The Institute is also blessed by renowned local temples like the Golu Devta Temple, Ghorakhal, and the Kainchi Dham.

The Institute has been conceived due to the progressive vision of Shri G. P. Birla, the famous Industrialist, philanthropist, and a well-known leader of the corporate world in the country and abroad. Shri C. K. Birla is the present Holding Trustee of the Institute. The Institute was started in 1989 with a Master in Computer Application (MCA) with the support of B. I. T. MESRA, Ranchi, and B. M. Birla Science and Technology Center, Jaipur. The Bachelor program in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) and Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) were introduced w.e.f. session 2003-2004 and 2006-2007 respectively. The present intake in MCA, B. Tech. (CSE), and B. Tech. (ECE) is 18, 180, and 30 respectively. The Institute is in the process of starting the BCA program w.e.f. session 2024-25. The Institute is AICTE approved and affiliated with Veer Madho Singh Bhandari Uttarakhand Technical University, Dehradun, and is governed by its own Board of Governors (BoG). The Board consists of renowned academicians including Vice-Chancellors of different Universities and Professors from IITs. The biggest asset of this institute is its highly qualified and well-experienced faculty members.

We pay special emphasis on innovation, research, and entrepreneurship. We offer excellent academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular facilities for the holistic development of our students. For the overall personality development of the student, BIAS provides them the opportunity to join various in-house societies and clubs such as Literary, Fine arts, Cultural, Sports, Eco-club, and Techno-forum. Our students perform exceptionally well in events such as the annual multi-activity competitive event SPECTRUM. The Institute has recently been declared the overall winner of the inter-collegiate program “KAUTHIG-2024” organized by the affiliating university.

The placement record of the Institute is encouraging. Many reputed companies regularly visit the Institute for placement and many students also opt for higher studies in India and abroad. We offer excellent hostel facilities with separate mess for girls and boys, health facility with an in-campus dispensary and ambulance, smart classrooms, well-equipped laboratories, and indoor and outdoor sports facilities to our students. For academic and administrative purposes internet/Wi-Fi connectivity of 300 Mbps leased line is available however, hostels have been facilitated separately with sufficient numbers of Broad-Band Wi-Fi routers.
