Necessary things are available in the college. There are lot of facilities in the College Of Engineering, Trivandrum . We can use this very effectively. This will help us a lot. We can improve our practical knowledge. Living spaces are hygenic but the food is not so good. You have to try the food from outside
Quality of teaching is not so good, some teachers are dedicated while others are not. Teacher uses new technologies for teaching, such as they uses projecters etc. The curriculum is currently updated.
There is a good placement. A lot of companies come to our college for placements. Also there are a loet of students who are placed in top positions. Our college gives full support for us. They are always with us.
The fee is low. So we would get the moneys worth

Our college has a really good infrastructure, also equipped with solar panels. We have a central library and amazing sport centres - gym, basketball court, football ground and halls for indoor playing. Our classrooms are pretty good equipped with projectors.
I am studying B.tech Mechanical Engineering ,first year. The quality of teaching is good. I'm skeptical about whether our syllabus includes all the recent develpoments in the field and I guess it's not updated.
The quality of placements can be said is good as nearly 70% students were placed last year. The highest package offered was 32.5LPA by Acresium and the average salary offered is around 5 lac per annum.

The campus is vast over 125 acres of land with great infrastructure. All the departments have high class infrastructure facilities. But little of shortcomings as well as the college is on its 80 th year.
Among the engineering colleges under Kerala technological University CET stands top in pass percentage. The teachers are very well qualified almost everyone owns PHD. For the students in the college academics is never a big challenge as they are very well capable of covering up all the portions with in few days.
Placements are guaranteed for sure. For every student who passes the course. But the packages vary according to the students capabilities and skills. Last year the highest placement was into Amazon for 32lakhs per annum.
The fees is very megere as it is a government college.
Campus Life
The campus life is quite awesome as there would be some or other programmes every day which keeps the students at the top of their zeal.
Anything Else
For every Engineering aspirant student in Kerala it is the dream come true for securing admission in CET tvm.

Questions related to College of Engineering, Trivandrum

Showing 3028 out of 3028 Questions

I secured 82 percentile in Mba Cet exam in ST. Can I get reputed colleges.

Anuja 27th May, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

At this percentile you can expect colleges based on ST category such as

Chetna Institute of Management, Mumbai

MET Institute of Management, Mumbai,

IES, Mumbai


Indira Institute of Management, Pune

Every year the cut off differs based on the category, home university, other than Home University, rank

So I would suggest to go through the counseling process and when you will get the rank you can know the your chances of getting into reputed colleges

Hope this helps

i got 80.28 percentile in mba cet for which top good colleges i am eligible to take admission my category is SEBC ??

Anuja 26th May, 2020

Dear Aspirant,

You belong to SEBC category which was included in cap rounds counseling last year. So many people were not having the certificate hence the cut off for SEBC for relatively low in top colleges

The admission also depends on home university, other than Home University, people who actually apply.

So last year at this percentile people got into top 10 colleges through SEBC

I would suggest to either go through cap counseling as you get to know your rank category wise at that time or else apply to PGDM.

Hope this helps
