Chief Engineer Burj Khalifa Civil, 1986 Batch

My great institution, the Govt. College of Engineering Kannur, which stands out as the best in Malabar,not only creates technocrats but mould them to excel in their creativity also. Enriched with a fully devoted and accomplished team of faculty, along with its curriculum it acts as avery conductive ladder for the students in achieving their aspirations and also as a concrete pillar where they need support. It is overwhelming to mention the covetous evolution of this prestigious institution since its inception. I'm so honoured that I belong to the first batch (1986) of this esteemed organization. Though it was a 'real living' of years of us with limited facilities in the beginning when we started our journey from the noisy corridors of the Town High School Payyambalam, we can proudly pronounce now that it has only boosted our morale and poise.

GCEK gave me the opportunity to hone my technical and leadership skills being the second batch of this college. The deep relationships built have lasted over three decades and the link with GCEK remains everlasting strong. The experience of setting up the IEEE chapter and representing the college in Quiz competitions helped me develop courage and confidence in building leadership attributes which allowed me to scale new heights in my corporate career of 30 years resulting in senior leadership roles and being the sole Asian on the executive committee.

Graduating as an engineer from GCEK gave me the right platform to pursue my passion in automotive design and I have been fortunate to be associated with brands like Safran, Renault and Mercedes-Benz in my years of design experience in the field.
Being part of the GCEK family has been one of the key elements not only in establishing my basics in mechanical engineering, but also personally in making friends whom I'm very close to even now.
I wish the future engineers from GCEK a wonderful career with loads of experience and also the very best to the teaching faculty for their continued motivation to nurture and develop young skilled professional engineers.

Sharanya Shyamdas N T, Class of 2016, IIM Calicut

It is no wonder why people say College life is the best part of their lives! I was lucky enough to experience my wonder at GCEK: The best engineering college in Malabar region and one among the top engineering colleges in Kerala. Be it the vast campus with its miraculous infrastructure, well-qualified yet magnanimous professors, well recognized Student Bodies and Tech-fests, you name it, GCEK has it! GCEK not only enhances one's technical skills, but also provide various platforms to apply the gained knowledge. Constant and collaborative interactions with some of the brightest minds has broadened my knowledge base, improved my leadership abilities and contributed to other inter-personal skills. The TEQIP Cell & Placement cell are major value additions to the college. Our batch saw a placement figure of 101 on the first day and I was successfully placed in TCS. I owe my success to GCEK, for it gave me the competitive edge, confidence and willpower to reach out to my dreams. And Yes, I miss GCEK!

Jishnu N. T. (2011 ECE batch), Research Associate, Dept. of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Raman Research Institute,

I’m very proud to call myself a graduate from GCEK, one of the best engineering colleges in Kerala. GCEK, with its well qualified faculty and excellent infrastructure, helped me to build my knowledge in various facets of engineering. Were it not for the friendly and supportive atmosphere of GCEK, I strongly doubt whether I would have dared to go beyond the finite limits of engineering curriculum and get involved in other extra curricular activities which proved very essential for my career. I’m happy to say that I make use of the knowledge that I gained at GCEK, in my day to day professional work which involves some good amount of engineering. The placement cell of GCEK is a remarkable endeavour by the faculty and students of GCEK. With sufficient training and ample learning opportunities, it makes sure that almost everyone in a batch is prepared, for campus placement or off-campus placement. A large number of students in our batch got placed in on campus placement as well as off-campus placement. I’m happy and proud to say that I myself got placed in two companies during my engineering studies, and one more after completing my course, because of the confidence imparted by the cell. I wish all the best to my college. As an end note, it is always a pleasure to return to my alma mater, which is more like a second home to me.

Arjun Mohan, Junior Executive Engineering Materials, MRF Ltd

Life at GCEK was indeed a breakthrough in my life. Experiences there moulded my career and personality.  The activities - curricular and extra curricular- at the college gave me cutting edge knowledge on dealing various issues I have to come across in my daily professional life.  Thanks to all my teachers, staff and the entire GCEK family, without whom, I couldn’t even dream of being an employee at MRF.

