The college is good but has some limitations as well.

College Infrastructure
The college has quite good infrastructure. Classrooms, library and academic complex are in a very good shape. The hostel rooms are small. There are many dogs inside the campus which affects the hygiene. Mess food is quite good.
I am studying bachelor of technology in chemical engineering because I was interested in the topics. The teaching quality is good. The curriculum used is very well updated including all the latest requirements in firms.
Placements have not been very good. Around 70% students get placed. The highest salary was around 40 lakh ctc given to computer science students. The average salary is around 7 to 8 lakh per annum. The career development centre takes charge of placements.
The course costs around 2.5 lakh per year for general students. For other category students the fees is about one third. Considering the contact hours, hostel, mess, library I think the college is a good value for money.
Campus Life
The college campus is in the heart of the city. It is neither too small nor too big. The library area is the most happening area in the college with many people being there since there are many food outlets there. The campus is very safe and the health centre is opdn 24*7 with ambulance services.

Its a very good college. the infrastructure here are amazing but the faculty and some parts of the administration lags behind but not as far. But the Earth Science branches here are awesome. they get industry exposures right from 2nd year. The alumni network of this college is incredible. the students work hard to achieve their desires and fulfill with ease.

One of the best college to study earth science related branch and are literally booming in the world in mining and mineral streams. Most of the mining sectors in India are equipped by IIT(ISM) students and are leading there. Recently has been awarded a rank under 200 in Asia's college ranking and after getting converted to IIT in 2016 the college has really flourished in terms of placement, industry exposure, internship opportunities etc and the graph is exponentially increasing.

I score 70 marks in jee advance can i get iit ism

suraj kumar 26th Dec, 2019
Dear Aspirant
On the basis of your score there is very minimum chance for getting admission in IIT ISM. But if belongs to any category like SC / ST OBC etc then there may be a chance for getting a seat. So go through college predictors to get current situation based on your mark.
Hope this is helpful.

How many marks are needed in jee advanced to gt into IIT ISM Dhanbad(CSE or ECE)?

sudheer kumar 16th Dec, 2019
Dear student,
If you are seeking for IIT DHANBAD CSE branch you have to be in 1600 to  2200 rank list in jee advance paper and for that your score should be around 190 to 220 and for ECE your score should be 160 to 190 and rank should be under 4000 as these branch is evergreen and in future engineers from these branch are on high demands.
Hope you will made into IIT.

Thank you.

This is partha sarkar.I have complete tech and ph.d from Indian Institute of Technology (Indian school of Mines) Dhanbad .I am interested for the faculty position in Geo Technical engineering .If there is any vacany on this course in any college, kindly infrom me. 8757327793 sarkarpartha72@

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 11th Dec, 2019

Hello Sir,

You have good qualification and  for sure you will a job as per your need. There is high demand of faculties.

This platform is an online career helping platform and not a college.

The main point is not every college has the stream Geotechnical engineering in their UG or PG course. The work on your part is you have to look for colleges which offer this stream in their UG or PG or both.

Then you have to visit their official webpages and look for career page and check if there is any vacancy. If there then apply for it as per the instructions and guide line.

This is the one way and the other way is you have to go to campus and visit the administration section or HR department of that institute.

you can also apply in online platfoms for job and they will message you when then find one suitable for you as per your preferences.

Hope it helps!
