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 
ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • 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

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • The routine at Birla Institute of Technology and Science, [BITS] Pilani is up to you to the maximum extent. Students have to plan their own timetable according to their convenience and teachers available, of course. But the most important and noteworthy thing here is that BITS follows a 0% attendance 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 Saturday's. 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 performance of the students.
  • Teaching system here is quite thorough. Apart from the lectures where more than 100 students sit in one hall there are separate tutorial classes as well where a small group nearly 40 students are taught 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 Birla Institute of Technology and Science, [BITS] Pilani. 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.

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.
