"The term ‘Technology’, being essentially generic throughout the world acquires a new rationale in the context of Birbhum (Suri). In this age of globalization many small ventures have emerged to be big. The small town of Suri is now dazzling in the map of Engineering Institutes of the country. Birbhum Institute of Engineering and Technology, the first EngineeringCollege at degree level in the District of Birbhum has been 16 successful years of journey since we started this Institution.

The District has been contributing in its own subtle way towards the overall growth of the State as eminent personalities from the District, from diverse fields of life, have been catalyzing its development process. Education has always been the prime component of development for the District. Rabindranath Tagore founded “Shantiniketan” here to spread his concept of education through Visva- Bharati University. Likewise, Birbhum Institute of Engineering and Technology has been the pioneer in providing quality technocrats from the District.

The Institute came into existence through earnest dedication of a number of Educationists, Philanthropists and Social Workers from the District. ICARE, Birbhum, the parent society behind the shaping of BIET was formed by eminent personalities like Shri Pranab Mukherjee(at present President of India), Shri Somnath Chatterjee(former Speaker of Parliament), Late Professor Padmashree Ramaranjan Mukherji, former Chancellor and Vice-Chancellors, Shri Braja Mukherjee, former Sabhadhipati, Birbhum Zilla Parishad , Dr. Ramchandra Dome, Hon’ble ex-MP, Lok Sabha and Sk. Islam ex-karmadakshya,Birbhum Zilla Parishad  and also other distinguished personalities from the area.Dr. Ramchandra Dome is the Secretary of the Society. The Society (ICARE) has entrusted the Board of Governors to function as the highest decision making authority of the Institute. At present, the Chairman of BOG is Prof.(Dr.)Debabrata Dasgupta, Former Vice-Chancellor , Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Kalyani, and he is responsible for the administration of Birbhum Institute of Engineering and Technology along with the members of Board of Governors.

The objective of the Institute is to induct scientific insight and technological knowledge in the new generation, and at the same time, to see that young learners follow the rich cultural heritageof the nation.Our Institute believes in the philosophy of benevolent governance. Here the relation between the management & the employees is not based on the conventional concept of the rulers and the ruled. Rather we believe that to build the Institute we have to accept the essence of collective responsibility and the spirit of modern ideas of governance .We have tried to assimilate the basis of Indian concept in this regard which believes in the idea of universal oneness.The Institute started functioning with the prime objective to impart quality technical education, driven by the poor standards of the state in the year 1999, after obtaining approval from All India Council for Technical Education. It is presently affiliated to West Bengal University of Technology. It’salso non-profit making objective has prompted various organizations and the Government of West Bengal to provide grants over the years.

The Institute is being run with active guidance from eminent academician like Professor Amitabha Ghosh, Former Director, IIT Kharagpur, and immediate past Chairman, Board of Governors and Professor Ajay Ray, Director, IIEST, Shibpur as an eminent member of our Board of Governors.

The College has been able to build up a large infrastructure, with the sufficient space for Library and Laboratories, Workshops and other facilities to the students so that their personalities can blossom forth in its rich abandonment.
Situated in a beautiful locale adjoining Tilpara Barrage and spread over a campus area of around 30 acres, with pleasant hostel ambience, the Institute provides an ideal platform for academic excellence. A good environment can also sustain a better soul. The vastness of BIET campus has got a big role in imparting the vastness in the minds of its students. The world is big. In order to be noticed and accepted in the global background the education at BIET envisages placement orientation so that students passed from the Institute get a suitable start for their future. We wish all the best to our students from the best of our effort and care.

The Institute is honored to achieve NBA Accreditation during 2013 in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering. The Institute is also proud recipient of prestigious Project initiated by MHRD-World Bank under “Technical Education Quality Improvement Program – II (TEQIP-II) under Government Aided Category. Presently, BIET is engaged in imparting technical education at Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) Degree level with approved intake as indicated below, in the branches of;

Along with these, availability of high speed Broadband Internet connectivity, Wi-Fi facility and Centralized Computing Facility, with most advanced Software, makes it possible to acquire basic engineering education and fulfill research aspirations of the students. We have a strong Medical Unit and the Institution has also engaged a Registered Medical Practitioner to attend to the medical emergencies of the students. We have also firmly announced “Anti Ragging Declaration” in our BIET campus. Fully developed hostel facilities have been made to accommodate most of the students, while providing protection to freshly admitted students through totally segregated hostel, with an ambience of ‘Zero’ tolerance to ragging.

Our Training & Placement Cell is successfully functioning and quite encouraging. Our students complete successfully their respective projects and training in the prestigious organizations and they are aptly placed in TCS, Tech Mahindra, L & T Limited, Infosys, Sandvik Asia Ltd., Hindustan National glass industries Ltd., Va-Tech Wabag, Sapient Corporation, Kone Elevator India Pvt. Ltd., Usha Martin Infotech Ltd., Super Gas, Allfon Software, Sasken Communication Technologies Ltd., Crescent Technosoft, Assurgent Technology Solutions Pvt. Ltd., MPhasis , Tata Motors, Mecon, Wipro  etc. A bulk of our students have opted for Higher Studies and got selected in Premier Institutions of West Bengal and also abroad. Besides, the term examination of respective semesters , the performances and the results of all the students of this Institution have become highly satisfactory to secure their recognition because it has only been possible for that the performance of the students is assessed  on the basis of class participation , sessionals and mid- term tests.

We incorporate our vision in our culmination, integrity, excellence and magnanimity. Our mission is not just running an Institution and offering placement we strive to be an excellent Institution of higher education

ensuring high quality specialized technical education to students from all sections of the society. Birbhum Institute of Engineering and Technology is having gradual influence on Suri (the District town)and the whole District of Birbhum in socio–economic and cultural ways.
