GOVERNMENT ENGINEERING COLLEGE BARTONHILL, TRIVANDRUM
Positive remark- peaceful ambience, immense unity among students, sense of belongingness is high Negative remark- lab facilities could have been better, cafeteria facilities could have been better in terms of choices and seating area.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Feasible since it's a government college. Fees comes to around 7200 per year. Excluding hostel fees. So compared to private colleges, the fee structure is very cheap. The facilities are also really good.
Around 15 companies came for placement. College doesn't provide internships. We are allowed to go for internships on our own. College organises workshops and seminars which gives way to more career opportunities and exposure
I wrote the KEAM entrance exam conducted by Kerala government. Based on the marks, a ranklisy was published and we were given an option to give our preferences for the college. Based on rank and our preference, 3 rounds of allotment were made and I got the college on the 2nd round of allotment
Alumni network is strong. They help in bringing new career opportunities in terms of campus placements. some of the alumni are IAS officers now. They have achieved very ambitious roles. Senior students are a good point of guidance for the juniors.
Very knowledgeable and experienced. Few of the faculty are contract employees, but they are equally dedicated as the permanent faculty. The engineering math department teachers are very knowledgeable and very systematic.
Extra curricular activities in terms of cultural fests and activities are good. sports day will be there every year. labs are good but some are poorly maintained. The labs are a bit dusty and old. The new labs are well furnished with high quality equipments
