    Verified Review

    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

    Hello vyshnav,

    I would suggest you share your rank as only then we will be able to better help you. That being said, your chances of admission at institutes like NITs, IIITs, and CFTIs are low.

    Best.

    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.
