One of the best state colleges in India

Posted on 18 Apr' 18 by Rajdeep Konar
Batch of 2021 | BE Computer Science and Engineering
Departments have a handful of good professors while there are some who shouldn't ever be allowed to teach as they manage to reduce our interests in a few subjects to 0 or even below that. Classrooms for a few departments tend to be amazing while for others it is not. All classrooms do have projectors in them. While talking about the condition of the facility we should know that JU charges it's students about 200 rupees per month. Yes that is true. Jadavpur is mostly presented as a boiling pot of student politics where everyone gets involved in politics. That is completely untrue. Getting involved in politics is completely up to oneself and no one is forced to join. The relations between juniors and seniors is wonderful and they are always there to help you with anything during your college days and after. The afternoons are magical. Post lab addas about anything and everything while sitting in the field and the sky slowly changing it's colour is an experience dear to every student of Jadu-bonksho ( students to Jadavpur like IITians ) Placements in Jadavpur University is really good with about 90% placements in UG. Very many reputed company do come for full time engineer as well as internships. There is always a good bunch of students every year going off for higher education either within India or abroad. Research environment in Jadavpur is really good which gives it a spot in MHRD rankings. Jadavpur University has it's flaws but overall it offers everyone an amazing experience of growing up. It has one of a kind environment which one doesn't find anywhere and will always be eager to come back for. Thanks :) Here are my ratings: Course Curriculum: 3/10 Quality of students: 9/10 Quality of faculty: 5/10 Culture: 7/10 Administration: 1/10 Labs & other infrastructure: 5/10 Placement: 7/10 Apart from above ratings, I am grateful to meet some great friends and seniors for the lifetime. JU is not only a college,it is an experience which you will never forget in your life.

College life in short has been nothing less than a wonderful experience. When I hear from my peers about their experiences,it makes me wonder how come I have something Absolutely different to say. The faculty,the exposure,the experience,this University is a teacher at every step. Probably professionalism is something where the college can work a little more on.

College life is fun here. The ambience is very good. No political inclination can be seen They have the best faculty members and placements. Canteens are quite affordable. Hostels are also good here. Students are very friendly. Since it is one of the best universities in India I'm very lucky to get a chance to study here. All the teaching and non teaching staffs are cooperative. Excursions are also held every year. Even dogs are kept here,they are taken care of properly by the administration.

Being a premiere and widely publicised institution, Jadavpur University does not need an introduction.Over the last 3years of study I have realised that the name or fame of JU is not a gimic or any exaggeration hidden under the excuse of its history.The ambience and environment just lets your inner being roam free.You can lead a life of your own and absorb your best flavour from its air. You can be an irresponsible addict, lead leftist protests or bunk classes but if you can seek gold i.e academics, culture,leadership then JU offers it all. With excellent libraries providing world class journals, a wide variety of books, your brain can think out of the box. Every department is equipped with standard laboratories meeting the UGC requirements. Also each department has alteast 30 to 40 professors each teaching only that course in which they have done their research.The cost of studying is megre with students coming from poor financial background receiving massive aids. There are national scholarships, university grants and free studentships depending on merit and background. Sports, health, travel and book aids are also provided. Students have the option to access any teacher and clear their doubts in an individual session. Residence and food are available in the locality at affordable prices. Having said the above points, the last thing to add is "if you have that merit that level of thinking and that commitment JU will accept you open hands.
