Bits is one of the best colleges indian education system has ever seen.It is one of few colleges which give strong competitions to many foreign universities in the matter of academics and other activities. Among the 4 campuses of BITS Pilani University, this is the best campus in terms of Infrastructure,Facilities , Faculties ,Coding Culture & most importantly the student crowd.The best part of bits pilani goa is that the teachers are really really helpful. The other staff faculty is good too, and the campus is really beautiful.The festivals held are really good and we get roop learn allot during these festivals whether it's a technical or cultural fest.The hostel rooms are clean , well maintained and have all the facilities that will never ever remind you of your Home.The professors are highly educated and experienced. Most of them have done their PhD's from IIT or from other highly reputable universities.If we talk about affordability affordability, the fees is marginally high than other reputed colleges , but the infrastructure and facilities provided are the best as compared to others. . I would strongly recommend to every engineering aspirants for coming to BITS Pilani Goa Campus to enjoy the college life as well as build a promising a

The college campus is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful campuses in India. The academic block is called the B Dome which consists of classrooms, laboratories, faculty chambers and 4 lecture theaters, all fully air conditioned and with wifi. There are currently 15 hostels, with new ones coming up, a student activity center with various sports facilities such as badminton, basketball, football, squash, tennis, table tennis and more.There is also a cricket ground. The B Dome is connected t the computer center and the 2 floored library. The library is open till 2 am during examinations. The library is however underfunded. The college has good industry exposure with a number of companies coming for placements. There are regular telepresence as ell live talks by entrepreneurs, engineers and businessmen, especially during our Technical fest and TEDx. College life was enjoyable for me because it was always bustling with activity. Also, a number of quality projects are offered by the faculty helps one get hands on experience. There are a number of clubs and departments catering to a wide variety of interests. The junior-senior relationship is very open and amicable. The three fests, cultural fest Waves, technical fest Quark and Sports fest Spree see participation from all over the country and feature top artists and performers. One can always take a leisurely stroll on a lazy evening and the painted sky never fails to amaze. The placement scenario is good for the CS students and others interested in IT jobs. However, more opportunities need to be created for core jobs. All hostels have single occupancy rooms. There is wifi as well LAN connection in all hostels. There are two messes which provide clean and relatively good food as opposed to the general notion about hostel food. There are many eateries on campus including CCD and Monginis as well as a small shopping complex, salon, laundry facility and fruits and vegetable shops. There is no hostel in time for both girls and boys. The college professors are well versed with their subjects. However, they need to make the classes more engaging and interactive. The student diversity in college is a healthy mix of people from all backgrounds. There are a few region specific groups, mainly for the celebration of their cultural festivals. But, in general people do not restrict themselves to regional groups. The college fees is moderately high. But, merit scholarships as well as merit cum need scholarships are provided.

Yes you read the title right BITS is India's only institute which does not have a quota for caste based reservation. Also it is the only private college which is never related with the word donation. Though it is a private college it is still among the top 5 engineering colleges in any list beating more than 70% top IITs. Bits is also known for it's strong alumni base which includes top names like Prithviraj Chauhan the former CM of Maharashtra, Sanjay Mehrotra the founder and president of Sandisk and many more popular names. Bits also provides students with the most flexible education structure in India and It is the only institute with 0% attendance policy. It is also highly rated for personality development of it's students.I can say also this because I am student of one of the current batches of Bits, Pilani.

One of the Premier Institutes of India

Posted on 07 Feb' 17 by Mehul Kasliwal
Batch of 2020 | BE Computer Science Engineering
BITS Pilani, K.K Birla Goa Campus is one of the best places I have ever been in my entire life. And studying here for the next 4 years would be a dream come true. Among the 4 campuses of BITS Pilani University, this is the best campus in terms of Infrastructure,Facilities , Faculties ,Coding Culture & most importantly the student crowd. With no reservation policy the students that enter this college are among the brightest minds of India , and it is one of the best experience to have been pitted against those minds in various activities and competitions.Infrastructure wise , I could not find any other campus better than this ( I have been to Pilani and Hyderabad campus before) . The classrooms, Auditorium , Student Activity Centre and the Playgrounds are of the top-notch quality and highly maintained. The hostel rooms (Single Occupancy is the best thing) are quite large to accomodate 1 person. The hostel rooms are clean , well maintained and have all the facilities that will never ever remind you of your Home.With Washrooms maintained and cleaned everyday, the hostels also have a Badminton court . The hostels have one common room with a 40" LED Tv and a Table tennis table and 2 carrom boards. The scene is quite amazing when India v/s Pakistan cricket goes till the final over and the whole hostel assembles infront of that screen.The mess food is one of the best in India, with top class caterers being hired to manage the mess. The menu of the mess is decided by the student body and is thus highly flexible. The professors are highly educated and experienced. Most of them have done their PhD's from IIT or from other highly reputable universities. One of the faculty of humanities is from Stanford University which clearly resembles the top notch quality of professors. Talking about the student crowd, as there is no reservation policy the students are highly talented and sincere. Being equally good in sports and academics is the best quality which I found in my colleagues. Having Squash State rank 2 player and CAT topper from my campus is one of the things which I brag about when I go to my hometown.Coming to affordability, although the fees is marginally high than other reputed colleges , but the infrastructure and facilities provided are the best as compared to others. I would recommend coming to BITS Pilani Goa Campus to enjoy the college life as well as build a fascinating and a rewarding career.

