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 ideas, methods, techniques and information". The Institute is a dream come true of its founder late Mr G.D.Birla - an eminent industrialist, a participant in Indian freedom struggle and a close associate of the Father of Indian Nation late Mr. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi). What started in early 1900s as a small school, blossomed into a set of colleges for higher education, ranging from the Humanities to Engineering until 1964 when all these colleges amalgamated to culminate into a unique Indian University of International standing.

This university was christened as 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 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 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.

K.K. Birla Goa Campus Goa Campus started functioning in August 2004 and was formally inaugurated by Hon'ble Prime Minster of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh on May 5, 2006. The Campus is spread over an area os 180 acres and the location of the campus is unique with respect to the scenic beauty and panoramic view of picturesque surrounding with Zuari river, hillocks, waterways and forest. The Campus is about 25km south of Panjim, 10 km west of Vasco-da-Gama, and 22 km north of Madgaon. It is 5.5 km east of Goa Airport, along National Highway - 17B, bypass road.

Hyderabad Campus BITS, Pilani started its fourth Campus in the City of Hyderabad. The institute has acquired a land of 200 acres in Jawahar Nagar, Shameerpet Mandal from the Government of Andhra Pradesh through HUDA. This Campus is planned with an outlay of about Rs. 270 crores. The foundation stone laying ceremoney of the Hyderabad Campus was performed by Hon'ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradehs, Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy in the presence of Chancellor, Dr. K.K. Birla and other distinguished guests on Saturday the 28th of April, 2007. The new campus has started its academic activity in August, 2008.

Dubai Campus Dubai Campus was established in association with ETA-ASCON group in September 2000 in response to the growing needs for quality engineering education among residents of the Middle East. Currently located in the Knowledge Village, the Institute will move to its newly build campus spread over 14.7 acres in the Academic city of Dubai by September 2007. BITS, Pilani is the first Indian higher education institution to set up its campus abroad.

BITS Pilani campuses schedule two placement seasons every year. Our students work in 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. Details of the profiles of students available for placement in each season can be found two months ahead of placements on each campus website.

Process Driven Placement System - Over time our placement process has been refined to make recruitment as simple as possible for students and companies alike. The life cycle of the placement process is:

• We contact companies about 2 months ahead of the placement schedule.

• Companies provide us with the necessary data through a Job announcement form.

• We scrutinise the requirements and then send a formal invitation to the companies.

• We fix a mutually convenient date and time for the presentation & selection process.

• We announce the visit along with the details provided by the company in the announcement form to the students.

• We ask eligible students who are interested in the job to apply for the job a week before the visit.

• We provide essential details of applicants to the company.

• The company re-confirms travel plan a week before the allocated visit date.

• We book accommodation for company (on payment basis) at the Guesthouse within the campus.

• We book a presentation hall and a student volunteer is allocated to take care of the logistics on campus.

• We announce the list of selected candidates once the company finalises it.

• Students sign offer letter and a copy is forwarded to the company.

Some of the salient points of the placement process are:

• No registration charges

• Rooms with LCD projectors and computers are provided for conducting pre-placement talks

• Rooms for aptitude tests, group discussions and interviews are also made available

• A team of dedicated placement committee volunteers work to ensure simpler logistics and all other related issues regarding campus placements.
