  Description :
Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur owes its origin to the erstwhile Bengal Engineering College, the history of which goes to the nineteenth century when industries in the sense we understand today, were practically absent. Prompted by the idea of meeting requirement of trained engineering personnel for the Public Works Department, the then council of Education, Bengal, decided to open Civil Engineering classes and a Professorship in Civil Engineering was created at Hindu College, Calcutta, in the year 1843-44. A College of Engineering was started by the name of Civil Engineering College on 24th November, 1856, in the premises of the Writers Building, Calcutta.

Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, IIEST Shibpur

One of the best campuses in India

the best campus in India admitting students through JEE Mains and even better than many new IITs better than any NIT. MHRD rankings got botched up as they did not consider the 4739 publications of IIEST (larger than even IIT Roorkee) and 12 patents in last 3 years. The rank of IIEST in 2015 was 13 in India (by US based EDU - Rand corporation).
