College Infrastructure
The college is having less campus area compared to other colleges but there has been no compromise on the laboratories. The labs are well maintained with all required equipments,classes are equipped with sufficient seating arrangements with projector screen facility,it has got the best library anyone could ask for,canteens are also the best in terms of food and hygiene. The only challenge faced by the college is its inability to expand campus area and the construction of a good hostel.
Academics
I am doing my bachelors in electronics and communication engineering. The college has got the best faculties and an efficiently working placement training cell. College follows the curriculum provided by the Kerala technological university. It offers a wide range of electives for the students to choose according to their interest. The college has introduced a new branch of Artificial intelligence from 2020 and is very well updated with the curriculum.
Placements
As mentioned above the college has an effective placement unit that guides the students on taking aptitude tests,interviews etc right from the third year of their course. Nearly 20 to 30 students get placed in core as well as other companies every year. I am currently attending the training sessions and find it really effective.
Value-for-money
The fee structure of the college is as per government guidelines.There is difference in the fee structure depending on our type of admission that is merit,management or NRI. For merit students the fees is Rs 35k per year. Be it academics or other curricular activities,the campus offers its best. So it's worth the money.
Campus Life
The campus has got one of the most celebrated technocultural fest cult a Way and auto expedition Autobahn. Apart from these the campus has got a well functioning Iedc and IEEE SB that conduct many technical and innovative programs.Also there are many clubs in the campus like nature,literature, music,dance,film etc that organize various events for the students.The campus is located at the capital city,on NH47 kanyakumari highway. It is 5min away from Prs hospital and is able to manage emergencies
Anything Else
According to my personal experience, eventhough the college has got lesser area compared to others,it offers a kind of vibe that you never forget. The technical and cultural events organized by the college is something you cherish forever. Arts ,sports,tournaments,inter college fest,project expo,everything is worth giving you a memory of your campus life. Most importantly your career goals will also be achieved.

College Infrastructure
Campus is well build with all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipment but it lacks college ground other than this it's fully well maintained with labs, library, sports. Campus also has a good and hygiene canteen along with a mini canteen.
Academics
I am pursuing btech computer science and sree chitra thirunal college is among the top colleges to provide education. We are taught by professionals with phd qualifications and also considering the lastest updates of our university. We are taught in job oriented manner. Also from 2021 we have new branch for computer science that is artificial intelligence.
Placements
Campus is having a very good placement opportunities where companies like oracle, cognizant, Infosys and so on hire students for the job. Last year our students were placed at 11 lakhs per annum from computer science department and also from other department.
Value-for-money
The fee is 35,000 per year and of course it is worth the cost by the quality of education, campus life, experiences that we get from the campus.
Campus Life
Apart from lack of college ground ,we are getting all the necessary as a college student. Campus has a main canteen and also a mini canteen. Near to front of the campus, we have the cult stage for our programs. There are many societies like IEEE, CSI., IEDC, NSS so that students can take part in them. Elections are also conducted. Campus is in pappanamcode , Thiruvananthapuram. Also there are many shops near by so that students can have snacks. We also fests namely Cult A Way,also other programs

Placements: The college had a very good placement record. Nearly 85 percent were placed. The lowest salary offered is 14000 and highest is 50000. Nearly 15 companies visit our college every year. The training given by the training and placement team is excellent. Infrastructure: Lab facilities were very poor. Sports and games are not given much attention. But the college has an excellent library facility. Altogether, the facilities provided were only average. There was no WiFi etc. The food provided in the canteen was very good. It was not too expensive. Besides a main canteen, a mini canteen was also there in the campus. If I was asked personally, I would say these were the things which attracted most of the students into the college. Whenever the period is very boring, most of the students used to spend time here and about the infrastructure, I don't have anything much to comment. When we were studying we didn't have the main auditorium. College programmes were organized in private auditoriums which were far away from the campus. Also the college lacked a playground. It was actually a small campus. Faculty: Most of the faculty members were helpful. But there were a few who don't like questioning or asking doubts. I won't say that every faculty is knowledgeable but still there were some faculty members who had in-depth knowledge in their subject areas. To develop cultural and training activities of students we had parent teachers association. The college helped to inculcate honesty, responsibility, and mutual respect for people. Other: I am very glad that I studied in this college because only when you go out for a job, you will understand the true value of your college days. In that sense, I would say that this college is one of the best colleges in Kerala. Though it's a self-financed college you can develop a good background in engineering if you study in this prestigious institution.

Nice but small campus as compared to others. But well qualified and well teaching faculties. Dont expectschool like spoon feeding here. A college that gives you great learning atmosphere and provides you exposure to different realms of life..you can improve here not only as engineer but as an artist,administrator etc. If you wish to be the best, SCT is what makes it happen. The best govt.engineering college with everything what a grooming engineer needs and the worlds best core companies waiting to get you placed. Its our SCT..... what makes it best in kerala....

