JU retains top slot - World Bank-sponsored study schemes

Jadavpur University (JU) has once again topped among 11 private and state engineering institutions of Bengal in implementing projects under the World Bank-sponsored Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (Tequip). JU's engineering and technology faculty, following an appraisal of the performance of the 11 institutes, has scored 916 out of 950. Phase I of Tequip ends in March. "For the second phase, JU is likely to get the highest funding, thanks to the assessment report,' said an official in the state higher education department.
