About College:

India has several of these institutes termed as the Government College of Engineering, suffixed by the name of the city it is located in. These were usually started when none others existed in the entire region for the topic of engineering. Many of them are also amongst the most respected in their region. Most states in India have some version of these. Usually, these colleges come under the jurisdiction of the respective state government. One of them is the Government College of Engineering in Kannur (GCEK), located in the state of Kerala. This one was started in the year 1986. 

The Government College of Engineering, Kannur was earlier affiliated to the Kannur University, located in the same town, earlier known as Cannanore. Now, this college is affiliated to the APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (APJAKTU), located in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram. The APJAKTU was earlier known as the Kerala Technical University (KTU). The total campus of the GCEK spans over seventy- acres of land. The Government College of Engineering, Kannur has also always believed in providing benefits to the broader society. The students here have likewise been instilled with such value. And that is why the students of this college have been active participants in national schemes such as the NSS (National Service Scheme).

The GCEK runs programmes right from the UG till doctoral levels. At the undergrad level, B. Tech programmes in engineering are available for the areas of- Civil, Mechanical, Computer Science, Electrical & Electronics and for Electronics & Communication. At the master’s level, the courses get more technical. So, the M. Tech programmes are available for the areas of- Computer Aided Structural Engineering, Signal Processing & Embedded Systems, Advanced Manufacturing & Mechanical Systems Design and for Power Electronics & Drives. Several doctoral programmes may also be undertaken here at the Government College of Engineering, Kannur. Admissions to the various programmes at the UG level, is via the KEAM (Kerala Engineering Architecture Management) paper. 

The GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering) scores are considered for the M. Tech. level admissions. The entire academics here at the GCES is run by a cohort of six academic departments, each with expertise in its own area. Five of these six departments are for the areas in which the B. Tech. degree may be pursued in here. The sixth one is the Department of Applied Science and Mathematics. This one takes care of the fundamental sciences of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, plus the English language courses. Another area of much importance to the institute is entrepreneurship. This is why the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Cell (IEDC) has been an active forum here.

It helps develop the budding entrepreneurs among the students for the institute. Experienced trainers and entrepreneurs are invited to campus to deliver guest lectures and interact with those who have such business models. Key focus is paid here towards the MSME (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) segment. It also deals with some of the research initiatives. Research too plays a very important role here. To facilitate that, the library here is one of the best stocked within the region. Besides the physical books on display, it also provides digital access to en number of international academic journals for research and academic purposes.

The Government College of Engineering, Kannur is also well- known for its Faculty and Staff Development Training Centre (FSDTC). As the name suggests, this is there to enhance the skill and knowledge level of the trainers, so that they remain updated with the latest industry trends. It has been set up in collaboration with the DTE (Directorate of Technical Education) of the Government of Kerala. It is the third in the state, after the other two in the capital of Thiruvananthapuram and in Thrissur. The GCEK has also taken up memberships of several professional bodies. These help in developing students more holistically.

Some of these bodies here are the ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education) and the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). The GCEK is a key facilitator of a Ministry of HRD initiative with the World Bank. It is a programme titled TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme). This is handled by the Centre of Excellence (COE). There is also a Centre of Automation Control (CAC). It works on the latest of trends gripping the world of business and engineering. Yet another one here is the Centre of Continuing Education. As the name suggests, this helps external students get in touch with coordinators for facilitating their distance- learning programmes. 

It is primarily meant for those who are unable to dedicate regular time to academics, but are seeking a skill upgrade. The GCEK has also been accredited by the NBA (National Board of Accreditation). The campus placements have also been healthy over the years. Some of the key recruiters over the recent seasons includes the likes of- Idea, TCS, MRF, Accenture, Huawei, IBS, Al Reyami Group, HCL, Cognizant, South Indian Bank, Satyam, VKC, Infosys, AARBEE, Quest, Cabot Technology and several more. The college rankings have also as a result come up. The Careers 360 magazine has placed the GCES within the AAA+ category among engineering colleges.
