Good placements and really good infrastructure

Posted on 17 Jun' 17 by bhumi sharma
Batch of 2015 | BE Civil Engineering Hons
Placements in core sectors are less as is the case with all the engineering colleges, but there are ample opportunities in IT, consultancy and analytics sectors. Over 90% of the students who sit in the placement period are placed every year, their offers ranging from over 1 crore per annum to maybe less than 5 lacs per annum depending on the companies and their performance. You will face one of the best faculty members in the country here. Our vice-chancellor, has been respected with India's Best Professor Award. About the other faculty members, they are very helpful, well experienced in their fields. You can approach them any time to clear your doubts or to seek help in any of your research or project work.

A Wonderland Ride

Batch of 2019 | BE Electrical and Electronics Engineering Hons
The college is one of the premier institutes of the country. Especially the Practice School Program, which is a reason for the fine corporate exposure, lets it stand out uniquely as compared to any other Engineering Institution. The college culture is a 53 year old legacy, which has now developed into a structured system, addressing almost all the interests which a student may have. Even, the startup culture is becoming prominent now. Zero Reservation Policy has been the star feature of the college, as it has actually enriched the quality of student crowd in the campus. Still the faculty quality could improve largely for some departments. More focus should be given to the practical engineering knowledge, while teaching the courses. Placements can be improved a bit by increasing the no. of industry tie-ups with core companies, which actually is on its way for the college. The college hostels, well most of them are on the old lines only. The good news anyways is, almost half of them have been renovated now, and other would be done in a year or so. The fees is the biggest headache for any middle-class student. they do have academic scholarships, but the fees amount has been on a rise from the past few years. But, believe me, if you invest your time and money here, I bet you won't regret the decision and would end up with an awesome college experience.

About College:

The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) in the town of Pilani in Rajasthan has its origins to more than a century back. In 1901, the patriarch of the Birla family started a small school in this town. 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). This paper is conducted for the 3 centres of the BITS (Birla Institute of Technology & Science) brand that is 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 Pilani 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. the programme that can be taken both as an honour 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 Pilani campus which are in – Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Computer Science, Manufacturing, Electrical & Electronics and in Electronics & Instrumentation. The MSc. can be pursued in the areas of – Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biological Sciences, Finance and in Economics. The tech-based MSc. meanwhile may be pursued in Information Systems, Finance, General Studies and in Engineering Technology. The M.E. too has a plethora of options such as in – Biotechnology, Petroleum Engineering, Structural Engineering, Infrastructure Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Communication Engineering, Computer Science, Microelectronics, Embedded Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Manufacturing Systems Engineering, Design Engineering, Software Systems and in Power Electronics & Drives. One can take up a specialization in Pharmaceutics or in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the M. Pharm. programme. 

Research is another very important area at the BITS Pilani. The major areas where such research takes place includes- Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Bio-Engineering, Economics & Finance, Humanities & Social Sciences, Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Computer Science & Information Systems and in Biological Sciences. Conferences and workshops are held the year- round. Some recent conferences have focused on topics such as Sports Engineering, Media Culture & Ethics, Structural & Geotechnical Engineering, Teaching & Research in Indian Academia, and for Solid State Ionics. Periodic showcases are held where new developments at BITS Pilani or elsewhere are displayed for the industry, governments or even the general public. The BITS Pilani is also an active collaborator with the government and industry through sponsored consulting projects. Several pharma companies, for example, are working closely with the institute. 

To further the research credentials, several centres of excellence have also been opened up by the BITS Pilani. At present, there are centres for the areas of – Embedded Controller Application, Technology Innovation, Robotics & Intelligent Systems, Renewable Energy & Environment Development, Material Science & Technology and for Research on Educational Innovation & Institution Development. Besides, there are quite a few specialized labs here. The students and faculty have also contributed towards several patents being won by the institute. The Department of Biological Sciences and the one for Pharmacy lead the way. 

All this has contributed towards excellent ranks received by the BITS Pilani across platforms. The QS World University Rankings has placed it within the 801-1000 band worldwide, 187th for Asia and 109th among the BRICS nations. The Times Higher Education Rankings has also placed the institute within the 801-1000 band for the world. The band for Asia here has been within 201-250th and 196th among the BRICS and Emerging Economies. The BITS Pilani has also been ranked 19th overall, 17th among universities, 5th among pharmacy colleges and 17th within the engineering category as part of the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018 exercise.
