Innovate Achieve Lead

Applying Knowledge for Competitive Advantage

‘BITS Education system’ is unique in that the research is in-grained in the entire education process at all the levels. There are several innovative features of the system which tend to involve students directly into ongoing research being pursued by faculty members as well as researchers. The curriculum offers judicious balance between core discipline-oriented courses and multi-disciplinary courses. The class room teaching encourages students to set goals for one’s academic interests, however, the education process necessarily requires individual student to think, explore, and undertake self-study for achieving goals by the end of term. The education system provides ample opportunities for individual to practice different techniques of research.

The students are required to complete certain number of elective courses (discipline oriented as well as open), which introduces them to methods suitable for carrying out independent research. We provide high power computing facilities, advanced research grade hardware-software tools for analysis and simulation,and excellent library facilities for undertaking in-depth study of advanced topics. Students are trained for writing technical reports, proposals, research papers and thesis for publication. These courses are generically called Project Courses, which include Study Projects, Lab Projects and Design Projects.

The faculty members, in search of options for satisfying students’ varied queries and needs, are encouraged to develop research projects, which are likely to be sponsored by external funding agencies, thatinclude national/international agencies and Industries. The education system allows students to work on research problems under the supervision of faculty mentors as part of  projects. Such an approach to research has delivered many advantages to students as well as faculty.

Ongoing research activities in the Department can be classified into following categories:

  •  R&D Project sponsored by external agency
  • Ph.D. research being pursued by faculty and/or research scholars (Full Time / Part Time)
  • Project Courses being pursued by B.E. Students
  • Research Practice Course for M.E. students
  • First Degree /Higher Degree Thesis being pursued by B.E. /M.E students.
  • Practice School-II being pursued by B.E./M.E. students at off-campus locations
  • Dissertation being pursued by students at off-campus location
