BIT, Mesra is a "Deemed University" under Sec. 3 of the U.G.C. Act 1956. The Board of Governors is responsible for the main functions and overall supervision of activities. BIT Mesra had been conceived with a vision to be recognized as a world-class learning institution for engineering and technology. But it has moved beyond the fulfillment of a scholastic promise to re-defining education in the new age through creation of aptitude and comprehensive intelligence. Targets are achieved everyday, only to make space for newer dreams.
Campus life is undoubtedly the most cherished memory for a student and BIT ensures that discipline is properly coupled with a more than adequate share of fun and excitement. Students share an open and transparent bond with the faculty and other staff members and everybody puts in their very best to make the Institute a great place to live and learn in. Completely residential, the campus is self-contained with excellent hostel facilities and hangout zones. With more than 10,000 registered students spread across the main campus at Mesra, seven other centres within India and three overseas centres, BIT is today a global name. Along with Undergraduate and Postgraduate Programmes, the Institute has more than 150 registered students for Doctoral Programmes at present.
