Placements are commendable. Student quality is excellent. I have participated in many techfest and achieved various skills. Apart from studies a lot of social service activities and cultural events take place. National level techno managerial events take place where our college has been the host. Tedx has been one of the events. Top payers and ranking has come in times now. Securing 39th position in India.

Featured among the best colleges in Kerala for placements, MEC offers a lot of opportunities to students. Many famous companies recruit from MEC, you can refer the placement statistics in the website to know about it. Alumni is very strong and they are the biggest support to the college. And about the college life, you will never find a college where you could enjoy so much and learn so much. Excel , the tech fest and the college arts offer new opportunities for all the students. My college life was the best because I chose MEC.

Excellent ROI and faculty at my institute. Many people don't know about the college because of less marketing. The only thing college lacks is the On-campus hostel experience. Most of the students are residing in the nearby area due to no hostel facilities. ROI of this college is very good for which one can prefer this college to other colleges present in the same league. Faculties are highly experienced. One can get good industry exposure by working in so many projects offered to the students.

The main attraction of mec is the quality of the peer group, grooming environment, placement statistics and alumni interaction. The college gave me a good exposure to the industry and I was able to get Placements from good companies. The techfest of the college Excel and the management fest Technopreneur are in par with the those of the national institutes.

Though the college is poor in infrastructure, it more than makes up for it in placements. Enjoyable college life; great faculty. Good opportunities to learn and provides good exposure to students. Arts, as well as sports, are also given great importance in addition to academics. All in all a great college.

MEC is awesome, good, excellent....what more?? No words can perfectly define the MEC life. Great faculty and great placements.One of the best college in Kerala. Best know for its student activities, placement records. Students are encouraged and supported by the staff in various activities. It has a small campus , but what it lacks in space it makes up for it in the quality and quantity of both academics and extracurricular activities. Its location is such that it is close to the city , yet in a calm and quiet hill top which is both green and refreshing providing good educational environment.

All good, well-experienced faculty and teaching staff. Infrastructure can be better. Uniforms are not needed. Girls hostel not present. Would be great if it was constructed. Ragging is an issue and lots of complaints have been made. But apart from all this, the college is great and I love it here.

Government Model Engineering College(MEC) is one of the reputed colleges in India. Getting into this college was a dream come true for me. As my choice was computer science, MEC was the best place for me. It is known for almost 100% placements every year. We also have a great fraternity of faculty. Infrastructure is not that great. But the lessons we learn from this campus will be really treasurable in an MECian's life.

MEC gives a good platform for students to build up their career not only in the technical field but also in the non-technical field. Tech fest named 'Excel', activities of 'mixed signals' (an EC group) etc are highlighting events that provide great exposure to students.'Layatharangam ' college arts is actually a festival of MEC which triggers non-technical skills of MEC family members. A playground that waves in sportsman spirit during college sports, amphitheater which is the store room of many events holds the memories of many XMECns. Good placement status and results shower flowers on MEC. All these make unforgettable rich memories in every member of MEC.

I have started my B.Tech from August-2015 under Kerala Technological University. The course is very steam lined one. The date and evaluation of tests and examinations are very strict. My college is very good in all the aspects of the study. The faculties are well experienced, The lab facility is very good. The NKN connectivity to Internet and very good library helps to study the innovative topics in electronics. Here the support for startup project is provided by Govt. of Kerala. I am registered in the group in the college which is participating the innovative projects(Startup type). As per my observation, the college guides me to a great future with innovative projects like make in India.

Good considering the return on investment and placements. Although the infrastructure maynot be that good as one might expect. The placements are good. There are quality faculty and also good contact with companies. The return on investment is huge compared to what is paid as fees.

Too good a college life. Highly qualified faculties, satisfactory lab facilities. One of the few institution in kerala with very good placement records (for btech), which keeps improving each year! Lots of freedom and fun, which includes a number of events hosted by the college itself, both technical as well as arts and sports. A very good experience indeed.
