Remarks

This is one of the 9 colleges in West Bengal which are fully government-funded. I have taken admission in this college for exactly this reason. As it is a government college the fee is very less compared to other private colleges available in West Bengal. In computer science the fee is 6000/- per semester, for core branches, it is 3000/- only. Side by side the faculties are also well qualified. The environment is very good also. You'll love it once you'll go there.

Remarks

The scenic beauty of the CGEC campus is eye-catching with marvelous weather throughout the year, in addition to this, it is situated beside the river Torsha which is adding another plus point to the beauty of CGEC. It is situated in the local area which is almost 5-6km from Coochbehar town (which is quite obvious for a govt. Engineering College). To take admission in this college an individual has to give wbjee exam, according to the current scenario application form out in the month of October and in January admit card is issued and the exam is conducted most probably in Feb, and in April result is released by the board. The main reason for choosing this college for me was, I had got my preferred branch and the wonderful environment of cgec campus too.

Remarks

Because I always wanted to do engineering through govt college and this institute and appeared for wbjee and got a merit rank. Through counselling I got admission in this college and it is closest to my house rather than other engineering colleges. Being a new engineering college it is raising up it's reputation and education through its talented and experienced profeesors. So I got admitted in this college.

As an overall review our college is really a good one and since it's a new college not all the facilities are available. But with passage of time it will surely be one of the best colleges in WEST BENGAL.

They are really co-operative and are available for taking care of the students during almost any hour of the day. On account of being located somewhat remotely, they take special care to maintain safety in the hostels, especially the female hostel.
