HISTORY OF THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, NATIONAL COUNCIL OF EDUCATION, BENGAL AND JADAVPUR UNIVERSITY - DELHI CHAPTER

Bengal was the birth place of the national movement. In the wake of the British conspiracy in 1905 to divide Great Bengal, people rose to the occasion spontaneously and the popular wheel of Swadeshi Movement started rolling with unprecendented vigour. It was during this time -1906, the National Council of Education, Bengal (N.C.E. Bengal) was created to provide alternative education. N.C.E. Bengal was exclusively formed as an apex body to impart education in Literature, Science, Engineering and Technology entirely on national perspective. The original Technical Institute on N.C.E. Bengal was named the Bengal Technical Institute. The Calcutta Municipal Corporation under the able leadership of its patriotic Mayor, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das leased the present site of the Jadavpur University campus of N.C.E. where its engineering college was shifted in 1924 under the name of College of Engineering and Technology. Bengal (CET Bengal). Rishi Aurobindo Ghosh was the founder Principal and its founder father and teachers included Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore, Sir Gooroodas Benerajee, Ananda Coomarswamy, Surendranath Banerjee, Ramendra Sunder Trivedi, Radha Kumud Mukherjee, Benoy Kumar Sarkar, Sakharam Ganesh Deoskar, Raja Subodh Mullick, Rash Behari Ghosh and Acharya Prafullya Chander Roy.

The seed planted by these great sons of India blossomed into a full fledged university, the Jadavpur University in 1955 spearheaded by Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy and Dr. Triguna Sen.

NCE Bengal conceived, institued and promoted the Jadavpur University which became a statutory University in the year 1955.
