College overall is quite good but if anywhere it needs to improve it will be its management. They can be a bit more structural and organised and work within time constraints.

Organisation has always been questioned by student Union on any delay of work or any discrepance in their activities. Results at time has always been a dream for every one at campus and that too without any flaws. Anyway, student power has been there for overlooking such activities.

Admission

Jadavpur University takes admission only through WBJEE. Before 2019 there was no home state quote, however, from 2019, the university added a 90% domicile system for West Bengal students. Now the admission process is quite similar to JOSAA. Everyone has to fill choices and then seats are allotted according to rank. After getting a document verification certificate from reporting center visit the university on the dates given on their website. After the necessary verification of the documents, all the original ones will be returned except the document verification certificate issued by reporting center. They will keep a self-attested photocopy of the documents. The admission occurs in July month. This university is one the best in India for engineering and its return of investment is awesome. You can check the Facebook page for more details.

Remarks

College management is very lethargic and I would like to rate them 1/10. They will make you wait for many days for hard copy grade cards, bonafide, and any other official works. Otherwise, everything from college teachers to placement cell is awesome. You will fall in love if you get the chance to join.

Ques. Which is better for a B.Sc in Chemistry (Hons.), St. Xavier's Kolkata or Jadavpur University?

● Top Answer By Pranjal Singhal on 22 Feb 21

Ans. The general preference is that none of the two colleges is a feasible option for pursuing B.Sc (Chemistry). The reasons behind this are listed separately below for both the colleges: Xavier’s is not a good option for chemistry. The faculty is not equipped in teaching in-depth concepts. They do not provide the requisite exposure for broadening a student's knowledge base. A general tendency of faculties is that they don’t recommend books. A huge amount of knowledge is gained by using internet sources which in turn makes them dependent on electronic sources. Internal politics is also an inevitable element of the campus culture. A lot of distraction is inherent in the day-to-day activities. Jadavpur University also gives very less exposure in terms of the knowledge base. A large amount of attention is focused on internal politics which hampers the educational and professional growth of the candidates. Both the colleges reflect quite a dismal picture for this particular course, but even if the choice has to be made it will shift towards Xavier’s Kolkata as in: It is the only NAAC Accredited A++ institute in West Bengal making your degree more reputed and acceptable. It will provide larger scope for better career options in the market. It allows individuals to look out to different personality domains of a candidate as it gives opportunity in the form of various cultural & social events. Overall, Xavier’s is a better option than Jadavpur University in every aspect.Read more

Ques. Which college should I choose between Jadavpur University and BIT Mesra for computer science and engineering?

● Top Answer By Kanu Priya on 16 Feb 21

Ans. Jadavpur University is located in the middle of Kolkata and BIT Mesra is located at the outskirts of the city. Jadavpur University has arts and science departments as well, so one will get holistic viewpoints. Infrastructure: BIT Mesra has more conforming buildings and much better food and lodging than the Jadavpur University. Diversity: BIT Mesra has got overall better diversity but the gender diversity is surprisingly twisted. The table shows a brief overview of the institutions: Particulars NIT Jamshedpur BIT Mesra Median Salary Rs. 19.96 Lakh Rs. 11.76 Lakh Entrance Criteria WBJEE JEE Main Fees Rs. 9600 Rs. 13.15 Lakh Placement: BIT Mesra -  The average package was 11.76 lakhs with Student strength of 120. In 2020, Microsoft gave the highest package of approx 49.76 lakhs and took 7 students. Multiple other top companies came like GS, Amazon, DirectI, Walmart labs etc. Jadavpur University -  The average package was 19.96 lakhs with Student strength of 60. In 2020, Tower Research gave the highest package of 42 lakhs. Tower Research only visits top 7 IITs and some very few good colleges, Jadavpur University being one of them. Microsoft took 11 students from CS. Various other companies visited the college like Deshaw, Amazon, GS, etc. Supplementary Examination: Jadavpur University is very good in terms of examination. Students can attempt multiple numbers of supplementary exams and the administration will make sure the student clear the exams and the supplementary exam fees are about Rs. 50.  BIT Mesra have introduced the year back concept from 2018 batch onwards. Supplementary exam fees are about Rs. 10k per paper or if the student wants to give backlog examination in the summer breaks then for registering 3 backlog papers you have to pay about Rs. 26400. In Jadavpur University, one might feel a bit of preference if the student is not from West Bengal. One will get sufficient free time in Jadavpur University as compared to Mesra.Read more

Ques. Among JADAVPUR University, ST XAVIER'S AND CALCUTTA University, which is best to pursue B. Sc. in mathematics Honors?

● Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 11 Jan 21

Ans. Among the three mentioned universities, Jadavpur University is the best to pursue BSc in mathematics Honours without any doubt. The classes are assured regularly and rigorous for those who desire to have a future in mathematics; there should be no doubt in selecting JU.  Comparison: (Winning Institution - Jadavpur University) St. Xaviers became a university recently. A BSc degree from JU holds more value than a bachelor’s degree from St. Xaviers.  Jadavpur University was ranked 196th in Asia by The World University Ranking 2020. The faculty at JU is top-notch. The syllabus adopted by JU is of advantage if you want to pursue higher studies after your degree. You will have better exposure at Jadavpur through regular seminars. Attending seminars delivered by guest faculty from distinguished National institutes, and your seniors pursuing masters and Ph.D. will make an immense difference. If you are choosing St. Xaviers because of the campus, you should visit the Jadavpur University campus.  The classes are regular, and JU follows a rigorous pedagogy. The political environment people talk about is quite exaggerated. If you don't get involved in campus politics, it is never going to bother you.  Jadavpur University contributes much more than just a degree that gives you quality education, which is not restricted to classroom learning. They make sure the students turn into the person they can be and gives them the confidence that no other college in Kolkata does.Read more

Ques. Should I take IT at Jadavpur or Calcutta university CSE?

● Top Answer By Meghdeepa Mondal on 11 Jan 21

Ans. If you want to learn about Computer Science Engineering or IT, then the Science College of Calcutta University is the perfect place.  Faculty: (Winning Institution - Calcutta University) In India, there is no other Engineering college or institute that imparts such in-depth knowledge in the field of Computer Science Engineering as Calcutta University.  There used to be a time when all three HODs of the Electronics Engineering at IIT Kharagpur/ IIEST Shibpur / Jadavpur University were Professors (MTech/Ph.D.) from Calcutta University Science College. If you check the faculty details of the best professors in Electronics or Computer Science in most of the reputed Engineering College in West Bengal, you will find that they are alumni of Radio Physics or Electronics department of the Science College of Calcutta University. In fact, most of the reputed professors at IIT Kharagpur/ IIEST Shibpur/ JU are from the Applied Physics/ Applied Chemistry departments. Placements: If you are looking for good placements in CSE, then after IITs/IISc/IIEST/NITs, VIT Vellore, BITS Mesra, or even Manipal is better than Jadavpur University. Here is a brief overview of CSE at CU and JU. Particulars Jadavpur University Calcutta University Median CTC 19 LPA 4 LPA Fee (1st year) ?2,400 ?9,094 Achievements - CU: Although people are trying to dismiss CU's contribution, it is the only university in India that has Noble Award-winning alumni, such as Dr. CV Raman, Dr. Amartya Sen, and World-renowned physicians Jagadish Bose, Meghnad Saha, and Dr. Ashok Sen at present. If you have the knowledge and skills in CSE or IT, you don’t have to worry about placement. With proper skills, you can excel faster than even IIT graduates.Read more

Ques. Which among these is the better university for BBA - Jadavpur University, Calcutta University or Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology?

● Top Answer By Supriya Kolli on 10 Dec 20

Ans. Calcutta University and Jadavpur University have become the main hub of politics and over time they have deteriorated. On the other hand, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology has been kept away from politics and therefore can be a viable option among the three colleges.  No doubt, all the universities mentioned in this question are top-notch universities and one can select either of them.  A comparative table given below can help in deciding to choose either of the universities: - Particulars Jadavpur University Calcutta University MAKAUT Accreditation NAAC (Grade A) NAAC (A++ Grade) NAAC (B++ Grade) Fees Rs 5.1 Lakhs (First-year fees) Rs 2.25 lakhs (first-year fees) Rs 48,200 (first year fees) Placements 58 LPA 8 LPA 3.8 LPA Both MAKAUT and Jadavpur University are good for pursuing BBA. When it comes to Calcutta University, students must be aware of the fact that it is very harsh when it comes to marks. One must prepare accordingly before enrolling.  Therefore, if one has to select a college they can look at the information given above at the table and after that, they can consider joining any of these.Read more
