WBJEE is really attractive option for those who are looking to do engineering in West Bengal. With top institutes like Jadavpur University under WBJEE, this test is really worth the pain.
Courses available under WBJEE
WBJEE is a premier engineering test in West Bengal and offers admission in a total of 44 types of engineering specializations. While specializations like Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Information Technology are a commonality in almost every part of the country, WBJEE also offers seats in some lesser popular or contemporary forms of engineering. These contemporary specializations available under the test are – Agricultural Engineering, Food Technology, Textile Engineering, Robot Manufacturing, Leather Technology and Biomedical Engineering, along with many others. So even if you are looking to have a degree in a slightly unpopular type of specialization of engineering, WBJEE will serve the purpose for you.
