BNMIT is one of the phenomenal colleges here in Bangalore as it focuses not only on academics but also the overall upbringing of a student. This college has excelled in teaching the students discipline and also has influenced every student’s behaviour concerning the basic moral principles. The teachers have always supported us to engage ourselves in extracurricular activities and have given us tons of opportunities to showcase our talents as well. As a student of the mechanical department at BNMIT I can say that, the staff is always well planned and organized as well as friendly, which helps us to communicate better with them, regarding our clarifications on the subject.

BNMIT has immense contribution in channelizing my ideas and innovations in the right way. Not just academics, also being a part of BNM Friends of Nature – the Nature Club and Kalabhageerathi – the Cultural club has given me lots of opportunity to grow and learn. I always await the annual trekking and camping organized by BNM Friends of Nature club. These clubs and activities help us focus on our all-round development.
The college supported me and my friend and encouraged us to participate in the American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME) E-Fest Asia Pacific, 2020, an international platform for budding engineers.
Never question elder’s advice as they are always attached with a concern.
Keeping this in mind, the one thing I always feel happy about is my senior’s suggestion in selecting BNMIT as a career foundation, mainly focused on the quality of teaching. After the college began, I was surprised to see the number of extra-curricular activities apart from that of academics. After days, I started getting involved in those activities; Cultural Team – Kalaabhaageerathi; B.N.M Friends of Nature Club. I began to enjoy the college life from the day I was provided the opportunity in participating in the Annual VTU Cultural Festivals and the Nature trips organized by BNM Friends of nature club. I began to see overall development in myself.

BNM Institute of Technology has been a great experience for me so far. The classes are filled with extreme joyfulness, which means each can perform excellently in their respective courses. The professors and staff are friendly and easy to approach whenever help is needed which makes life a lot easier. Since the campus is located at the heart of the city, it’s easy to reach on time and attend classes. Mechanical Engineering is my passion which I wanted to pursue in my life. By joining BNMIT, it’s making it easier to reach my goal. I’d take this opportunity to thank all my professors for being kind and generous to me.

The college has been providing excellent support and facilities in every aspect for my son to excel in the field of Mechanical engineering. Not only limited to academics, the college has also provided various other opportunities in Cultural events and nature expeditions. I am very grateful to all the staff who are supporting him. Recalling the quote, my son, being “kartaa”, the other three aspects that is “Kaarayitaa”, “Prerakaha” and “Anumodakaha”, he is getting from BNMIT.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering has instilled the confidence in students to explore new ideas. The college and the department encouraged my son, to participate in Asia-Pacific level technical competition hosted by American Society for Mechanical Engineers by providing all the required support.
The college has been dynamic in adapting Best New Methods for Innovative Teaching – B.N.M.I.T during the COVID 19 pandemic.
BNMIT has been accredited with ‘A’ Grade by NAAC. All UG branches – CSE, ECE, EEE, ISE & Mech.E accredited by NBA for academic years 2018-19 to 2020-21 & valid upto 30.06.2021
