganization is called gcect alumini.Every passed out senior is a member of it.they helped in placements.And senior students are also very good,they have their way of teaching us for our studies,which helped me a lot. The college life is very astonishing for me,the seniors,juniors are very interactive with me.there is no ragging in our college.We organized android workshops and robotic workshops in our college.There is a playgrond where we play football,cricket.a common room is there where we enjoyed our tiffen periods with our friends.

Campus Placements - Placements are average. Every year, one or two mass recruiter comes like Wipro, Tech Mahindra etc and if you are quite good with your aptitude skills, decent communication skills and technical knowledge then getting placed in such companies is not that difficult. CGPA does not matter much but luck plays a role. But if you miss the initial one or two mass recruiters, then you will be in trouble. Placements afterwards will be dependent on few pool campus and off drives where getting placed wont be that easy. Faculty - Average. Sad but true !! I must also mention that some faculties are even below average and are not open to new ideas, challenging projects etc. Peer Learning - Very Good. Most of my friends possess expertise in various fields and comes from diverse backgrounds. You may meet a lot of smart people here who will influence you in a positive way. Our batch consisted of a lot of talented students from whom I have learnt a lot. Infrastructure - Labs are average. The Library is pretty good. There is no college canteen due to less student population in the college but a 10 min walk will take you to some nearby good canteens. Location and Campus - It is situated beside the E.M Bypass and is well connected from various parts of Kolkata. The campus is decent. Some of the other good things about the college are - Scoring good marks in practicals is not that difficult. Being a government college, it has excellent ROI. Considering you will be passing out from MAKAUT even if you go to a private college, preferring a private college does not make much sense as there you have to spend around 4 lakhs. If you are not skillfull enough, you will not get placed even at a private college. If you want to work hard and want to develop by yourself, there is a lot of free time which you can invest in other activities like learning coding, preparing for competitive exams etc. But the disadvantage is as the student population is very less ( as there are only three streams taught in our college ) and there is a lack of college activities ( like student run clubs, competitions, not a good enough fest etc ) so you may not get a chance to enjoy your college life fully. I have tried to give an honest answer highlighting all the pros and cons of the college. To sum it up, it lies among the average colleges of the state as it cant compete with the likes of JU, IIEST, IEM etc but again a way better than a lot of other colleges. But remember whichever college you choose, what matters at the end is your level of competence and skills. Good Luck buddy !!!

In terms of campussing: Campussing is always variable every where depending on market condition. I can tell you that in 2015 the campussing was around 50% which increased a lot in 2016 around 95% (Wipro as a mass recruiter) . Location: Very good and very well connected through EM Bypass. Buses, taxis, autos to sealdah, phoolbagan available . Campus: Before 4 year It was like a haunted campus but believe me in 4 year we just can not believe that this our old CELT campus. Much much development has taken place. Blue campus, greenery, cricket ground development has taken place. It is an excellent campus now with lift and wifi. Canteen: You would not find any canteen inside campus as nobody wants to give canteen for 120*4=480 students only. But walk few seconds from college and you will find lots and lots of good quality canteen there. Education and teacher: Education quality is Fair. No comments. Few teachers are excellent , few are good and others are average as it happens in other colleges. Lab and Practical: If I have to be honest labs are average. Computers are not so good but will be sufficient for your course. Afterall GCELT is one of the two government engineering colleges of kolkata. I have secured a WBJEE rank 3660 and choose this college over kalyani as I was from beliaghta , the college was near my home. So my brother, dont waste your time thinking so much. Just got admit to this college. This college will serve you its best . I assure your future will be settled.

