Transport system is not quite good. From Ruby hospital,this is a huge problem for every day to reach the college. The only transport is auto and the number of auto is very less and there is rickshaw but very expensive for a college student.
The course curriculum is as per MAKAUT rules. The syllabus was good enough in our time of study but in this yeae, MAKAUT has changed the syllabus and create a new syllabus which is a dangerous syllabus for students. Because after passing out the students doesn't get any idea about all the subjects of courses and they can not perform well in job field. But a huge step has been adopted mainly by our faculty members and the MAKAUT has comes to a decision that the syllabus will change again in this current year. There is total four internal assessment marks in a semester which have to give by our faculty. In which one is unit test exam and others are class test type or online exams. The semester is conducted in may and December alternately.
In this current year the fees for 1st semester (admission fees) regular students was RS.72000 approx. The semester fees is on and average RS.45000 per semester. Except this the exam fees is RS.1200. If you got the admission in TFW quota then you have to pay Rs.39500 as admission fees which includes 1st semester fess and nextly Rs.1250 for each semester.
Basically the college don't have any scholarship system itself. You will get the Government scholarships like OASIS and MCM etc. One can get the student loan for admission purpose in college. I have got the OASIS scholarship in every year.
We all know about the civil engineering department of MEGHNAD SAHA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY. This is the 3rd college of Kolkata where civil engineering course was started (after Jadavpur University and IIEST). As per a very old department there are a lots of instruments for lab work and a lot of respective & well qualified faculty passed out from IIT,JU,IIEST etc. There have central library where students can read many books from the stock of above 50,000 books and the library is also a digital library so that students can surfing & reads journals,papers etc. Now if we talk about the games and sports, there have no such big playground for outdoor games but there have some annual cricket and football league and have indoor games like carrom,table tennis etc.
I have not opted any hostel but I have a brief idea about the hostel. There is basically two hostel in front of our college. One is Sahara Hostel. In which the fees is Rs.5500-6000 for boys and Rs.6500-7000 for girls. They will provide 3times food and in a room there will be 2 students. And the other hostel is BAPI Da boys hostel. In which the fees is like Rs.5800 for 3people shared room, Rs.6300 for 1 people shared room and Rs. 6800 for single room. They will also provide 3 times food. But the quality is quite better than Sahara Hostel.
There is a active alumni group in our faculty. Every year an Alumni meeting has been held. They help us a lot for getting the job and they gives us a lot of information. Very old Alumnis are connected with us like Alumnis of 2005,2008,2009 etc.
I was appeared for WBJEE-2016 and got a rank 9664. I was applied for the counseling process of wbjee. In 1st counseling I got this college which was 72 number choice of my counseling process. I got the admission in TFW quota. In this quota the tuition fees is fully off and you just have to pay the college fees. Except this process there is a management process for admission. And this process is applicable when there is some vacant seats.
We are happy to say that we make our B.TECH course under the teachers of MSIT. They are all well qualified and knowledgeable. The great things is that when we face some problem regarding our study or our personal life they gave their best to help us. There have so many teachers like Shankar sir,Sanjoy Das Neogi sir,B.G sir,Tufan sir,Biswajit Thakur sir,Soumya sir and others who are directly connected to some big project of kolkata like metro construction, municipality work etc. So they have a brief knowledge about industrial work. With B.TECH course there have also M.TECH course in Geology. There have a lots of students who was make a great rank in GATE exam and study in abroad for our respective teacher's teaching.
From the end of the third year, students are eligible for Campus placements. Popular Tech giants like TCS,Capgemini, Accenture, Genpact, etc companies are visited and approximately all students are got an offer. The highest Package is around 10 LPA and average packages are likely 4-6 LPA. From my department, around 80% of students got placement in many MNC. My plan is to get a good LPA job on campus after that to prepare myself for Govt engineering exam.
Campus selection is good in our college and every year also increases in the number of the company reach in the college. Average Packages offered by companies are 5 to 6 lac per annum. Students after 5 th semester,i e., In third year eligible to sit in campus selection. Each department's students got good placement each year. But chemical, Biotechnology/food technology, Electrical / Mechanical, and CSE department students got more placements capacitively to other departments.
The students become eligible for placements around the 6th or 7th semester. The T&P cell run by students works dedicatedly for placements. The overall placement percentage is 85 to 90 percent since many students opt for higher studies. The overall highest package was 65 lakhs this year and the median salary was above 8 lakhs. Major companies include Airbus, Texas Instruments, Microsoft, Adobe, Google, Coca-Cola, Mercedes-Benz and much more. After getting my degree, I aim for MS/MBA studies preferably in foreign universities through GRE.
JU has a wonderful placement record for students of the fourth year. The highest package is 42lpa while the average is 19 lpa.80% of students become eligible for placements. More than 150 companies visit the campus. While I plan to pursue an MBA degree by giving either CAT/GRE.
Entrance Exam. Close to my hometown and it was in a nice location and the college had just started its operations with the techno group. The college had a good faculty team an also good infrastructure. About the admission had to give an entrance exam and then the registration had to be done.
One more thing is that if you are choosing this college, then you have to be prepared seriously with the dedication to pursue here. Here, we called ourselves as GCELTians, and every one has a nickname provided by the seniors particularly for the hostelers. There are many technical festivals arranged by our college students, and many training is going on.
Every thing starting from fest to workshops and faculty teachings are appreciated by each of us and even improving along with the infrastructure in every year of growth. Studying in this prestigious college i feel very proud to shout my college name in front of students of other college.
It is a decent govt college located in the 6th biggest city of west bengal and 2nd most advanced city after kolkata. The placement is average here and extracurriculum activies are reasons which can attract you. The campus has almost everthing which a student want from gym to canteen room. Overall it is a good college to have a btech degree and plan your carreer. I urge all to have a positive outlook for this college.
