The Birla Institute of Technology was established in 1955 at Mesra by industrialist and philanthropist B. M. Birla. The institute was affiliated to Patna University until 1960, and then to the Institute of Science and Management, Ranchi. In 1986 BIT was elevated to the status of deemed university under section 3 of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956.
Space & Rocketry Department at BIT Mesra.

BIT was the first institute in India to establish a department of space engineering and rocketry, in 1964.

BIT introduced the concept of a small industries entrepreneurs park, and is the first institute in India to facilitate for young entrepreneurs the initial project funding, besides providing nursery sheds, central design and workshop facilities.

The Small Industries Research and Development Organization (SIRDO) was setup in 1970 as a launching pad for small manufacturing enterprises managed by graduates of BIT. Companies created from this concept include Meditron and Alcast. This idea was appreciated by Department of Science and Technology, Government of India; and was spread to other institutes such as IITs by the Government with a concept named Science and Technological Entrepreneurs Park (STEP). The first STEP was approved and located in BIT Mesra. The entrepreneurship development cell was founded in 2007 and is run by the students. To add financial strength to this effort, BIT has set up SIDBI Centre for Innovation and Incubation (SCII) by an arrangement with Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) to provide funds for a limited period of time to new entrepreneurs, start up companies, and technology based organizations, to facilitate Research and Development in areas of interest with the faculty of the institute.

BIT established an offshore centre in Bahrain in the year 2000. It has a PARAM 10000 super computer at the core of its IT infrastructure.
