Remarks :

Jadavpur University was my dream institution. Each and every aspect of this place helped me to grow in a good human being. Online notice for admission came out in the month of April. Online form fills up the process and written exam, interview, and admission process completed in the next 2month. From July class begin. The campus, departments, faculty, library, and every other aspect are truly amazing here. In a friendly environment, a student can beautifully build her/his inner and outer strength, broaden their thoughts, and enjoy each day of campus life. During my admission process, I followed the Jadavpur university website every time as it's always up to date.

Pros- Great environment, one of the most vibrant campus lives there is and there is a lot of freedom and autonomy about the space. people are encouraged to think freely and pursue their interests beyond academic aspirations. A lot of students have gone on to do wonderful things in completely different fields than their initial association. Great placement facilities ensure that you also pass out with a job.

Entrance Preview :

I took the Jadavpur University Department of English (JUDE) MA Admission Test 2015 in order to secure a place at the department. My score was 58.5 and rank 12 in the merit list. I opted for JU because it is the best university for post graduate education and research in Kolkata, the state of West Bengal and is also rated as the best arts and humanities institute in India.

Admission :

I got admission at JU through the Department of English MA Admission Test 2015. It was conducted by the department itself and has always been the most competitive admission test for entry into an MA in English course in East India. The notification for admission was released online around April-May and the application form was to be filled online too. The admission test was conducted at the department itself.

Entrance Preview :

I did my Bachelor's in Literature from the same University, but I had to give the entrance test for Film Studies as it is highly competitive exam. I scored close to first class, but more than the score, the aptitude is what matters. Jadavpur University is a natural option as it is one of the top three colleges of this part of the world.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course curriculum is one of the best designed to suite the future of the student. It is although not about film making, but of course it helps a lot to make films and get into film schools like FTII and SRFTI. This course does not only throw light on film itself, but literature, media, television and contemporary modern philosophy along with films of Ray, Ghatak, Godard, Hollywood, Bollywood, Truffaut, Kurosawa, Fellini and many more as texts.

Ques. How is IEM Kolkata? Which is better, CS at IEM Kolkata or civil/IT at Jadavpur?

● Top Answer By Anil Tigga on 13 Apr 21

Ans. This question is often asked by students whose WBJEE rank ranges from 1000-2000. Comparison - Institute:(Winning Institute - IEM) People supporting JU usually exalt their alumni network, brand name, and the fact of how old the institute is. Of Course, these things matter to a certain extent but the truth is that engineering at Jadavpur University is currently on a downhill journey. This accounts for the reason why their cutoff is almost equal to that of many new institutes. Jadavpur gives you an edge when it comes to ROI. Moreover, Jadavpur University is funded by the government so the cost of attendance is less compared to IEM Kolkata. But IEM Kolkata is affordable too. The CSE department of IEM boasts of almost 100% placement rate. The major recruiting companies are not only limited to TCS, Wipro, Cognizant, top rankers also get internship offers at Microsoft, Flipkart, Amazon, etc.  Comparison - Branch: Now coming to your confusion about choosing a branch, you need to opt for the branch in which you are interested. If you don't have a specific preference of your own it's better to opt for CSE as CSE is any day better option than Civil or IT. Quick Overview 2021: Particulars IEM Kolkata (CSE) Jadavpur University (IT/Civil) Average CTC 6 LPA 19.96 LPA Highest CTC 22 LPA 58 LPA Tuition fee 98,400 30,860 Overall CSE at IEM Kolkata is a better alternative.Read more

Ques. How is the faculty of IIEST’s CST department? Is it worth joining over Jadavpur’s IT or IIIT Allahabad/BITS Pilani’s ECE?

● Top Answer By Shreyasi Datta on 12 Apr 21

Ans. The IT courses at IIIT Allahabad are top-notch unlike CSE at BITS, Pilani’s. As CSE and IT are different courses and since you say that college doesn't matter to you it comes down to choosing between the subjects. IIEST Shibpur is doing great too in its infrastructure; placements and alumni base. The CST department has done great in the field of placements with 90% student placements in IIEST Shibpur. The highest was about 48 LPA from DirectI and the average package was around 8 LPA. Particulars IIEST SHIBPUR BITS PILANI IIIT ALLAHABAD NIRF Ranking (Overall) 43 27 103 Fees 5 LPA 17.5–19 lakhs 51500/semester Highest Package 39.12 LPA 24.8 LPA 20.83 LPA Average Package 10-20 LPA 12-14 LPA 10 LPA Notable Companies in IIEST Shibpur: Microsoft, Texas Instruments, Google (India, US), Directi, Accenture, Amazon India, Infosys TCS -CTO Digital and many more. Notable Foreign Internships at IIEST Shibpur: (HCII), Human-Computer Interaction Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, United States of America Mc. Gill University, Canada DFKI (German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence) , University of Saarland, Germany Nanyang Technological University(NTU), Singapore under NTU-India Connect Program Informatics Lab, Grenoble Amazon Google DAAD fellowship and many more. In short CSE deals with the scientific study of computers and its research applications but IT deals with the industrial applications of the same science. With the above information, I hope it will help you in clearing your point of view to opt between the colleges eventually.Read more

Ques. Which one will be a better choice, Jadavpur University in chemical (WBJEE rank 771) or IIEST Shibpur in electronics (JEE Main rank 11,680)?

