Placements : However the placement scenario of the college is good, but the placement of the department is average. Average package is 3lakhs/ annum. Mostly banking and financial Sector recruits from this department, but students are placed in other MNC' s also. The internship are provided to all the students at different reputed industries. Students are paid a lump sum during the internship and sometime they get some pre placement offers also. Infrastructure : Regarding infrastructure, it is one of the best campuses of West Bengal with a blend of architecture and greenary. A huge central library with departmental libraries has well collection of books and journals. There are the latest technologiesogies driven computer lab for individual departments. There are several labs sponsored by government. Of India. Along with this class are well-equipped with audio visual technologies. In the recreation part two large well maintained play grounds with w swimming pool within the Campus. There is a huge auditorium along with some departmental seminar halls. There is a large number of hostel with nice accommodation. Canteen, food stalls, cafeteria, Stationary goods centre are present within the campus. As a whole it is a mini educational city within a city. Faculty : Most of the faculty members are well educated and experience with a doctorate degree. They share their immense knowledge both academics and corporate. Students can approach with their problem and they don't hesitate to solve their problem. Teachers used to focus more on practical and live experiment and provide opportunity to visit several industries and have interaction with various corporate personals. The student to faculty ratio is 5:1. The course curriculum are regularly updated with the current scenario. Other : College used to organize different educational, social and cultural event all through the year. There are several educational and social club within the college.

A Very Good Educational Environment with good hostel life and excellent students group to live and learn together. Faculty Members were highly qualified and taught us very seriously with devotion. Industrial tours were organized from time to time to give us industrial exposure. Overall a very rigorous education and training in engineering education.

IIEST is a moderately good college with a reasonable infrastructure. But yes, a more friendly behavior from the staff is needed since a university should be "for the students". Our college campus lacks a gd library which is open for 24*7. It should have a good computer center with access to websites of good, internationally recognized journals. It should also have better playgrounds. The engineering faculty is quite OK, but certainly, more industry exposure and practical knowledge-based learning is needed. We are mainly taught every subject theoretically and we hardly know what happens in reality.Industry visits are extremely important. College life for me was not so pleasing. Though mostly I am responsible for it. But yes, the hostels should have better atmosphere, better bathrooms, indoor games. There should be cultural fests, interactive sessions with students and teachers of other universities, seminars on interesting topics. I am not particularly concerned about placement but as far as my knowledge is concerned, placement scenario is not so good. I hope it will improve in the upcoming years. College professors are good in general but yes, some of the could have taught in a better, more interesting manner but again, this is common for every college in India. Yes, recently the student intake has increased and the college has become a little moe crowded but it's ok ! In terms of mess fees, tuition fees my college is definitely affordable to a middle-class family.

Certainly lacks the facility & infrastructure of a top notch institute (refers to my dept.-archi), and heard a lot of complaints from my B.Tech friends about the placement department, which I presume is true to a large extent, although the new INI tag will be able to solve the problem, hopefully. But, students here get one hell of an experience of the hostel life, senior-junior relationship is something we learn to treasure and cherish. Add to it the fact that it is the country's second oldest insti., the long list of golden achiever alumni certainly evokes a feeling of pride, and lots of age-old colonial buildings(still functional) including a runic graveyard, !

Beautiful environment and nice college

Lot of new things to learn. Beautiful campus. Enchanting environment. Facilities are good. One will definitely learn a lot from the college. IIEST can always be a better choice for students who are interested in research and after the 4 year exit option being launched, it would be a much better college. With its enormous history of over 150 years, IIEST is a college to be chosen without a second thought.
