College Infrastructure
We have different campuses for different disciplines. So the infrastructure varies from department to department. But overall we have a good infrastructure. The classrooms are delicate, equipped with air conditioner and projectors. Our libraries and laboratories are also well-equipped and well-maintained. We have a free wifi facility in our hostels. The campus, classrooms, and halls are cleaned daily. So we have a hygienic living space.
Academics
I have chosen electronics and communication engineering because electronics always fascinated me. Honestly speaking, the quality of teaching here is very good. The syllabus is being updated yearly so it gets better and better. The things that our university lags are extracurricular activities and tech events. We have to do extra courses from outside to make ourselves job-ready.
Placements
Our college started it's journey from 2015. For about the past 3 or 4 years, the placement records have not been well. But the scenario is changing. Our new placement officer has assured us placements from top companies. We already had visits from TCS. So we are hoping for the best.
Value-for-money
My course costs around Rs.8300/- per year. My hostel fee is around 1700 per year!! So yes, it is one of the cheapest colleges in West Bengal. And do I feel getting my money's worth? ABSOLUTELY. The faculty here is very good, the campus has the latest technologies, the hostel facility is also very good. So yes, I do feel getting my money's worth.
Campus Life
Campus life is average. There are very few options for us other than studies. One can go to the gym or play table tennis. We have 3 canteens where students and faculty members go for lunch and sometimes for chatting with colleagues. This is only for the Rajabazar campus. Other campuses don't even have these few facilities. But our campus locations are good. There are hospitals nearby to handle emergencies. The student-teacher relationship is also very good. So the campus life is average.
Anything Else
Our college has just started it's journey but yet it has marked itself as one of the highest-ranked institutes in West Bengal. Yes there are some cons but overall it is a good college. And I feel grateful to be a student here.

College Infrastructure
The college is very new and renowned. It is a very new building. the classrooms have ac facilities. Classrooms are clean also.all of the labs are very new. All labs have new equipments. And some new labs in advance technologies are starting to form.
Academics
The academics is very good. All the teachers have their PhD and post doc done. They teach very well and also help in clearing the concepts. They always solve our doubts if required.so in a nutshell, the faculty is outstanding
Placements
This is a major issue in our college and it needs to be worked upon very soon. Recently a placement officer came to our college. Some IT companies recruit through our college with a minimum of 3-4 lakhs package. But overall the placements are poor.
Value-for-money
In this perspect our college is the best. Our college charges around 3.6k each semester which is very less and overall fees is around 30k in 4 years of B.Tech. Exam fees is 500 rupees which is also very less. So compared to other colleges this is the cheapest.
Campus Life
Campus life is full of fun and enjoyment. There are 3 canteens in our college which is having WiFi facilities. The campus is situated in saltlake area from where ample number of buses and other vehicles are available. There is also a gym and table tennis room where the students can spend their leisure time.
Anything Else
Good college

College Infrastructure
College infrastructure is good. But there is no playground. Librarybis fully digital and we'll equipped with books. Classrooms are air conditioned for only 1st year. Labs are well equipped. I don't know about any sport centre and may be there is nothing like one. Hostels are not good and there are WiFi connection.
Academics
I'm in polymer science department. It's comparably new subject and it's a emerging field. Quality of teaching is world class but quantity of teachers are less and in 1st year most of the classes are taken by temporary faculties. Which is not good. Chemical industry in India is poor as most of the fundamental institutions don't have curriculum aligned with the industry and it's same for this university too.
Placements
Placement is very poor. This university doesn't release any reliable data about placement so there is no way one can say that what is the condition of placement. Being in the university we can tell that placements are not good here some of seniors also say that certain departments has good placement but that's not true. Average salary maybe lesser than 5 lac
Value-for-money
Per year I have to pay around rs. 10000. And total around rs. 40000 will be needed to complete a b.tech. So of course it's worth money. As we Indians first become a engineer then whatever we want. So to be a engineer the value needed to pay is nominal. And it's independent of socio-economic background of the students.
Campus Life
There is no ground in the campus for playing. But here teachers are very helpful and support us in many activities. And also teaching is world class. It's safe in the city of Kolkata. And emergencies can be handled easily.
Anything Else
This university may be the one of the oldest institutions in the country but its glory and fame has faded with time due to corruption. But still it's considered as one of the top university in India as nirf and qs rankings. So please don't worry about placement just like our ex-VC said that university is a place to study not to get a job. And you can search and verify this. #littlesarcasm. Thank you.

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure and faculty is very much concern about the students of all branches.Berofe taking any steps they always consult with class representative. Hostel is very neat and clean. Secretary office also encourage us to commit fest.
Academics
The university provides very good quality of teaching. Also Our professors has many working experience. Students can also join them in project work. Scholar also help us in our study. In some department,there are two internal exam to justify a student.
Placements
At the ending of course the university provides a very good placement with an attractive salary package. Also it provides the opportunity to all student for pursuing higher study in abroad. Also they provide start up idea to students.
Value-for-money
The university provides good quality of teaching instead of cheap cost. They provide the facility of extemption of semester fees for some students who can't carry it.
Campus Life
Campus life is cheerful. Many cultures and technical event take place in our university premises. It also provides free wi-fi,gym and a library wich contain many journal.
Anything Else
Department of all engineering branches should encourage students to join internship during their course of study as much as possible.
