15 reasons why you get the best education at BITS Pilani....

"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life --anoynomous"

**BITS Pilani is the only university in India based on the system of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) which stands among the IITs and is even better than most of them in overall aspects which include infrastructure both physical and academic, Faculty research , consultancy,Curriculum ,delivery system, Placments, Industry interface,cost of education, happiness index,Projects, Patents and many other.Check out on the links given below and find out yourself.
Besides that, BITS has got accredited by the National Assessment & Accreditation Council (NAAC) with grade 'A'. According to the Asiaweek magazine's rankings of Science & Technology schools in the Asia-Pacific region BITS Pilani, was in the top 20 in Asia and Top 5, in the year 2000 in terms of Student Selectivity .
Many reputed sources, including the UNESCO Science Report 2005 (ISBN 92-3-103967-9) make use of Asiaweek magazine's latest rankings of science and technology schools in the Asia-Pacific region.As an icing on the cake, BITS Pilani was also the only Indian university to be ranked in the Top 20 Wired organisations of Asia by Business Today (January 18, 2004 issue).
You hear more about the IITs because over the years there have been 7 IITs (This is before the flood of 8 new IITs ) and just one BITS Pilani. So even you would agree that it is unfair to compare the strength of one campus with that of 7 campuses.It's tougher to get into BITS than into IITs.68 students compete for each seat at BITS whereas just 54 compete for IITs.

** BITS Pilani gives admission only on merit basis.The instance of KK Birla refusing admission for candidate referred by the all powerful Indira Gandhi and other ministers has been quoted time and again. Even when the nation was boiling with the implementation of reservation policy on caste lines by Arjun Singh, BITS had taken a bold stand and opposed it stating that merit can not be compromised under any circumstances.So if you want to study amongst the cream of the country, here is the reason for you.....and me to support my point of it being the best college.
**BITS Pilani has got collaboration with many foreign universities which means after studying say a year or two if you wish to study in those universities then you can do the same under the students exchange program.The Institute with the help of Ford Foundation grant during 1964 to 1970 had the advantage of having collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA.
BITS presently is an Institutional member of International as well as National Associations & Bodies like Association of Commonwealth of Universities, London, World Association for Cooperative Education, Boston, USA, International Association of Universities, Paris, International Council for Open and Distance Education, Oslo.The Institute has collaborative arrangements with University of Oklahoma, Tulane University, Purdue University, George Washington University, University of Maryland,University of Southern California,Kansas State University,Arizona State University,University of Windsor to name a few.

** BITS Pilani is a brand name so if you want a tag with yourself after you pass out then this is what you need. If you wish to go abroad to pursue higher studies, then only BITS Pilani and IITs from India are considered at par with each other and hence under same category.

**BITS Pilani offers Direct Admission to Board Toppers of all state and central boards into the program of their choice at any of the Indian campuses. For boards with more than one zones/ regions [like CBSE, Maharashtra Board] the admit is offered to the topper from each zone/region. Again if you are at the top among lakhs then you deserve a seat here.

** It has Very strong alumni with most of them at leading positions in almost every field of life and believe me almost every field of life you can imagine.You don't believe me.....it doesn't matter, let the statistics speak.


** BITS Pilani is known for its academic flexibilites. You can pursue engineering with science. You can complete your engineering in 3.5 years if you have the calibre. You can study both computer scienece and Electrical if you have the potential in you. These are just few, there are innumerable combinations which you can choose from. More than 150 elective courses are offered each semester which you can choose from to study.Electrical and Electronics Engineering branch at BITS Pilani is supposed to be the best in Asia. The state of the art "O-Lab" or Oyster Laboratory which is supposedly worth 200 crore INR and is sponsored by Sun Microsystems enables students to do real time chip designing. The laboratory is present only at selected 3 colleges in India, namely IIT-Kanpur, BITS-Pilani and IISc Banglore.

