Good placements and really good infrastructure

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.

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.

Environment is just too nice to be here.

BITS Pilani is a premier college to pursue Engineering, it provides you one of the best infrastructures in India and it is also improving continuously under "Project Parivartan", so as per infrastructure it is very good.A Significant number of companies visit every year to recruit from BITS Pilani so placements are good here.The quality of students and the freedom to do whatever a person wants what makes BITS what it is.There is a 0% attendance policy in BITS, there is no compulsion on a student towards the studies as you may see in IITs and NITs but this doesn't mean that BITSian don't study, there is a continuous evaluation in every course in BITS so this give a lot of trouble to people who skip lectures.There are many clubs and department, you just name an activity that you are interested in and you will find a club which organizes it. Its a wonderful place to get to meet some of the best brains of the country. The best part is all of them are here not just to study but to get the best four years if their life by learning as many skills as possible. This makes this college a level apart from other engineering colleges in india. Moreover mo reservation policy ensures a fully deserved and brainy crowd presence. The nab( new administrative building) giving the view of the clock tower is the highlight of the college. It gives me a sense of pride every morning going through that place. The faculty is no doubt best at their fields and the academic flexibility ensures students get to pursue only what they want. The hostels are in really good shape and with clean and spacious rooms. The mess provides a truly edible food with a good variety. The playing areas are many and lets us pursue which ever sport we want.i would recommend it to any junior who wants a good placement in the future and wishes to have the best four years of his or her life in college.

BITS Pilani offers a diverse range of degree and is well focused on academics, the courses are structured in a way of learning rather than memorizing. The college gives considerable amount of freedom to choose what courses to take. The professors are really helpful and help with whatever problems a student may encounter. The students are well versed in various fields and there is a culture to work hard.

Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences, Pilani is also famous as BITS Pilani has currently four campuses running around the globe, namely Pilani, Goa, Hyderabad and Dubai campus. Pilani Campus has World Class Auditorium, Very nice Library and high performance computer laboratories. College life is a lot happening. There are a lot of clubs and departments who work for the fests and also for their hobbies. I myself was the coordinator of one of them. Hostels and messes are not bad. You can easily run through your four years without complaining much. Apart from messes, there are many food outlets. The unique system of Practice School I gives industry exposure. BITS is the first university to adopt this system.

The college has a number of laboratories and equipment for all areas of research work. Some of them include, NMR spectroscopy lab, 3D printers, workshops, Chemical Laboratories, Transportation for Civil Engineering, Highway, Materials Labs, CAD Lab, Heat Transfer and IC Engine Lab, Robotics Lab for Mechanical and a very famous O-labs for the EEE department. The faculty members are from well-esteemed colleges. They look into both administrative as well as research work. Apart from this, the student life is vivid with numerous clubs and departments. If you have any hobby, you will definitely find someone whom you can work it with. The placement in BITS is almost 100%, with very good companies giving good packages as well. Hostel and mess food is something which you should get along with. But when there is everything else, this can be neglected.

BITS pilani is a very awesome campus. There is a lot of scope for allround development than in any other institution. BITS taught me time management. Here the education system ,courses offered in various semesters are good and worthy. The first thing which crosses our mind when we hear about BITS is private institute. It is top among private institutions and 6th among the country. Oasis, 2nd largest fest in India is cultural fest of BITS pliani. Campus will be spacious. There are lot of clubs, departments where you can join and conduct events. You can improve your skills as there will be lot of free time. The faculty, Infrastructure is good. The interactions are conducted among students and faculty. There will be good number of students from different parts of india. Campus placement is good. I like clock tower most in bits and then NAB(new academic building). It is the best place to join if you didn't get in top 5 IIT's.

It is an amazing campus, with incredible infrastructure and opportunities. Its a premier institution and it delivers the standards. It has an iconic clock tower which is nostalgic to most alumni as it provides an encouraging environment. Bachelor and Masters programmes are offered and approximately there are 4500 students on campus at all times. Pilani itself is isolated and hence enhances the internal social culture to be self sustainable. In turn providing a healthy Campus life.

BITS Pilani, the only private university among top 5 quality engineering colleges of India is known for its quality education. It has built a wonderful campus with great infrastructure and facilities. The college infrastructure is always improving under "Project Parivartan". The college also provides great exposure to industrial world through its practice school programs in which more than 300 companies all over India are included. It gives a student all the freedom that he/she can have, like 0% attendance system for attending lectures, no curfews, etc. These freedoms make this college life different from other colleges as it makes a student feel the responsibilities that arrive with the freedom and help him/her shape his/her own life during the course of 4-5 years. BITS Pilani also has excellent sports facilites for almost all of the sports like hockey, badminton, squash, etc. In conclusion, i would like to say that this college is the best place to give your life a form.

