Placements: The IILC has been set up to organize industrial visit, lectures by corporate professionals, summer training, project work, campus interviews and placements. A comprehensive tie up with the corporate world provides the institution the opportunity to organize regular visits to business houses and companies so that the students not only gain experience of what they have learnt but also to acquaint themselves with the functional and environmental culture of different organizations.
The faculty representatives from all the departments constitute the cell and acts as a liaison between the department and the placement office. FTPC formulates needbased programs, which give additional inputs to the students needed for effective interaction with the corporate world and are made functional at the departmental level with the help of student Traning and Placement cell (STPC)
Campus: The Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University (IT-BHU) is an engineering institute under the aegis of Banaras Hindu University (BHU), situated in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India. IT-BHU has 13 departments and 3 inter-disciplinary schools, providing technical education with an emphasis on its industrial applications. Established in 1919, it is one of the oldest engineering institutes in India.It has regularly ranked among the best engineering colleges in India.
IT-BHU has a residential and co-educational campus within the larger BHU campus which is spread over nearly 1,300 acres (5.3 km2) at the southern end of Varanasi on the banks of the Ganges river. The institute in its present form came into existence after the integration of Banaras Engineering College (BENCO), College of Mining & Metallurgy (MINMET) and College of Technology (TECHNO) in 1971. It is slated for conversion into an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) under the amendment of the Institutes of Technology Act 2010 which has already been passed by the Lok Sabha.
Central library: The double storey library is situated in the separate block under the computer center, and has an ample space of 5300 sq. feet. The library is fully automated with Libsys and houses about 29000 volume of books – all the books are bar-coded. The library subscribes to about 134 National/International journals in print form, 30 in the electronic form and a number of magazines and newspapers. A rich collection of CDs and DVDs are also available. The library also has a digital library section with internet connectivity of 10 mbps. This essentially is a place where we can electronically access thousands of books as a member of DELNET, and thus be able to view all those books which are not available in the paper form. This electronic library has been conceived as a resource sharing concept for private libraries, due to the escalating cost of books and the huge amount of research worldwide.
The library has an air conditioned reading section, which enables the members to study and browse books in a relaxed atmosphere.
The book bank facility has been made for students, since students do not purchase books due to their prohibitive cost. Under this scheme, the institute takes a one time charge, and gives students all the text books required for the semester’s study on a returnable basis. Since the student needs approx 56 textbooks throughout the four years of study, the book bank ensures that the student gets these books compulsorily.
Hostel: The boys hostel has been conceived as a necessary extension to the coursework. It has been found that besides the advantage of group working, sports, and extracurricular activities, hostelers tend to perform better in academics since they do not have to waste time traveling to the institute. In fact, if the time saved for traveling is utilized for studies, it allows a student approx 100 hours of additional study. Further, hostelers benefit from access to faculty who are living on campus, plus the chance to attend value added courses. It is highly recommended that all the students should live on campus.
With this in mind, the 150 room boys hostel has been made with large 170 sq. feet rooms with ample moving space. Each room is a double seater so that students learn community living. To ensure uninterrupted studies, the hostel has a dedicated power backup in the form of a 125 kva generator. The mess is run under the control of the warden, with the help of the students. The hostel has an indoor games and common room.
The girls hostel is located in campus. The two storeyed builing can accommodate 100 girls and there is a live in lady faculty and warden on the ground floor.
