The Bengal Institute of Technology and Management (BITM) is located in Santiniketan – a place which can be rarely associated with an engineering college. Even the surroundings are far from what you might experience at Jadavpur University or BE College (Shivpur). Seven kilometeres from Bolpur situated as if far from the maddening crowd, BITM may look desolate but once you enter you are in a different world altogether. The 60 acre campus is comprised of canteens, laboratories, gardens, huge buildings and playgrounds.
In spite of its limitations BITM (Shantiniketan) has done quite well where as the infrastructure is concerned. The five computer laboratories and digital communication engineering laboratories, besides chemistry, physics and a host of other labs prove this rightly. According to the authority the best part of the institute is its highly qualified faculty. The quality of students has also improved over the last few years. Although initially under the Visva Bharati affiliation(2001) it had a humble beginning with just 250 students, now under the West Bengal University (2003) in last 4 years BITM has admitted around 900 students in 5 engineering streams.