Shan Abooshan, 2k4 ECE, Infosys, California, USA

It is with tremendous joy I am sharing about the opportunity provided by GCEK in fulfilling my dreams of becoming an independent working woman. I would like to use this medium to thank all the teachers and staff who had helped, encouraged and motivated me to give the best of my abilities towards the work I am doing and who had also helped me during the placement. GCEK brings the best of companies to its campus and trains the students to get placed in all of them. Thank you everybody once again for the same.

Greeshma K S, 2k11 EEE, IBM India Pvt. Ltd, Bangalore

4 years in GCEK was indeed most colorful period of my life which helped in molding my personality. Here students are taught not only the lessons of engineering but also life. We have very good faculties and facilities which boost our curricular and extra curricular activities. IEEE and National Service Scheme were excellent platforms for me to work in a group and perform as a leader. Innovative ideas are always welcomed and encouraged. I thank everyone in GCEK for guiding me through the right path and I wish all success for its future endeavors.

Anagha Chamblon, Assistant System Engineer at TCS

I can positively say GCEK has made me a better person. It has helped me to develop a positive attitude towards my studies and discover more about myself. Teachers are very caring and interested in students’ well- being. They make sure every class is fun, educational and interactive. Life at GCEK was an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life, not only because what I learn in class, but also I could ​meet many people from various backgrounds and knowledge. These experiences have shown to be of use both in my social life and professional life.

It gives me immense pleasure to recollect the wonderful days I spent at my Alma mater, Govt. College of engineering, Kannur. I owe everything to my college for what I am today. The campus continues to be a perennial source of energy for all of us. The abundance of love and care that the faculty showered on us can never be forgotten. The ambience was so fine that freedom of expression was the hall mark which gave us the confidence to speak our minds out. Now let us all be united in promoting the well being of this great institution which I am quite sure will scale new heights in the coming days

My time at GCEK was an experience I will cherish forever. I am very proud to be a GCEK’an. My college has given me a wonderful life with good career and motivation. One thing which comes to my mind when thinking about my college is the good learning environment. The library and the classrooms are more functional. The Friendly attitude of the staff and their willingness to always offer a helping hand has made me come out from my limitations which in turn helped me to get a job in a core company.

Sub Lieutenant Akhil Vijayan, Indian Navy

It gives me great pleasure to say with pride that I have completed my graduation from GCEK.

The four years spent here were splendid and has helped me to grow better professionally & personally. I would like to thank all the faculties and staff for making me a “Right Person” for the Right job and get into my dream career.

Deepthi mohan, Assistant system Engineer TCS

GCEK offers a blend of training, beautiful and friendly campus and integration of enduring principles. The relationship between faculties and students is very cordial which helps the students to excel in their area of interest and mould their career. Extremely hardworking placement cell gave us infinite opportunities for choosing our domains ahead. Literally I feel proud to be a GCEK ian.

Vipin p, IBS software services, Trivandrum

I think most of us would be in a kind of dilemma after joining the B Tech course and running through the 4 years of wonderful journey, just because of thinking about getting a job, moreover a highly paid one. From my experience it's not only our academics plays a vital role in getting placed in a reputed company, but there are several other factors which contributes on the personal front. Everyone has a limit where people will get saturated and won't be able to think out of the box. What if someone is there to polish your thoughts and ideas and can act as a facilitator. I wish to address GCEK as a platform where students can express themselves and explore more on the technical aspects as well as on the morality side. The kind of support extended from the faculties was tremendous. Especially the proactive approach taken by the placement cell for personality reforming and for developing the competitive skills. Basically all these activities laid down a strong foundation for the gradual transition from a student to a professional. I am proud to be a GCEK’ian and wish all of them a very bright future!