About College:

The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) in the state of Goa has its origins to more than a century back. In 1901, the patriarch of the Birla family started a small school in town of Pilani in Rajasthan. By 1929, it evolved to form a High School, which later got the recognition of a Degree College. The Birla Education Trust was established in the 1940s. By the 1950s, higher level degrees in the areas of Arts, Commerce and Pharmacy were also now taught at this campus. 1964 was the year when the institute now acclaimed as the BITS- Pilani was officially founded in. The Ford Foundation was behind this establishment as the founders wanted to curate an institute on the lines of the great Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). BITS also became the first Indian university to open a campus abroad, which it did with the Dubai branch in the year 2000. In 2004, the Goa campus was inaugurated. Further in 2008, one was opened in Hyderabad. 

It is a Deemed University which conducts its own entrance test for admissions called the BITSAT (BITS Aptitude Test). The Goa and Hyderabad campuses work as extension centres. This paper is conducted for the 3 centres of the BITS (Birla Institute of Technology & Science) brand that are located at Pilani, Hyderabad and Goa. The three- hour paper comprises of 150 questions from 4 different sections. These sections include the usual ones- Physics (40), Chemistry (40) & Mathematics (45) - as well as an additional one for English (15 marks) & Logical Reasoning (10 marks). 

There are several courses on offer here, at the BITS Goa campus, right from the UG till the doctoral levels. The terminologies used by the BITS group are slightly different from that elsewhere. At the UG level, courses are known as First Degrees, as several subjects within it are common to all disciplines. At this level, the B.E. and B. Pharm. programmes are available. At the master’s level, there is the MSc. programme that can be taken both as an honours for a particular discipline as well as specifically for technology programmes. At the next level, programmes are known as Advanced Degrees. One can do an M.E., an M. Pharma or an MBA now. The BITS Pilani was one of the first engineering colleges in India to have a programme for management because the administrators realized that there was a massive need for qualified engineer- managers in the booming industrial field. Doctoral programmes can be taken up across the disciplines offered here. This PhD. can be undertaken both on and off campus. 

The B.E. can be pursued in several engineering areas at the Goa campus which are in – Mechanical, Chemical, Computer Science, Manufacturing, Electrical & Electronics and in Electronics & Instrumentation. The MSc. can be pursued in Economics alone while the tech- based one may be in Information Systems. The M.E. too has a plethora of options such as in – Biotechnology, Embedded Systems, Chemical, Design Engineering and in Software Systems. The M. pharm. programmes are not being offered yet at the Goa campus. The entire academics may be divided over ten different departments, each with expertise in its own area. These are in the fields of – Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science & Information Systems, Chemical Engineering, Economics, Humanities & Management, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical & Electronics/Instrumentation and in Mechanical Engineering. 

Research is another very important area at the BITS Goa. There is an Academic Research Division which looks after any upgrades to be made in the course curriculum. Conferences and workshops are held the year- round. Some recent conferences have focused on topics such as – Cell Biology, Literature- Cinema Interface and on Reading & Writing in Asia. Periodic showcases are held where new developments at BITS Goa or elsewhere are displayed for the industry, governments or even the general public. The institute is also an active collaborator with the government and industry through sponsored consulting projects. A separate division known as Sponsored Research and Consultancy Division looks after this entire mandate. It collates funding from various sources, which could be internal, industrial, from national funding agencies for international ones too. 

To further the research credentials, several centres of excellence have also been opened up by the BITS Goa. At present, there are centres for the areas of – Technical Education, Doctoral Training, Teaching Learning and one for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship. All this focus on academics and research has ensured that the college has forged a very good reputation on recruiters. This in turn helps in massively boosting up the placement process here. Some of the key recruiters over recent seasons have been the likes of – Lowe Lintas, Mahindra & Mahindra, Mediatek, Microsoft IDC, Apple, Amazon, Anarock, Accenture, Barclays, Bajaj Auto, Byju, Birla Century, American Express, Nomura, Novartis, OYO Rooms, Nestaway, Michelin, Paypal, Deutsche Bank, Ericsson, EXL, Flipkart, Sandisk, RIL, Qualcomm, Siemens, Genpact, TCS, Honeywell, Infosys, InMobi, Uber, Veritas, Tejas, Tata Motors, Goldman Sachs, IBM, HSBC, Intel, L&T, ZS, Wipro, Walmart, Telstra and JP Morgan amongst others.
