TOP 5 ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN WEST BENGAL - IIEST SHIBPUR Posted on: 20 November 2023, By : Anil Kumar Yadav
Welcome back to the third part of our blog series, "Top 5 Engineering Colleges in West Bengal." In the previous parts, we delved into the academic realms of two prestigious institutions, IIT Kharagpur and Jadavpur University, uncovering the unique facets that contribute to their esteemed reputation. Now, as we embark on the next chapter of our journey, our focus shifts to yet another jewel in the crown of Indian engineering education - the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur (IIEST Shibpur).
IIEST Shibpur (Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur) is a premier technical institution in India, located in Shibpur, West Bengal. Formerly known as Bengal Engineering College, it gained the status of an institute of national importance in 2014. It is second oldest engineering college in India. Renowned for its rich heritage and academic excellence in engineering and technology, IIEST Shibpur offers a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programs across various disciplines. It has received the profile of an NIT (National Institute of Technology). However, since there is already an NIT in Durgapur, West Bengal, according to regulations, only one NIT is allowed in a state. Therefore, the name of IIEST Shibpur has not been changed to NIT. The institute is distinguished for its strong emphasis on research and innovation, fostering a culture that encourages creativity and industry-oriented learning. IIEST Shibpur stands out for providing quality education at relatively lower fees.
