Its aim was to harness the best of technology and global learning to build an industrial base in India that would be self-reliant. It was led by statesmen, intellectuals, and middle-class intelligentsia.

The National Council of Education founded many educational institutions. Bengal Technical Institute was one of them. It was later renamed as College of Engineering and Technology and in 1955, called Jadavpur University.

The founders of the institute believed that for the technical institute to thrive, basic sciences and humanities sections should also be opened. Hence, the university started imparting education in the fields of science, arts, and technology.
