The glorious 100 years of Government College of Engineering and Leather Technology
1919 - 2019
It’s a pleasure to embrace you all through this page. Government College of Engineering and Leather Technology (born as Calcutta Research Tannery) has stood above time in its approach to education and pedagogies. Education in the class room and service to the society spreads the Institution nationwide. Consistently, we have never hesitated to look into our deficiencies and transform us to an efficient agent of social change. Many critics would confirm that the College has substantially contributed to the process of National Development by providing quality education and thereby enabling the students to be globally competent. We have plans and dreams in the years to come. We propose to introduce Academic Audit for every department by external experts. This aims at regular scrutiny of the quality of teaching and the content of teaching. This will certainly go a long way in enhancing quality in education in accordance with the objectives of the institution and in serving society at large with sensitivity and commitment. We envisage, in the coming years, an interdisciplinary research in relevant arenas as required by the industry. The college as a state Government institution for 99 years has achieved many feats and climbed new heights. Education is not an act of acquiring knowledge but learning a skill to lead life and forming one’s personality. This is an ennobling process of growth. We have nurtured every initiative and we have stood together in facing the challenges in realizing quality education.
In all, we have made every effort to be sensitive and compassionate to the marginalized and the people in need. This has been unique character of Technical Education in West Bengal. I feel happy when the bright and talented students perform remarkably well. However what makes me happier is when a weak student from a rural background progresses steadily from ordinary performance to better performance, moving towards excellence.
This has been the inspiration for our journey through hundred years. We do request you all for supporting this institute in future too in every cause as before.
Wish you all very centennial warmth and best wishes from heart being sentinel of the institute.
