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.

Director’s Message

“BITS Pilani is a renowned institute offering higher education in the fields of science, engineering, pharmacy and management. A deemed university since 1964, BITS Pilani has a history spanning more than a century”

Birla Goa campus – a world of wonders!

BITS Pilani is a transformational, unique educational organization with state-of-art facilities that promote and sustain high quality teaching, learning and research. It is a frontrunner in teaching pedagogy and one of its kind in the education sector; we pioneered the semester system in India, dual degree, modular student choice-based credit system, industry-linked programs like Practice School and Work Integrated Learning Programme, minor courses in emerging areas of engineering and science, offshore campus and many more. What BITS Pilani thinks today, India thinks tomorrow. The Goa campus provides vigor and dynamism, a progressive and modern outlook and another set of wings for BITS Pilani to fly and soar high.

Experiential learning, hands-on-training, innovation and entrepreneurship are ingrained in the DNA of BITS Pilani - this is ur crypto currency and lifeline of our graduates. We created incubators and technology hubs on the campus and a maker bhawan is on the way. No wonder, thus, that we are ranked among the top 300 in QS World University Graduate Employability Rankings 2022. We are the only private institute from India in the top 200 in QS Asia University Ranking!

What is extremely important is that we successfully provide a “thinking cap” for our smart, dynamic, enterprising pool of students. We provide them with tools and methodologies and drive to dream big, to pursue their passion, to solve problems that our community, country and the world at large faces today. We achieve this through our world-class passionate and dedicated teachers, ably enabled by a pool of premiere support staff, who are second to none. Along with teaching, they bring the best of research in terms of publications, citations, patents, sophisticated instrumentations, grants and awards to the eager and knowledge thirsty students. Teaching and research are complemented with technology, workshops, seminars, conferences, colloquiums, symposiums and various other scholastic activities that prepare students for an independent career. In no time, they join the bandwagon of BITSian entrepreneurs, start-ups, co-founders, academicians and a strong alumni network of achievers, who have contributed immensely to the growth and development of India as a nation, in the vision of our founding fathers Shri G.D. Birla and Shri K.K. Birla. For such significant contributions and the ability to stay ahead, BITS Pilani has been recognized as an Institute of Eminence by the Government of India in 2020.

In addition, we provide various facilities, including sports and medical infrastructure, for an eventful and enjoyable student experience on campus, with high living standards. We complement these with co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, fests and community cultural events. The enabling, free and warm ambience on this beautiful campus, combined with inspirational support from teachers and administration breeds competence and creativity, with the repertoire of student clubs and student-led events being a testimony to the same. Our cozy hostel rooms, classrooms or even the open spaces are hotbeds of innovation, creativity and leadership. Students here feel at home away from home and forge lifelong enduring friendships.

Our efforts bear fruits as we see with MARS Rovers, an initiative driven by students, and their creation is winning accolades worldwide. Five of our recent graduates and alumni were featured in the Forbes list of 30 entrepreneurs under 30. Students from this campus regularly win awards in various hackathons, coding competitions, science competitions, conferences and global events. The story does not end with science, technology and engineering, since students excel is various other walks of life including music, sports and literature. Nirmaan, yet another remarkable creation by BITS Pilani students, has set standards of social entrepreneurship in the country and they are touching lives by the thousands. We, at Goa campus, are sensitive to the needs of the state community and our public outreach is ever expanding.

We are committed to wholesome and well-rounded education that empowers students with skills and empathy to adapt to any challenges and excel. We ensure that our students are placed in the best of companies or they pursue higher education in the best of Universities or they create jobs for themselves and others. We provide students with a coin with “Success” imprinted on both sides. BITScoin, as I call it, is a way of life here. We welcome everyone to our world, the BITSverse.

Wish you all the very best!

NIRF - 2023

Building The Foundation Of Change

NIRMAAN - an organisation founded by BITS Pilani students with a passion to fulfil their responsibility towards the less privileged people of society.

Social Responsibility Initiative by BITS Goa

The BITS Goa Innovation, Incubation & Entrepreneurship Society (BGIIES) is a registered Society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, in February 2020, having its office in BITS Pilani, K. K. Birla Goa Campus, Zuarinagar, Goa, India.