The EEE department of BITS Pilani is one of the best in the country. O-labs of BITS is famous around Asia. The library of BITS is amongst the top libraries throughout Asia. BITS does not only compete in India level, it competes with the best universities in Asia. Placement in BITS is almost full on full. Even the packages which you get are quite high for a beginner. You will not get the amount of exposure which you get in BITS in any other private engineering college in India.

BITS is the best private engineering college in India. Here, you will be able to a lot of things other than your academics too. This doesn't mean that your academics will be neglected and you'll focus only on extra co-curricular activities. The placement is very very good. Companies visiting include Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Oracle, etc for Computer Science. Bajaj, Tata Motors, Hero, Honda for Mechanical. Being a part of any organizing committee of the various fests happening in BITS adds to your Resume and gives you some position of responsibility which will be useful further.

Bits Pilani-Not the best but better than the rest

Batch of 2021 | M.Sc Physics Hons
Coming to BITS Pilani as a fresher was a very thrilling experience. The huge campus right in the middle of a desert laden town Pilani amazed everybody during their first visit. BITS Pilani is probably the only college in India based on the working model of Massachusetts Institute of Technology,which is undoubtedly one of the best engineering institutions in the world. BITS is one of the most versatile engineering colleges in the country. The curriculum involves tonnes of non engineering related stuff in electives like Humanities,Biology,Economics. There are many departments and countless number of clubs where the members are recruited based on their interest and knowledge about that field. Though it is an engineering college, entrepreneurship is encouraged as much as technical education.The NAB (New Academic Building) is a group of world class lecture rooms with audio visual support. As far as industrial exposure is concerned, BITS is one of the most underrated colleges. The curriculum itself involves two practice schools(PS1 and PS2) in the summers where undergrads actually get to be involved in some work-cum-learn association. A course in Finance is also offered. The thing which makes college life enjoyable is simple-The campus culture. The hostels have old infrastructure but each one is being renovated one by one. Since there is no reservation in the entrance exam, everyone here is talented and competitive. There are students from all over the country and yet it feels home-like to everyone. As far as affordability is concerned, BITS being a private institution charges more than most of the institutes. But it isn't out of bounds at all and totally worth every penny. Though I'm a first year student, my overall experience has been great so far and I'd highly recommend this college which is so often overshadowed by IIT's.

Our college has everything. Hostels are huge and you get to play anything in your hostel QT. Cleanliness is mostly taken care of well. Mess food is healthy, though taste is sometimes bad. The events, fests, sports activities, technical competitions add to your exposure and you learn something everyday. The student crowd is the best. Whatever help you need, you will get it. There are always people to guide you and motivate you. And everyone is exceptionally talented. Being a private college, fees is a bit high but there are Merit-Cum Need Scholarships to make up for it. Also you can get an education loan very easily if required.

Bits Pilani : An Abode of Knowledge

TUSHAR SHARMA
Posted on 10 Feb' 17 by TUSHAR SHARMA
Batch of 2018 | BE Mechanical Engineering Hons
BITS Pilani has always reflected its image as the best private engineering college in India. With world class facilities like Auditoriums, Tele-Communication Room etc., this beholds the largest, densest concentration of brilliant, young, idealistic minds in India as of today. Our graduates compete with best in the world. Our alumni have scaled heights in fields scarcely imaginable- from the youngest prof ever at Wharton to the founder of the world's first commercial e-mail service to inventor of modern-day outsourcing to the first Indian to manage Manchester United. I personally feel pride in studying in this prestigious college. But 'Nothing is perfect'. With those 90's feeble structure, there has always been a feeling of penury when it comes to living standards. The vicinity of the college is a decaying element to the excellence BITS Pilani radiates. I do feel unfortunate for not being able to find means of entertainment we find in a metro city but the exquisite college sports facilities make up for the languishing self. It presents great industrial exposure to the students through its Practice School Program. Even though being remotely located, highly reputed big MNCs doesn’t shy away from coming to the college for placements. That being said, I still think that there is large scope for improvement in this sector. Apart from this, I would also like to acknowledge the hard work our faculty is putting in to help us achieve great feat. Concluding, I would say that I personally feel pride studying in this prestigious college and would like to recommend it to other young minds as well.

BITS Pilani boasts of being an Oasis in the desert of Rajasthan. The infrastructure cannot be matched by many other institutes. The main pro of this college is the vision set by the founder, G.D Birla. The amount of exposure one gets in this college is undoubtedly the most in India. BITS has a unique Practice School Program. Students go on a summer internship after their second year. Also, there are numerous clubs, departments and sports activities to keep the schedule packed. Mess food is also good. And the hostels are very good. No where else do you get a single room right from your second year, but BITS. The placements are almost 100% for the Bachelor's degree.

