I got into Colege of Engineering Trivandrum in the year 2015. The admission procedure for the college follows the entrance examination common to all the state government engineering colleges in the state, the Kerala Engineering and Medical Entrance Examination KEAM. You have to be in the top ranks to be admitted to the college. My rank in the KEAM 2015 exam was 1462. I only got into the college in the third round of allotment. However, the departments like Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical and Electronics and Communication Engineering have a lower threshold for admitting students.
