Top 5 Engineering Colleges in West Bengal

After higher secondary examinations and several engineering entrances students are keen to find the best engineering college to study. This is an useful info for the students who are searching for the best college to study in West Bengal. Rankings for Best Engineering College in West Bengal is given on the basis of the current status of Academics, Placements and Infrastructure.

For the finest college race in West Bengal, BESU top the charts this time. Pulling their academics equivalent to IIT level is a huge task.

1. Bengal Engineering and Science University is a deemed University situated in Shibpur, Howrah. They have a great Infrastructure along with a brigade of renowned Professors which makes their academics very strong. They have a very good placement records as they offer array of engineering specializations (ECE, Mechanical, Civil are among of the curriculum). Till date they managed to place students in Core Companies also. After passing engineering from BESU, students get extra opportunities in research field as well. Their curriculum includes BE, ME, PhD etc.

  • Academics: 10/10.
  • Infrastructure: 9/10.
  • Placements: 10/10.

2. Jadavpur University is also a reputed university in India situated in Jadavpur Kolkata. They also have a huge infrastructure (2 Campuses) with renowned faculties in their kitty. The engineering division of JU is always a pride of West Bengal. Like BESU they also managed their students to be placed in core companies. TCS, IBM are among the companies who get slots for campus visit in JU. BE, ME and PhD are in their curriculum. JU has their distance learning also in which they provide MS and M.Tech.

  • Academics: 9/10.
  • Infrastructure: 9/10.
  • Placements: 10/10.

3. Institute of Engineering and Management is the only private engineering college which manages to secure the third place after BESU and JU. They have their campus in Saltlake Sector-V, the prime location for IT Companies. They only have 3 specializations for Engineering ECE, CSE, IT. They also offer M.Tech. Their 100% placement record is rock steady for past few years. IT Companies prefers to be listed among the major recruiters of IEM. They also some student activities on campus which includes Robotics Lab, Science Conference etc.

  • Academics: 8/10.
  • Infrastructure: 8/10.
  • Placements: 9/10.

4. Heritage Institute of Technology is the another private college ranked here. Their Infrastructure is comparable to any foreign universities. Placements are very good, thanks to their Placement Officers. They also offer 100% placements. Academic wise Heritage is good.

  • Academics: 6/10.
  • Infrastructure: 9/10.
  • Placements: 9/10.

5. Haldia Institute of Technology is the fifth private institution to manage a place here. Last year placement records made them a fine institute to take admission. Infrastructure wise it is good but is situated at Haldia (Quite far from Kolkata). Academics is good.

  • Academics: 5/10.
  • Infrastructure: 8/10.
  • Placements: 7/10.

Some other institutes are also there which are good to take admissions ( Future Institute of Engineering and Management, Techno India).

[*Rankings are for WBJEE mainly. If we consider AIEEE, then NIT-Durgapur will get the third place]

  • No grading is assigned for BITS Pilani of 9th rank, ,NIT Warangal of 18 rank, What is the relation between grade and rank?(for example; different rank is marked for same grade ) The basis of grading and rank shall be defined. Legend shall be marked. This should not be published without any clarity.

    • This post has a clearly mentioned title Top 5 Colleges in West Bengal. Please go through the post first before any comments. We are discussing about West Bengal not India.

  • you can go a good college for engineering college

  • With passage of time HIT (Haldia) has made a brand. It was established when there were only 7 engineering colleges in WB. Starting from a modest journey, it has made its own brand which is only likely to be stronger in the years to come. When all these mushrooming colleges vie for which IIT their students have gone, HIT folllows the footprint of JU and makes its presence felt as alumni take position in IIT/IIM as faculty. And it’s not only IIT/IIM, alumni hold faculty position in some of the prestigious universities in US (surely I’ll give names!)…Duke, Penn state, University of Nebraska (Omaha).

    The major reason why HIT will only shine because like traditional engineering colleges like JU, Shibpore BE College, it gives importance to the mother engineering subject unlike these new generation engineering colleges who set up college in a room with one dozen computers and start offering B.Tech in CS, IT, ETC.

    I do not know how many of these mushroom colleges have heard about research grant from DST/AICTE and industries which HIT has enjoyed over the years.

    One thing people need to remember, doing a B.Tech in IT/CS from these engineering colleges may fetch you a job however you will never rise in the company hierarchy since companies see institution brand value and this increases as you get your degree from old colleges.

    • sir i wb rank 80988 ,but i want to top engg college in wb and like branch ece

  • in JELET 2011 my rank is 176 (trade rank) in ETCE. plz advice me for best college with that rank. i am witing for ur reply.

    • According to Rank, try BESU or JU. If not available then you can go for any govt. college like KGEC Kalyani. Apart from those CEM Kolaghat, RCCIIT are good colleges to take admission.In this year FIEM Sonarpur holds a good placement record.

  • hmm…..is it really true dat BESU is ranked higher than JU….???

    • Yes. According to current survey it is proved that BESU offers more Research and Development facilities than JU. BESU has some good industrial and academic tie ups in its kitty.

    • According to Internal Administration also BESU is far better than JU. BESU has a prime focus for its Engineering department specially Mechanical and CIVIL unlike other popular universities

  • hmm….agreed…but why do JEE top rankholders make a beeline for JU rather than seeking admission in BESU…???