The Society was set up with an aim to:

  • To promote, encourage, and sustain activities and programs contributing to innovation, incubation & entrepreneurship education and development.
  • To establish and administer the Business Incubators (BIs) in any location in India in order to promote innovation based startups.

Currently the Society is supporting the BITS BIRAC BioNEST incubator, BITS Pilani, K. K. Birla Goa Campus.

Sustainable Environment

Campus is steadily moving towards sustainability in electricity, water & uses of natural resources. Water conservation and systematic distribution of portable water supply is managed and monitored efficiently. Water used by campus residents is treated scientifically and recycled back to use in the campus, where as the recycled water is being reused in flushing systems & in horticulture work. Our aim is to make it zero discharge campus.

Campus Contribution towards Sustainable Environment

Campus is steadily moving towards sustainability in electricity and water usage. Water conservation and systematic distribution of portable water supply is managed and monitored efficiently. Water used by campus residents is treated scientifically and recycled back to use in the campus. Campus had aimed to reduce its dependence on conventional power. In this regard, power plants enabled by solar power and energy saving fixtures have been introduced and installed in the campus.

Usage of transport in the campus is very limited. 3500+ students residing in the campus are not permitted to use their private transport inside the campus and are encouraged to use public transport for their local movement outside the campus. Students use covered corridors to walk from their hostels to academic blocks within the campus.

Campus maintains lush green gardens with a rich collection of flora and fauna. Every year during the monsoon, tree plantation drives are conducted with the help of the students.

  • Over 60 solar water heaters of 500 litres each are provided at all 20 hostels which accommodate 3500+ students.
  • Around 40 standalone solar powered street lights are installed in the campus, which is estimated to save around 2,600 kW of electricity annually.
  • Around 85% of the street lights (total 275) in the campus are connected to off-grid solar power plants of 19 kW per day. These street lights function on solar power for about six to eight hours every night, which is estimated to save around 41,000 kW of electricity annually. After exhausting the solar power, these street lights function on conventional power.
  • Since 2016, hostels, residential quarters, academic and administrative blocks constructed as part of the infrastructure expansion are provided with LED fixtures to reduce consumption of energy.
  • Similarly, in the earlier infrastructure, existing CFL, tube lights and other electrical fixtures are being replaced with energy saving LED fixtures in a phased manner.
  • In the coming years, it is planned to install 50 to 100 kW on-grid solar power systems thus enhancing the use of renewable energy in the campus.
  • Five groundwater recharge points are created across the campus. In this, the surface runoff water during monsoon is directed to a designated area which then percolates in the ground resulting in groundwater recharge. Many such recharge points are being planned across the campus in the coming years.
  • All overhead tanks and water coolers are fitted with floats, sensors and other mechanisms to shut the water supply and avoid overflow.
  • Overhead tanks which are filled with pressurised supply of water through pumps are fitted with actuator valves for avoiding overflow.
  • Movement of transport is very limited in the campus. 3500+ students residing in the campus are not permitted to use their private transport inside the campus
  • The Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), with the capacity of 600 cumec is working round the clock to treat sewage generated by residents of the campus.
  • In the recently completed hostels and residential quarters, the STP treated water is supplied to flush tanks of EWC through a dedicated supply network.
  • The treated water is also recycled by using it to maintain a lush green garden.
  • The sludge generated at STP is transferred to a drying bed in the vicinity of STP which is used as manure after drying.
  • Domestic waste generated in the campus at residences, hostels, messes, etc. is segregated at source into dry, wet and medical waste.
  • Wet waste is treated in a bio-gas plant and composter machine, with the capacity to treat one ton of waste each on a daily basis.
  • Dry waste is further segregated as per norms and handed over to GSPCB approved vendors for recycling.
  • All garden waste is composted and converted into manure which is used to maintain the garden.
  • Beach cleanup drive
  • Campus cleanup drive - in association with Nirmaan
  • Slithers (annual snake awareness program)
  • Paw Pals - visit to animal shelter
  • Through Nature's lens, Green Quiz and Best out of Waste held during Quark 2019