**In case if cost of education is something which bothers you, then you needn't worry as BITS gives merit cum need scholarship to students whose family income is below certain limit and almost 25% students avail this from every batch. Moreover top 10 students from every batch get full fee waiver irrespective of family income.The atmosphere in the campus is the best you can get anywhwere. The so called dreaded "ragging" was never a part of BITS Pilani. You dont call a senior a boss or madam. You just call him or her by the name. Respect for senior doesn't come here by command but it comes on its own by the senior junior relationship tradition of past 50 years.

**BITS Pilani admissions are very unconventional given that you attempt the test on a computer, get your score online, enter your preference order online etc. Unlike scurrying to the godforsaken NIT Hamirpur for AIEEE counseling or to IIT Guwahati for IIT-JEE counseling, my whole application process and counseling for BITS Pilani was done from the comfort of my home.No wonder BITSAT is gaining popularity and other exams like CAT have replicated the online version....AIEEE exam conducted by CBSE has also implemented this partially from year 2011 onwards....

** Placements at BITS are among the topmost in India. Some of the highest paying jobs have been offered in this campus. If you have read the news , you would know it yourself and in case you haven,t then go and see it yourself.

**No crap rule about 75% attendence like in most of the IITs and NITs failing which you are barred from giving the end sems.Here you may not attend a single class if you wish but again there are tests almost every alternate day. It is the sincerity of students here which keeps them working hard and not the rules and regulations. BITS Pilani believes in giving freedom to students...right from the day a student enters the campus all decisions are taken by him or her. Students get to make their own timetable, they get to choose the teachers they want to study under , the time when they wish to study, the courses they wish to choose.

**You get personal chamber consultation hour when you can go and get your doubts cleared from the professors and faculty members personally. Where else in India do you get such privilege in colleges. Sizeable chunk of students go abroad for MS/MBA on Scholarship every year and yeah there are many who get into IIMs each year.
**It is also known to be one of the first Indian engineering colleges to require compulsory internship through its "Practice School" program wherein more than 400 companies/firms have collaboration with it, both in India and abroad. Students get to have hands on experience in industry for around 8 months of the 4 years they spend in the college.
There are two internships one after 2nd year and the other in 4th year for 2 and 6 months respectively. The best part being that the institute facilitates all this, unlike IITs where you need to contact the companies yourself and after umpteen attempts and one liner replies in mails saying "Thank you for your interest but....". you find just one company offering you the internship. Moreover many companies at BITS offer PPO after the internship, thus leaving the student with better options for job.The gap between bookish knowledge and industry work culture is minimised here.

**BITS Pilani comes at the top spot when it comes to extra curricular activities. OASIS(cultural), APOGEE(technical), BOSM(sports), INTERFACE(management), CONQUEST(b plan) are few of the Pilani campus festivals with budget over 11 million INR. OASIS is supposed to be the second best cultural festival in India after Mood-I of IIT-B........you ask any Delhi University Student and they will tell you why it is........WAVES (cultural), SPREE(sports), ,QUARK(technical) of GOA campus and PEARL(cultural), ATOMS(technical) and ARENA(sports) of Hyderabad Campus are top notch in their categories.
To add to the laurels, (APOGEE) the BITS Pilani technical festival is ISO 2009 certified which in layman language simply means it is up to the International standards. The thing to be noted here would be that all the festivals are mananged and handled by students....there is no interference from any of the professors from the institute side and hence proving that BITS Pilani not just produces engineers but good managers too.check out the sites yourself....
**Those of you who want to be entrepreneurs, have a whole lot to discover here.BITS, Pilani in association with the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India has established a Technology Business Incubator (TBI) in the area of Embedded Systems and VLSI Design. BITS has set up a Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) to give a specific boost and emphasis to entrepreneurship development. TBI jointly with CEL shall promote entrepreneurial leadership across all disciplines, facilitate entrepreneurial activity amongst students, and invite entrepreneurs to use TBI services so as to develop end products for commercialization.

