About the IIEST
Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur (IIEST, Shibpur) started its journey in 1856 as Calcutta Civil Engineering College and emerged as a premier engineering college in the pre-independence India. It was renamed as Bengal Engineering College, Shibpur in 1920. The College received the status of a Deemed University in 1993 and was subsequently transformed to Bengal Engineering and Science University, Shibpur in 2004. The institute has been upgraded to an Institute of National Importance by the amendment of NITSER Act of the Parliament in 2014 and renamed as Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology, Shibpur. The Institute has fifteen departments of Engineering, Architecture, Science and Humanities & Social Science disciplines. In addition, it has five Schools and two Centres dedicated for imparting education and conducting research in interdisciplinary fields. One of the remarkable strengths of the Institute is the pool of excellent faculty members. State-of-the-art research facilities and other academic resources are helpful to undertake fruitful and relevant research at the Institute. The century-old legacy of the Institute has produced illustrious alumni who made remarkable contributions in different fields across the globe. The current (2020) NIRF ranking of the Institute is 21 in Engineering with overall ranking of 43.
