Review for my Jadavpur University.
Placements: 95 percent of students are placed. The highest average and the lowest packages are varied for different companies: 35 LPA is the highest package, with an average of 10 to 12 LPA and the lowest of 5 to 8 LPA. The top recruiting companies are Google, Microsoft, Texas, Cognito, and Qualcomm. 85 percent of students and above got internships from the above-mentioned companies and also from ITC and others. Software engineer, business analyst, software developer, etc. are the top roles offered.
Infrastructure: All the departments and campus have full Wi-Fi facilities available. Hostel facilities are good, food quality in the mess and canteen is better, and medical facilities are also available. Sports and games are also held many times a year, as are prize distribution ceremonies.
Faculty: Teachers are more helpful and highly qualified and most of them are Ph.D. holders. Their teaching quality is excellent. The course curriculum is relevant but it should be more upgraded. It should be an industry but in a smaller amount. Semester exam questions are moderate to hard. Pass percentage is almost all 98 percent.
Other: I chose the Electrical Engineering course as it is a core department, has many advantages over other departments, is available for the IT sector, government jobs, core jobs, and many other facilities. The course curriculum and syllabus must be upgraded. Srijan, Sanskriti, and Convolution are the tech and normal fests held from Feb to April, and for freshers, the campus surroundings are full of trees, it is all-time full of crowds, and all government and scholarships are given to eligible students.

The department and the professors are excellent.
Placements: There is no compulsory placement system in the Arts faculty, although we do have a Placement Cell, and through that one can easily get information and be notified about placements. Most of the students go on to higher studies. Our department offers integrated courses, so if you are planning for higher studies in history, I would definitely suggest you join us.
Infrastructure: The Department of History is really outstanding. The professors and their way of teaching are really appreciable. Each department has its own departmental library, other than that, we have a Central Library, where one can find books for their courses. Students from a poor economic background get the hostels first. The hostel rooms and buildings are great. Hostel food is below average.
Faculty: The professors are really helpful, student-friendly, and exceptionally good in their jobs. Any student can contact their professors whenever they face any kind of problems with their studies. After understanding the topics properly, the questions do not seem to be difficult.

Jadavpur University has the best ROI.
Placements: The 2022 and 2023 batches were some of the best in our department; the highest package crossed 1cr+. This year, due to recession, the placements are off; the average package is about 17–19 LPA. Many students got admission in US-based universities for higher studies like PhDs, etc.
Infrastructure: Our campus offers free Wi-Fi, and the labs and classrooms are hi-tech and digitalized. The central library of our college is very huge and comprises thousands of books and journals. The hostel is a bit old and it needs some maintenance and good food quality.
Faculty: The teachers are very helpful; they teach in the best possible manner so that every student can understand each and every concept and can implement it in their day-to-day lives. At the end of our course, as the syllabus is well designed, every student is industry-adapted. It helps us very much.
Other: The electronics and telecommunications sector is a growing sector nowadays. 5G & 6G are revolutionary. This entertains me most. Also, our faculty professors worked with ISRO, DRDO and many more famous organizations, which motivated us to do so.