No wonder the happiness quotient of BITS Pilani is the highest in India and the fact that there has been no suicide case in past 50 years is a testimony to this and on the contrary Many sharp brains at IITs ended up finishing their brilliant careers just because they couldn't handle the academic system. These are just to list a few........In nutshell you live your life's probably the best four years here..... :-) You are most welcome to comment and ask questions....Would be pleased to answer your queries if any.
For queries related to admissions you can go directly go to
and if these reasons make u feel like cracking bitsat and securing seat in this institute then go to the following hub :

"15 Reasons Why You get the best Education at BITS Pilani".

The hub is more of an advertisement yet has a food for thought in the quotation given at the top:

"An educational system isn't worth a great deal if it teaches young people how to make a living but doesn't teach them how to make a life --anoynomous.

The basic facts are that death and life both are Creations of the Creator God Almighty. Both are to test hoaw a human being performs his role on this earth and proves his excellence.

Education includes both knowledge and its application.

Knowledge is unveiling of the truth. The truth is the same every where. Application is by way of doing what has been learnt, the skill is gained by practice and experience.

Many things that were told but not believed have come to light and people are convinced of their truth. Science and technology has brought the knowledge close to every person and the world has become a global village.

When individuals unite and organize a society comes into exisitence and when they work in a cooperative and consultative manner they advance forward. Knowledge is a continuous process and is to be gained from wherever it is possible within the capacity of a person. Thus it is a light and helps in all sorts of progress.

Main thing is dignity of mankind which must be maintained by every human being. To do that eachone is to regard for the human rights and practically show that no such right is injured in any manner. The role is not unbridled it has its limitations and those are that the knowledge gained should be used and not misused nor abused, nor non-used where ther is actual need of its use.

Education is being spread by noble persons and this deed is full of reward in both the worlds.

May God Bless all who follow the Guidance.

Sizeable chunk of students go abroad for MS/MBA on Scholarship every year and yeah there are many who get into IIMs each year.

So basically you're saying BITS is good because it helps people get into other schools. Kinda sad, considering BITS offers both MS and MBA's.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 6 years ago from India Author

@Anurag: I guess there is some differnce between good better and the best.Although London School of Economics offers courses in Geography, Law , Media etc.( In case if you don't know which I am pretty much sure about then you can visit their website)........but it is not known in the world for them and certainly it is not the best institute for such courses.

LSE is the best at economics and realted courses and the world knows it.

Same way are good at Management and better at Higher degree courses(MS/ME)but we don't claim to be the best and therein lies the difference....

Mohseen 6 years ago

Sorry yaar, I am too biased...so very biased that probably I have not been able to appreciate the better things of BITS. I am sure if you hear the tales of Ragging that used to go on here, you will change your perspective. I do agree it was still less compared to the IIT's but I guess there is no comparison between such crimes where the child loses his innocence and his dignity.

It is good to see that ragging has almost stopped after the Supreme Court order.

I really love the freedom given here and I believe that I am a better person thanks to BITS which would not have been possible in other stressful atmospheres.

You should have added a point about the Biology Labs. They are simply awesome.

It is good for a hub! But in my opinion why do people cry for freedom?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 6 years ago from India Author

@v.sridhar: Man is a social animal. It has been his animal instinct to be free, to do whatever he needs to or feels like to. Students in India are often under parental guidance and vigilance till 12th standard. So they have a lot of expectations when they come to college. They want to experience the freedom which till now they had only heard of and never experienced practically. This is why the crave for it so much. Freedom does not consist in the dream of independence from natural laws, but in the knowledge of these laws, and in the possibility this gives of systematically making them work towards definite ends.This well guided freedom leads them towards the path of development and progress.

Aditya Parihar 5 years ago

Dear Rahat,first of all I wish to congratulate you for this excellent article!My son has qualified Bitsat with a score of 320. Hopefully,he'll get a fairly good branch in BITS.But I'm afraid that the fees of BITS is pretty high and not affordable. So I wish to ask whether BITS offers scholarships like the IITs and NITs?

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@Aditya Parihar Sir: First of all heartiest congratulations.The fact that your son scored 320 ensures that he will get a good branch.

Moreover, I agree to the fact that fees at BITS is more than IITs and NITs.

