Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electrical Communication Engineering) : 80 answered questions


Ques. Which one would be better: production in Jadavpur university, power in Jadavpur university, mechanical in Jalpaiguri, or government engineering or mechanical in Kalyani govt. engineering?

● Top Answer By Prerona Datta on 22 Oct 21

Ans. Choose the course that interests you, college is a secondary thing. Here are some of the facts that may help you in choosing the right branch for you. If you want to work in PSUs or Govt. sectors, it’s better to not choose Production Engineering as there are fewer recruiters. Jadavpur is the best college you can get through WBJEE. If you choose Production or Power in JU, you will have good on-campus job opportunities. Production Engineering is a branch of Mechanical Engineering itself. The syllabus will be more or less the same.  Mechanical at Kalyani University will be slightly better than Jalpaiguri. You may not get lucrative job packages at on-campus placement from Kalyani University but in the long run, you will have a much better hold with your Mechanical degree. You can expect well-paid jobs in the future.  Your future will depend on the branch you are choosing so choose according to your interest. All these Universities will offer you enough opportunities and resources to prosper. It’s up to you to use that well. Read more

In this college, there will be no annual fest and no tech fest and if any cases it occurs very rarely so in this college there is no celebration. The availability of the book and journal in the library is more than 10000 box and 5000 plus journal are present in the library. The Amenities in classroom are kept very clean and new weekly once the floors are washed and kept it clean and neat. Yearly once the sports competition will come and the event name is "NEXAS" this event will be conducted yearly once and many colleges in Pondicherry will be participating in this sports event. Based on the department there will be many clubs are there they are robotics club, social welfare club will be presented based on the department.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I have chosen this course because I love to read more about electronics and core and I like to read moring about electronics and communication engineering. Faculty are good and they will help in any situation and during the University exam. They will help by giving notes and they will also clear the doubts of the students at any time and any day. And the student's ratio is about Normal compared to another college. There was totally 5 exam will be conducted in between the University exam they are Internal exam 1, internal exam 2, Internal exam 3, pre model, model and then university exam then it was very easy to pass in university exam because lot of exam will be written before University exam.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

The fees hike policy is about two types they are one through centac and another through management. If a Pearson goes through contact the yearly fees will be about 58000 and for four years it will be around 3 lakhs and for management seats, it will be around 90000 per year and donation will be collected from them and for four it will be around 5 lakhs.
