The Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani is an all India Institution declared as Deemed to be University under Section 3 of the UGC Act. The University consists of 15 academic departments with a focus on education in engineering and sciences. BITS Pilani has campuses in Pilani, Goa (BITS Pilani Goa Campus), Hyderabad (BITS Pilani Hyderabad Campus), Dubai (BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus) and an extension center in Bangalore. Although the campuses are autonomous for most part, the same degrees are awarded at all the campuses by the university. It was the first Indian educational institution to set up a campus outside India.
The institute administers the all-India computerised entrance test, BITSAT , which is the first of its kind in India. BITSAT is now the most competitive of all national engineering entrance exams in the country. Based on number of applications received, 150,000 students appeared in BITSAT-2013 for admission to a total of 2,200 seats at the institute, which means that an average of 68 students competed for a seat.
Acceptance rate in BITS is very low, less than 1.47% making it the most competitive and selective university in India. The admission is on the basis of merit and not through any kind of reservation. Please note that there is no reservation of any kind in BITSAT.
The institute has strong ties with industry, as can be seen by its off-campus Work Integrated Learning Program (WILP) which enrolled 22,000 students from corporate enterprises in 2014. Practical experience in the industry is in the curriculum as a Practice School program, where students work with companies located across India and abroad.