● Top Answer By Keshav Jindal on 12 Apr 21

Ans. Choosing the college depends upon personal preference. If you have any skill for either of the subjects, go for it irrespective of the institute. Both of the institutes are good and will provide you with tremendous opportunities.  The table shows a brief overview of the institutions. Particulars JU IIEST Median Salary 19.96 lakhs 6.5 lakhs Highest Salary 58 lakhs 39 lakhs Fees Rs. 9,600 Rs. 5.36 lakhs However, if you don’t have a subject preference then here are few things that you should consider. Electronics as a specialization has got a booming market, which is demanded to create a lot of jobs presently. IIEST, becoming accredited with central status i.e Institute of National Importance, receives central government funding, as compared to state government funding for Jadavpur University. Therefore the infrastructure of IIEST is way better than Jadavpur University. IIEST now admits students from all over India, so you will get to interact with students from all over the country. This will boost your learning experience a lot. Overall, if you need to decide between the given two choices then you should opt for Electronics at IIEST.Read more

Ques. Which is better, IIEST Shibpur or Jadavpur University?

● Top Answer By Deepika Kunwar on 22 Mar 21

Ans. To decide which college is better than the other, here are some things that you should consider. These parameters include the following.  Ranking: If you check the latest NIRF ranking, IIEST Shibpur ranks at 43rd position while Jadavpur University ranks in 12th position among the other institutes.  Top University: Jadavpur University has got the tag of “University” but IIEST Shibpur does not have any tag as of now.  Curriculum / Culture: Coming on to the important parameter, Jadavpur University has a very rich coding culture. This has helped in brushing up the skills of students up to a greater extent. Placements: Jadavpur University has a very strong placement cell and this is the reason for their outstanding placement stats year after year. On the other hand, IIEST Shibpur has an average placement stat.  Accommodation Facilities: IIEST Shibpur provides you with better facilities. There are separate hostels for separate batches and from 3rd year onwards, you can choose a single room. At Jadavpur University you might need to compromise because all the batches get the same hostel. Changing Branch: One of the demerits of studying at Jadavpur University is that if you haven’t got your favorite branch after 1st year, after 3 WBJEE Counselling, spot round occurs depending on your WBJEE rank and that is the last chance to change your stream. Changing streams at IIEST Shibpur is a much easier procedure. Both the institutes are the two legacies of this state and they both have produced extremely talented alumni. Though IIEST Shibpur does not have high placement records as of now one cannot predict what will happen after 4 years. So, don’t choose an institute solely based on the brand value. Just see if you are able to find the relevant stream or not. To get into one of these institutes, you really need a good score in WBJEE.Read more

Ques. What should I choose. 1. CSE Jadavpur University 2. B.Tech + M.Tech dual degree CSE @ IIEST, Shibpur 3. CSE @ NIT Durgapur?

● Top Answer By Rishikesh Kumar on 22 Mar 21

Ans. First of all, never compare Jadavpur University with NIT Durgapur for the Engineering stream. Second important thing is, people usually prefer B.Tech and M.Tech students over the one who has opted for Dual degree program. The reason for this is dual degree programs are not valuable in industry or research. Talking particularly about CSE, Jadavpur University is quite good and even better than the new IITs and most of the NITs. Among the given options, CSE at Jadavpur University is the best option to opt for. You will enjoy your studies here. You will have a good range of research projects. You will get abundant internship opportunities from here. Although placements at JU are not as great as compared to IITs, NITs, BITS, and IIITs.Read more

"Jadavpur University - The Second Home"

The very first thing that drew my attention to this college was the atmosphere. People here are very laid back, yet perform exquisitely in all walks of life. The return on investment is genuinely astounding. The teachers are well qualified, and although there is an unhealthy air of political influence on the premises, it's nothing one should worry about. The canteen here provides decent quality food, and the classroom is air-conditioned [which is hard to imagine with the fees amounting to less than Rs 240/month. The laboratory has quality equipment for experimentation. The main issue with the college is the fact that it is quite unorganised. You're at the liberty to choose whether or not you

"Truly a great University with highest ROI"

Admission is through WBJEE rank (<3000) which happens during May-July.

Many students get internship offers and PPOs. Infrastructure is decent considering such low fees (Rs 12000 total for 4 years). Hostel and mess facilities are good too (charges are Rs 300/month approx). There is a huge Central Library, Blue Earth Workshop, OAT, free high-speed WiFi, good classroom halls and labs.