Well I am a passout of this college , and to say the least I would advise the students (fresher’s) Plz don’t take admission in any colleges under MAKAUT. Its one of the worst university of India. This University doesn’t have a proper schedule and often stays behind from other universities. This year I got to know from my juniors that exam was delayed by 1 month, due to which many students lost their jobs as they could not submit their provisional certificate of passing the exams on due date. Coming back to Government College of Engineering and Leather Technology or fondly called Gcelt by the students is a college which is not at par with any colleges like JU, IIEST, IIT or NIT. Talking about classes most of the teachers here are associate professors(which means they are not permanent) teaching is quite average and it is the matter of your own interest whether you are interested in that subject. Otherwise if you can’t understand the subject just mug the ORGANIZER (Oh! I forgot to tell you about this, This is Holy Bible for each WBUT aka MAKAUT students). Coming to Labs its below average , our Computers still run on Windows XP, other labs such as mechanical , electronics also has shortage of components and sometime the entire batch has to work with single machine. The teachers and staff has a very laid back attitude. One more fact about this college is its website and Wikipedia page go and search them you will return disappointed , things haven’t been updated there for a long time(For eg- The college website states that their is a college canteen,Well I wasn’t able to figured it out!! in my 4 years of Engineering) plus their is no proper information provided. A new student always lacks proper knowledge about this college. One more important thing 95% of Kolkata’s population has no knowledge about this college they don’t even know that such a college do exist! Coming to Library its quite average , work is still done manually here. Its quite an irony being a college which teaches student CSE & IT , the college’s library is not computerized. Good books are available yet the quantity is short. This was about academics . Now after completing his daily dose of studies a tired student’s mind requires recreation . Where will he find it ? Sports Ground ?right . Sorry Guys Gcelt has a ground but it is not managed well Thanks again to poor management , the ground has long grasses and which is not pruned regularly. Only during the sports event(cricket and football) the grasses are pruned and the ground is managed , again confirming the lackadaisical approach of the management and the students union. Coming to Fest part. Students are always excited about fest both Tech-fest and Cultural fest. But again sorry guys these fest are quite substandard and they are organized just for the sake of doing so. The students from JU , IIEST never visit our fest! cause they know our reality. This college has no clubs or societies like TED, ISTE , No Theatre where students could enhance their extracurricular talents. I am being extremely brutal and honest here. The Student Union which organizes this is worthless to say the least . When the seeding is not good how can you expect a great harvesting! This is true for placements , when the teaching and infrastructure are not good how can you expect a great campus recruitment . Here comes your own knowledge , skills and competence . Wipro , Tech Mahindra are the chief recruiters and the CTC they provide is even less than a Government Clerk(shocked!you read it correct) . One more thing which I heard from my friends who stayed at Hostel said that the infrastructure there was not upto the mark. So everything till now looks dull and negative. But this is reality , I don’t want to tell any sugary story full of myths. Only few positive points could be wifi , lift , and location of the campus. Many people reading this might say “kaisa banda hai yaar apni clg ki burai karta hai”.But it hurts despite getting a 5000 rank in WBJEE when you get a college with these qualities . We are not that bad right? ! Another question can be about being anonymous? Well it just gives you the power to write the reality ! lastly if you have no option then join it , else find some other good college. The college is good but its the management which ruins it , Time and Again you are gonna realize it! IF incase there is no option for you, join the college but don’t waste your time , make plans for Higher studies or you gonna regret it later . This is not a criticism , but a healthy criticism after all I want my alma mater to Shine! open to questions but don’t ask identity! LOL . Have a great future!

College Bites

Posted on 02 Feb' 17 by Dipayan Adhikary
Batch of 2017 | B.Tech Leather Technology
It is a very good college indeed. Backed and funded by the Government Of West Bengal, the college has got a decent updated infrastructure for all the streams it offers. The total intake for each year is around 150. The college has got a very big campus compared to the number of branches it offers. The college is wifi-enabled(which is a big plus) and air-conditioned labs which proper machines in enough numbers. The faculty members aren't that great overall though some of them are really amongst the best in the state, but if one wants to learn, he/she can find ways to do so with the help of the faculties present in the college itself. The placements are also pretty decent with companies like Wipro Technologies, Capgemini, Infosys, Amazon, Tech Mahindra, Oracle, TCS etc visiting the campus every year(for CSE & IT only), and again companies like Tata International Ltd, VIP, Drish Shoes etc with some leading chemical companies recruits the students pursuing Leather Technology. The college is also located in a very convenient location over the EM-bypass in Salt Lake with a good student ambience around with colleges like NIFT,NUJS and JU(2nd campus) nearby. The college has got facilities for cultivating extra-curricular activities like sports etc with a 7-a-side football ground and volleyball, badminton courts. The fees structure for the courses is very economical, hence affordable or value for money as one could think of it ranging from 3-12k INR per semester(which is actually economical) and also provides TFW(Tuition Fee Waiver) and other merit-based scholarships(Half/Full Fee) for the students who qualify its eligibility criterion. The college-life which the students experiences varies from individuals, though the students are very active with co-curricular and social activities like organizing tech fest, cultural fest, various competitions etc every year to taking part in nationally organized events. The student crowd is not a very high-end one which has a blend of students coming from different ethnic,community and financial backgrounds who are comfortable with the vernacular languages mostly. The college is affiliated to the Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology(Formerly WBUT). To end my review, I'd say this not just because am a student of this particular college, but this college could be preferred over any private engineering colleges present in the state. If one couldn't make it into JU, IIEST(shibpur),NIT(dgp), NPTI(though it only offers BTech in Power Engineering) or Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College, then GCELT can be considered as an option at par with Kalyani Government Engineering College(though stream preferences could be there for the unlike streams) and also better than any other Government Engineering Colleges in the state considering its prime location in the city of Kolkata and also as well the placement record it has have had over the years.
