PATNA: By creating a number of academic landmarks in a short span of 16 years since its inception, Birla Institute of Technology Patna (BITP) is at the forefront of technical education and training in the state today. It offers academic programmes that are commensurate with the demands of the contemporary industrial and corporate world.
Located between Bihar Veterinary College and Patna airport in west Patna, BITP was established in 2006 at the initiative of the state government. Chief minister Nitish Kumar laid the foundation stone of the institute in December 2005 and it started its academic programme in 2006-07 session. Since then, it has been growing continuously and establishing academic landmarks.
The institute offers both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in different disciplines of engineering, science and management. It imparts four-year B Tech programmes in civil, computer science, electrical and electronics, electronics and communications, mechanical, and production engineering, bachelor courses in architecture, computer applications, business administration and business economics. It also runs M Tech courses in computer science and wireless communication. PhD programmes are also conducted here in all these subjects besides applied physics, applied chemistry and applied mathematics.
Admission to the bachelor courses is made through counselling based on all-India rank in JEE-Main through central seat allocation board. Admission to the PG courses is made on the basis of GATE score and academic performance. There are 60 seats in each branch of engineering at the graduation level and 18 seats in each of the PG courses.
BITP encourages its students to take active part in both curricular and extra-curricular activities with a view to ensuring all-round development of their personalities. Students of the institute have gone to NASA and won Microsoft Imagine Cup. In September, 2017 the state information technology department organised a 24-hour national hackathon on its campus.
BITP director Arbind Kumar said the institute is likely to expand its academic horizon soon by starting a number of new courses and research centres. PG academic programmes would be launched in computer engineering, and electronic and communication engineering. He further pointed out that with a view to developing this institute into a centre of excellence in information technology, a well-equipped data science centre would be set up here soon. At present there are altogether 72 qualified teachers and 88 supporting staff.
The institute provides modern academic and infrastructural facilities to about 1500 students enrolled in different courses and residing in altogether four hostels, including one for girls.
