College Infrastructure
The college has great infrastructure. From fully equipped laboratories, libraries to gym, badminton court, tennis court, 2 playgrounds for cricket and football. Great cafeteria and other food outlets like RD and many more. The whole campus is wifi-friendly. There are 11 hostels which accommodates UG and PG students.
Academics
I am pursuing B-Tech in Civil Engineering. The quality of teaching is good. Many workshops, fests, hackathons, etc are always in the row, to let the students understand the current advancements of technology and improve themselves.
Placements
The placements in our college are quite good, specially in recent years. Normally, average salary offered is 10-14 LPA; with the highest being 48 LPA. Placement percentage is 65-78% in recent years. With coming years, its only going to improve.
Campus Life
The campus is lush with greenery, beautiful buildings, parks and much more. Apart from the academic activities, the students engage into various co-curricular activities like public speaking, singing, sports, debates, poems, arts, etc with many cultural club and technical clubs to boost not just the academic life but also the social life.
Anything Else
It's absolutely worth it!!

College Infrastructure
Yes, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad have all the necessary infrastructure like smart classroom with proper seating arrangements whiteboard blackboard and smartboard. The best part about IIT (ISM) Dhanbad is its library...one can spend his/her whole day there. In campus you can find amul and Nescafe canteen... In campus there is gym,sports and wifi facility. It's a beautiful campus with Greenery all around.If I talk about improvement scope. There is not sufficient or required equipments for research student.
Academics
I have done my M.tech in Environmental science and engineering from IIT(ISM) Dhanbad. Faculties of my department are very knowledgeable and deliver there knowledge to the student very well. They are highly qualified. After studying from this department I was sure that I can stand by myself in the outside world and can give my input in my field.
Placements
I can say only for my self and for my department. So if I'll talk about Environment department.. then yes... No of Placement from Environment department is high. PSU's like coal india and SAIL also comes for placements. The minimum package any company can offer is 6lakh. Below this is not acceptable in ISM.
Value-for-money
Yes
Campus Life
Campus Life is the best part of any college life. Every year cultural fest tech fest rock fest Basant and many more events were organised. College is located in the middle of the city. Students teachers every one was very supportive. Its a honour to be part of such reputated college.

College Infrastructure
IIT ISM Dhanbad is a fully equipped campus that has all its necessities inside the campus. It has GYM, a Swimming pool, an indoor court for badminton, an outdoor court for basketball and tennis, two large playgrounds for cricket and football, It has a cafeteria and many other food outlets so that students can get whatever they want to eat inside only.
Academics
I was pursuing the Bachelor of Technology in Electrical engineering theirs. Quality of teaching was at par with most of the top IIT colleges. Yes, the study curriculum was updated as per the requirement of society and as per new developments.
Placements
There were quite a few opportunities for students in terms of placement, most of the companies were looking for CS students but open for all so, if someone was interested in CS without being in CS can peruse the job if he has the knowledge of the same.
Value-for-money
When I enrolled it cost me Rs. 150000 per year or around Rs. 75000 per semester but that was further increased for new enrollment to Rs.250000 per annum or Rs 125000 per semester. Yes, the quality of teaching was far better than the fee.
Campus Life
IIT ISM Was a closed campus college that has everything inside the same college. the best feature was the availability of all types of food and the worst was whenever I have to go outside I have to walk about 2 Km to go outside campus.
Anything Else
Overall it has a wonderful campus and great teaching facilities, I had experienced many different things such as different fests, competitions, and much more, it provided me with opportunity to where I am now

The college has all the basic amenities and good infrastructure for future engineers. The classrooms are very engaging and interactive. The entire campus is wifi friendly and classes are also equipped with smart boards. Living spaces are clean and green and the food is hygienic.
Academics
I’m studying electrical engineering at the college. My interest in the field made me chose this stream. The curriculum is very well updated especially in the online teaching being done nowadays. I feel we really will be ready for the future jobs.
Placements
The placements of IIT Dhanbad are pretty good. We have all the good companies coming in for the placements. Almost 60% of students from last year’s batch were placed in companies offering an average package of ₹18L

College Infrastructure
Everything is good, but sometimes lab instruments won't work , but it's fine they will change it by next week. Yes, mostly every part is well maintained , if there is something faulty if we inform it to the incharge then they will fix it
Academics
I love learning, and quality of teaching is good. Here self learning is more important unless you have an interest on a subject you can't get that. Because to build your career , you are the foundation no one will help you
Placements
Quality of placements are good. Around 20-40% are placed every year and the remaining of them some choose higher studies, some choose to do a startup and some choose to give UPSC and some choose for going through GATE
Value-for-money
It's 1lakh for every semester(5 course,2-3 labs). Yes, it's worth . Because not only they teach the subject but also how to analyse it, which also helps in reality. And this approach will encourage us to learn more in that subject
Campus Life
Our academics and extra curricular activities are equally balanced , so every student can choose their own interest ,there will be no force. It's jharkhand ,it's safe and by the way ours is closed campus. Yes , it can handle emergencies

