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.

It has been fruitful two years in my life.College infrastructure is good and placement this year has been great.Overall it's a great experience and sweet sojourn . Faculty is something in which our college is lacking.Senior - Junior relationship is great,you can ask any help from your seniors and they will be ready to do it.

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.

Hello,

Yes, it's a good option to pursue MBA in this college. The college is approved by All India Council for Technical Education (A.I.C.T.E). It organizes regular guest lecturers from ranking universities apart from regular classes.

The college has a well-furnished infrastructure and separate accommodations for girls and boys with all modern facilities. The college has a placement cell that provides proper guidance to the students that helps them in their placements. It mostly emphasis on developing the student’s technical knowledge and skills to meet the corporate recruitment process.

What are IIT(ISM) Dhanbad hostel like?

Aman Kumar 25th Jul, 2019

Hey!

The hostel alloted to the first year students is the Jasper Hostel(for boys). It is situated opposite to the RD. It is divided into four blocks. Almost all the first year students are alloted rooms in Block A and Block D. It has five floors and is the largest hostel currently in the campus.

From the outside, it is quite big but one can guess that it is not maintained “cosmetically”. Every room gives shelter to two students inside the hostel. The passage between blocks A and B has a nescafe vendor, it has two canteens, a mess on each floor, common rooms on each floor which have TVs and TT tables. There are 2 badminton/volleyball courts in each block which are big enough to play cricket/football/basketball.

On the first day, when you enter the room, you may feel that it is small in size. However, as days pass, the size of the room doesn't matter anymore. You will find more than 10 people in a room having their gala time and nobody cares about the space in the room. Infact, there will be enough space for them to play CS or have food which they might’ve ordered from somewhere.

Each room has a LAN port, a granite slab, two cots and a cupboard. And obviously a door and a window.

Best Wishes!

What is the rank of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad among the rest IITs?

Aman Kumar 24th Jul, 2019

Dear Alia,

Most of the rankings done in India are flawed and paid. They don’t reflect the true picture, which is very unfortunate for new aspirants. Don’t go by the rankings posted everywhere. They will misguide you. Just ask as many passed out engineers as you can. They’ll give you a good idea of engineering scenario in India.

ISM Dhanbad has always been considered among IITs even when it didn’t have the IIT status and was an independent university (ISMU).

Its hard to match the standards of IIT(ISM) Dhanbad when it comes to earth sciencesMining and Petroleum graduates from ISM Dhanbad are considered and treated as ‘elite’ in their respective industries. Their alumni are holding top positions in huge multinationals.

As ISM boasts of a unique and strong senior junior relationship tradition (which you wont find in any other IIT), its much easier for students of ISM Dhanbad to come into contact with their alumni. No doubt their placement records are very good every year.

ISM Dhanbad was granted the status of an IIT in the year 2000 along with Roorkee Engineering College (now IIT Roorkee) but ISM alumni totally rejected the offer while Roorkee accepted it. You can understand by this gesture, what status ISM Dhanbad has been enjoying since its beginning in 1926. But slowly as new trades started being introduced in ISM, a need for IIT status was felt for the upliftment of branches in ISM other than Earth Sciences. Thus, it got an IIT tag recently.

IIT(ISM) Dhanbad is the best engineering college in India in its own sphere. Just like IIT Roorkee is considered best for civil engineering.

As you are concerned about IIT(ISM)Dhanbad. I will say that go for it ‘blindly’ (when you clear IIT-JEE) if you want a career in earth sciences. Its a descent college for other core branches too, as its firstly an IIT, secondly, it has a pretty good infrastructure (much more upgraded recently) and industry contacts. Also, student life is very good.

All the Best!

Is Jadavpur University better than IIT(ISM) Dhanbad?

Aman Kumar 23rd Jul, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

Jadavpur is the best engineering college in top ten list of India but IIT dhanbad also consist in top ranking but as my suggestion IIT dhanbad is the best option instead jadavpur. Another the main thing many cases branch are main priority than colleges,when you will get top branches of jadavpur like CSE, ECE etc and in IIT dhanbad like petroleum, mineral and environmental engineering then you will go jadavpur but in IIT dhanbad you will get like CSE,ECE and top most branchs so this is the best option to select IIT dhanbad and we know that the IIT is the brand.

Hope I have made myself clear.

Best Wishes!
