College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of the college is better than other colleges of Kolkata. There is a lush green playground available inside the campus. Classrooms and laboratories are spacious and averagely maintained. The library has a good collection of books.
Academics
Faculty members in the college are good. They know the subjects they teach. They are well versed. They are generally helpful. Most of them are approachable as well in case you have some doubts and want to clarify them. The course is relevant and as per the MAKAUT syllabus.
Placements
Placements in this college were decent. There were many mass recruiters and off-campus drives were also held in our college. Almost 70% got placed on the on-campus placement. Internships were provided from the companies where students got placed.

College Infrastructure
There are separate desks, air conditions are mostly available in classrooms of post graduate courses. Modern well-equipped computer labs, Wi-Fi facility but the college provides hostel facility only for girls and its pretty descent. Other practical labs and workshops are also good with quite a good number of instruments available. For food there is a cafeteria and a huge college canteen. Quality of the food served is average and the prices are quite economical.
Academics
I am currently pursuing B. Tech in Biotechnology. Teaching quality is good. Most of the teachers are brilliant in their fields while some are average. Some teachers are so good that they even ask students to approach them anytime if they need help in anything. Course curriculum is relevant and it makes the students industry-ready. I think Heritage Institute of Technology is one of the best engineering colleges in India.
Placements
Placement quality of HITK is really good. About 90-95% students are placed every year in companies like TCS, Wipro, Cognizant, Godrej, Infosys. Product based companies like TCS, Wipro, Infosys are giving a salary of about 3.5-4 lacs per annum. In 2013 one B. Tech student got placed in Microsoft with a salary of 20 lacs per annum. I think that is the highest package offered at HITK.
Value-for-money
In B. Tech per year course fees is around 98000. I think that the course fees is OK as compared to other private engineering institutes like 122652 in Amity University Kolkata, 125000 in IIEST Shibpur, around 170000 in VIT and many famous colleges and facilities provided in turn starting from teaching, activities to infrastructure are really admirable.
Campus Life
Campus environment is very good with lots of opportunities. Heritage campus is located at Chowbaga road, behind Ruby General Hospital. The college can be said as lovely when comes the turn of organizing various activities, seminars, fests, competitions. There are various clubs where you can join and engage in several activities.
Anything Else
Overall the college is very good in case of learning and it is an ideal institution to enjoy college life.

College Infrastructure
My College have all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment. The building is divided into three divisions for the ease of all the departments. The classrooms are well aired and spacy. Every laboratory in our college has very good assistants and they maintain all the equipments. The canteen is clean and the food is hygienic. The living spaces are also clean. The campus lacks unlimited Wi-Fi usage and provides as low as 34MB Jio-Net to each phone number. There are no smart boards.
Academics
I am studying B.Tech in Biotechnology. The quality of teaching is average as some facilities excels in their subject while others are average. Yet, we have regular classes. The curriculum is well updated and includes most of the recent developments, yet also lacks a few compared to colleges in other states. Yes, what I study makes me job-ready.
Placements
Our college, being a private one, has great chances of placements. Almost 70-80 percent students are placed, while 10 percent of the students always opt for research in Universities abroad. As far as I know the highest salary package offered was 16 lacs per annum, though I am not sure about the course. Highest possibility of it being B.Tech in Engineering & Architecture. Average salary is around 4-5 lacs per annum. I am still not placed.
Value-for-money
Per year cost of Engineering in most of the streams is around 1 lac. Yes, I feel the money is worth it.
Campus Life
College campus is fairly big with 3 main structures: the CME, CB and ICT, connected through foot connectors. The Central Building has a vast Auditorium. Beside the Engineering building there is a vast space and in the corner is standing the MBA building. There are two main playgrounds. For food, one can head to the Canteen or the Cafèteria, situated near the Heritage Academy. Once, inside the campus, it never feels unsafe, but the location of the college is remoted from the main city.
Anything Else
My experience in the college is fair. The teachers and staff are helpful and all the necessary facilities are available. Yes, there are a lot of flaws but they can be overlooked.

