The B. M. Sreenivasaiah College of Engineering (B. M. Sreenivasaiah College of Engineering), is one of the most reputed engineering college in Karnataka, Bangalore, India. The engineering college, started in 1946, was one of the first private sector initiatives in technical education in India. Popularly known as BMS, it is located on the Bull Temple Road, opposite to the famous Bull Temple. Though a private engineering college, it is partially funded by the government of Karnataka. It has the largest student population of engineering colleges in Karnataka, drawing students from other states of India and from abroad. Nearly 30,000 engineers around the world hail B. M. Sreenivasaiah College of Engineering as their Alma mater.

One of the oldest engineering colleges in Karnataka, it recently celebrated its Diamond Jubilee in 2006. It is also known for the annual inter-collegiate cultural fest UTSAV, one of the prominent student-managed fests in the country.



In the history of Karnataka, the name of late Sri Bhusanayana Mukundadas Sreenivasaiah (BMS) occupies a prominent place in the field of philanthropy. The Maharaja of Mysore honored him with the title of Raja Karya Prasaktha in 1946, when he opened the college. He had foreseen the urgent need for high quality technical education in India even before its independence. The ideals for which Sri B.M. Sreenivasaiah stood continue to inspire the inheritors of his legacy.

After the death of Sri Sreenivasaiah, his son Sri B.S. Narayan took over the reigns of the college. Under his guidance the institution grew. He was also instrumental in initiating International Collaborative programmes such as cross-cultural programmes with the Melton Foundation and training foreign students under International Co-operation Division (ICD). Governments of Tanzania, Malawi, Botswana, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Rwanda and others regularly sponsor their students to study at BMS Institutions.

After the death of Sri B.S.Narayan in 1995, the government of Karnataka entrusted the reigns of BMS Educational Trust to a new managing body consisting of a Chairman, Member Secretary and three trustees of repute in the fields of Judiciary( Chairman), Administration (Member Secretary, IAS cadre) and Education (Former Vice Chancellor, Director of Technical Education etc.,).The placement offers received for the 2007 graduates were 1047.

The graduate school offers masters degrees and research degrees in most branches of engineering, computer applications, and business administration.

It is currently headed by Dr.Kayala Mallikharjuna Babu.

The Melton Foundation.jpgThe Melton Foundation

The Melton Foundation was established in 1991 through an endowment by technology entrepreneur, William Melton in collaboration with his wife, Patricia Smith Melton. The Melton Foundation helps address today’s global challenges through sponsorship of an international network of over 400 talented Fellows competitively selected from universities in Chile, China, Germany, India, and the US. Fellows participate in inter-cultural training, leadership development, and global education through symposia, travel, online activities, project grants, and social service.This is a non-profit organisation. Melton fellows also called as ‘Fellows’ enter the program as undergraduate students following a competitive application process at their host universities. Subsequently, they must meet a series of milestones in training and participation levels in order to retain their fellowship, which supports their travel to activities and events as well as their online connectivity and educational and social projects. Since 1991, close to 400 talented individuals have been chosen as Melton Fellows and are in varying stages in this lifelong fellowship. [7]

Following university graduation, Fellows continue to interact among their peers, mentor younger Fellows, and become active in the governance of the network. After graduation, Senior Fellows also take leadership roles in deploying the Melton network for positive social impact. The Melton Foundation sponsors a number of events and activities designed to achieve its goals of fostering cross-cultural understanding and building a global network of individuals from diverse environments, professions, and at varying stages in their lifecycle. These activates make use of both face-to-face events, usually hosted by partner universities, and intensive online interactions through the Melton Portal, its online communication channels, and other supporting Internet technologies. Some of them are Annual Symposiums, Project groups and Work groups, Social service projects.[8]

In recognition, these agencies have been funding special programmers for more than two decades for training international students from various countries. Governments of Malawi, Tanzania, Botswana, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Rwanda and others have been regularly sponsoring their students studying at BMS institutions. An International Hostel with all modern amenities is provided to the students. More than 1000 international students have graduated from portals of BMSCE since the inception of ICD.
