Which is better Ramaiah or BMSCE


Engineering school in Bangalore, India

Ramaiah Institute of Technology

Ramaiah Institute of Technology ((RIT), formerly known as MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology ((MSRIT) is an autonomous private engineering school in Bangalore in the Indian state of Karnataka. The college, founded in 1962, is attached to the Visvesvaraya Technological University.[1]


RIT was founded in 1962 by the late MS Ramaiah who was an educator, philanthropist, and infrastructure visionary. RIT is part of the Gokula Education Foundation (GEF), which owns and manages several educational institutions in various fields. The foundation also operates a Multi Specialty Hospital.[2][3] RIT was the first institute established by the Gokula Education Foundation.[4]

RIT is 58 years old and is one of the oldest engineering schools in South India. Only 5 other engineering institutions have achieved this grade in Karnataka-UVCE, BMSCE in Bangalore, BVB College of Engineering and Technology at Hubli Malnad College of Engineering in Hassan, and Siddaganga Institute of Technology in Tumkur. MSRIT is separate from MS Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences, a new private university founded by the same management.

Administration [edit]

MR Seetharam, a son of MS Ramaiah, is currently the director of the college. The autonomy granted to the institute by the government applies only to academic matters. The governing council of the college consists of two headmasters from other colleges, a bureaucrat of the state government of Karnataka, a bureaucrat of the Indian central government and a member of the VTU.[citation needed]

Memberships and admissions [edit]

RIT was originally affiliated with Mysore University, later with Bangalore University (until 2002) and now with Visvesvaraya Technological University in Belgaum. It is an institutional member of ISTE and is recognized by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) which is a must for any technical institute in India.[5] It has been certified to ISO 9001: 2008[6] and has been accredited by the Indian Central Authority for high quality education.[7] The architecture department is approved by the Council of Architecture (Government of India).[8]

Academics [edit]

Since August 2007, the RIT has been academically autonomous for both undergraduate and postgraduate programs.[1] While the VTU is still awarding degrees, the college has the academic freedom to create its own curriculum, curriculum, and student assessment. The RIT offers study and research courses for undergraduate and graduate students, including Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Architecture, Master of Technology, and Master of Business Administration. It offers programs that lead to the award of doctoral degrees in various disciplines. The RIT is also a research center in 12 areas including engineering and management disciplines.[citation needed]

Activities [edit]

  • In 2010 a partnership was established with ISRO to build the StudSat nanosatellite. In 2012, RIT was selected to join the consortium of universities that would support ISRO in the StudSat-2 project.[9][10] The institute is also credited with developing India's first unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with an autopilot system.[11]
  • IEEE: The college has an IEEE student branch.[12][13] The IEEE-MSRIT celebrates its tech festival Aavishkaar every year[14][15][16] Different competitions like Algomach (On Spot Programming), Design and Debugging (Circuit Debugging), Robotics, Cyber ​​Treasure Hunt (CTH), Paper Presentation, Games, Tech Quiz, Product Design, 8086/8051 Programming, Amazing Race, Photoshop Contest are together held with workshops.
  • TEDxMSRIT: This student organization held a national event in March 2012. Speakers such as Atul Chitnis, Devi Prasad Shetty, Soumitra Bhattacharya Praveen Godkhindi and others attended the event.[17]