But for your pleasant surprise BITS offers scholarships more than what IITs and NITs offer.

A cgpa of more than 7 makes you eligible for 50% scholarship a cgpa of more than 6 makes you eligible for 25% scholarship. Almost 27% students in each batch get these scholarships.

Moreover there are many scholarships by Alumni for students who are not financially sound.

Apart from that there is Students Aid Fund for students who are financially very weak even after such scholarships.

Plus there are various scholarships by state govts. in BITS like Pratibha scholarship for students of Andhra Pradesh etc.

Above all there is 100% scholarship for top 10 students from each batch irrespective of family income.

And lastly there are banks which offer loans without any collateral to students who get admission in BITS.

I am sure sir that now you would agree that opportunities are plenty all it needs is dedication from the student.

you would also agree with me for that fact that college life gives direction to your life and these are the most important years which make or break your career.

I got a score of 333. Can i get EEE or electronics and instrumentation at pilani.

And are there any possibilities of branch changes after 1st year?

Also, people around me are saying that mechanical at pilani and infact, mechanical as a branch is not that good. Please give me your opinion on this.

Thank You

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 5 years ago from India Author

@somay: You have chances to get instrumentation at pilani....yeah there are possibilites to get a branch transfer...

No I would not agree with the fact that Mechanical is not a good branch...during the recession Mechites had the best placment at BITS.

Moreover it being a core discipline.....so you would know the importance. Moreover making grades is relatively easier in mechanical.

@Rahul and @Raj : Merchant navy pays good money. But would you want to live that kind of life? Would you be happy staying away from your home, family, kids for months together?

If yes, then Merchant navy is a good option too.

@Raj; If you have to join BITS then unfortunately you have to start from first year onwards only. But it is worth giving away one year if you get to study at BITS Pilani. Take my words.

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

@Suvendu: It's difficult to analyse this in isolation. If you can tell what other options you have, then I may help in evaluating rationally. Otherwise comp. science as a branch in M.E. would certainly guarantee you the best placement among all the M.E. branches.

@Sarvesh: For the other two campuses I can say Hyd campus is establishing itself just like the New IITs. and system in Goa has set itself and has matured.

RAHAR profile image

RAHAR 3 years ago from India Author

CS cutoff would be very close. Either you would miss the mark by a number or two or would be in the safe zone with the same margin. You can just hope for the best.You would certainly get EEE.

I have explicitly mentioned about EEE branch in my writeup, so you can get some idea from there.

BITS Pilani CS vs. IIIT Hyd : I should say, you are comparing a brand name with a degree. You may learn more academically being at IIIT but when it comes to living life at the campus, there is no way you can compare both of them.

If you want to look beyond the books in the next 4 years, then it's BITS .

Hello Rahar,

I got combined score of 150 in Test 1 and Test 2 of BITS-HD 2013.

What are my chances of getting into BITS Pilani M.E. Computer Science.

And I got 65 score in Test 3 of Software Systems So what are my chances there?

And some say that 140 was the cutoff last year for M.E. Computer Science so is it the passing criteria for all students or is it the score of the last seat filled?

Please reply. Please sir.

Abhinav 3 years ago

i got 319 in bitsat this year. i am interested in mechanical but have a slight chance for it at pilani. but i can get CS at goa. So should i opt for CS or Mech. at goa?

nd also i have heard that there is going to be joint placement across the 3 campuses in some time, is it true? coz if its so then all the courses will become somewhat equivalent in the 3 campuses.

Apart from that one point I would like to regarding all the fest: they are not funded by the institution or the government but by sponsors which are very hard to get in a place like Pilani.. Also can challenge any day to match our preparations to that of any of the IITs- not that they do a bad job, their funds and sponsors make it relatively easy..

As far as placements at BITS Pilani for higher degree are considered, the actual placements are a mere 50%, with several streams having zero % placements as well. For B.Tech it may be 80-85% placements though. good placements exist in Pilani Campus, and hardly any multinational / consultancy companies visit Goa/ Hyderabad. Dubai campus has no quality placements at all.
