I felt trapped as if I was locked inside a room with countless number of keys. Alright coming back to it, take a look at the following:- 1)Infrastructure- Very poor. 2)Faculty- Some professors are okay-ish but they will all seem to be way better in contrast to the other professors (oh yes i heard some of those good teachers are also resigning). 3) Placements-Doesn't matter. It is all same in most "average" private engineering colleges. 4)Social Life - LOL 5)If you want a holistic development this college is not for you. 6)Labs- Average. 7)Outdated curriculum. My advice -- 1)Practice coding and other technical aspects. Do lots of moocs and projects. 2)Keep an average attendance and an average CGPA. 3)Improve your public speaking skills. 4)Networking(not need to explain). 5)If you are from ECE but interested in Computer Science like me, do the same above. And lastly, don't follow your friends and rules blindly.

Overrated private college.

How is the campus life at IEM, Institute of Engineering and Management, Kolkata? The campus life is far worse than that of most colleges. To be frank the ambience is that of a school where you are under surveillance all the time and your movements are recorded by the CC cameras. In this context let me brief a bit about the 3 different campuses of IEM in Salt Lake,Kolkata. The Ashram campus is for the BBAs and amongst the other two at College More, the one located adjacent to the Traffic Police kiosk(Gurukul Campus) is for the second, third and fourth years of ECE,CSE and IT streams and the other one located opposite to the Godrej Waterside(Management Building) is for the MBAs, first year of all streams (ECE,CSE,IT,EE,ME)and second, third and fourth years of ME & EE. So being an ECE student I had been in the Management campus for one year only and the remaining 3 years I have been in the Gurukul Campus. The salary range was 3 to 5 lpa. Many students went for MS, MBA, MTech, after getting placed or after working for 2 to 3 years. Then the batch size increased and the multiple offers stopped. It makes sense that way, One IT Company is very like another IT Company. Then, IEM expanded even more and yes, placements doesn't get wrapped up in two days like it used to happen when we graduated. But still 100% people get placed and the salaries are at par, with industry standards. Every student who gets admission in IEM will graduate with a job, that's the promise and the college till date , has delivered it. Students are bright, at least 60% of them are. For those into robotics, coding, music, photography and other cool stuff, you will have people interested in them...you have to search a bit. But the overall atmosphere gets you into contact with some bright minds, inspiring profs and many go for higher studies. Being placed is something no-one worries about, except maybe when the companies come hiring. The rest of the time, one can cultivate one's hobbies or study for entrances. Faculty in IEM, Kolkata is good.. I'm saying good not the best. Being a student of iem, I will only say that the faculty in this college is good and far better than any other faculty of other private colleges in West Bengal... Most of the faculty are aged and experienced one... I would suggest you to go through the college website to get good picture of the college, fee structure, placements and also get to know about some of the alumini.