The college is situated in the heart of the Trivandrum city. It gives a competitive edge to the college, thereby making it one of the best engineering colleges in Kerala. The crowd of the college- in terms of students and faculty is amazing and the college infrastructure is state-of-the-art with modern lab equipment and teaching aids which include Smart classes. The faculty members are highly qualified and supportive. The college is installed with an entrepreneurial instinct and the proximity with Technopark helps to bud startups and innovations in the college.

Excellence in Technical education, more practical oriented tutoring style. Good infrastructure and highly qualified teaching staff is yet another key attractive factor for the college. The placement initiatives and effective placement cell make the college in high demand for admission.

The college is one of the best engineering colleges in Kerala. One of the highlights of the college is its location which is inside the city limits of the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram. It is one of the few colleges that offer three courses in mechanical engineering.

One of the best 3 colleges in Kerala , every SCTian holds their college life dear to heart . Located in the heart of Trivandrum city , it offers a wide range of Engineering courses incl Mechanical specialisation in Automobile and Production which only a few colleges offer . The admission is based on Kerala entrance exam and seats are available in Government slot , Management slot and NRI slot . Faculty is highly experienced and helpful with interactive sessions which makes the base of every concept sink in easily , not to mention the love and support they receive . The student bunch are the most integral part which completes the circle . The college fest " Cult a Way " is well received and the cultural night is waited upon every year . Renowned bands like Agnee , Pentagram , Divine connection and celebrities like Jonita Gandhi , Raghu Ram have made their presence in the fest . The students come together and strive hard to make this the best . The college life is awesome and free . People from around the country join the B-tech program . Placements are the best in the Industry with care taken to allot each student their specialised stream job . Canteen and mess are places which holds birth of many ideas and memories . This will always be a chapter of my life where reality exceeded expectation . Love each and every moment I've been a part of this reputed institute .

The college is good.. the faculties are good with a very good knowledge over the subject. . The college has all d requisite infrastructures such as lab and workshop facilities. However, the college needs improvement in d non-technical fronts such as better bus facilities and canteen facility... it also doesn't possess a good hostel nor infrastructure for extracurricular activities.

One of the good things about this college is that the faculty to student ratio is quite good. Although I wouldn't use the word 'impressive' for the infrastructural facilities, the laboratories and workshops are quite well maintained and adequately supplied. The library is vast and has an ample collection of books concerning the available departments, along with a separate department library for each discipline offered. The college has a very active Career Guidance and Placement Unit with an excellent record of number of visiting companies and placements per year. Ranked among the top 100 in India, the college is usually considered as one of the best options for engineering in Kerala. However, I feel that there are numerous areas the college could improve in. A major problem that taints its image is the uncontrolled and quite disturbing student politics that is encouraged in the campus. Politics among students may not be so bad when it actually does good to the student community but the scenario that our college poses is one of ugly politics where outside politicians play a major part in controlling the student body and sometimes even leads to violent circumstances. Any student of S.C.T would be used to the police visiting the campus quite a number of times during a year. Growing alcoholism and other bad practices among the students are also a major cause of worry. Not restricting their personal pleasures outside the campus, students are often found involving in such malpractices within classrooms and campus. During the fest season, this has been very unsettling and dangerous to the visitors and has led to many uncomfortable situations offering least security to the women in the campus. The college has not taken any major actions to control the above, which I find rather disappointing. The college could also improve their involvement in sports. Although student have organized a sports day and other competitions to popularize sports, the college does not cooperate much in such occasions. Even the college fests are not adequately funded by the board and students strive very hard to get the sponsorship to make up for the same. It has to yet realize that like academics, cultural growth is also equally important with adequate development of sports skills. Only then would it grow completely as a graduate institute.

The life at Sree Chitra Thirunal College of Engineering (SCT CE) as a student was awesome. The college is situated @ Pappanamcode, Thiruvananthapuram on the Kanyakumari-Thiruvananthapuram national highway. The four years passes by so fast that you will not notice. The Sree Chitra Thirunal College of Engineering has the biggest mechanical workshop for the students in the state Kerala. The Sree Chitra Thirunal College of Engineering encourages the students to take part in academic & cultural competitions.

"Infrastructure is pretty good.The workshop we have in the college is way out of the box.We students are given thr ashok leyland chassis and two cars for study purpose. Placements are quite high in SCT. We rank second in south Kerala for the placements guaranteed. canteen facilities are too good.we hav a mini canteen and a full time big canteen which provides with tasty food at reasonable rate. The library is a top class one wit a wide collection of Technical as well as fictional masterpieces.The library is a full time one, with maximum membership programme to ensure evry student gets the best out of it. Sports facilities are over the notch.Football and basketball being promoted primarily cricket and badminton also is given equal importance.The official football team goes to different colleges including BITS Goa and Manipal to showcase its skills. sree chitra tirunal college of engineering is a real good place to put your talents n skills to grow into a technically as well as culturally sound engineer.In here at SCT the students get the full liberty to lead a life of their wish if you r willing to do your duties at time. No one really cares about what you are upto until you end up in the Noted List of the faculty.The college though small in size, gives the best result in trivandrum district after CET. The cultural and technical side are equally good with maximum support from the authorities to move forward with a project.There is a strong democratically elected students union which ensures that evry student in the college is given justice and freedom."
