The campus life is the best thing about IIEST Shibpur. Since many opt for residential stay in hostels, it is heaven for them. The campus is always active and abuzz, especially after classes and during lunch. There are multiple activities all round the year which culminates in the Annual Fest REBECA and the multiple tech, literary and social fests like INSTRUO, OIKOTAAN and so on. The college library is heaven for bookworms. There is an impressive collection of not just academic but also leisure books. The best part about the library is its setting and ambience which can make anyone fall in love with reading and libraries. Classrooms are well-kept, and have necessary amenities like projection, foldable desks and storage. The college sees multiple sports activities throughout the year, from inter-hostel to inter-faculty and students activities. There are number of societies and clubs for you to be part of - photography, debate, literature, quiz, dance and what not.
Fees Structure and Hike Policy is completely as per the regulations of NITs and IITs because IIEST falls under them. Therefore, for my batch (2015-20) semester fees was 38.5k, whereas for current batches it is 68k (this depends on NITs and IITS policies). There are also additional costs in study because you have to (a) purchase stationery items regularly (b) stay in campus and endure hostel, mess and other charges depending on how often you go out to eat with friends, etc and (c) occasional case studies, tours and site visits. Of course, when you are staying in a residential campus there are other costs. However, you have the option of not staying at hostels and continuing as a day scholar. There are multiple scholarships to avail of by meritorious as well as needy students. There are tuition wee waivers (full) for most students. There are also multiple opportunities to work while on campus and earn a stipend of up to 10k (I have done this) every month.
The B.Arch is a 5-year course and the course curriculum is expansive yet very enriching. The faculty student ratio is very impressive, it is 2:1 for students to teachers in every batch. The faculty members are all highly qualified, with double PhDs and extensive on-field experience as well. The teaching methods encompass not just classroom learning but also occasional case studies, site visits, educational tours throughout India and multiple workshops every month. There are regular seminars and fora, about every 2-3 weeks for students to learn from professionals in the field and also reputed academicians. The term exams are held semester-wise (every 6 months) but the 'sessionals' are evaluated on a daily basis in the Design Studios. Although the examinations are not very easy to pass if you do not study at all, they can be cleared with flying colors with the right effort.

I chose this course because of the excellent faculty of the college and my passion for the subject. The student teacher ratio is excellent at 25:1. The faculty is highly qualified and their details and credentials are mentioned in the college website. The teachers are helpful and help the students to bring out the best in them. The college library is open shelf where students can browse through books and they are always encouraged to develop their own opinions. Regular class tests are taken to assess the students. Internal assessments are also held and marksheets are also provided. Regular feedback is given to students. The teachers encourage students to study throughout the year and questions are set according to what is taught in class. However questions also challenge the cognition of the students.
The admission fees with the quarterly fees is around 12000 for undergraduate courses. If the student selects any practical subjects like geography or psychology laboratory charges of around 700 is levied. The college is UGC funded thus the cost of education is reasonable.
