BITS Pilani Dubai (formely BITS Pilani, Dubai Campus) does not feature in the two available world rankings (Shanghai Jiao Tong University,China and Times Higher Education Suppliment,UK). The fact is it is not a university and awards degrees from BITS, Pilani; as such it might not even be considered for these rankings. In fact, the only Indian institutes that feature in these rankings are the IITs, IIMs and the IIScs.

But, still BITS, Pilani in Dubai is the most sought after engineering college by Gulf Countries Candidates(GCCs). If, at all it does come at the top in the near future, which is very likely, it'll be ranked in Middle East ( or UAE ) colleges\universities. It'll be ranked among the top few colleges in UAE just like BITS Rajasthan is ranked among the top few in India.

As far as the inter-BITS ranking is concerned, among the three campuses, it would rank second ( The new campus at Academic City provides world-class facilities ) if you compare:

  • the number of students ( 800 seats in Rajasthan and around 1200 seats in Dubai ) and faculty ( Faculty keeps on circulating, but Rajasthan faculty is the best ).
  • number of programs ( same as that of BITS, Pilani-India except that it doesn't provide B.E. Degree in Civil Engineering due to lack of infrastructure. )
  • number of labs ( Hopefully, labs may improve in the new campus of BITS,Pilani-Dubai. )
  • campus size ( Not as big as BITS Rajasthan. )
  • placement ( Both Dubai and Rajasthan campus guarantee 100% placement and good pay perks. )
There has been no publication thus far that has compared the three operational campuses, i.e, Pilani, Goa and Dubai. Goa campus is new, so nothing much can be ascertained though it has an amazing infrastructure for its students.

Yes. Since 2008, all the rankings of BITS Pilani have included the Goa Campus.

BITS Pilani Goa Campus is not a university, but a campus of the main university BITS Pilani. UGC approves BITS Pilani to have it's own campuses with the same course structure, curriculum as the parent campus. The degrees at BITS Pilani Goa are awarded by the university of BITS Pilani. Since BITS Pilani is a deemed university, hence it has the power to design its own degrees and curriculum. The MSc Economics degree at any of it's campuses is an amalgamation of Economics, Engineering and Science. Hence, it is a notch above the traditional Economics degree awarded at other universities. However, it is a 4 year integrated degree, and is considered an "undergraduate" degree and not as a "graduate" degree.

BITS Pilani runs an extension center in Bangalore for "off-campus" students. These students are employees of various companies like Intel, Yahoo, etc and are eligible to be BITS students under the MoUs signed by their respective companies and BITS. There is NO admission procedure for the extension center. BITSAT is the way to get admission to any of the "on-campus" programs at the BITS Pilani, Pilani, Goa and Hyderabad Campuses.
