Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST), Shibpur was established in the year 1856. IIEST was formerly known as Bengal Engineering College (BE College). In the year 1992, the College gained the status of Deemed University by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. Later in 2004, BE College became a full fledged University by an act in the West Bengal Assembly and renamed as Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur. In 2014, the College was taken over by the Government of India and renamed as Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IEST), Shibpur. The College offers undergraduate (B.Tech, B.Arch), postgraduate (M.Tech, MBA) and research (M.Sc, Ph.D) courses in different areas.
IIEST is located at Botanic Garden, Howrah, West Bengal. The College is 2.7 km away from the Shalimar Railway Station and it will take around 15 minutes for the students to reach the College. Howrah Railway Station is about 5 kms away and Kolkata Airport is 28.6 km away from the Institute. Students can take a cab or a bus to reach Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology. Prepaid taxis are also available at the Airport and Railway Station.

I don't personally know about these colleges but based on NIRF ranking and student reviews you can find that Jadavpur University is better than IIEST Shibpur . It doesn't mean IIEST Shibpur is not good , IIEST Shibpur is also an excellent college .
Here I am mentioning some points :-
You can compare both colleges here :-
see iiest shivpur has different courses like b.tech, m.tech, mba etc, however if you are asking about b.tech branches, top five branches according to placments and course curriculum,
computer science engineering
electronics and communication engineering,
see it depends which course you may enroll for, if you are asking about btech course on IT, kalyani university will be first choice, makaut will be second and calcutta university will be in third position. for mba courses none of the university is very good in terms of placement. through iiswbm is under calcutta university, but it placement record it moderate compare to other tier 1 college.
I would recommend IIEST anytime. Formerly Bengal Engineering and Sciene University(BESU) IIEST Shibpur, is one of the oldest engineering institutes which has now been upgraded to the status of institute of national importance in the year 2015.Being old, the institute has done well in procurement of a mighty alumni base which proves quite instrumental in placements and all.Its the mother institute of highly reputed IIT Kharagpur. That even adds to its value.Its a central govt. Technical institute now and hence has a greater degree of transparency in fund regulation and policy framing.
Talking about HBTU , it is one of the oldest engineering colleges in the entire North India and 19th enginnering college in the entire country. From the year 2017–18, i.e. from this year onwards, it would also be admitting students on the basis of JEE MAIN ranks only. The mother institue of 41 technical institutes in the state including IIT Kanpur. That adds to the value of the institution as well.Being old, the college has done enough to procure a mighty lace of alumni that has established the prestige of the institution in the industry apart from that among the common masses. Its a thing that always proves instrumental in placement drives of the college. But, the college administration is not that supportive. You will have an approximate idea of entire Indian bureaucracy by the completion of your four years if you opt for this college. Also, its hard to get good marks at the college.
Hope this helps!
