ACADEMICS & FACULTY

Be it the chilly winter mornings when you can barely feel your hands or the moist hot days of summers, classes at BITS start at 8 a.m. in the morning and end in the evening at 5 p.m. The duration of each lecture is 50mins. 10mins at the end of each hour are given so that the students can go to their next class. Here, there is no fixed class. Rather, since the students make their timetable, choose their classes and professors on their own, they need to go to different classes for each subject. It is funny how you keep changing classrooms for each course. There are exams and weekly tutorial tests going on throughout the semester at the end of which there is a comprehensive exam for every course. 

BITS has one of the best faculty and the methods of teaching are very different. They follow both print and digital media. Lectures are taken int he lecture hall with the help of the PPTs. Students read from these PPTs as well as books for every subject. Rote learning is not promoted. There are many experiments and lab courses that are conducted to give practical experiences to the students. 


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

BITS believes in providing the overall development to the students. That is the reason there is always some activity, festival celebration or College fests going on in the campus. There are 3 major college fests: 1. BOSM (Sports Fest), 2. OASIS (Cultural fest), 3. APOGEE (Technical fest).

Students from all over India participate in these fests. These are managed and run by various departments, clubs and associations in the campus. Students become a part of any of these depending on their area of interest. For instance, if someone likes singing, they join the Music club, if they like dancing, then Dance club, etc. Life at BITS-PILANI is very fun. There is always some or the other event happening on campus that you can never get bored.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

College life here is awesome. A person can nurture his talents quite easily here.