College Infrastructure
The college labs are fully equipped with the necessary arrangements. The computer labs are efficient and the biotech labs include all the tools required for proper learning . The library provides us with the necessary semester books before the commencement of the semester. Further there is a vide array of books to select from for other purposes amd digital library facilities are also provided. The food is hygeinic and within our budget. The washrooms and classes are kept clean .
Academics
The quality of teaching appeals to me. The teachers are serious in terms of academics and classes are conducted regularly with required attention to attendance. I feel the syllabus is a little unupdated but nevertheless several oppurtunites regarding courses and internships are encouraged by the instituition.
Placements
I am not familiar with the placement quality. From what i have learned usually a salary of 40,000 maximum i provided to those are lucky enough to get placed. The highest salary package usually goes to the computer science department and recruitment by TCS is pretty extensive from what i have learned from the college brochures. The placement numbers has seen a slight drop over the recent years owing to recession mostly.
Value-for-money
As far as monetary matters are concerned i do feel that our college gives our moneys worth. Its a private institituition and so people know that it will charge quite a lot. But at the same time i am not blind to some reknowned instituitions who charge way more and still end up providing the same facilities and oppurtunities in majority of the cases.
Campus Life
Campus is very engaging. Academics usually keeps us busy but at the same time clubs organise various projects for us to explore and participate in. Teachers are quite nice as far as doubt clearing is concerned though i domt know much. The staff are proffessional amd helpful at least to me and the students are okay to get along with.
Anything Else
No i am done .

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of the college is quite modern. It has three building to hold nine departments of B tech. It also has separated building for mass communication,M tech, Arts and law department all within the campus but has separate campus. The laboratories are quite good with modern technologies and CS and BT labs have ACs. Though all equipments are up to date. The campus holds a world class central library with digital library as well. Three sports ground along with cricket ground is there.
Academics
I am studying in Biotechnology department because i want to pursue a career in research in fields of biotechnology. The quality of teaching is good but some teachers are not suitable to teach in these institutions. Most of the professor are excellent, world class and we are happy to have them around. The curriculum is updated and include all recent developments in the field of biotechnology. The course is so well designed that it will prepare you for research as well as job. The guidance is good
Placements
Since I am in biotechnology department, the students here including me doesn't care much about placement. Though the placement system is quite good and keeps updated about interview procedure and others by organizing special seminars and giving us information. Few students in our department got placed in companies like Nestle, Cognizant,Amazon. Sometimes placement team fail to update you about details so you have to keep nudging them.High packages mainly goes to CS and EC departments. Rating- 5
Value-for-money
My course costs about 1 lakhs per year. Considering reading in a private autonomous college and course of high quality, I get value for money. I am happy with the facilities. There are options for full or half scholarship as well considering the financial condition of student and academics.
Campus Life
The best feature of the college is central library. The central library is well-equipped with books and journals. The other features are active co-curriculum clubs like dance,drama,sports,singing where you can showcase your talents. The worst feature is some classrooms are hot enough and they need proper fans and even air conditioning. The conditions of Mechanical labs are bit nasty too. Students are knowledgeable, teachers are worthy and support staffs are kind. The management is not great.
Anything Else
The location of college is little in the village area and hence there is a little transportation problems. It cannot handle emergency situations well enough like Covid-19, bulbul because of poor management. The Fest Eclesia is one of the biggest fest in Eastern India engineering colleges. But due too some internal political issues and poor management, it has been organized in proper way for last 3 years. If you want a college with a lot of activities along with studies, Heritage welcomes you!

The college has a great campus, necessary infrastructure and decent labs for my stream (Biotechnology). The classrooms are clean, the canteen is extremely nice and hygienic. There is an in-campus girls hostel and the boys hostels are outside the campus. The library is decent and has a proper collection of books.
Academics
I'm currently pursuing B.Tech in Biotechnology. Most of the faculties are extremely helpful and qualified to teach although some exceptions can always be there, just as in other institutions. The syllabus is properly updated and the laboratories are well equipped.
Placements
Placements have not been up to the mark in the college and almost no core placements in my field takes place in the college, although a lot of IT companies come and recruit students each year. Overall, CSE, IT, ECE departments are well placed.
Value-for-money
Each year (two semesters) my course fees sum up to almost 90,000 rupees. I feel it's worth it since college provides a lot of opportunity for growth and development, personally and professionally and prepares us for the future in our core fields.
Campus Life
Campus Life has been phenomenal. Students can engage in numerous club activities and social work in the various clubs. The Rotaract Club of HITK is one of the most active clubs in not just the college but also among the several rotaract clubs in the city. The staff and students are extremely friendly and the campus is ragging-free, hence safety of each individual is of utmost importance.

I'm a first year Biotechnology student and would like to do research work in near future. From my experience, the teachers I know are very student friendly and are quiet helpful.

