What started in the early 1900s as a small school has blossomed into a set of colleges for higher education, ranging from the humanities to engineering. In 1964, all of these colleges amalgamated to form a unique Indian university of international standing, christened the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, known as BITS, Pilani. The new century saw the institute expand to four more campuses at Dubai (2000), Goa (2004), Hyderabad (2008) and Mumbai (2021). In 2020 BITS Pilani was granted the coveted status of an Institution of Eminence by the Government of India as recognition of its legacy of excellence, entrepreneurship and leadership.
The K K Birla Goa Campus set up on 170 acres in Zuarinagar, has a state-of-the-art infrastructure. Spacious labs, modern classrooms with soundproof acoustics, ergonomic furniture, computer labs with internet facility and library define the infrastructural counters of the institution. With over 450 teaching and non-teaching staff and over 4000 students admitted for graduate, post-graduate and doctoral studies, the Goa campus is a buzzing education hub.
Over the years, BITS has provided the highest quality technical education to students from all over India admitted entirely on the basis of merit. Its graduates can be found worldwide in all areas of engineering, science, and commerce.
BITS symbolises the maturing of Indian technical ability and “can-do” entrepreneurial spirit, especially as derived from the private sector.
BITSians are known for their independent thinking and ability to create value.
Additionally, an increasing number of BITSians are starting and funding their own companies while still pursuing their degrees and qualifications. This shows that at BITS, they not only produce well-educated employees, but also foster a culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.
