The rack range that you can aim for BTech CSE in KEAM exam varies from private colleges to government colleges. Still I'll try to give you an estimate of the rank range you should be aiming for better chances of admission in CSE.
Kindly note that this is based on last year's state cut-off rank & is subject to changes.
College of Engg, Trivandrum - 479
TKM Clg of Engg, Kollam - 113
Government Model Engg College, Thrikkakra - 1305
Government College of Engg, Kannur - 4100
& MANY MORE COLLEGES..
I'd say somewhere in the range of 500-2500 will give you good colleges for CSE.