Placements
The placement is good. Large number of companies come to the college every year and recruits almost 70-80% students. Most of the students from different departments are placed in various prestigious companies like Capgemini, Wipro, Cognizant etc.
Value-for-money
Since it is a private college, the fee structure is not affordable by all.
Anything Else
The experience in this college till now has been really good. Lot of events took place, the most memorable one has to be the freshers event NASCENT 2020.

HITK is one of the best private engineering institutions in Kolkata due to it's exemplary infrastructure. Starting from airy classrooms, hygienic washrooms, to well spaced canteen, this college has it all. All the equipments in the classroom as well as laboratories are well maintained and they are all used in daily basis.
Academics
I have always had the dream of being a learned biotechnologist and this college has given me that opportunity. My entire curriculum is thoroughly updated according to the daily advancements in this field. The teachers are extremely highly qualified and they make learning easier. Everything that is being taught prepares me for the future challenges.
Placements
The quality of placements have been good so far. About 60-70% of the students were placed in campus placements. The average salary offered was around 2.5-3 lakhs per annum. As per my seniors, the placement process was easy to go through.
Value-for-money
My course costs around 1lakh per year and it's absolutely worth it.
Campus Life
The campus life is rejuvenating. After a busy day of classes and labs, hanging out with friends at the lush green fields and the canteen feels like a breath of fresh air.

Yes college had all the necessary infrastructure from toilets to classes everything was very fine. The living spaces were clean and hygienic. The libraries and the labs were also well taken care of by the college.

I pursued B.Tech in Information Technology. The quality of teaching was good. The curriculum as per other colleges is pretty similar with some extensions in some areas. But all in all the education will get you job ready if you get yourself trained for the placements.
Placements
The placements are good in college. If you're average you'll get placed just a handful of students fail in their acads. The placement dept. is very supportive. The average salary can be ranging from 4 - 6 lakh with the highest going like 40-45 lakh a rare few.
Value-for-money
It costed for two semester likely from 90000 - 1 lakh.

College has all the necessary infrastructure the bathrooms were kept clean and the canteen food was pretty hygienic. All the classrooms are well maintained with CCTV's in the corridors plus WiFi for students in the campus using their college credentials.
Academics
Studying and pursuing a B.Tech in Information Technology. The teachers and faculties are decent and are really helpful during the time of need. The curriculum I would say matches all of the topics and the things we learn are being taught in various universities. I would say as a whole India's education system competence to train an individual to perform well in industries and future advancements is lacking.
Placements
The placements are pretty much okay if you are studying and keeping up with your curriculum just a handful of students fail. If you're average or lower average in studies you can get placed. I think the highest package was 40-45 lakhs p.a and it went to a student pursuing Computer Science And Engineering. The average salary for an individual would be 4-6 lakh p.a. The college's placement department is very supportive.
Value-for-money
Per year, I could combine 2 semesters and the academic fee would amount to 90000- 1 lakh give or take increasing per semester. I am getting my money's worth likely in studies and acads but not in other activities.
Campus Life
The campus is pretty well taken care of. The gardeners are the real deal trimming the extra grass or leaves of bushes to make your surroundings more beautiful. It's good what it has done according to the anti-ragging campaigns. But other than that there is limitations in college activities and other festival organisations. Our college is okay in terms of safe and soundness if you keep your distance from politics. And the majority faculty act really nicely in front of the students.
Anything Else
However it was it was cool and I really miss my hostel life.

College Infrastructure
HITK, although a private engineering college, has a very big and well maintained campus. The classrooms are big, clean, well ventilated and has a capacity of 60-70 students.The labs of our department are air conditioned and well maintained. The campus has three canteens, two playgrounds ,basketball and volleyball court and a digital library having around 40k books.
Academics
I am pursuing BTech in Biotechnology. I chose this college because very few colleges in Kolkata teach biotech and among them HITK has a very good rank and infrastructure. The teachers are quite friendly and qualified but they believe in giving assignments and keeping students always occupied thus carrying forward the typical Indian system of education.Some of the teachers are updated and modern while some of them stick to basic fundamentals of teaching.
Placements
Placement means mostly IT companies such as Wipro tcs, Infosys, etc. Core companies that come to our college are very few in number. The average salary of a student is around 3.6 lakh per annum. There are students who gets a good package as high as 6-7 lakhs per annum but it's mainly the talent of the individual.The placement cell works hard so that even average or below average students gets a job but the placement in core companies is not good.
Value-for-money
Each semester costs around 45k-50k rupees. So the entire course costs around 4 lakhs. The facilities that they provide are good enough but not outstanding so I personally feel it's little more than it should have been. But when compared to other reputed private institutions in or outside Kolkata the expenditure seems to be low and affordable.
Campus Life
There are various good and bad things about campus life. The good things being there are various clubs for co curricular activities such as music,dance ,drama , quiz, science ,etc.There's a student body that looks after all these things. Sometimes, there lies a gap between students and management that helps certain people to cause problems in the campus.

