In 2020-21, Indian Institute of Technology-ISM Dhanbad saw its overall placement rate drop by close to 10 percent from the previous year’s level. This could be due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Although an IIT for about half a decade, the institute was established about a century ago as Indian Institute of Mines Dhanbad and is older than all IITs except IIT Roorkee which, too, began as a standalone engineering college. As IIT-ISM Dhanbad, it is among the top 15 engineering colleges in the country, as judged by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF).

Through a Right to Information application, Careers360 accessed the latest data on the placement of BTechs graduating from the institute.
