Jadavpur University

The main aim of the NCE (National Council of Education) which was founded by luminaries like Raja Subodh Chandra Mallik , Brajendra Kishore Roychowdhury of Gouripur as well as Sir Rash Behari Ghosh  was to impart education - literary, scientific and technical on national lines exclusively under national control. Sir Rash Behari Ghosh was the first President of NCE and poet Rabindranath Tagore and Sri Aurobindo Ghosh also took active interest.

The NCE resulted in the establishment of Bengal National College which subsequently became the College of Engineering and Technology. In 1910 the College of Engineering and Technology, Bengal which was working virtually like a university was merged to NCE. After Independence, the Government of West Bengal, with the approval of the Government of India established Jadavpur University on the 24th of December 1955.

Sri Aurobindo was the first Principal of the Bengal National College and among the teachers was luminaries like Rabindranath Tagore, Sir Gurudas Banerjee, Ananda Coomaraswamy, Surendra Nath Banerjee, Ramendra Sundar Trivedi, Radha Kumud Mukherjee, Benoy Kumar Sarkar, Sakharam Ganesh Deoskar and others.
