January 13, 2010 in Campus News, JU Alumni

We, the Alumni Association Jadavpur University, Bangalore Chapter (http://www.jualumnibangalore.com/ have launched our brand new website(still in beta stage).

The alumni is in existance since 1980. We have already shown our strong presence by undertaking various social projects, scholarship programs. Now we are aiming to have an even stronger online presence. The launching of the website is only the first step to reach out to a wider netizens. We also have a forum for netizens to interact and grow the community bigger.

Every year we organize reunions, diwali nights, nababarso celebrations, saraswati pujo etc with great fanfare and huge participation. From last quarter onwards we have started publishing our quarterly journal Prantik.
The great recession of 2009-10 has made us realize the importance of networking and the need of a strong alumni. And so we are giving career guidance as our top most priotiy in the near future. We are also planning to come up with a “Bangalore Survival Kit” to help people coming to Bangalore settle down.

Please visit the website and get yourself registered for latest updates.

Feedback from Alumni (Taken from JUAlumni yahoo groups )

>>Abhirupa:
FETSU is causing trouble again. When will this end in JU? When will these immature students grow up?

>>Arpan:
the students for their limited vision. I personally have noticed such a response from the alumni over what is going on rarely. We as alumni should do our part on what is actually beneficial for JU, where probably we had earlier taken lesser initiative, after passing.
Net result, the same things continue, over and over again, and the academic culture gets affected.
Net result is, lesser known colleges are actually faring way beter than JU in terms of “Quality Placement Opportunities”, “Career Prospects” and not just a “job”.
The difference is what even I as a student failed to comprehend (except the salary difference) because of a lack in guidance from alumni. These factors must be drilled into the minds of our juniors, before we can actually expect things to change.

I hope the current students who are in JU, see the light and actually make use of the opportunity of being in such a good institution, without making a mockery of its limitations (faculty). The time when we could have said, “Having passed through WBJEE to get into JU, we can rest on our past laurels” was never there, and frankly, is a statement many of our seniors in the industry would hold in contempt.

JU used to be ranked among the top 10, unfortunately, even that is a story none in the corporate sector is willing to take seriously nowdays (despite the latest ranking based on 1 criteria, research by faculty & doctorate students only where JU ranked 6th).

Change is seriously needed, for the better, else very soon we’ll see the the even lesser known colleges in West Bengal overtaking us.

What do you think?

Jadavpur University ranked 6

August 26, 2009 in Campus News

IISc has been ranked the number one engineering/technology institute among top 67 science institutes in the country. IIT-Kanpur comes in at second place, followed by IIT-Bombay, IIT-Kharagpur and Delhi at third, fourth and fifth position respectively.

The ranking, published in the Current Science, has been done by scholars Gangan Prathap and B M Gupta of the National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources and National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies, New Delhi.

The other institutes within top 10 include Jadavpur University ranked 6, IIT-Madras 7, IIT-Roorkee 8, Anna University 9 and IIT-Guwahati ranked 10.

The ranking has been done on basis of publications and citations and research record available between 1999 and 2008 in the Scopus International multi-disciplinary, bibliographical database.

The data shows IISc leading every other science institute in the country on publications and citations.

The scholars have said the top 67 engineering institutes have done better than the university sector as a whole in the 10-year period — 75,166 papers vs 59,685 papers.

Their research has also shown that by number and performance (quality and quantity combined), IISc and IITs taken as a group lead other groups — University and Deemed University, Select Engineering Colleges, NITs/ RECs and IIITs. The IIITs are ranked last as a group for their low publications and citations.

Application procedure for a duplicate certificate from Jadavpur University

June 24, 2009 in ASK

Question: I need to know the procedure for getting a duplicate of the B.E. certificate from JU. Can anyone please advise?

The procedure is as follows….
1)You need to lodge a general diary for missing certificate/or marksheet to the police station and you will get a docket number.

2)if you have any xerox copy of those docs then contact examination section (Aurobindo Building, 1st floor) with an application attached with those docs, Else you can submit your application without docs which will take more time.

remember that General diary is a must.It requires at least 3 weeks to get your duplicate certificate from the submission of the application.