I am a student of BTech.And I am studying electronics and communication engineering.Here the quality of education is well good.Some teachers are really very good in respect of teaching.But in my point of view they should more focus on practical knowledge and skills instead of bookish things and all those assignments stuff.Yes the curriculum is updated but this will efficient if we practically learn and understand the functioning, working of different electronic devices.
Placements
If you are in cse,it or ece then the placement is quite good but in core branch it will be somehow little different.This is not a real issue in current years,core companies are coming and giving jobs but in less quantity.But the package is below average approx 3-5 lakhs per annum.It is similar to quality and quantity.Quality placement is not here but you can do wonders in exams like GATE,CAT etc.Easily internship programmes can be accessed from this college.
Value-for-money
Course cost per year is almost one lakh.To be honest, being the first year student, I do not feel that I am getting my money worth because from my point of view they should more focus on practical knowledge instead of just assignments.
Campus Life
College campus is really very good.It's awesome.A very peaceful environment with full of greenary is there.As I have incampus hostel,I spend all my day in campus.It has a good location with all facilities available nearby it has a big market,hospital etc.You can cheerfully spend your day and can engage yourself in different activities like sports, painting, indoor games etc.Also there are different clubs like for dancing, music, photography,acting etc. and you can be a part as per your interest.
Anything Else
I feel in respect of infrastructure and campus, it's good as it has many facilities.Teachers and staff are also supportive.Safety and security is well concerned.But as I say the college should focus on knowledge, skills so that many students can get a good placement.Overall it's good.

The quality of teaching is very high and the all the professors hold atleast a master's degree.

College Infrastructure
The college boasts about state of the art infrastructure with well maintained campus, the classrooms have adequate light and are airy, the central library provides for all our book needs and we also have access to digital library. The college also has hostels within the campus which are spacious and affordable. The canteen of Heritage provides us with healthy and affordable foods. The lab in my department are large and maintained, however some of the instruments need replacements.
Academics
Biotechnology curriculum and faculty is one of the best not only in the college but also in the Eastern Region. Every year nearly 15 students qualify GATE from our department which has a strength of 60 students, which is quite a good number. Most of the students opt for higher studies and perform quite well there too..
Placements
Though, every year you'll hear about problems in placement, yet most of the students get placed on campus. Nearly 60-80% students get placed overall. The average package is about 3.5-4.5 lpa. Ultimately, placement depends more on your skills. I bagged a job in Biotech core company with 4.37lpa package, which is quite rare given the present market conditions. I'm grateful to college for providing me with all sorts of pre -placement assistance. The TPO cell is no doubt one of the best in HITK.
Value-for-money
The entire cost of studying B.Tech will be nearly around 4 lacs excluding living expenses. The quality of professors are very good, most of them having PhD from reputed institutions like IIT or abroad. Even after being a private college, the fees structure is less than NITs and IITs. So, if you want to do your Bachelors from Kolkata, Heritage is definitely a very good option.
Campus Life
The campus life is full of ups and downs, though for the last 2-3 years we did not recieve the well known 'Eclecia' - The cultural fest of Heritage, we were all set to organize it this year, since the college even formed a students' council for the same. In previous years, the student activities were organized through clubs where the faculties were very helpful. nevertheless, there are enough activities and opportunities to keep you engaged.
Anything Else
I personally believe that my decision to join college had been one of the best decisions I've taken. The beautiful campus has never made me feel burdened for staying long in college. Instead, I loved college more than my friends in other colleges. A tip for the students: Do try to attend as much classes as much as possible, 4 years of college will pass sooner than you think. I really miss college, given the fact that it ended abruptly due to COVID-19 pandemic.

College Infrastructure
Great Infrastructure with modern facilities. Labs are well equipped especially Biotechnology labs and thus provides research opportunities... Lecture and tutorial rooms, classrooms are airy, spacious and equipped with overhead projectors. There are excellent facilities for outdoor+ indoor games and sports like cricket, football , volleyball, basketball, table tennis, carrom, badminton and many more. College Canteen provides hygienic and good quality foods but they are overpriced.
Academics
It is a autonomous college (but affiliated to MAKAUT) so you have to pay your full focus and concentration during class. If you want to study Biotechnology but could get into any of the NITs then you may get into this college. Same goes for CSE, IT and other departments. It provides amazing learning opportunities. Good faculty members and seniors are much helpful.
Placements
I am a Biotechnology student in this college. Commonly Biotech students are not concerned with placements except few. They opt for higher studies. Placement is average. TCS is the main company that comes to hire students.

