About the Institute:

In recognition to the huge contribution of the Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibur towards advancing quality education and research in India during the last 163 years, this premier Institute has been converted to Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur (IIEST, Shibpur), an Institute of National Importance (INI) by the amendment to the NITSER Act of the Parliament in 2014.

Established with a mission to provide the best platform for multidisciplinary research with integrated application of engineering, scientific, and mathematical principles, IIEST, Shibpur is the first of its kind in India.

IIEST, Shibpur started its glorious journey in 1856 as Calcutta Civil Engineering College and developed itself as the premier engineering college in the pre-independence India. It has been renamed Bengal Engineering College, Shibpur (B. E. College, Shibpur) in 1920. The college has received the status of a Deemed University in 1993 and subsequently transformed to Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur in 2004. The then Hon'able President Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam formally inaugurated the University in 2005. 

IIEST, Shibpur represent a new class of Institute with an emphasis on post graduate programmes and beyond as well as advanced research in many special areas. It has the distinction of becoming the first IIEST in the country with promulgamation of the amendment to the NITSER ACT 2014, assented by the Hon'ble President of India from March 4, 2014.

This Institute is presently enjoying the 30th Rank in the National Institutional Ranking Framework, or NIRF, launched by MHRD, GOI among all reputed Engineering Colleges in India. 

Admission: This Institute offers admission to 10 engineering disciplines including Architecture (All 4-year Full Time B. Tech. programmes except Architecture which takes 5 year to get the B. Arch degree) through JEE-Main with 50% student from the home state (WB) and 50% from other states. Except Architecture all students from all other disciplines, on the basis of their performance, may (i) change their disciplines at the end of the 1st Year (i.e., second semester) and (ii) may opt for dual degree (B.Tech.-M.Tech.) courses extending over 10 semesters as per terms and conditions specified by the institute.
