In pursuance of the action plan to monitor the attainment of Vision and Mission of the Institute, the National Assessment & Accreditation Council proposes that every Institution establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of an institution's system and works towards realizing the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC in BMSIT&M is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the performance of various departments in the Institute. The IQAC will make a significant and meaningful contribution to channelize and systematize the efforts and measures of BMSIT&M towards academic excellence.
