Proofs of the stated are comprehensively documented.
To improve the level of understanding in students, the following innovative teaching approaches are undertaken by the institution.
Information and Communication Technology or ICTs allow users to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technologies. The Indian Information Technology and industry accounts for a 5.9% of the country's GDP and export earnings as of 2009, while providing employment to a significant number of its tertiary sector workforce. More than 2.3 million people are employed in the sector either directly or indirectly, making it one of the biggest job creators in India and a mainstay of the national economy.
Use of ICT
ICT tools can be used to find, explore, analyze, exchange and present information responsibly and without discrimination. ICT can be employed to give users quick access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures.
ICT in Education
Realizing the importance of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) the Ministry of Human Resource Development as per the Mission Document, ICT is the tool in education available to enhance the current enrolment rate in Higher Education, at present 15 percent to 30 percent by the end of the 11th Plan period.
The Ministry also launched a web portal named “SAKSHAT” a ‘One Stop Education Portal’. The high quality e-content once developed will be uploaded on SAKSHAT in all disciplines and subjects. Several projects are in the completion stage and are expected to change the way teaching and learning is done in India. “SAKSHAT” a ‘One Stop Education Portal’.

• Students clubs has contributed to the development of student’s technical capabilities.
• BIET can play a constructive role in the following activities
• Creating conducive environment for Placements and other Competitive Examinations.
• Conducting and organizing various curricular and co-curricular activities and events
• Seeking students help during the big events like Fresher’s Day, Annual Day Celebrations, Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Technical Quiz, etc.
• Display and explanation of advanced technologies through Multimedia Projectors.
• Course coordinators are identified and allotted for every course to evaluate and improve the quality.
• Department advisory board committee is formed to recommend improvement of COs, POs, PSOs, curricular gaps, additional training programs.
• Department organizes various seminars and workshops by internal faculty and external resource persons for students. This will enable them to acquired knowledge in current technologies and tools.
• Design Thinking to Optimize Student Learning: Students are assigned to design a project and its plan of work so that they can focus on developing creativity and build up confidence through hands-on projects.
• Focused group study: Students are divided into specific groups and are assigned specific topics related to latest trends in technology. These groups study the topics in detail through library books, internet, and library journals. Thereafter, the topics are discussed by individual groups in the class and the teacher further guides them about the specific topic. The participants are actively encouraged to not only express their own opinions, but also respond to other members and questions posed by the leader, focus groups offer a depth and variety to the discussion. Additionally, because focus groups are structured and directed, but also expressive, they can yield a lot of information in a relatively short time.
• Interactive classrooms to facilitate spot learning: Occasionally students are made to sit and allow to interact on mobile devices, tablets and laptops where the lecture classroom turns into an active learning centre with a lively forum for thought-provoking discussion, personalized learning and engaging group activities. With the help of laptop and projector, the contents from the syllabus are explained to the students. The students thereafter are given a battery of questions to be answered on spot which facilitates better learning and understanding of the topic being taught.
• Simulation classes and labs: Topics are explained to students in class rooms with e-content in the form of animation and working pictures from YouTube to make them understand more clearly about the concepts and mechanisms and their application in real life. With experiential education being the keystone of simulation, the course is a mix of theory, practice and Feedback so that students develop a strong and comprehensive understanding of how to most effectively use simulation within their education programs.
• ICT usage: ICT is a potentially powerful tool for offering educational opportunities. It is difficult and maybe even impossible to imagine future learning environments that are not supported, in one way or another, by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Students are provided with knowledge and proficiency in the usage of simulation. These softwares are available online and students use it for various analysis purpose. Special training is offered to the students in the lab on regular basis.
