Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] Reviews

Bachelor of Engineering [BE] (Electrical and Electronics Engineering), batch of 2020

There are 17 boys hostels and 2 girls hostels. Most of the rooms are single rooms, although you might get a two-sharing room in your first year at least. All the students compulsorily have to stay on campus except in certain cases when their family stays in Goa. We have three dining halls and numerous eateries on campus. The food is not spectacular, but better than you'd expect from a college mess. The mess fare is already paid for in the semester fee. They also become night canteens from 11 pm to 2 am, in case anyone has any late-night cravings!

Our classrooms and labs are air-conditioned and well maintained. We have a huge library as well. WiFi is usually satisfactory, but we sometimes have speed issues. There is also a daily data limit of 3 GB (increases to 5 GB during exams), and many websites are blocked. 

Bachelor of Engineering [BE], batch of 2021

16 hostels in total with nice infrastructure and fees per month being 22k(INR) P.A. No PGs allowed. All students have to stay on the campus in the hostels. Foor is bullshit. Only a day or two is good in a month. Cost per meal is Rs.40(INR). Classrooms, Labs, and academic buildings are good and wifi is also good. Works fine but the only problem is the internet limit with 2GB of data per day.

Master of Science [M.Sc] (Mathematics), batch of 2020
  • 7 hostels in the A wing and 6 on the C wing, hostel fee is a little over INR 30000 per month which is pretty reasonable considering the fact that the hostel facilities are brilliant.
  • BITS Goa is one of the only major colleges in India which provides rooms with single occupancy.
  • Mess food is a delight here. There is a lavish spread on most days and the mess bill comes up to INR 100 per day.
