Placement Experience

8/10

Students are eligible for placement from 3rd year (B.Tech) and 4th year (B.Arch). However, B.Arch students often do not opt for campus placements which are generic. They usually seek employment options themselves outside. Yet, the average placements in IIEST is impressive, the highest even reaching 40LPA for a select few. I haven't opted for campus placements. I am going to seek a job in Delhi or Mumbai (hubs for good architectural practice) followed by higher studies after the requisite experience.

Remarks

IIEST Shibpur is a central university and the oldest Architecture degree providing college of the country. The reviews of the college were exceptional, even on CollegeDunia which I religiously followed. I also consulted a few then students of the college to understand whether or not attending this college would be a good decision. Besides, the campus is just 3-4 km away from Kolkata City and had all amenities, including a residential campus. This was my reason for attending this college.

Remarks

I researched about the institute as much as I could. Wikipedia, you tube, and other websites like collegedunia etc. One of the major reasons was the NIRF ranking. The institute was ranked 21 in 2018, 19 in 2019 and now is ranked 21 in 2020. Had a decent placement package and placement percentage. I loved the campus of the university as well. It had a lush green campus and a great number of operating and new clubs. Had great sports facilities too.d by the institute and the clubs of the institute, biggest of which is REBECA, the cultural fest of IIEST, Shibpur. Others are Instruo,TedXIIESTShibpur, Oitokaan which are the big ones, and a few other events which are not as big. Also all the departmental fests.

The main reason that I joined this college is for Aerospace Engineering branch which is available in very limited colleges in India. The admission process is through JEE Mains. My rank was around 5900 so it was easy to get into this college.

Placement Experience

Students can sit for placements after registering with the TnP (Training and Placement Cell) with the help of their departmental heads and year representatives. However, for Architecture Department, the placement opportunities are the same as Engineering students. In short, you can opt for placements in IT companies (if they are interested in hiring you), but architectural firms never come to the college for hiring students. Although campus placements are frail for Architecture students, they can easily land jobs in firms of their choice because of the great alumni network, the reputation that IIEST holds and with the help of their faculty members.

Remarks

IIEST Shibpur is the oldest degree-awarding Architecture institute in the country. I was aware of the eminence of the institution with respect to the various courses it offers in engineering, science and architecture for quite a long time. Therefore, when I got a chance to get admitted into the institute, I simply did not want to lose it. The college admits students into the Department of Architecture for UG courses through JEE Main Scores (B.Arch Paper II). After all rounds of counselling are over and the student has frozen his choice, the student has to appear for physical counselling as well as admission processes. If not for the pandemic, the processes are finished by mid-July and classes start from end of July. The college has a great reputation, learned faculty, experienced jury for reviews and, above all, a campus to die for. Architecture students must experience campus life at IIEST, which is something I am going to miss the most.
