The management could be more effective and get the students to maintain a dress code since at times the students are extremely inappropriately dressed. No strict rule about attendance makes students slack with their work and spend days bunking college.

Placement Experience

7/10

There is campus placement after completion of Masters degree. Companies like HSBC, Citi, Genpact and many more come every year to select the best minds of our city. The highest package is usually Rs 11 LPA and the average package comes to be Rs5lpa with almost 60% of the students been placed.

Remarks

Compared to the education provided the fee structure is extremely reasonable: Rs1235 during admission and Rs 950 per year for re-admission. The admission process was completely based on class 12 marks in our time. Now the system has changed and one needs to sit for an entrance examination. Before joining the university I researched a lot about it on Quora and was highly convinced about it.

Placement Experience

The students are employable after they complete their masters. The placements likely take place in sociology department. As I am an English student I don't know about the package but I heard it is handsome. The average students getting placement is high. I want to go to research after getting the degree.

Remarks

Jadavpur university has maintained his position of being a respectable academic institution. It has good ranking and provides better job placement. The teachers hold a lot of intellectual value. But, the admission procedure is very harrowing. We had to wait for a long time outside for the admission because the authority was taking admission for two departments simultaneously. So there was chaos. The announcement system of names during admission was inadequate. I selected this institute because the teaching is very good and it helps students to enhance their intellectuality. I know about this institute because this institute is very famous and prominent. So I didn't go for any web site or blog.

I don't have much idea of that as I was new to the college and suddenly this pandemic thing came up and we all are in this quarantine or locked-down environment. But as far as I know, the engineering depts., as well as also the arts faculty departments has this placement opportunity.

Engeeneering faculty provides good scope for excellence placements. Still, a lot of things needto be done to catapult a revolutionary reverberation in the field of campus placement. Arts and science faculties of the university need to ruminate about it.

I am from the Arts faculty. Maximum placement happens in the engineering and science faculty. However companies like Zee entertainment, Abp ananda, TCS have offered positions in our faculty also. Many have been placed in prestigious positions also.

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. Since Jadavpur University is a Tier 1 college, the placements are top-notch. 85 to 90 percentage of the students are placed here in different sectors like IT & software, consulting, finance, core, R&D, the highest package being 65 LPA. 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.
