College Infrastructure

Yes the college has all the basic infrastructure and facilities except a college auditorium. T here is no auditorium but only an open stage which is left unused. Classrooms are good and equipped with projectors and some classes have smartboards. But there is no proper maintenance done. There is college wifi which is only accessible to the students who register their laptops at the office which is also available at the campus hostels. There are 2 ladies hostels and one men's hostel in the campus

a home college

College Infrastructure

well, Its quite pleasing with the infrastructure facilities provided by the management. Similar process have been initiated in bulding a new laboratory complex for more updated facilities included. Well there is also progression in the construction of 2 new basketball court in the campus. Overall the infrastructure is good

Awesome experience, pollution-free atmosphere

Have a question related to GEC Wayanad ?

Sir/Madam, I have got 65 marks only in JEE main exam and I belong to OBC-NCL category. Can I get admission in any Govt engineering college

It depends upon the JEE Main and JEE Advance cut offs, If You manage to qualify the exam by achieving the cut off, You can apply for JOSAA Counselling. It should be noted the cut off for EWS/SC/ST/FEMALES/OBC category is lower than the general category

If you manage to qualify JEE Main Cutoff, You would be eligible for JEE Advance which is the intake exam for IITs as mentioned above.


However It is usually advised to fill the choices as per the preference of colleges and departments, for example CSE in NIT Trichy is your priority followed by CSE in NIT Warangal, you can fill CSE at NIT Trichy at serial number 1 and CSE at NIT Warangal at serial number 2 and so on and so forth. However to get any NIT, you must have qualified JEE Mains and to get any IIT, you must have qualifies JEE Advanced

But the previous cut offs of colleges should be taken in consideration, it is better to research over the cut off of colleges then make a preference list of colleges and fill accordingly

For the college preferences and the courses provided by these colleges and to know which colleges participate in the JOSAA counselling, please go to the below mentioned link: https://engineering.careers360.com/articles/josaa-participating-institutes/amp

Rest for information on any particular college, you can dig their official site for better information

Sir I got seat in government engineering college raichur I am not interested plzz again round for supplementary students plzz

Hi Candidate,

You have been allotted a seat in the Government Funded Technical Institutions (GFTIs) at Raichur, so you might have got it from the JoSAA Counseling Process which is the official Seat Allotment Commitee for admission into the IIITs, IITs, NITs, and the GFTIs too.

So, if you are not interested in the current college alloted to you in the counselling rounds, you can either choose to Slide or Float your seat so that you get an opportunity to get another seat in the further Rounds.

Hope that this answer helps you.
