B.A. in Economics - Batch of 2025
4.2
4Placements4Infrastructure4Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life4Value for Money
Very good campus. Good infrastructure and facilities. Average placements.
Placements: There is a placement cell to guide students in their placement journey. It is better for commerce students. The course fee will depend on the students category and scholarship. For a year, its about 1400 rupees in B.A. economics. Top companies like Federal Bank, etc. are recruiting. Some students got internships in different companies .
Infrastructure: The facilities of Fatima Mata National College is very impressive. The college has its own working Wi-Fi for students and teachers. Fmnc library is one of the best library. It also has air conditioning. The canteen foods are very good and also very affordable. Over the last year, performance in sports and games has deteriorated.
Faculty: The teachers are very helpful and qualified. The teaching quality of the teachers is good. This course is curriculum-relevant. This course makes students more knowledgeable about economics. The semester exams are conducted at the right time than any other colleges. Semester exams are quite difficult. The pass percentage is very low.
Other: I chose B.A. economics to study more about economics. The best thing about the course is that we can really study how the market works and how the world relies on economics. The current syllabus contains languages in first two years. Decreasing to one year will be better, so students can study more in details. There are events and festivals. The campus is so big, very green and has so many trees, making it very relaxing. The campus has a Wi-Fi connection. The campus is located in the heart of the city. There is a bus stand and railway station near the college. The college provides scholarships to students according to their annual income and the category they belong to. Also, there are extension activity clubs like environment, physical education, etc.

Fatima Mata national college .
Placements: Campus placement is a bit tough. It is very hard. The college has campus placements with various companies. Maybe 20 percent of students got campus placement. The package differs from company to company in placement. College campus placement is in its final year.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure is very well built. The college has Wi-Fi and internet available to every student. The college library is very big, with very good classrooms as well. The campus atmosphere is also very good. The football field and basketball court are well-maintained.
Faculty: The teachers are very friendly and open-minded. They clear all doubts and help with academics. Teachers are very qualified and efficient in their work. The B.Com. course prepares students for their future. The passing mark is 40. The semester exams are a bit tough, but they can be passed by studying thoroughly.
Other: I have chosen B.Com. because I am interested in the business field Events are held in the college to entertain the students.

I am dissatisfied with the facilities in 2023; the only positive aspect is the quality of teachers.
Placements: I don't think this college provides any placement opportunities, and it does not offer any placements. This college only offers normal degree courses, resulting in a lack of recruiting companies for this college or course. Additionally, the college does not conduct any internships.
Infrastructure: Wi-Fi facility is available for staff, teachers, and students in this college. However, the most concerning aspect is the classroom conditions. We do not have good chairs to sit on, and the classrooms are always full of dust with no one cleaning them. The library is spacious with numerous books, but upon our first visit, we noticed that the library's roof was broken. Furthermore, the washrooms are extremely unhygienic.
Faculty: The teachers in this college are excellent; they are well-trained, and their teaching methods and skills are also commendable. As for the exams, if we study well, we can score good marks, although they are quite challenging. Nevertheless, with dedicated effort, success is achievable. The teachers also provide notes.
Other: I chose this course because I completed my graduation in the same subject. I believe the campus facilities should be improved as there is ample space that isn't being utilized. The college union hosts numerous events, and students can avail themselves of the scholarships provided by the university.

Fatima Mata National college is one of the best campus in Kerala University.
Placements: There are so many opportunities after graduation. 70% of students have been placed in after our course. There are so many companies and banks that are recruiting for our course. Bank manager jobs are the major roles offered in our course. I like my course.
Infrastructure: There are good facilities in our college hostels, like good bedroom good toilets good bathroom, but because so many students are in hostels, bathing times are very tight. But the college hostel foods are not good but average foods there are sports grounds available in our college hostels so we should play free-time football in our grounds.
Faculty: There are some teachers who are helping and teaching good quality and giving good explanations about the subject, but only some teachers are very friendly. The past percentage of college students all over in the semester exam is 75%. Some subjects are very tough, and some subjects are very easy, so many students fail in problem subjects.
Other: I hear about eco-mini students passing out with B.Com. graduation and getting jobs in so many industries abroad or in the nation, so I will choose this course.

B.Tech. in Computer Science and Engineering - Batch of 2027
4.6
4Placements4Infrastructure5Faculty5Crowd & Campus Life5Value for Money
I think it's one of the best engineering college here in Trivandrum .
Placements: The salary packages are great here. Out of all the engineering colleges in Trivandrum, our college is ranked 2nd or 6th out of all the engineering colleges in Kerala. Many top recruiting companies recruit from our college. An average of 8 lpa is offered. Many internships are also offered here.
Infrastructure: Facilities here are great, but the college campus is small compared to other colleges. But all the required facilities are there, like libraries, labs, classrooms, etc. Hostel facilities are also provided for the students. Mess food is okayish. Sports and games are also as important here as academics.
Faculty: Teachers are great and helpful. They'd clear up your doubts. The curriculum is relevant as per your course. It makes the students ready for their future needs. Initial semesters are okay, but as we move on, it becomes tough (I don't know much since I'm a first-year student).
Other: I chose computer science because my parents had already been asking my relatives for their opinion during my 12th grade years about which branch to choose for my engineering degree. Most of them (who are already placed in different IT sectors) suggested CS. This is the reason why I took CS even though I was a bio student. Festttssss are great! It lasts till midnight. It's awesome. All kinds of programs and events—everything is there. It's real fun. Students from different colleges will come to our festivals. Our festivals are kind of popular here.