IEM or Institute of Engineering and Management is one of the oldest and top privated colleges of Kolkata. Basically admission to IEM is done through IIT-JEE and WBJEE. The cut- off rank for students wanting to secure a seat in IEM is upto 2000 in WBJEE and for students appearing in JEE exam, one needs to qualify Jee-Mains in order to get admitted. However, the cut-off may vary every year. I completed my B.Tech from year in the year and 2014 and am currently employed with WIPRO, Delhi since two years. Every aspect of IEM is worth praising and is detailed as follows - 1.) Campus life - Campus life of IEM is awesome. With a wide campus that encloses various basic amenities inside the campus, it makes a students life easy. Me and my friends used to hangout till late night in our hostel roofs. One of the best places for friends hangout is the college canteen and Randhari Chacha’s tea. Nothing could beat this combination. The best thing about IEM is that no one is forced whatsoever to do anything. Students can attend classes or they cannot. Action is only taken when matters gets a little serious. Our favourite timepass was the ground where we used to hit the cricket during Sundays. 2.) Fee structure - Admission to IEM for B.Tech four year course has an expenditure of Rs 42, 000 per semester(excluding hostel and mess facility), and the fees gradually increases every year. 3.) Hostel facility - Limited boarding & lodging are available separately for both boys & girls. The hostels are split separately for boys and girls and the students are placed according to their respective years in B.Tech. However the availability of rooms are limited and the students who fail to acquire a room in the college hostel are accommodated in the hostels outside the college campus. Within the college campus, the fees of the hostels are Rs 5000 – Rs 7500 per month which includes fooding facility, AC and Non-AC rooms, etc. This fees is included in the fees structure of the college. Outside the campus, hostels are a little cheaper ranging from Rs 3500 – Rs 7000. The hostels are split into rooms that are shared by three students and a barely minimum space available. However there is an additional option for separate bathrooms which requires a higher fee. For students opting for PGs, the price is around Rs 3500 to Rs 8000 per month depending on the facilities provided 4.) Mess facility - Food is available as purely veg for vegetarians and purely no-veg for non-vegetarians. Mess food however is equally odd in every place. There has always been a bad reputation for mess food in practically every college of India unlike some very sophisticated college. My college IEM isn’t an exception either. The first year I spent in the college hostel, food was simply worth gulping. In the second year, I shifted to a hostel outside the college campus and the food was slightly better there compared to its previous one. In the third year, me and a few friends shifted to a PG and food were made by us only so we didn’t have to complain about mess food. However food is strictly of bad taste in the mess here and even though the items do have a certain portion of Non-Veg stuff, the availability of chicken or egg or fish failed to charm the students, or me precisely. 5.) Faculty - The faculty of IEM is among the best in West Bengal. The professors are highly qualified and equally friendly in their behaviour. Minimum qualification of a professor is a Masters degree and most of them are Doctorates in their respective field. 6.) Placements - IEM holds a strong position among other private colleges in terms of placement. According to a recent study, it has provided 100% placement to its students for the past seven years. n our batch, everyone got placed within 5 days. 80% of the batch had multiple offers. I personally had 3 offers. I am presently working with ITC Infotech since 1 year and my salary is around Rs 30000. The college has four placement officers under the chairmanship of the Institute's director who work as placement cell. Many reknown companies hoist their cells to recruit students from IEM. Some of the very famous companies that are known to regularly recruit IEM graduates are: •Tata Consultancy Services •Cognizant Technology Solutions •Wipro Technologies •Price Waterhouse Coopers •Siemens •Microsoft •Sasken •Infosys •Capgemini The companies along with their average packages and students recruitment are as follows: 1.Microsoft(offers as high as 15 lakhs packages) – Recruits 5-6 students approx. 2.INFOSYS(offers 2-4 lakhs) – Recruits 100-150 students approx. 3.WIPRO(offers 2-4 lakhs) – Recruits 50-100 students approx. 4.Capgemini(offers 5-6 lakhs) – Recruits 10 students approx. 5.TATA consultancy services(offers 6-7 lakhs) – Recruits 10-15 students approx. Amongst other companies are IBM, ACC, NESTLE, VODAFONE, IDEA, KOTAK, TECH MAHINDRA, RELIANCE, SATYAM, LNT, HSBC, INDIAN ARMY, ASIAN PAINTS, ICICI, HP, ACCENTURE, BHARTI AIRTEL, ERRICSON, FINTECH, LEXMARK International, KLONEMARK, TEOCO, ADP, etc. Almost 60-70 percent of the students are recruitrecruited by INFOSYS, INFOTECH, COGNIZANT and WIPRO every year regularly. 7.) College events - IEM hosts a number of Technical, Culltural and Management fest throughout the year. These festivals are for the entertainment and knowledge purpose of students. A lot of colleges participate in these fests and some very reknowned personalities also attend to perform in such fests. INNOVACION - Innovacion is the annual technological fest of Institute of Engineering and Management, organized in association with University of Engineering and Management. It celebrates technical prowess and out of the box thinking. It helps participants to think, ideate, innovate and push themselves to go that extra mile. It is a medium through which the youth can express their views, their creativity, their talent and their technological skills. The fest has a plethora of technical and non-technical events ranging from Robotics, Coding, Electronics, Management, Core Science and Mathematics, Gaming and a number of other fun and adrenaline-gushing events. Apart from these events, many workshops and trainings are carried out that aid students bring the them face to face with the leading and emerging technologies of the world, which is set to be a very enlightening experience for the budding creative minds. IEMCON is another such grand fest which witnesses huge participation. IEMCON is organized in the Science City Auditorium. Stream toppers are felicitated on that day. Awards are also given to students for their all-round performance. IEMCON also witnesses speeches from eminent professors across the nation. 8.) Extra Curricular - IEM holds a number of short term courses, seminars and workshops to enhance the participation of students into various extra curricular activities that boosts knowledge. Various seminars like International Conference on “Innovative Techno management solutions”, National Seminar on Technology Invasion in Social Lifestyle, Toy Technology, Could Computing, Strategic HR audit are directed towards the enlightment of students knowledge in various fields like Computing, Business, Enterpreneurship, etc. Another best thing about college life is the parties and hangouts we get to attend. From “Freshers Party” in the first year to individual hostel parties, everything holds a special memory in the students heart. The freshers party is generally organised by seniors to welcome juniors. IEM holds competitions among departments on who conducts the best freshers party. Hostel parties are a part of the ongoing process. Every students birthday in our batch constituted into an elaborate party which later turned out to be an event where the Warden would come running to chase us into our rooms. These experiences would stay by forever. Final Verdict - I believe every students college is the best in his/her opinion. And the time they spent there is the best moment of their life. My four years in IEM(2010-2014) were the best phase of my life. IEM was and is like my next home. I made a lot of friends and a few enemies, not to forget that. However the experiences I had been through here will always be cherished. There is nothing bad I have to say about IEM. It’s the best college in my opinion and I recommend it to every student aspiring for WBJEE. All I have to say about IEM is that when you arrive here, you won’t be disappointed.

can I get chance in IEM KOLKATA IN CSE department , my percentile in jee mains is 80 percentile

Yastika Kumar 21st Jan, 2020

Hi Tulsi,

Unfortunately the answer is No. Last year's JEE main cutoff for round 3 of counseling went upto 21231 and your rank is around 173802.

(Formula : (100-percentile)*869010/100)

This will more likely to increase after April session exam as no of students may go upto 1200000. You can appear for WBJEE (if eligible).

What is the difference between IEM & UEM Kolkata?....... Please provide the informations in detail and Why the cutoff of the IEM is so high regarding UEM?....... Please highlight the placements of both colleges.....Is both of IEM & UEMs placement same?

Siddhi Shenoy 16th Jan, 2020

Hello Arindam,

The Institute of Engineering and Management (IEM) is a government Institution while University of Engineering and Management (UEM) is a private Institution. Among these two, UEM is among the top ranked colleges in state of West Bengal and therefore it's cutoffs are high. While, you can easily get admission in IEM through an entrance exam conducted by them.

In the placement view, IEM seems to have higher  placement records than UEM.
