STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

Marvelous but polite college.

Remarks -

Basically the college provides very good faculty and staff. The management is lacking behind in some aspects.But surely that would be covered in coming years.As per the standard of college is concerned there should be a swimming pool.The management about remaining construction is worst. The government has stopped the funds due to which the construction is stopped.

The location of IISER-Kolkata is very remote which creates difficulties in direct integration of facilities with IACS, Jadavpur University etc. I would rate it as a good college overall and it teaches you not just the coursework but also how to be a good
