College Infrastructure
Yes, infrastructure of this college is good. The classrooms and laboratories are well furnished. As a engineering college it provide us all essential facilities. The central library of our college consists of lots of books as it is one of the oldest engineering college of the country. we have total 3 sports ground and 5 hostels in our campus. The hostel food is good and in the hostel we get wi-fi and library facility. But the campus is not well maintained and is not cleaned regularly.
Academics
currently i am studying electrical engineering and i am in the first year . The quality of teachers is very good and the way they deliver the lessons is very enjoyable . They teach us in such a way that everything becomes very interesting to us . They are also very helpful and clear all our doubts . The course is very much updated . professors not only gives us theoretical knowledge but helps us to gain knowledge through practical experiment. If I study properly my future will be bright.
Placements
placement in our college is average. This year almost 70% students get placed with an average package 3.8 lpa . one of them is placed in MEDIA.NET with an package of 30 lpa. But in 2019 the placement scenario was not good at all. so placement varies from year to year . some no of companies visit our campus every year but they offer 3 to 3.5 lpa.
Value-for-money
I am in electrical engineering department and my 4 years course fee is just 35000 . For all the core branches the course fee is minimum . But in case of Informational technology it is almost 1.10 lakhs for 4 years . But according to me it is very much worthy because if i go to pursue the same degree to a private engineering college it will take huge amount of money.
Campus Life
campus life is very good in our college. seniors are very helpful to us . There is no ragging in our college . There is total 18 clubs like coder's club , rotract club, dance club , drama club , photography club etc . our college also has an initiative named JOTI. This is mainly a free night study center where students from nearby slum come for studying.our college also has SRISTI(technical fest) and JECLET(cultural fest). college staffs, professors and alumnus are also very helpful.

College Infrastructure
Its satisfactory when a government college is considered. Wifi is available. Very good labs and workshops with advanced machines and technologies. 3D printers and CAD labs also present. Faculty is very co-operative and tbh that is the best thing. Faculties are extremely friendly and helpful. Theres a central library with most of the required books available as well as each library has its own library. Hostel rooms are satisfactory, not grand though.
Academics
Curriculum is based on the University guidelines. Teachers are well experienced. Though classes are cancelled sometimes. Practicals and workshops are organised. Participation in lots of Hackathons and Tech Fests are promoted. Overall its average.
Placements
Placements are good for CSE and IT. For my branch i.e. ME placement is a bit tough though some are placed in very good companies but those are like 5 students. Faculties are a lot supportive during the process.
Value-for-money
Government Colleges are very friendly on the pocket. A 4 year course is costing me just 46K ruppees.
Campus Life
One of the best features. Overnight canteens open. Lots of clubs in campus. Gym in campus. Volleyball, Basketball courts are also there. Lots of playing grounds, indoor games in hostels. Robotics clubs, Space clubs, photography etc. College has its own music band and dance group. Organises the biggest Technical and Cultural fest of North Bengal. Most of the things available in campus including a State Bank branch and Indian Post kiosk branch. So no issues regarding safety. 24hr CCTV surveillance

Placements
Placement is of average package of about 3-4 LPA. Top MNCs like TCS, CTS, Capgemini, Infosys comes from on campus recruitment. Also core companies like Haldia Petrochemicals visits and has given a good package of 10LPA.
Value-for-money
The tuition fees for my course is 10k per year and it's fully valuable. The sort of education we get here is both personality and mentally oriented.
Campus Life
Campus Life is at its best as it is in the foothills of Himalayan range and Kanchenjunga mountain is visible many a times in winter season. Campus is of 165 acres and suits good to your eyes also.
Anything Else
You can stay well when you get a peaceful environment and a good support system. You get both here as there is both scenic beauty of mountains and tea gardens and hence you get a peaceful environment to arm and grow.

