College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of our college is really good. Labs are well-equipped with the latest technical equipment and Softwares. The canteen is present on the campus which serves clean and hygienic food. Medical facilities are present in case of emergencies.
Academics
Faculty members here are really helpful and knowledgeable and each of them excels in their own fields. They also groom us well. The course curriculum is really good and relevant. Students are encouraged to do various practical projects as well.
Placements
About 80% of the students from our course got placed in my batch. The highest salary package offered was 6LPA, while the lowest salary package offered was 1.2LPA. Top recruiting companies that visit every year are TCS, Capgemini, Promact, Cognizant, and Wipro. Most of the students got internships from the said companies. Roles like software development, assistant engineer, etc. are offered.

Well MCKVIE provides you with a good opportunities to excel in extra curricular activities if you really have interest. Else everything is pretty much normal. Campus placement percentage is good but the companies are just sub-standard companies. There is a club called rotaract club in mckvie, which provides social services. So if you want to be part of something good you can join. Other societies like CSI, ISHRAE are there. Also the faculties are qualified and some provides nice quality lectures.

The experience was overall too good.good infrastructure but less space for college, awesome library and lab facility,too good teachers at one side and the just opposite can also be found. Placement sucked for 2013 batch .The common room and basketball court are places for refreshment and spending most of the time.

Everything about it is fake. Fake campusing. Disgusting infrastructure.nothing's good about it.Steals money from students.Students become jobless and knowledgeless.time waste. people just come to show off here. Never join it. IIN is much better. backward syllabus, no big efforts by teachers to make a practical engineer.

MCKV institute is a good one as far as placement is considered. The faculty is good and very helpful. The college transforms you from an 18-year-old boy to a complete professional. The cultural fest and tech fest is also organized and all the students actively participates in it.

College life is fun and tedious.Balancing between the two is a highly difficult job. But, being in a college like MCKVIE, we are quite blessed enough to enjoy all. The best faculties are there to encourage and motivate us. Even the seniors are very supporting and allow us to pursue our ideas through different events.

I am kaninika basak from ece 2nd year of MCKV INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERING. I enjoy my college days very much. The faculty are very interactive. College arranges many project work and involves us to increase our experiences. Thus, we not only gain flexibility also we learn how to handle any situation. In the leisure time, we use to spend time in the canteen. The quality of canteen food is up to the mark. As I enjoyed my school life, I enjoy my college life as well sometimes more than that. Precisely, I 'll say that I have huge fun and gain good knowledge.

For more than 15 years, MCKVIE has been known for its spirit of excellence that transforms students into intellectuals, where faculty work with the students to engineering solutions and encourage exploration across disciplines. Critical thinking and networking are the main focus – on campus, off campus and after graduation. It has a very good infrastructure with the availability of smart laboratories. In our college laboratories are user-friendly and open to use at any time....As an engineering student, a good laboratory is really needed which MCKVIE provide us. Laboratory teachers are also very helpful and friendly and are ready to help anytime we students need to. Our college provides us project laboratories where we can do our projects, innovations, paper works etc. Next is our professors, they are very supportive and provide us a good teaching to make our concepts about any subject strong!! They are ready to help us at any possible way about the subjects. They inspire us to make innovations and projects and helps us a lot!! We also have a good library with every required book. We have a cyber library too which helps us to grab information from the internet. We use to have interacting classes which help us to know any subject in details. In every semester, we get special QEEE classes for getting a good basic knowledge of any subject. Apart from studies we have a very nice common room and canteen to spend some good times with our friends.We have a very good facility of indoor and outdoor games. Our college is attached with IET and ROTARY CLUB which helps us to construct our self both by socially and scientifically. Frequent arrangements of inter/intra-college competition and events help us to explore our ideas and innovations in a proper way. Our college provides a good placements in both core companies and IT companies. Though I don't live in a hostel, but our college provide a very good hostel facility too. Our college provides us a wifi free campus which really helps us in surfing internet. I am really enjoying my college life and its facilities.Lucky to be a MCKVIAN!!!!!

This college provides good facilities regarding members of the faculty, exposure to industry ambience, good laboratory equipment. There is a library stacked with books but sometimes they fall short of the demands. There is an annual fest organised every year in the month of April-May in which student get to exhibit their cultural talent and skills. There are numerous events organised around the Fest, namely Fashion Show, Antakshari, Band Competition and a few guest performances by renowned Artists, Bands. Social Initiatives like cleaning the roads, visiting old age homes, orphanages are also a part of this college. Placements are mediocre though, but once it used place 80% of the students but now it has come down to nearly 40%.

Positive Review Situated in the heart of Howrah, MCKVIE is a well-maintained and good governed institute among the top colleges of West Bengal. Having eleven different courses being offered, encourages a competitive surrounding and promotes innovative ideas. Having a better administration, this college well maintains the discipline. The faculties are mainly from top engineering colleges. Negative Review Placement cell of this college is not at all good. No core companies for core branches and students has to either go for higher studies or join IT sector. Training and internships are just names in this institute. However, the guidelines provided by faculties helps students to crack top entrance exams for higher studies.

It is a great place where equal emphasis on academics and co-curricular activities. The faculty has a sound knowledge of the subject they specialize in and stress upon practical implementation of the class knowledge. Apart from the studies the institute has good sports facilities with coaches and instructors for each one of them. They immensely support for intra and inter institute sports meet and competitions. The infrastructure is a great one with all modern equipment. The institute is soon to expand and enhance its presence.

The first few days were the most tense days and fear of ragging and stuff. Then all got easy..and the first sem was really dreadful. You never know what you are heading to. Second year on wards it is really fun. The exchange of books..the new girls in the junior batch..a few proposals..a few rejections...all become part and parcel of an awesome college life.. I remember the lassi days near the kachori shop..the fuchka near the Don Bosco ka gaali..some prized memories... Finally in the fourth year getting placed in Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. was the best thing..thanks to MCKV for giving such brilliant opportunity..

Mckv at present can be considered to be above average college,few years ago it was one of top good colleges of west bengal but still its surely going to get its old form very soon. The infrastructure is the biggest weakness of mckv it has a small campus but the other facilities such as library,classes,canteen are not bad. Every year mckv organizes a techfest and sports events which include tournament on 5-6 computer games, badminton, cricket, football, basketball and few other games. Major companies like TCS, Mahindra, Tech Mehindra, Ericsson, IBM, Eicher motor participate along with it many other local companies participate. It also conduct combined campus. It has it own groups like falcon and others. All over its not a bad college as long as one is not fit for technology.

College is overall good with some good faculties and always ready to help faculties........but unfortunately the placement is not that good.........it is easy to blame the management for this but we have to agree that the students also don't have that much knowledge and exposure to grab the job......just by studying the day before the exam and acquiring 8.0 pointer doesn't make us eligible for a job.......the college can arrange for placements but we have to grab it with both hands..........but i have to agree that both the college and students failed to do the job.
