The preference is always given to BITS Goa as it belongs to the most reputed family of BITS institute. One of my friends has studied there and he loves the campus from all aspects.

The major reasons as to why BITS Goa is to be preferred are:


  • CSE has more job opportunities in the market as compared to other branches of engineering. 
  • If you even go for a core organization in the chemical field; the highest package is not more than 6 LPA. 
  • In the case of CSE, if you are into coding a good package can be cracked.
  • The highest package is close to 1.40 crore in BITS Goa. The average also stands at a decent place. 
  • The prominent recruiters are - ADM Argo, Adobe, Bajaj Auto, Capgemini, CGI, Cisco, DE Shaw, EXL Services, Razor Pay, Reliance Jio, Freshworks and Goldman Sachs.


  • The computer science faculty cannot be compared with chemical engineering. 
  • CS faculty is amazing having well-equipped knowledge in the field to deal with real competition. They all are efficient in imparting real practical skill set to their students in a proper manner.


  • Goa is a place people look out for holidays, and having a college in Goa makes it even more fascinating and attractive. 
  • Certain limitations are also imposed on students. You cannot leave the campus before 5 PM and you should return back by 11 PM. 

BITS Goa makes it a better option on all fronts whether its faculty, campus, or scope. Having this outlook will help you get to a good institute. The stream can be a point of interest but other factors also matter.
