History:

The year 1906, saw a group of Bengali intellectuals coming together with a resolution to protest against the Bengal partition by setting up an institution with the aim of offering education to the masses on national lines and under national control. Thus was established the National Council of Education (NCE) in the year 1906 with the aim to impart literary, scientific and technical education on a national basis. Simultaneously during that time, another group went on and formed the ‘Society for Promotion of Technical Education in Bengal’, under the leadership of Taraknath Palit, under whose guidance was established the Bengal Technical Institute on the 25th of July 1906. The year 1910 saw the two rival organisations merged together under NCE with the Bengal Technical Institute passing unto its hands. 1921 saw the Institute introducing Chemical Engineering as a discipline in its curriculum making it the first college in India to do so. By 1940, the institute’s functions were just like that of an independent university, but soon after  the Indian Independence in 1947, under the Jadavpur University Act, 1955; the institute was granted a university status with full autonomy from December 24, 1955.
