  • There's the student union, the departments to organise the festivals, film making club, music club, dance club, drama clubs, press, review commitee to allot funds for festivals, Placement Unit, Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, Consultancy Club, Shell, BAJA, Team Anant, Astro Club, the sports teams et cetera. A new club is formed every second day. BITSians are very ethusiastic
  • Management : Interface, Tech : APOGEE, Sports : BITS Open Sports Meet, Cultural: Oasis
  • The college has a lot to offer if you are willing to expand your horizons. The seniors are extremely helpful and see you more as a friend than a junior. It is very easy to pursue one's non-academic as well technical interests. BITS Pilani is ranked number 1 by leading media houses in terms of all round development of a student. The zero attendance policy of the college gives you a lot of time to choose what you want to do in life. And Pilani is a nice and quiet place to be. Long morning walks, bird watching, star gazing are our evryday activities 
  • Classes start at 8AM and go on till 5PM. Students get to make their own time-table, which means they can chose which class to attend at what time and under which instructor. On an average, the classwork is not more than 30 hours a week. Surprise quizzes and assignments keep the attendance high in the classes despite the zero attendance policy of BITS Pilani. Mid-Semester exams and Comprehensive Exams require the suspension of classwork 
  • Best teaching techniques are applied by the teachers. But still students shy away from attending classes unless they suspect a surprize test in the class
  • One would like the teachers a lot if classes are attended regularly. And about those who decide to do otherwise, consequences would reflect on the grade cards most definitely

  • Routine here at BITS is up to you to the maximum extent. Students have to plan their own time table according to their convenience and teachers available,ofcourse.But the most important and note-worthy thing here is that BITS follows a 0% attendence policy i.e.there is no minimum attendance required to pass a semester. Professors, Lecturers and P.H.D. students take classes at specific times and its the student's choice of a teacher and his/her time. On an average there are 25-30 hours of classes a week from 8 a.m. to 4.50 p.m. every day except half day till 1 on saturdays. Assignments, quizzes and tests happen at a regular basis. There are only two major examinations, mid-semester and end-semester comprehensive exams. BITS follows a continuous evaluation scheme. This is without any doubt a great boost to the academic performnce of the students.
  • Teaching system here is quiet thoruogh. Apart from the lectures where more than 100 students sit in one hall there are seperate tutorial classes as well where a small group nearly 40 students are tought the same thing with extra detail and attention. Some P.H.D. students do not have enough knowledge or interest to teach in the tutorial class where it becomes a problem. But not to worry there are surveys at the end of each semester to judge the teacher in every aspect. BITS being a tier-1 engineering college in India with no reservation of seats ,except for board toppers, is in collaboration with world leading universities like M.I.T. and Oxford and follows their course pattern.
  • Overall experience at BITS is life changing. With a ton of co-curricular activities a child's personality is developed.
  • Clubs, departments and associations are the soul of BITS. There are a huge number of clubs for almost all activities. Every student can take part in anything and everything.Many popular societies like CEL, ACM, NSS etc also exist on campus.
  • Fests are the very important to the college. Oasis the cultural fest is the second biggest fest in all of india. It is completely student organised and funded and has a footfall of abut 5000-6000. Other fests are BOSM (BITS open sports meet) - sports fest , APOGEE - technical fest and INTERFACE - management fest.
  • College life is very enjoyable. Utilizing time can be earnt here in the best way. These 4 years of your college will be the best years of your life, i can gaurantee that.

About Birla Institute of Technology and Science, [BITS] Pilani

The Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani is an all-India Institute for higher education. The primary motive of BITS is to "train young men and women able and eager to create and put into action such ideas, methods, techniques and information". The Institute is a dream come true of its founder late Mr G.D.Birla - an eminent industrialist, a participant in Indian freedom struggle and a close associate of the Father of Indian Nation late Mr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi). What started in early 1900s as a small school, blossomed into a set of colleges for higher education, ranging from the Humanities to Engineering until 1964 when all these colleges amalgamated to culminate into a unique Indian University of International standing. This university was christened as the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, known to many as BITS, Pilani.

Over the years, BITS has provided the highest quality technical education to students from all over India admitted on the basis of merit. Its graduates may be found throughout the world in all areas of engineering, science and commerce. BITS symbolizes the maturing of Indian technical ability and "can-do" entrepreneurial spirit, especially as derived from the private sector. BITS is located in the Vidya Vihar campus adjacent to the town of Pilani in Rajasthan

Offered at the first tier, these degrees have nomenclature like B.E. (Hons.), B.Pharm. (Hons.), M.M.S (Master of Management Studies), M.Sc. (Hons.), M.Sc. (Tech.), and M.A. (Hons.). These are level wise equivalent degrees. They are considered to be integrated degrees for two reasons: (i) the degree program includes several cross disciplinary common coursessuch as basic math and science and, (ii) no intermediate degree, like, B.Sc., B.Sc. (Hons.), B.A., B.A. (Hons), etc. is awarded. These degrees are modular in structure and academic requirements are spelt out in terms of the number of courses studied rather than the number of years. All our programmes are designed in a way to facilitate completion within eight semesters. Our flexible academic policy gives students the option to complete their degree both at a faster pace (finishing it earlier than 8 semesters) as well as at a slower pace to finish it in later than 8 semesters.
