BITS Pilani is one of the very few institutes in India where ‘Merit’ is the only criterion for admission. The Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani is an all-India Institute for higher education. The primary motive of BITS is to “train young men and women able and eager to create and put into action such as ideas, methods, techniques, and information”.
Over the years, BITS has provided the highest quality technical education to students from all over India admitted on the basis of merit. Its graduates may be found throughout the world in all areas of engineering, science and commerce. BITS symbolizes the maturing of Indian technical ability and “can-do” entrepreneurial spirit, especially as derived from the private sector. BITS is located in the Vidya Vihar campus adjacent to the town of Pilani in Rajasthan.
The placement scenario at all BIT campuses has always been extremely positive. BITS Pilani campuses schedule two placement seasons every year. Our students work in the industry for one of the two semesters in their final year as part of the Practice School programme and are available only part of the time on campus.

Each of BIT programmes is designed to give students a balanced education with theory as well as practical knowledge. In addition, students are encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities as it helps them develop soft skills and develop well-rounded personalities. This differentiates BIT students from others and makes them a valuable part of any company they join.
Prof. Souvik Bhattacharyya, Vice-Chancellor BIT said,”Admissions to BITS Pilani are based solely on merit as determined by nationwide online tests – BITSAT – conducted by BITS Pilani. Our graduates following the rigorous training, both inside the classrooms and laboratories as well as through immersive internships in the corporate world, are well equipped to design, develop and market products and services for the discerning consumers in India or abroad and also take on leadership roles in later years in their careers.”
