From the Director's Desk
Scientific knowledge is growing at an unprecedented rate in the earlier years of the 21st century. Discovery, scientific applications in technology and its development are having tremendous impact on the social order of nations and the quality of life of people. Growth in high quality scientific and technological research requires sophisticated infrastructure which in turn requires optimal financial input.
Netaji Subhash Engineering College, one of the private Engineering Colleges started in 1998 with 180 students distributed rank wise in four streams, viz. 1) Computer Science Engineering, 2) Information Technology, 3) Electronics and Communications Enginnering and 4) Electrical Engineering. The institute was initially affiliated to the Kalyani University and approved by AICTE, Ministry of HRD, Government of India and the State Government of West Bengal. From 2001 this college is affiliated to the West Bengal University Of Technology. The admission of MCA was opened in 2001 under WBUT with three years course along with the existing B.Tech. four years courses. Bio-Medical Engineering (4years course)was opened in 2003 and Mechanical Engineering along with Civil Engineering courses was opened in 2012.
The mission of the institution always tries to improve quality of technical education imparted to the students and also to promote research and development work in science and Technology. Our aim always thrives to become a leader of technical education in the eastern region of the country.
Academic performance (University results) of our students have been consistently excellent. In the first batch four students of four different streams were ranked first in the Kalyani University with distinction marks. This record continues till date with students of NSEC holding top positions in M Tech and in 2008 two of our students in B Tech (CSE, Rank Third) and (BME) are the university topper.
The placement record of NSEC during the last two years bears a hall mark in the professional landscape. About 70% of the total final year students have been absorbed with the annual of Rs 2.5 to 3.5 lakhs.
The students are guided by qualified teaching staff(about 200 including technical and lab Assistants). Faculty training programme have been undertaken by the institution with participation in and organisations seminars, conference, group discussion, crash courses etc. Our students are also very active. Some of the senior students have formed technical clubs, such as Phoenix , which lead to enrich this technological know how and also develop this personality in professional career through interaction and active participation.
The convincing development of the college has achieved sanction of four M.Tech courses (Control & Instrumentation, Power System, Computer Science & Engineering and Electronics & Communication Enhineering) which started in 2005. I believe that the institution still stands on a developing process and this development and progress in the result of joint effort and endeavour of students, teachers,staffs and management I wish, our students will maintain academic sanctity through discipline, perseverance and diligence of high quality.
Netaji Subhash Engineering College bears the name of our great leader of the country. Our Vision and Mission aim at giving academic leadership to the country. We strongly believe that our students, faculty, staff and management will jointly lift the college to a great height.