    • Because JU is older than BESU. JU has higher rank than BESU in all over india. Moreover the Alumni section of JU is very strong. Some of the alumni are now the VC, Director of many organizations. Specially the engineering department of JU has an impact over IITs and BHU.According to the latest research, BESU offers more opportunities in every department, domains and education. Soon it will be the no. 1 choice for engineering aspirants.

      • Correction required on the comment. BESU is the oldest engineering college in India (Estd 1856) being contemporary only to Roorkee Engineering College (now IIT Roorkee). JU was established much later (1955). However,JU is a five star rated university which is attributed to excellence demonstrated by its other departments in addition to FET.

  • I am not sure which research and development facilities you are talking about. As per actual research conducted on research in universities, JU comes 6th in India and BESU is 15th. (http://www.ias.ac.in/currsci/aug102009/304.pdf)
    In almost all departments (possibly excepting Civil Engg) JU is a few notches better than BESU (not a lot, but there’s a difference). More profs with PhDs, more research funding from Delhi, better infrastructure. Its because of this reason students prefer JU to BESU.

    However, I agree BESU scores above JU on two counts. (1) The internal administration of BESU is better and (2) the campus is more spacious and beautiful. More hostels.

  • Hey anyone there to clarify my doubt…???

  • actually me a student of BESU…so i can tell u with surety dat evn though JU is better dan BESU at present…days r not far wen we wil hav BESU topplin JU…howevr one wrng info given by da admin….BESU is older dan JU….it was establishd in 1856…JU was in 1906…!!

  • not being biased,i would say both JU and BESU hold equal level of potential…since i have studied in both the universities..its like some depts of Besu excel more than that of JU’s and vice versa.But all in all both r equally good…n somehow i personally feel JU is more marketed n more focused on participating in different national rankings n thereby keen on improving themselves whereas Besu last participated in 2005 n thereaftr kept themselves aside..so naturally didnt show up on the national list,which it truly deserved..but the internal story is that Besu is now gaining grounds at a very high pace n the day is not far behind when they wl topple JU…(keeping the would be IIEST at the backdrop)…n a strange fact..most of the BESU teachers did their B.E. from JU…n most of them preferred BESU due to its growth,infrastructure,research grants n most of all the much coveted IIEST status..

    • i don’t think so most of the teachers in BESU ar fm besu only some ar 4m iit kgp and just one or maybe no teacher is 4m ju in each depatmet

  • haldia institute of technology is the best private engg college in west bengal having best placement records in all sector of industry. So the students who are going to take admision in west bengal engg colleges surely take admission without any doubt…

  • Hello Admin. I’m seeking a list of top 10 Engineering colleges of west bengal for Computer Science and Engineering on the basis of their placement.
    I have ranked 5237 this year in WBJEE. Is B.P Poddar a right Choice Over Techno India. How good is this BP Poddar engineering and management college?

  • Hi! I am studying ECE in BESU at present.
    According to me,,BESU is better coz it keeps it’s focus more on core engg subjects through conceptual basis than jadavpur.i’m sure other than iit kgp there is no other insti in WB which has such regularity maintenance in everyday class attendance and labs than BESU.BESU always follows the IIT format in every aspects in its curriculam.there is no debate over placement of BESU students,its been always good.another plus point of BESU is that it has a large variety of halls & hostal facility for students including seperate hostels for both 1st & 2nd year students,almost 90% of its students live on campus.all this makes BESU a premier i& leading engg institution in WB & in India.
    but the main fact BESU lags behind JU is that its lack of popularity over various electronic & printing media.people thinks BESU is still infected with various ragging activities which is not true,in fact its now 100% ragging free.probably this the main reason why many people prefers JU over BESU.May the most awaited upgradation of BESU to IIEST will help to resolve this problem.
    Overall i can say if you are opting for engg education in WB,then there is no better destination to go other than BESU,Shibpur.
    thank you…..

  • Hi! I am studying ECE in BESU at present.
    According to me,,BESU is better coz it keeps it’s focus more on core engg subjects through conceptual basis than jadavpur.It is the 2nd oldest engg. institution in india(ESTD. 1856),only behind IIT Roorkee.It Has such a rich community of well established alumnis both in india and around the world.. i’m sure other than iit kgp there is no other insti in WB which has such regularity maintenance in everyday class attendance and labs than BESU.BESU always follows the IIT format in every aspects in its curriculam.there is no debate over placement of BESU students,its been always good.another plus point of BESU is that it has a large variety of halls & hostel facility for students including seperate hostels for both 1st & 2nd year students,almost 90% of its students live on campus,way ahead than any other engg. colleges in WB.all this makes BESU a premier i& leading engg institution in WB & in India.
    But i think the main fact BESU lags behind JU is that its lack of popularity over various electronic & printing media.people thinks BESU is still infected with various severe ragging & student’s political activities which is not true at all,in fact to be honest, its now 100% ragging free.Politics has been completely abandoned from the university since 2008.But the misinformation has led many parents to think of JU before BESU.probably this the main reason why people prefers JU over BESU.May the most awaited upgradation of BESU to IIEST will help to resolve this problem.
    Overall i can say if you are opting for engg education in WB,then there is no better destination to go other than BESU,Shibpur.
