Jadavpur University Kolkata
(Professional-Technical University)

Establishment

In 1910 the Society for the Promotion of Technical Education in Bengal which looked after Bengal Technical Institute (which later became College of Engineering and Technology, Bengal) was amalgamated to NCE. NCE henceforth looked after the College of Engineering and Technology, Bengal which by 1940 was virtually functioning as a University. After Independence, the Government of West Bengal, with the concurrence of the Govt. of India, enacted the necessary legislation to establish Jadavpur University on the 24th of December 1955.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) of India has identified the University as one the first five universities in the country with 'Potential for Excellence'.

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has accorded the highest grading and accredited the university with 'five star' status.
