About Birla Institute of Technology and Science

# About College
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.
# Our mission
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.
# Our vision
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 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.
# Our policy
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.
# Doctoral Programmes Features
* Types of Input
While the preferred input is a Higher Degree of BITS or its equivalent, our Academic Regulations do permit the admission of students with only a first degree from our institute or its equivalent and also of students between these two extremes. Additionally, professionals of high standing and proven practical competence equivalent to the course-work of a higher degree can also be considered for admission. In such cases competence will be evaluated through considering published papers, technical reports, etc.
Qualifying Examination
Every student admitted to On-Campus Ph.D. must pass the Qualifying Examination. The exam is based on the courses of a higher degree programme, which the candidate has earlier pursued or on named courses from higher degree programmes from our institute. The Qualifying Examination tests the student's knowledge, grasp of fundamentals and ability to apply them in novel situations. The exam is designed to be equivalent to the standard, content and intent of the comprehensive examination of the named courses.
Admission to On-campus Ph.D. programme is provisional in the first instance and is confirmed only after passing the Qualifying Examination within the prescribed time. Candidates who are unable to pass the Qualifying Examination within the prescribed time are automatically discontinued from the programme.
* Seminar
In the majority of cases a Ph.D. student registers every semester in a Seminar course or in the In-dependent Study course.
* Course Work
The detailed list of the various courses that are mandatory or optional for Ph.D. students are described in the Academic Regulations. In the majority of cases, this course work consists of courses which are required to be completed for a higher degree programme at our institute. The Qualifying Examination is also conducted on the basis of these courses. Departure from these normal situations is described in the Academic Regulations.
* Teaching Practice
There are two courses of Teaching Practice mandatory for every Ph.D. student. These courses attempt to train the students in the art, methodology and skill of teaching. Alternatively, Dean R & C may permit a student to register in Practice Lecture * Series courses.
Language Requirement
A foreign language can be prescribed as an eligibility requirement for a Ph.D. only when the supervisor and/or the Dean Research & Consultancy have made recommendations for the same for a particular topic of research. Every recommendation must be ratified and accepted by the Research Board.
A Ph.D. student for whom foreign language is prescribed is expected to demonstrate an ability to translate a piece from current periodicals in one of the modern European languages into English with the help of a dictionary.
In most cases English or an Indian language, as the case may be will suffice as choice of language.
* Fellowships and Scholarships
All students admitted to Ph.D. Programme normally bring one or other fellowship from outside sources such as UGC, CSIR, MNES, Nokia etc. However, we have ample resources intended to take care of needs not covered by these sources.
