Welcome to BIAS

The journey began in 1969 with the establishment of a Centre of the Birla Institute of Scientific Research (BISR) founded by Shri B. M. Birla, a renowned industrialist in the newly developing Bhimtal industrial belt. The aim was to provide basic workshop facilities and testing grounds for entrepreneurs to set up industrial units in the region.

With the backing of educational institutions like Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi and B. M. Birla Science & Technology Centre, Jaipur it was a natural progression that an academic institution was established in the same campus.

The Institute commenced its academic programme in 1990 in computer education leading to MCA degree. It was affiliated to Kumaun University. Expanding the horizons for professional education, the Institute also started a 3-year B.Tech. course in Electronics & Communication Engineering in the session 2000-01. This course has now been converted into a 4-years degree programme (post 10+2) with starting the year 2003-04.
