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
Academics
I am a student in the ECE dept. Teaching quality is good. The KTU curriculum is being followed. The results are not that good. Teachers are pretty good and talented. Many new permanent teachers and staffs joined in this academic year.
Placements
There are no campus placements. Students usually go to placement drives in other colleges as there are rarely campus placements. Placement rate is low. But it is sure to improve in the coming academic years
Value-for-money
The fees is as per the KTU guidelines since it is a pure govt college
Campus Life
The campus life is fun if you find great friends. The campus is very green an ecofriendly with the excellent cold wayanad climate. The area is perfect for weekend trekking . Its not a town area
Anything Else
The hostel timings are very uneven for boys and girls. Girls are strictly made to reach hostels before 6 pm . Where as the time doesn't matter for boys

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
Academics
Am studying for the bachelor of technology for the computer science engineering course. This is my first year in this college, I feel good being with the new faculty members here. They are quite serious during the class hours but are good at interacting when we meet them casually. The teaching and learning process here are quite smooth. As this is a government college professors never take much efforts but students are capable of taking effort for the academic progress.
Placements
In terms of placements, My course is splendid as i hear from the mouth of seniours and the passed out alumni relatives. This is one of the reason which lead me to take this course from this district, whereas my home is at thrissur. We have an enthusiastic team for the placement cell which includes alumni members where they are the core reason for the reach of new companies to the college.
Value-for-money
We barely need to pay a fees of 15000 per annum for the tuition fees in the college and scholarship is also available for them who below to the bpl category and whose annual family income is less than 5 lakhs and 1 lakhs respectively. The hosel fees is to be paid from our hand if we are looking rooms outside. The academics are fine in the colllege. Well I could assure that I will miss this college when i go home.
Campus Life
Since the fees in the college is very low, we do not have to worry about the tuition fee. The hostel fees is to be paid from our hand. The rest are funded by the government. Moreover there are also scholarships at different levels of talents and family income basis too. There are also different clubs in the college which are related to the academic purpose as well as for the enjoy purpose. They are the major reasons for the our excellent college life.

Excellent Infrastructure and faculty at my institute. Many people don't know about the college because of less marketing. There are hostels inside Campus, with all the facilities like mess, wifi, gym etc.The faculties are highly experienced. One can get good industry exposure by working in so many projects offered to the students.As the college is located 5 km away from the town, the air pollution in the area is almost nil.

The best place where you can enjoy, learn and see a lot of genuine persons. It is the place where they give not only importance to study but also to other co-curricular activities. you get to know more about your surrounding and study how to be a good man in your life.

A College in the lap of Nature

"Government Engineering College, Wayanad is one among the 9 government colleges under DTE established and managed by Govt. of Kerala. It is located at Thalapuzha, 6 Km from Mananthavady in the hilly district of Wayanad. GEC Wayanad have four regular B.Tech courses - Computer Science & Engineering(1999), Electronics & Communication Engineering(1999), Electrical and Electronics Engineering(2010) and Mechanical Engineering(2014), a part-time evening B.Tech course in Electronics & Communication Engineering and two M.Tech courses -Communication Engineering & Signal Processing and Computer Networks & Security. The college is funded by Technical Education Quality Improvement Program(TEQIP), Phase II. This College is affiliated to Kannur University. The first thing that attracted me in my college was its fresh and brisk weather and its unique geographical position blessed with mist-clad mountains and sylvan valleys. Eventhough the college is having serene and pristine flawless beauty, all essential facilities like ATM, Bank, Internet Cafes,etc are met as both Thalapuzha and Mananthavady towns are nearby. Transportation facilities to town from college are also easy as it is located on the side of Mananthavady-Kannur State Highway. The College is having good infrastructure. All facilities are available at the college itself. We have good, neat and affordable canteen. The Library is also of great use for us and the librarians are very much co-operating and are very helpful and friendly to the students. The TEQIP funding is a great boon in the development of our library. Our college also provides a co-operative store where we can find all stationery items and even our favourite ice creams, coffee, tea, light snacks etc..We also have refreshment centres, network lab, CCF and all that is needed for an engineering student to grab their goals. Our college also have hostel facilities which are affordable to common people. We, the GECWians are also premier in arts as well as sports. The college gives enormous support for all kind of extra curricular activities. Our college owns many of the national and state participants in different sports such as table tennis, javelin throw, discus throw etc..We have gymnasium and sports room in our college under physical education department. Our college also encourages games like cricket, football, volleyball etc..The students are also motivated to do creative projects related to engineering topics too. As Wayanad is a place difficult to reach due to lack of transportation facilities, the placements are relatively low in the beginning but it is improving like anything as the academic level of students are being high. We expect the TEQIP also help in increasing the placement in future. Another speciality of our college is the high level of freedom given to the students. Students are completely free inside the college. The faculty here is also very supporting also but there is an issue of lack of faculty which are compensated by qualified adhocs. Our college gives students the oppurtunity to be socially committed by conducting different awareness programmes in the presence of eminent personalities in the field. The students are also given orientation classes and career development classes. Our college is definitely good and is unique in its serene natural beauty. It is a boon to study in such a beautiful place free from the noises of hectic world. Our college gives everyone coming over there the soft gentle breeze which caress their face and cool their body and that's our GEC Wayanad. "
