Campus Life :

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.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

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.

Course Curriculum Overview :

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.

Placement Experience :

Placements are fair enough for cse/it and ece . If you are taking EE, ME and CI then you have to think about your self study because core companies are very less . And if some core company will come in that case they'll get very low packages. One benefits is that , there are lot of sales and marketing companies are coming in this college and they are offering quite good package around 7-10 lacs .

Campus Life :

Okay so every student wants a huge campus, playground, smart classrooms. Yeah you'll get a good campus here . A small playground,but most of the guys opt playing in the nearby parks . Classrooms are well equipped with projector, AC, duct. Every year a cultural fest and sports fest is organised by College committee, so someone can participate in that .

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Fees are too high in this college. If you are opting engineering then you have to pay something around 650000 college fees for four years. It doesn't include examination fees which is 2k per semester. As far I know no scholarship will be provided by college

Placement Experience :

The placement department is hopeless for the management department they try to invite some companies but according to my seniors mostly poor roles are provided and students tends to pursue their masters after the completion. Companies like TCS, Byjus, Paytm, Deloitte, wipro visits campus for placement and the average pay is around 3lpa. The alumni network is still growing not much to brag about. I think the placement team should start working hard and take the placement season seriously for the students.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course curriculum according to me can be improved with some corporate visits and guest lecturer beside that few teachers are really good and have mastered the art of teaching but sometimes it's a mixed bag, I feel like the management building needs a dedicated library and more practical approach while teaching, the course Structure is fair but lack any sort of specialization it'd be great if the university add specialization at the undergraduate level like in finance, marketing and HR to name a few.

College Events :

The campus life is a mixed bag of feelings we don't have acres of land, we've a building and talking about the extracurricular activities they're very few to be very honest and lack opportunities. We've some sports team and some other creative teams but the engagement there is very low. The fests are not that great either like I'm in second year and due to covid-19 I've never experienced any fest so far all I heard from my seniors is that the fests are pretty sad and not to expect much.
