Green Campus

About the Campus

Located in Yelahanka, the massive 22 acre campus enables BMSIT&M to impart high quality technical education to its students in a pollution free environment. This is achieved with over 75% of the campus being covered with a lawn, a mini forest, scores of trees, parks, gardens and above all a green canopy of Kadamba, Badhami and Rain trees. Housing several evergreen, semi-evergreen, tropical, deciduous, dry, ornamental, fruit bearing, medicinal, bio-diesel plants, plenty of shrubs, jungle wood trees etc. The BMSIT&M campus is totally eco-friendly. All of this is maintained and managed by more than 23 garden staff who are dedicated to keeping the campus sustainable and playing its part in addressing the issue of global warming.


Large scale afforestation initiative has been taken up in our college campus by considering the benefits of having more trees like retaining surface moisture, reduction in soil erosion, surface runoff, flooding, air pollution and green house affect. Some other incidental benefits include encouraging water infiltration and hence improving ground water level.

Lawn Development and Maintenance

Mexican lawn and Buffalo has been developed and maintained in most of the open areas in the campus as it has tremendous cooling effects, acts as a natural filter, traps and removes dust, absorbs carbon dioxide, reduces soil erosion and absorbs rainfall.

Development of compost

All bio-degradable waste from vegetable/kitchen waste to fallen leaves and flowers is converted into usable manure in compost pits located at different locations on the campus.
