The best college in West Bengal after IITKGP hands down.

Infrastructure: It's a very old and prestigious state-funded university and that comes with its own caveats. The Classrooms are not top-of-the-line but are good enough to study. The Chemical Engineering labs are top-of-the-line and one of the best labs is the Membrane lab. Well-furnished libraries (Central library as well as departmental libraries) are also present. Jadavpur University is not a fully residential university and hence not everyone gets a hostel. The administration makes sure that the needy studen...

One of the best Engineering institutes in India.

Infrastructure: The library is very well furnished and vast. Apart from the central library, our department has its own Departmental Library. The whole campus is provided with free Wi-Fi. Our mechanical labs are filled with great equipment and types of machinery. But the classroom is not up to the mark of JU. Since the hostel is limited, so space is very little for all in the hostels. But one can stay outside in PGs or mess.

Placements: In the branch of B.E. In Mechanical engineering, the average placement percentage is about 87.4% this year, which dropped as comped to 94.8% last year. The highest salary in the core is 21LPA and in IT is 41LPA. The median salary is about 8.7LPA. The top recruiting companies are ONGC, HPCL, Airbus, IOCL, Coal India, Amazon, Microsoft, IRCON, etc. To name a few. Many students also grabbed internships in reputed companies like Indian railways, NTPC, and even research internships in IIT M, IISc, CM...

It is the best college in terms of ROI.

Infrastructure: Classrooms are very well ventilated and well-maintained. Our college has an average infrastructure. The environment of the campus includes lakes, trees, playing grounds, etc., which are very maintained.

The central library of JU is a very renowned library that contains almost all the books you need.

Placements: Jadavpur University is 115 years old premier technical institution. It always maintains its dignity in terms of both placements and research.

Excellent placements, low fee.

Infrastructure: JU has Wi-Fi facility for all students. Labs are present and most of the equipment are available by far I know. Like in our online lab classes all instruments are demonstrated using equipment present in the university. About hostel I have got less information but the reviews I got. I can say the hostel is average or somewhat better than average. But the best point is hostel and mess charges are extremely low and this makes it the first choice for me.

Infrastructure: It is a very low-level engineering college in India with 17th NIRF ranking in 2020 in engineering in India and competes with other tops IITs and NITs in a tough way.
