Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

BIT Mesra is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutes in India. It is well known for its engineering degrees but it is quite successful in catering to other disciplines too. The best thing about studying here is that you are exposed to a plethora of things. You start developing interest in plenty of subjects and you also get chance to network.
