College Infrastructure
The college is a very a small college with an area of just 5.5 acres. Hence the space is just enough for all the classrooms and Labs. The labs for ECE and IT is very good and well equipped. But the labs for electrical and mechanical is under construction and would be make proper in one year. Due to space limitation, hostel inside the campus is available only for girls. The whole college is well equipped with WiFi service and is accessible from everywhere. The sports facilities are almost zero.
Academics
Academics is pretty good and teachers are very much supportive in all your initiatives and studies. The teachers are also well qualified and has a lot of experience in guiding students. The curriculum followed is that of Kerala Technological University. The teachers notes are also at par with the GATE notes standard.
Placements
Placements are very less and placement cell is not very good. The highest package offered is 5lpa. Lowest offered is 3lpa. Average salary is 3.5 lpa. Almost all the companies that visited were IT companies. The college offered placement training to us months before the starting of placements. That was pretty good and helpful. Among the 400 students in one batch nearly 150 were placed in the year 2018 and placement statistics went lower after that
Value-for-money
Since this is a Government college the fees is very less. The fee was just Rs 8000/- per year. Along with that there were some extra charges, but everything is very meagre. Hence of course it was worth the money. Just like the cost the facilities are also less, so one can't complain.
Campus Life
The Campus Life is just amazing. A student gets a lot of opportunities to improve their soft skills such as communication, leadership, management etc. this is because of the various activities conducted here every year. The college fest, Arts fest, and Technical fest everything is completely conducted by the students and teachers are very much supportive in those things. The campus is located in the heart of thiruvananthapuram city and hence everything is available at the tip of or hands.
Anything Else
If someone is having financial difficulties and is very keen in academics, then i would surely suggest this college. Here academics is pretty good and the teachers are very much supportive. Also there are various student groups and bodies which is very active in academics and teachers support a lot of innovative projects here.

Government Engineering College, Bartonhill is one of the top 5 colleges in Kerala, located in the heart of the capital city of Kerala. It's the only college in South India that provides a fully featured Mechatronics course known as ADAM's Course in association with Mercedes Benz. Benz is one of the greatest destiny for a technology lover, and here we have it for campus recruitments. The techfest of the college, known as AAGNEYA is not just the festival of college, it is celebrated by the whole city in addition to technologists and science lovers from world wide. The college sounds great, even among IITs and NITs, despite of the infrastructural limitations.

Govt engineering college Barnhill (GEC) is one of the best govt engineering colleges in Kerala with good infrastructure and placement. The college was established in 1999 and through this short span of time it has achieved a lot in almost all field and I think no other college has achieved this. The inter-college techno-cultural fest "AAGNEYA" is one of the best cultural fests in the south India.The college life is awesome in all aspects, The faculties are all experienced ones and well supportive. When I came to the college first I didn't even expected this much as it is a government institution, though it has some limitations, it can be overcome in the coming years. The faculties and mainly the atmosphere is nice.

A perfect atmosphere of studies and enjoyment. Very good placements. Very nice faculty members. Very modern facilities. Useful workshops. Our college has the university toppers of almost all branvhes each year. There are 5 btech and 5 mtech branches here. Sufficient Lab facilities are there for each department. The faculties are fully committed. One can enjoy the freedom of a government college and study better than a private one.
