The University of Calcutta is an excellent place for learning. It is among the top 10 Universities in India. It has a glorious past record. The alumni network of this University is very large. The admission procedure for BTech(4 years) totally depends upon WBJEE and there is another program, that is BTech ( 3 year's Lateral entry or Bsc-Btech). I have preferred this Collage for the quality of education which is provided by this University. If you want to get an education from top notch faculty members ., then join Calcutta University. But here's a difficulty, that is the percentage of attendance. Calcutta University mainly focusses on your academic only. But the placement of this Collage is good.
All the teachers are well educated and most of them have done their PhD from IIT, IISc, NIT'sand other foreign Universities. All the teachers are well experienced. So now you can think about the quality of education. The CSE, IT, OOE Department are located in the Technology campus of Saltlake (CRNN, centre for research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology) and the JFT(jute& fibre) is situated in Bullyguange. The other departments ECE(IRPE, the institution of Radio Physics and Electronics), IE, EE, ChE, CT, PST all are in Rajabazar Science Collage. All the departments are DST funded.
I am again telling you about the Chemical Engineering Department. Companies like IOCL, BPCL, HPCL, BARC, ONGC, Tata Chemical, Haldia petrochemical, Asian paint, Berger's, Balmer Lawrie, IOC patrons, ADANI Willmar, Exide battery, Linde, IFFCO, etc and many others provide internships.
Before the placement statistics you have to Know one thing that is Calcutta University has started 4 year's BTech in 2015, before it, the University used to provide a Bsc BTech program for 80 years (approx). So, now you can imagine the alumni network and the reputation of this Institution in the corporate field. The average package is all around 5-6 LPA. I am giving you the placement statistics of my department that is Chemical Engineering. Among all Department in CU, Chemical Engineering Department has the highest placement statistics. About 90% of the batch is placed every year. Companies like Haldia petrochemical, Technip, Linde, Hindustan Unilever, Excide Battery, Balmaer Lawrie, Asian paint, Berger, Appolo tire, BARC, IOCL, ONGC, Diamond Beverage, Sun pharma, Pfizer etc, provide Placement and internship opportunities. The average package of Chemical Engineering is 5.5-6 LPA. And the other departments has also a good placement record
The fee structure for BTech is very less. You may have to pay around 32k in 4 years. Yes, there are many scholarships available in college. I am not sure about the hostel fees but it is a very minimum amount as compared to other universities.
Obviously, there's an annual fest on every campus of this University. Which is quite good not so good as the IIT's, NIT's. But it is very good. And the library is very very good. There's a lot of books. The central library is located on the College Street campus ( main campus). But there is also a well-equipped library in every campus.
From the 7th semester onwards students are eligible for campusing. Companies such as TCS, CAPGEMINI, INFOSYS, IBM, WIPRO, AMAZON come for recruitment. Students from all departments get placements from different on campus companies. Usually, the count of students getting recruited varies.
I chose the eletrical depertment because i was good at science and the core stream can nurish my career in the best drection for me. I alwasys wanted to be an electrical engineer, and moreover eletrical is used in every field. The faculty was good at teaching and they helped me accuring my knowledge best way possible. Qualification of the facalty was excellent and they helped in esvery way possible.
Now, I am studying in my 2nd year (Mechanical Engineering). As far I come to know that the college offers job opportunity through campus interview from the 6th semester of 4 years degree course and many leading companies such as TATA, L&T, SIEMENS, Infosys, Innocraft, Hero, Mphosis, Genpact, Cerner, CGI, Pinnacle, TVS, CMS, etc. come to recruit the students as per their requirements. According to the record, I think the placement of this college is moderate, i.e. 50% -60% students get this opportunity every year. Companies pay salary package as per their norms.
The placements are great, a lot of companies and organizations come for campus placements throughout the year and offer all kinds of roles for everyone's requirement. Also, internship opportunities are there. Higher packages go up to around 14-18 LPA approximately. And most average is around 6 LPA. Mass companies also visit for hiring many students. The percentage of students getting placements is dependent on course, computer science students 70-80% get placed by the end of the year. After getting the degree my plan was to work and get on-field experience which is what I'm doing.
Students can appear for placements after the 6th semester. Burjer, Asian paints, Haldia petrochemical, Jk tyres, Colgate, come here. Average package is 5LPA. Highest package is near 11-12 LPA. 80% of students get placed. I will go for PSUs through GATE and also will appear in placement rounds.
All semester exam is conducted under CCTV which good for students. In case of application of technology college authority needs to be more initiative for students. And I felt lack of industry friendly grooming which are also more important.
placement is also good . the thing is if a student is good enough to crack an interview he/she will definitely get a job. the placements were like out of every 100 students 10 got placed
The course is good enough to think innovative and creative. Practicals are the most important part of the course and you can find good types of equipment in the practical labs. I was in ece branch (ie. Electronics and communication).
