The Birla Institute of Technology & Science, BITS Pilani, is an all-India Institute for higher education. The primary aim of BITS is to "train young men and women able and eager to create and put into action such ideas, methods, techniques, and information". The Institute is a dream come true of its founder, the late Mr G.D. Birla, an eminent industrialist, a participant in the Indian freedom struggle, and a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi. 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 to many as BITS, Pilani.

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 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. BITS is located in the Vidya Vihar campus, adjacent to the town of Pilani in Rajasthan.

Training the future of innovation

BITS’ mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. The Institute is committed to generating, disseminating, and preserving knowledge, and to working with others to bring this knowledge to bear on the world's great challenges. BITS is dedicated to providing its students with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community. We seek to develop in each member of the BITS community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind.

BITS Vision for leaders of change

Our commitment to transparency and stress on equal opportunity has been a key contributing factor behind our emergence as an institute of national repute. Our rigorous intake process rewards only merit and ensures that only truly motivated students join us. Our curriculum is continuously being innovated and refreshed to reflect the latest developments in technology and trends within the industry. Pure academics are supplemented by pervasive industry engagement and every student is exposed to practical applications of classroom knowledge under a structured semester-long engagement programme.

The pursuit of excellence requires a transparent and honest approach. At BITS Pilani, we have always believed this to be true and are one of the few top institutes in India to favour a ‘Merit Only’ based admission policy.

To ensure complete transparency in student intake in the undergraduate courses we have instituted BITSAT, a fully online exam. BITSAT tests students on their aptitude for Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. BITSAT also has a section on English and Logical reasoning, thus becoming a complete analysis of a candidate’s intelligence and capability.


BITS has held its own over decades becoming a globally-recognised centre of knowledge, academic and research excellence because of the inherent culture and values that are instilled into each person.

Our Immersive Education coalesces a varied range of real-world and practical aspects that consist of:

  • Practice School
  • Dual-course Learning Program
  • Incubation Technology Driven Research
  • A Thriving Start-up Ecosystem