Infrastructure of this institution is quite good . Library, laboratories, classrooms , buildings are clean enough . But canteen should be improved . The food quality of canteen should be improved according to the price of it.
Academics
Teachers are very helpful. They co-operate the students very well . Their lectures , presentation help the students to improve in academics . Through the assignment, extra classes , class tests they clear doubts.
Placements
Quality of placement is not bad, but it needs to improve more. As a student of biotechnology btech , we don't get much chances to be recruited in core companies . So this institution should look into this matter.
Value-for-money
It costs 45k avg per sem, 2lakh for entire BTech course, which is considerable for a good engineering college . But in some laboratories , instruments should be improved and of enough quantities so that individual student can practice on it .
Campus Life
College campus is quite pleasant. But the college needs to improve its canteen. The food they serve in canteen is average according to the price they charge for it . And for its odd location, the college should serve a bus service for all students from Ruby hospital.
Anything Else
Location of this institution is near anandapur, which is 2km from Ruby hospital. Sometimes students get difficulty to get auto to reach the college . The institute should serve bus service from Ruby hospital , so that students can easily reach college without getting in trouble. But the institute serve this kind of facilities only for faculties.

Heritage provides an infrastructure which is quite satisfying. We are having digital library for getting the last year question paper. It has ground for our sport activities. The infrastructure is really good .

The teachers are always helpful for our doubt. They alway support us in our study topic . We really learn well for practical working. If an student puts an effort in their study he or she can sure do well.
Placements
Placement is quite good from IT companies. Core companies for biotechnology work are their in heritage but the number is less...........................................................................

Well facilitated labs, airy classrooms, state of the art equipments. Flexible college timings, a library with everything under one roof. And the canteen can easily compete with any food joint in town.
Academics
Teachers are always available for you. Availability of teachers are better than schools infact. Be it one on one or in a group, if you half a doubt, you have someone to solve it. I will not give the fake impression of every teacher is great, but those who are, they are the best in town.
Placements
I haven't been a part of any placement session yet as am not in my final year yet but I have heard HITK offers one of the best campus placements in town. It's one of the best in Eastern India without any doubt.

The college has a very good infrastructure. The campus is very big. The labs, libraries, hostels and canteen are very well maintained. The labs have the latest equipments. Everything is not perfect. But everything about the infrastructure is good enough to make you feel good about the college altogether.
Academics
I personally am studying Biotechnology. The quality of teaching is good. The curriculum is updated and it does include all the recent developments in the field. The labs have the latest equipments which help us gain knowledge about the field easily.
Placements
The placements vary with respect to the stream. CSE and IT have very good placements but they don't get a good package. The average package is around 3.5 lakhs while the highest package was around 16 lakhs.
Campus Life
The campus life is very good. There are no scary seniors like most people say. The seniors and tea hers are very helpful. Within just 1 year of being in this college I have made many memories in the campus.

44 thousand approx per semester. Yes I feel the money is really worth it as in Heritage the environment is so pleasant as well as the teaching quality is good.

Campus Life is awesome at Heritage. There are club activities which are held such as dance drama sports etc. The college has its own Rotaract club and NSS club which are worth getting in . The location is also ok and there are college buses .The place is safe the college authorities can handle any sort of emergency.
Anything Else
Worth getting in for a whole new dimension in life

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is good. Laboratories are well maintained with latest equipment. All classrooms are clean with proper furniture, elevators are present in all buildings. The halls are also well furnished and air conditioned. The canteen is clean and hygienic. The library is one of the best.
Academics
I'm studying biotcech because I've always loved the subject. In the first year we haven't studied a lot of core biotech material but what ever we have learnt is well updated. The subjects we have studied make it possible for us to pursue a career in any stream.
Placements
Most of the placements in college go to the computer science and IT departments. No core companies recruit biotech engineers and our only choice is to take a job in data entry which isn't our field or study masters.
Value-for-money
The college provides a lot of facilities including co curricular activities but the course costs approximately one lakh twenty thousand a year which is a lot. The faculty is top notch yet the money is too much for the course.
Campus Life
The college campus is located on the outskirts in a silent locality, so there always is peace and focus. The students are very friendly and dedicated teachers are supremely helpful and support staff is always available in times of need.
