    The teachers are more focused on preparing the students for the challenges of engineering than for exams. This allows the student to think out of the box and get innovative, hence making it easy both in academics and in later life.

    I experienced one of the best college life in CET.

    Verified Review


    I'm studying computer science. We have enough experienced faculties to teach us. They provide good quality teaching environment. Our syllabus is not that properly updated. But it covers all the basics of the fields in CS and provides us with quality information.



    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.

    Have a question related to College of Engineering, Trivandrum ?

    I have uploaded my wrong puc student number and even after correction it's the same in my cet application form and i cant even change now what shall i do please reply me...

    Hello Vikas,

    At the time of form filling itself, you must twice check the form before its actual submission. PUC number is the most important parameter in CET exam which later has its influence on post exam counseling. You must now wait till the correction window that begins shortly after submission of CET forms and remains open for 1-2 days. You may also try to mail the CET Officials about the same consent. Last option for you might be to wait until beginning of counseling rounds since your profile is unlocked for editing before entering counselling rounds. Till that time you check the CET portal from time to time for editing window.

    Hope, this answers your question...
