IEM Campus-1
IEM Campus-2
The Inception
  • IEM was established in 1989 by a group of eminent
  • Foundation for prevailing academic standard was
    laid by Prof. A. K. De (former Director, IIT
    Bombay) who was also the Principal of IEM till
  • Prof. K. L. Chopra, (former Director, IIT
    Kharagpur) as Governing Body member ensures that
    standard of teaching and training is at par with
    that of the best Engineering Management
    Colleges in the country.

Some Key Features of the Institute
  • Socially accredited as the best private
    engineering college in the state.
  • Rated one amongst the top 50 management
    institutes in India by AIMA.
  • AIMA journal, New Delhi categorized IEM as A
    category management institute in India for MBA
  • Approved by AICTE, Govt. of India since 1994.
  • All B. Tech courses (under WBUT) are accredited
    by National Board of Accreditation, AICTE, Govt.
    of India.

Placement Records
  • All the students are placed in different
    corporate sectors even before the completion of
    their respective courses. Owing to the high
    standard maintained, IEM is enjoying 100
    placement record of students for the last 8

Some of Our Recruiters
Academic Autonomy
  • The Institute has full administrative,
    managerial, financial autonomies. But,
    significant academic autonomy is applicable to
    postgraduate courses. In the undergraduate
    courses, there is substantial academic autonomy.
  • If full academic autonomy is given, the institute
    will internationalise the syllabus to attract
    foreign students
  • With full academic autonomy, there will be
    enhanced number of market driven programs for
    national students

Faculty Staff Development
  • The Institute started FSD since its inception,
    much prior to starting of TEQIP
  • Institute has identified its thrust areas for
    training by discussion with BOG, Industry ,
    Distinguished Academicians and Faculty Council
    after having a thorough SWOT analysis
  • Microelectronics VLSI design, Robotics,
    Networking, Operating Systems etc. are some
    identified thrust areas of the Institute
  • Institute has identified JU, CU, BESU and IITs
    as important institutions for upgrading its
    faculty and staff members
  • The upgradation process as per the identified
    needs includes-Attending seminars conferences,
    attending short-term training programs, attending
    courses for qualification upgradation like M.
    Tech., doing doctoral research in collaboration
    with identified institutes of proven excellence,
    doing research and publication of papers etc.

Faculty Staff Development contd
  • The M. Tech. program of the Institute started
    under TEQIP does not require any visiting faculty
    and is run fully by the trained faculty members
    of the Institute
  • The quality of trained faculty is considered one
    of the best in the state and the institute is
    socially accredited to be the best in the state
    in terms of quality of education provided,
    discipline, placement records etc.
  • The number of research publications, books etc.
    by the faculty members have increased gradually
    in the last few years during the implementation
    of TEQIP

Visit to National University of
Singapore January, 2008
World Congress on Engineering, Imperial College,
UK, 2008.
Suggestions for Improvement of Networking
  • Sharing of Expertise Interaction between peer
    groups in academics industry should be
    increased with more no. of joint programs
  • Sharing of Specialised Physical Resources RD
    activities and sponsored projects should be
    stressed upon for increased sharing of
    specialised resources
  • Student-centered Activities More number of
    activities involving the students should be
    planned executed so that students from other
    institutes can participate and interact.
  • A national level program on Robotics was
    organised where there were more than 5000
    students from over 120 institutions across India.
    Such programs are also encouraged in future.

Functioning Utilisation of Purchased Equipment
Civil Works
  • All civil works have been completed. No fund is
    required from other sources to meet up the
    expenditure for civil works under TEQIP.
  • In the present program, 35 laboratories are
    upgraded and 5 new laboratories have been set up
    as per CIP. All the equipment purchases were done
    as per the need and priority basis. Therefore,
    all of them are properly installed and fully
  • There are some common facilities like Central
    Computer Lab, Microprocessor Lab etc. which are
    shared by different departments. A large number
    of short-term courses, training programs,
    finishing school etc. activities are regularly
    held where these improved facilities are utilised
    to the fullest extent.
  • The equipment purchased under TEQIP is triggering
    newer research interests among the younger
    faculty members. A lot of new short long-term
    courses are also being planned and implemented
    for IRG.

Performance on Key Indicators
  • Academic Outputs
  • Increase in research publications
    2004 2008

  • a) In refereed journals 02

  • b) In conferences 04
  • Patent One joint patent (with JU) has been
    obtained in the area of Microstrip Antenna.
    Another patent in the area of Pilot Less Remote
    Controlled Vehicle for Defence applications is
  • Technology Development Robotics , Programmable
    Logic Controllers, Solid State Lighting,
    Microstrip Antenna Design, Compound Semiconductor
    based Optoelectronic Devices etc.
  • The first M. Tech. programme of the Institute in
    the area of Electronics Communication Engg.
    with specialization in Microlectronics VLSI
    Design has been started under TEQIP in 2006. All
    the passout stdents got jobs even before
    completion of the programme.
  • One of the shortcomings is, however, that we have
    only six Sponsored RD projects (DST, DRDO,
    WBREDA, TCS, Metro Dairy). We are however gearing
    up for more sponsored projects in the future and
    some are awaiting final decision.

Identification of maximum two best practices for
service to community
  • Generating awareness of energy conservation and
    green power in collaboration with WBREDA among
    youth IEM Renewable Energy Club in
    collaboration with WBREDA is creating awareness
    among the different cross-sections of the
    community (organised, unorganized sectors and
    unemployed youth) in the areas of energy
    conservation practices in different community
    related programs.
  • Participation of students in technology
    development for community Institute is
    developing different technologies (like RFID, PLC
    applications, Solid-state lighting, Adult
    literacy software etc.) by active participation
    of students (as final-year projects) along with
    the teachers.

Identification of maximum two best practices for
Support to Disadvantaged groups

    economically weaker sections Half full
    freeship is provided to meritorious students of
    economically backward class.
  • Special campus recruitment drive for women
    students on Womens Day Special recruitment
    drive is taken from 2008 for women students on
    Womens day. This year, two girls were selected
    by Microsoft and they offered annual salary of
    9.21 Lakhs INR.

Important Lessons Learnt
  • Change of mindset during implementation of TEQIP
  • Importance of Collaborating with Institutes of
    National International repute
  • Experience of handling a large project to the
    tune of about Rs. 8 Crores (TEQIP)

Review of Stakeholder Audits
  • The following points are significant regarding
    students feedback
  • The overall student satisfaction
  • Oct 06 79.5 (50.6 State average,
    47.1 National average)

    64.4 National average)
  • Satisfaction with Learning Infrastructure
  • Oct 06 74.7 (37.6 State average,
    38.0 National average)
  • Apr 08 98.8 (61.1 State average,
    57.2 National average)
  • Industry Interaction
  • Oct 06 87.9 (46.3 State average,
    39.2 National average)
  • Apr 08 98.8 (66.0 State average,
    57.9 National average)
  • The following points are significant regarding
    faculty feedback
  • Overall satisfaction

    55 .0 - National average)
  • Apr 08 99.7 (75.2 State average,
    69.1 National average)
  • In addition to the above, satisfaction with the
    library, community network activities,
    teaching-learning environment etc. are well
    appreciated by the stakeholders. The students
    gymkhana along with different faculty members and
    different committees take active part in
    grievance redressal in various areas. In addition
    to these, there is an effective mechanism of
    counseling of students as per individual needs.
  • During the initial period of the project, there
    was some difficulty in understanding and
    implementing TDP where the institute faced some
    problem. But, in the later part, it has been done
    effectively. The audit results are discussed with
    the students in the gymkhana meetings for further
    improvement of the institute.
