The institute was founded by Ghanshyam Das Birla in 1929 as an intermediate college. During
World War II, the Government of India established a technical training center at Pilani for the
supply of technicians for defence services and industry. In 1946, it was converted into the Birla
Engineering College with degree programmes in electrical and mechanical engineering.
In 1964, the Birla Colleges of Arts, Commerce, Engineering, Pharmacy and Science were
merged to form the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS). In this period of inception
(especially during 1964–1970), BITS Pilani received support from the Ford Foundation and
benefited from an alliance with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology BITS Pilani started to
expand in India and abroad since 2000. New campuses were established in [[Duhai] (2000), Goa,
India (2004) and Hyderabad, India (2008). The fourth campus was opened in 2008 at
Jawaharnagar (near Hakimpet Air Force station), Hyderabad, India. BITS also runs a virtual
university and an extension center in Bangalore.

subject-content in English, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Logical reasoning, and is
focused on higher secondary curriculum in India and abroad. Prospective students are required to
obtain a minimum aggregate of 80% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (subject to a
minimum of 60% in each of these three subjects) in their higher secondary examinations to be
eligible for admission.
Toppers of higher secondary examinations of each single board are exempted from taking
BITSAT test and are considered for direct admission. This exemption helps ensure that BITS-
Plani retain the significant number (about 20-25) of first rank holders from across the country
who join BITS every year.
Acceptance rate in BITS is very low, (Selectivity < 2.08% in 2007) making it the most
selective and one of the toughest schools in India to get admission into after the IITs. For more
information, see BITS Admission.
