The Government of West Bengal set up an expert committee on December 31, 1998, under the Chairmanship of Ashesh Prasad Mitra, Eminent Scientist to explore the necessity and scope for establishment of an Engineering / Technology University in the state of West Bengal.

The University came into operation formally with the assumption of the office of the first Vice-Chancellor on January 15, 2001 as a sequel to the promulgation of THE WEST BENGAL UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY ACT, 2001, under West Bengal Act XV of 2000 passed by the West Bengal Legislature. The University started its academic programme, from July 16, 2001 following a Notification from the Department of Higher Education, Government of West Bengal dated June 15, 2001 through the affiliation of Engineering and Management Institutions / Colleges and has entered the eighth year of its functioning. The University is included in Section 2F and also in Section 12B of UGC and recipient of UGC Grant.

We are equal opportunity, affirmative action institution and do not distinguish on the basis of gender, caste, creed, and religion. The University wants to grow nurturing innovative / novel ideas that would touch all segments of the society especially the marginalized ones. We look at technology from a broad social perspective and are organizing postgraduate courses in basic and applied sciences. The University has introduced new courses in emerging areas to develop, enhance and higher education. We strive for optimum utilization of recourses and believe in unleashing individual initiative for entrepreneurial development without compromising the collective need.

The University is steadfast in its twin objectives:

  1. To serve as a Centre of Excellence in teaching and research in technology and management area.
  2. To provide a framework of industrialization based on the knowledge economy.

To realize its mission of emerging as a Centre of Excellence the University has created three Schools of Studies viz. School of Engineering & Technology (SET), School of Biotechnology & Biological Sciences (SBTBS) and School of Management and Sciences (SOMS) comprising presently of five departments viz. Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Department of Industrial Engineering & Management, Department of Biotechnology, Department of Bioinformatics and Department of Management and Sciences.

The Schools formed in this University would function in the same style as the Schools in Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. The Directors of the Schools ate taking steps to open up new departments in the Schools and the Departments are motivated to encourage inter-disciplinary research and teaching. All the departments enjoy full academic autonomy, and provide overall guidance in nurturing our ideas of development and help integrate disciplines to provide new focus. The SET offers B. Tech. in CSE and IT as well as M. Tech. in Software Engineering, M.E. in Computer Science & Engineering, M.E. in Information Technology, M. Tech. in Microelectronics and M. Tech. in Industrial Engineering & Management. The SBTBS offers M. Tech in Biotechnology (supported financially by Department of Biotechnology, Government of India), M. Tech. in Bioinformatics, Integrated Ph.D. Programme in Molecular Biology, Microbiology and Bioinformatics and Ph.D. programs in emerging areas. The University also offers an Integrated Ph.D. program in Physical Science and Chemical Science in collaboration with S. N. Bose Centre for Basic Sciences. The SOMS offers M. Phil in Management, Material Science and Glycobiology. SOMS has also initiated professional training courses in other countries for foreign students in collaboration with South Asian Management Technology (SAMT).
