Technically qualified manpower is the need of the hour, and that need is best faced through quality professional education and training. I have profound satisfaction to mention that the founding figures of our SKS Group of Institutions, our Chairman Shri S.K. Sharma, and Vice Chairman Shri Mayank Gautam, have been visionaries in this field. They have provided consistent patronage to the noble cause of empowering young minds with technical education. The state-of-the-art infrastructure, the qualified and dedicated faculties, and the consistent and fruitful alliance of our collaborators have helped Bengal College of Engineering and Technology—the flagship college under the aegis of SKS Educational and Social Trust—emerge as the destination of excellence for technical education. The accolades like NBA Accreditation for our B. Tech Branches for two times, and consecutive five times felicitations like Outstanding Engineering Institute (East) Awards by ABP News – DNA and BBC, serve as testimonials to the above fact. Institute’s recent noteworthy achievements also include winning of top prizes by the students in innovative project display competitions in IIT-Kharagpur, IIT-Mumbai and IIT-Kanpur and many other national events.
The Institute mentors the students to not only emerge as committed professionals, but also proactive members of the society as a whole. The teaching learning process helps make decisions and create path that are good not only for them, but also for the society. Students are actively involved in NSS projects like health camp, social aids in villages and schools with differently able students.
It is an undeniable fact that engineering and management education have both taken a hit in the recent years due to various factors like inadequate placement, lack of quality education, cost effectiveness diminishing student interest, etc. But we, at Bengal College of Engineering and Technology have been able to pump a gusto of certainty among our students by remaining
focused on our mission, values and goals. Our focus on quality learning strategies set in accordance with Washington Accord, in collaboration with reputed institutes/organizations like NIT-Durgapur, Jadavpur University, IIEST, IITs, CMERI, DSP, ASP, ALSTOM, PCBL, Graphite India, IAF (Panagarh Base), have made us a well-synced member of professional learning community that pars the excellence norms of the day. The NBA recognition for four of our courses in BCET has helped us bolster R&D Programme, which has consequently resulted in wider IndustryAcademia interface.
Engineering is a creative art that needs the guidance of capable mentors. The active E-Cell in our college have given our students the right platform to put forth their knowledge into honing their entrepreneurial skills. BCET takes pride in achieving the highest echelons of the annual National Level competition held by the renowned entrepreneurial eco systems in the country, in tune with “Start Up India”, call.
Today, all the Institutions under the SKS banner have become trendsetters in the field of Engineering, Management, Pharmaceutical and General Education. They are class of their own in areas like Campus Placement, Global Education Opportunities, and overall performance records in national-level examinations. You can sit and see the world change. Or can choose to take the wheel and ride your destiny. With BCET and SKSGi, you will have that competence required to take the wheel, and shape your fate. I look forward to make your decision to join us a worthwhile and cherished one.
