ACADEMICS & FACULTY

Dialy routine is excellent. Students have the freedom to choose time table suiting them. Projects and assignments are minimum allowing students to work in their own interest. Teachers are good but not that good. They teach as they wish.


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

Waves the cultural fest is the main festival. Clubs on campus are not worth. They just exist for outings and other bullshit stuff. They hardly do any work.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
  • Clubs are pretty good and Sports infrastructure is not that great and especially what frustrates a BITSGian and a cricket fanatic is that we cannot play in our own cricket ground since it is maintained by the BCCI.
  • Student diversity is, in fact, great earlier one ethnic group used to dominate the campus but slowly the situation is changing and sex ratio is around 1:7.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
  • We unlike the other elite colleges in India do not follow mid sem and final exams schedule here and this is what irritates me the most because when we are done with one set of exams the other set of exams will be waiting around the corner and statistically there wouldn't be gap more than 1 month between the exams and in between we need to organise our festivals and that becomes hectic for an average student most of the time.
  • Quality of teaching is good in some courses at BITS and frankly, it is not that great in electronics-related courses and hopefully, it would change in the future.

Academic Overview:

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.

The pursuit of excellence requires a transparent and honest approach. At BITS Pilani, we have always believed this to be true and are one of the few top institutes in India to favour a ‘Merit Only’ based admission policy.

To ensure complete transparency in student intake in the undergraduate courses we have instituted BITSAT, a fully online exam. BITSAT tests students on their aptitude for Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. BITSAT also has a section on English and Logical reasoning, thus becoming a complete analysis of a candidate’s intelligence and capability.

Mission:

Our mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.

The Institute is committed to generating, disseminating, and preserving knowledge, and to working with others to bring this knowledge to bear on the world's great challenges. BITS is dedicated to providing its students with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community.
