Review of IIEST Shibpur - Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology.

Placements: Placements lacked in the department. Still, if you are eligible to do great, you can achieve anything you want from college, not only academically but also on other sides.

Infrastructure: Hostel food is quite good, and hostel rooms are normal compared to other renowned colleges. Our college infrastructure is great. Mess and canteens are quite worthy of money. Sports and games are the best.

Placements: Placements are average in our college, but as it is a national institute, we have expected more. I am not satisfied with our college.
