The only functioning student society is the IEEE. Any other clubs mentioned in the brochures are for namesake alone. The only pivotal event in college life is the annual TechFest. Students from all branches are expected to create a project. However, it doesn't seem to have many outsiders, given that the college is situated in a village. The cultural festival and sports are for namesake only. In general, social life is pathetic. Most students are morbidly competitive and they talk about only academics.
There are 2 men's hostels, 2 ladies hostels and one Post Grad hostel. I stay at the Freshers hostel. From my experience, it is like a prison with a warden watching your every move. The residents are even referred to as "inmates", so you can figure. The inmates are subjected to unreasonable rules such as no eating during study time, a curfew of 6:00 PM and no smartphones. Heavy penalties are imposed for seemingly harmless violations. A student can get suspended for leaving the campus without a pass. With that said, however, the one thing about this hostel I can't argue against is cleanliness. Every afternoon maids clean up our washrooms. Hostel Fees Fees are only paid in semester-wise installments. For one academic year, the fees structure is about 27,000 INR. PGs/ other options The PGs near my college are immeasurably cheaper than hostels. Fees there are paid in monthly installments. Per year, the rent is 18,000 INR. They also offer free cooking gas, thereby lowering food cost. They can accommodate up to a 6 people per house. Food. Food is pretty lukewarm. They maintain hygienic standards. However, our diet is not diversified - every afternoon and night, we are provided with rice. Mess halls offer breakfast, lunch, teatime and dinner. The cost per day is 120 INR. Infrastructure There is no extra facility other than the Internet lab. Even then, access is restricted. There is a TV in the study hall.
Daily Routine Classes commence at 9:00 AM and conclude at 4:10 PM, with two 10-min breaks and one hour recess in between. The curriculum there is heavily test-based. We have internal exams held every two weeks. Each subject has a minimum of two assignments per semester. At the end of every sem, we have university exams. Quality and method of teaching. Professors tend to follow the "by the book" and "to the test" approach in teaching. Nothing new beyond our syllabus is taught in our classrooms. Our professors reference each and every topic with the number of marks in exams. Nevertheless, their formulaic way of teaching is easy to follow for even the most academically-challenged student. Overall, the college does provide an ambiance for studying.
Fees structure of Vimal Jyothi Engineering College, [VJEC] Chemperi- Tuition fees for merit seat is 75,000 INR. For management/NRI seat, it is 1,00,000 INR. One can get a merit-based scholarship for KEAM ranks above 20,000 up to 100% per year. There is also a scholarship for financially-challenged minority students. (Muslims/Christians) As far as I know, no loans are necessarily provided you have good 12th grades and not in dire financial straits.
Internships, I have no idea about this. Placements are mostly from sundry second-rate IT startups and companies, most headquartered in not too big cities of India. All the branches get placed into IT. However, few notable names such as Sutherland, Infosys etc. come to our campus every now and then. Salary figures The average package of a fresher is 1,00,000 INR CTC. The highest package one can hope to get is 5,00,000 INR CTC. You might see in college brochures boasting 100% placement. This is a lie. In reality, the ones who get placed have no arrears to clear and have a good GPA. Alumni Network From what I heard, Alumni life is quite weak. This is not too surprising – as social life there is pathetic. ( I'll come to this later) However, last year, my branch had organized an Alumni meet-up.
The most inexpensive and basic way of procuring admission is via the KEAM exam or the merit seat. Once you get there, you will have to pay tuition fees of 75,000 INR. The second and more expensive way is the management/NRI quota. However, you will have to pay 1,00,000 INR for this. I got admitted into this college via KEAM. The cut-off there is very generous. My KEAM rank was 30,000. As per my understanding, you shouldn't get a KEAM rank below 50,000.
Students actually make the college life. Vimal Jyothi Engineering college basically always concerned with academics.

The student societies available here are IEEE. There are different clubs available here but are not active enough, IEEE is the only active one. The faculty support in my department(ECE) is very less in this field. The college conducts sports and cultural day for the namesake. The life in the college is very boring other than having good friends in general.
Yes, I stay in the hostel. Hostel rooms are good. They are not single sharing. I have to pay more than INR 2800 for the hostel per month. Hostel facilities are good except food. Every time there will be a problem regarding food that is nonhygienic. PGs are less available outside the college and even if we get, the cost of living is less in Pgs. The quality of infrastructure is good with Iso Certified.
I am under the management quota and the fee is more than INR 89,000 per annum. Students under the government quota get the scholarship over here. Those students who are with the impeccable academic background too get the scholarship over here. Yes, loans are provided by the banks to the respective students who require the student loans for studying. The Syndicate Bank which is on the college campus provides student loan.
Class starts at 9 am and ends at 4:10 pm and between this timing, 10 minutes breaks are provided along with the lunch break of one hour. The Quality and method of teaching are good and the college library provides all the good books for studying purposes. Overall experience is good.
The internships provided by the college are not up to the mark, students themselves have to find their internship programmes during their vacation days. The college provides good placement for qualified students in companies such as TCS, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, CTS, Wipro, U.S Technology, and Sobha Developers LML etc. I don't know about the average package. A good percentage of students are getting placed. The college has a good alumni network. Every year alumni meet is conducted here.
For admission, a student has to write the KEAM(Kerala State Level Engineering Entrance examination) exam. Candidates will get admission as per the rank they have scored in the KEAM examination. The cutoff marks will be 50% for general candidates and 40% for SEBC/ST/SC candidates.
