Government College of Engineering Ceramic Technology, Kolkata was established in the year 1962,
Government College of Engineering & Ceramic Technology, GCE&CT (formerly College of Ceramic Technology), was established in the Year 1941, by Professor Sasadhar Ray, an eminent educationist of that time with the objective of imparting knowledge and training for developing skilled technical manpower for serving the Ceramic and Allied Industries.
The College initially started with Diploma and Certificate Courses in Ceramic Technology. In the year 1962, B. Sc. (Tech) Degree Course in Ceramic Technology was introduced under the affiliation of University of Calcutta which later was converted to B. Tech degree in Ceramic Technology in 2000. Finally, in the Year 2001, B. Tech. Degree was introduced under West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT). Moreover, B. E. in Information Technology (IT) was introduced under University of Calcutta in the year 2000. Then, another new discipline in Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) was also introduced in the college, and both IT & CSE (B. Tech.) degrees came under the banner of WBUT from 2001. The College also offers M. Tech. Degree in Ceramics with limited number of seats. All the above courses are affiliated to AICTE, New Delhi.
GCE&CT is the oldest Ceramic College in India and one of the few colleges that has got the opportunity to be headed by people who have got international recognition. The college has reached its magnificence under the admirable guidance of Principals like Prof. Sasadhar Ray (founder of the college), a student of Prof. Satyen Bose (F.R.S.) and Prof. K. S. Krishnan (F.R.S.), and Prof. (Dr.) B. N. Sammadar, who did his research work at M. I. T. (USA) and worked together with Prof. (Dr.) W. D. Kingery (considered as Father of Modern Ceramics). At present, the college is headed by Prof. (Dr.) Asis Kumar Bandyopadhyay [Ph.D. (Sheffield), & Ex-CNRS (Paris)].The immense success achieved by the college has also been reflected in the field of campus recruitment of students. Presently, students of the college are already being recruited from the 3rd Year of their B. Tech. Course. The stream of Ceramic Technology undergoes 100% recruitment and that of IT and CSE has also achieved commendable success in recent years. Renowned companies like Saint Gobain Glass (India) Ltd., Jindal South West Steel Ltd., Essar Steel Ltd., Jindal Stainless Steel Ltd., Steel Authority of India Ltd., Grindwell Norton, MECON, CUMI, Tata Refractories Ltd. et al. have already arrived at the college for campus recruitment this year.
For IT and CSE streams, Sierra Atlantic Software Services, Assergent, Godrej Infotech, Tech. Mahindra, Tata Elxsi, Satyam, TCS., Cognizant, Connectiva (Kuwait), I-flex, HCL, MEC Technology, Wipro Infotech, US Technology Resources, Infosys, Sasken, L. & T. Infotech et al. have recruited students this year. The college expects an even greater recruitment drive in the coming years.
The college is under the Directorate of Technical Education, Govt. of W.B., which takes an active part in overall policy matters and certain financial sanctions. The college has recently gained autonomy to deal with many financial matters and the overall management is guided by a ‘Governing Body’ consisting of very eminent people from the industry and the Government, which is headed by a renowned industrialist Shri. S. K. Ghosh who is also an ex-student of this college. Shri Ghosh, with his right expertise, can take this college to greater heights in future.
Certain recent actions need a special mention here. Senior Teachers under the Headship of Prof. (Dr.) P. G. Pal recently visited several industries in Mumbai region and developed useful contacts for collaborative research work that will further create future job possibilities in Ceramics. Prof. P. N. Dutta (Head, CSE) with Dr. Mousumi Maitra (Head, IT) developed useful contacts with several IT industries, notably with INFOSYS, with whom we have signed a comprehensive MOU for future training of Faculties as well for future jobs for IT & CSE students with training possibility. The programme of EDUSAT of WBUT with Virtual Learning capability has already started in the college. Another new feather in the cap is the addition of a most modern Language Lab for English Communication Skill & Personality Development of our students.
Our College of Ceramic Technology was established in 1941 by Professor Sasadhar Ray who was an eminent and educationist and the first Principal of the college. At that time the college was named as Bengal Ceramic Institute Calcutta, which later on flowered into College of Ceramic Technology. Professor Ray was one of the pioneers in spreading ceramic education in India. He obtained his M.Sc. degree in Physics in 1930, as a student of Prof. Satyendranath Bose, from the University of Dacca having been place first in Class. He was a research scholar under Prof. K. S. Krishnan-F. R.S. in the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science and served as a supervisor in Peripatetic Demonstration for Scheme of the Govt. of Bengal to popularize the ceramic manufacturing processes in the villages. He also worked for a brief period in the Industrial Research Laboratory, Dept. of Industries, Government of West Bengal. The college started with certificate and diploma courses in Ceramic Technology with six other different courses to train people for various ceramic industries in the eastern and other regions of India. Prof. Roy organized a commercial Training- cum- Production unit at the institute to provide employment through practical training to the students. He formulated many developmental schemes with their successful implementation and introduced the concept of self- employment in the institute to cope with the problem of growing unemployment in the country. He was the pioneer in India to manufacture bone chinawares using indigenous raw materials on commercial basis and glazed pottery, sanitary wares, tiles and low-tension insulators from Gangetic silt. His contribution to ceramic education and industry has gone for and near within India and round the globe.
In the year 1962, B. Sc (Tech.) degree course in Ceramic Technology under the University of Calcutta was introduced in the institute, which was then renamed as College of Ceramic Technology and was undertaken by the Govt. of West Bengal. At that time more emphasis was given on Traditional Ceramics. Traditional consists of pottery including materials, cement, etc. and traditional glasses for windows and containers/bottles including crystal glasses and of course the infamous optical glasses for our eyes and cameras. Then came Dr. B. N. Samaddar as the Principal of the College, who was trained in MIT, USA. He brought a sophisticated touch of modern ceramics like Nuclear Ceramics, Space Ceramics, Electronic and Magnetic Ceramics, Bio-Ceramics, Piezoelectrics and Ferroelectrics by continuous enriching the courses with a strong emphasis on Materials Science.The students are carefully chosen through West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations and are given special training in Group Discussions, Role play and Brainstorming sessions along with their academic and careeristic development in order to sustain in the competitive world of business. Industrial visits and other Professional activities (Presenting Seminars, Submitting Assignments, Reports, etc.) apart from their course curriculum are also arranged regularly for them. We have highly qualified group of faculty members, who always develop and innovate new techniques of the teaching-learning process to convey their gracious knowledge properly to the students. Apart from the academic activities the students of this college involve themselves in several creative works games and sport and cultural activities though a number of rich cultural programmes which they organise regularly. Special emphasis is given on the development of moral character and the rich aspects of humanity of the students through discipline and able guidance. If is important to note that our college is one of the very few institutes where 100% students are employed through campus interviews by reputed companies, although some students go of for higher studies through GATE for India and GRE for abroad.