BITS Pilani is ranked to be amongst the top 10 most beautiful campuses in India. Along with being a scenic marvel, the institute is undergoing renovation under project 'Parivartan', which aims to put it amongst the top World universities in terms of architecture. As an electrical and electronics engineering student, I am benefitted a lot by the large no. of laboratories available for us. Especially, Oyster Lab, which is a $50 million initiative by BITSConnect, and is present only in 3 places all over India, including BITS Pilani, is particularly helpful for VLSI students. All in all, architecture wise, I feel BITS Pilani is just superb. BITS offers many ways to get industrial exposure. Firstly, there are two compulsary university provided trainings in companies, one for sophomore year students, and another for final year students. Because this training has now been going on for a lot of time under the name Practice School-I and Pracitce School-II, this is so much better than normal internships. The company employees seem to know what to expect of students, and the projects offered are thus well suited to us. Also, BITS offers SOP, LOP and DOP courses, which are project type graded courses. In these courses, the students have the flexibility of choosing the instructors they feel like working under. Also the topic of project is chosen by the student himself, and is generally a research interest of the supervisor faculty too. Moreover, presence of CEERI, Pilani as an adjoining building to BITS offers students the opportunity to work under scientists in various fields. This is great for both research and job oriented students. The college life, as many will say, is the best time of one's life. BITS has been magical to me. I have made friends I will not forget for my life. I have learnt to learn. I have tried so many new things: may it be sports, may it be the art to speak in new crowd, may it be holding yourself together in pressure. My college life has been great, but not easy. BITS offers you flexibility by not imposing attendence compulsion, and thus tries to inculcate discipline not by imposing it on you. Here I have learnt to decide for myself, and this is one of the most important skills I have learnt. BITS, unlike many other colleges, does not have same hostels for students throughout the college life. Each year we are moved to new hostels. The hostels for first year have double rooms, and single rooms for students after that. There is a common room in each hostel, where the whole hostel sits together for cricket and football matches. That's some feeling. Also there are badminton and volleyball courts in all hostels. Some hostels also have their own football fields too. I have mixed feelings about my Professors. I really love some of them.. I love how much they know about their subjects. They have always wanted to make their students love what they do. I look upto them, to be someday as good as them at the things I want to pursue. However, there are certain classes I think could be better taught. But all in all, I would say the faculty at my college is good. If I was asked for what more skills I would want my Professors to have, it would have to be the power of explanation. Sometimes even the most knowledgeable of professors are not able to clarify certain doubts and concepts, I wish that were not the case. BITS has amazing crowd. BITS has admissions solely on the basis of merit. There is absolutely no reservation at all. This helps bringing in the best of students from all over the country. Here I have met people, who can make the most difficult things appear easy. I have seen the best dancers, singers, sportsmen(and sportswomen). Some of my peers are already publishing in highly reputed journals. I feel really lucky to be amongst such talented people. BITS has a fee structure close to Rs. 1 Lakh per semmester. But for the students, who do really well, there are merit scholarships, which can give a discount as high as 80% on tuition fee. Also there is a scheme called (merit cum need scholarship), for students whose family income is below a certain threshold, provided their grade point is above 6. I feel lucky to have got a chance to come to study at BITS.

The institute infrastructure, expecially the new academic building is very good. The institute library has an enormous number of books. The campus environment is very nice and safe and also there is a gym for recreation. The faculty members are very helpful and have their own times given for doubt clearing sessions. The lectures and tutorials are very effective. The hostel is also good, though some block are a bit old, but students don't have problems dealing with that. Food is also very hygienic and balanced. Also, the academic counsellong cell helps the students a lot. There are three main college fests which tests the talents of the students. The registration system is transparent and organised.

Awesome student life with studies and industry exposure and friends as family. you can find every type of students here, studies, outdoor gamers, indoor gamers, computer gamers, etc. we have too many beaches here so outing are like on next level. coding environment of campus is also on another level, nearly everyone either from computer science or not do one or other type of coding. senior are too helpful, they are present at each and every step of your life be it academic or personal. infrastructure is too awesome, hostels are well planed, security is properly maintained, when the point comes to girls the girls boys ratio is 1:5 and they are well secured inside the campus as well as outside, no one can just enter the college, thier are cctv cameras everywhere. college festivals are great with famous personalities visiting the campus, dj, parties are regular. having my best tym here every day. i really don't wish to go home during breaks.

The campus infrastructure, labs, hostels, sports facilities, everything is excellent. The only worrysome thing is the competition as the students are pretty smart. The cut-offs for entering are way too high but it's all worth the effort. The coding culture is awesome. The review is for all three campuses combined and not just Pilani campus. The food in Goa campus is amazing.