College Infrastructure
It has a poor infrastructure,infact we don't have AC in auditorium, though computer lab are equipped with sufficient pc but minor them don't work,remained damaged for a long time,cost of leaving is quiet low, hostel contains free WiFi(can be used during lab),infact college too, plenty exposure for sports,class rooms are good enough and clean, mechanical workshop also occurre with care, College buildings are new
Academics
For mechanical engineering and information technology department teachers are student friendly, computer science departmental teachers teaches us well like concepts of dsa(data structures algorithm),and the main thing you will find many friendly seniors will help you in competitive coding which is the part and parcel for getting dream job.Several workshop seminars happens frequently for strengthening the skills and making students aware that what exactly industry needs from a fresher.
Placements
To speak frankly it is a tier 3 college so placement is decent for non core department only.Average package offered is 3.2 lpa-3.5 lpa(mass recruiter like cognizant,tcs visit campus).But near around 20 students every year cracked dream packages.2 seniors are interning at Amazon and one of them got placement offer from media.net.2 cracked tcs digital,PWC.we have our aluminies in apple, Qualcomm,but when it comes to core department it is poor 2-4 company visit not with decent salary.
Value-for-money
Several scholarship program are available,since it is a government college so it is the cost effective place to study.The cost of 4 years is 1 lakh 60 thousands which is quite low comparing to other semi government, Private colleges.besides tfw scheme is available for economically backward students.
Campus Life
Jgec (jalpaiguri government engineering college)offers a charming campus life.our tech fest SRISTI , cultural fest JECKLET makes North Bengal unique and delighted.anual sports, helpful students seniors, gymnastics, The local people here are helpful to strangers,LH(Ladies Hostel) is safe and secure.The north Bengal is quiet rural and undeveloped.M tech hostel is not ready it is under construction.
Anything Else
Join if you are getting non core department and want to enjoy hostel life.a good coding atmosphere and competition are available.So,in a nutshell you can get a bachelor degree in low amount.4 years will spend watching natural beauty of north Bengal.

College Infrastructure
Though, Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College is one of the oldest Colleges in West Bengal, it's infrastructure is good. Classrooms are well equipped. Teachers are well educated. Labs are also good in condition. College library is not sufficient enough. But, department library is satisfactory. Wi-fi is available in hostel campus. College premises are cleaned in regular interval. The hostel Life is full of enjoyment.
Academics
If you really passionate at core branches, you go for it. Otherwise, placement of non core branches is satisfactory. As it is a Government College, quality of teaching is not so good. But, the newly revised syllabus is sufficient for competitive exams. If you truly passionate about what you study, you should not worry about job.
Placements
Placement of core branches is not good. Some are placed in IT sector. Some are jobless. Placement of CSE, IT, ECE is good. But, salary is not high. Most of it around 20K. Obviously, it's not our dream job.
Value-for-money
Being a Government Engineering College, fee structure is very nominal. What you have to pay is very less than private colleges. If you have no any other choice, you go for it.
Campus Life
After admitting in Jalpaiguri Government Engineering College, you will get a crowdy campus life. It's location is in remote area. It has a greeny campus, pleasent weather. Teachers are also helpful, if you need them.
Anything Else
Overall, it is a good college in West Bengal. In spite of it's location, you should not regret for it.

College Infrastructure
As it is a government engineering college and also an old one, the infrastructure is weak as compared to other colleges. It consists of a huge campus which contains 5 hostels, 4 hostels for boys and 1 hostel for girls. The hostels are equipped with the high-speed LAN connection for students to learn on their own and grow.
Academics
There are total 6 deperment. All are good with lab facility and workshops . Teachers are also qualified and good. Civil department is one of the oldest and labs and surveys are conducted.Regular class starts at 10:00 am and ends at 5:00 pm with an interval of 1 hour in between 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.
Placements
50 percent of the last batch getting on-campus placements. The companies which offered them jobs were Shapoorji Pallonji Construction Limited, tata Consultancy Services, Cognizant, IBM, Dell, Tech Mahindra, Honeywell, Thoughtworks, Idea, Bharat Electronics Limited, Simplex, Deloitte, Ashiyana Housing etc. Rest 30 percent were placed in off-campus drives or pool selections. The highest package provided on campus was 5.4 LPA and the lowest was 3.6 LPA with an average of around 4.2 LPA.
Value-for-money
The total fee required for a year is Rs. 47,400 . This is very less as it is a government college. Value for money is worth here.
Campus Life
Campus life is very cool. Several tech fests and cultural fests take place. Teachers are very supportive and knowledgeable. Students cooperate with each other. There are security guards in the whole campus.
Anything Else
Studying civil engineering in jgec is one of the best experiences.

You will get some excellent faculties in core branches of this college. You will get ample time to prepare for higher studies exams. Rigorous classes and labs are taken in between 4th to 7th sem in any core branches. Getting above 8.5 cgpa is tough as this college is autonomous which means question papers are set by Professors and checked by them also. Dont opt for it and ece dept of this college right now as condition is bad there though future improvements are very expected. Electrical and mechanical are the best branches of this college. Civil is a very reputated branch here and cse is doing pretty good nowadays.
