College of Engineering and Management, Kolaghat (CEMK) was conceived and planned by Prof. Shankar Sen, an eminent educationist and former vice chancellor, Jadavpur University in the year 1998. It has a campus area of 26.925 acres (108,960 m2) and is located 57 km away from Kolkata within the Kolaghat Thermal Power Plant (KTPP) Township, Purba Midnapur, West Bengal. The College offers full time engineering programmes leading to 4 year B. Tech degree from West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT). All the courses are approved by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, India. However, the college started off in 1998 with affiliation by Vidyasagar University, Midnapore, West Bengal. The first three batches of Engineering Graduates (1998–2002, 1999–2003 and 2000–2004) from this college got Bachelor of Engineering (B.E) degree from Vidyasagar University. But, in the year 2001 when WBUT was formed, all non-Government Engineering Colleges in West Bengal including CEMK came under its roof.