College Infrastructure
Yes, the college has all the necessary infrastructure for research and stuff. Classrooms are well equipped. Sports facilities are excellent but a lot of indoor sports stadiums are yet to develop. They are extremely well used. Regular sports activities in the morning and evening makes sports a thriving field here. Hostels are quite well maintained. The Central Library is one of the largest libraries in Asia providing reference to a great variety of books. Wifi is free in hostels and library.
Academics
Minerals and Metallurgical Engineering. Quality of teaching is good and research is encouraged. Yes, recently the curriculum was revised to help students reach a more diversified field of study and research.
Placements
Placements have been good overall. Highest package was around 45 lakes. The Placement cell does a good job providing the best possible experience to the students and companies for internships and jobs. Being a third year student presently I can provide only this much information.
Value-for-money
Course costs 2,40,000 per year for a 4 year Btech Course. Yes, the money is somewhat worth . A student's career depends on the combined factors of his/her own efforts and the college. So, I feel that it is not a very black and white answer whether money is worth it or not. It is a combined process. Definitely provided a student is willing to prosper and work, everything that the college demands and provides is worth.
Campus Life
Campus life is excellent. Recent developments like parks and more food courts are adding to it. IIT(ISM) Dhanbad has an immensely good culture of sports to dramatics to debates to dance to music and whatever co-curriclur activities one can think of. One can find students greatly engaged in these activities during the evening time after the regular classes. The campus is safe and well guarded. The fests provided a ecstatic experience.

College Infrastructure
Firstly , I will start from my classroom . It consists of 115 students which is a huge number . There is no air conditioner in the classroom which leads to suffocation ,because of which listening classes for 4 hours in the afternoon is difficult some times . The equipment in the lab is good , they are available for every group . Sometimes they show wrong results which is common with every electronic gadget. So, no worries about it. Sports center , library , hostels, food etc are excellent.
Academics
I preferred electronics course which later turned to be a bad decision . The teaching staff and other aspects are good but lack of interest in that course made me lazy to understand those concepts . If you are interested in research side there is no better college than ours . Talking about job-ready there is no guarantee . Generally,in schools or colleges everything is being taught to you . But , here most of the learning part depends on the individual interestof student which makes u job ready.
Placements
It's very good for some branches but for branches like electronics , mechanical it's very hard to be placed in core . Last year the highest salary was 43 lakhs and it's from electronics branch .but the average package from electronics branch is 75 percent . Students taking up computer science need not to worry about your placement, it's 100 percent for u guys , but if you work hard you can be placed with a decent package.
Value-for-money
As my father is a farmer and my family income is less than 1 lakh I need not to pay any money except hostel fees and mess fee which costs around 50k to 55k per annum , same in the case of SC/ST students . For OC/OBC the fees per annum if your annual income is above 5 Lakhs is around 2 to 3 lakh per annum. If the annual income of a oc/obc student is in between 1 to 5 lakh per annum there is a two third reduction in fees. It's worth the money we pay .
Campus Life
It's outstanding 🤩. Upto class 12 I was a day scholar . It's clear that I should definitely stay in a hostel as dhanbad was 1400 Kms away from my city. I heard that there is a drug culture in the campus . Me and my parents were little bit worried but later when I went to college I came to know that it's a rumour and I was able to adjust to the campus life within a week . Friends here are awe.sports , health centre everything is fine . Location is not that safe but campus environment is awesome.
Anything Else
Overall , it's a decent campus . I would not say its excellent but better than many other iits after top 10 . One can guarantee that when you are leaving this, you will be a complete student with lot of maturity and clarity of thoughts ..so no need to think much before taking admission here.

College Infrastructure
College infrastructure is appreciable. As rest of IIT's, infrastructure of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad is pretty good. Many buildings such as library, gym, etc. are there in college. Hostels, Student Activity centre and other buildings also adds to the beauty of the campus
Academics
Academics of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad is very good, focusing on ultimate skill building of student. Educators of institute are innovative and they use to teach in a interactive way.............................
Placements
Placements are good but not good as compared to other IIT's inspite of high NIRF ranking. Main companies of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad are Amazon, Microsoft, PayTm, ONGC, etc....................................
Value-for-money
Fees of this college is acceptable. However if any student is from poor background, certain scholarship programmes are there in college which are easy to avail for any student. Student can get scholarship on the basis of their background in which they belong, their academics and their extra-curricular activities.
Campus Life
College Life of IIT ISM Dhanbad is awesome. Student coming to campus enters a new phase of his life. Different cultural, sports and tech clubs are here which leads to take students' hidden talent out and students something which they could not get without this environment.
Anything Else
Stay cool have fun.

It's not as good as "IITB" but good enough. Mess food sucks tho :). All necessities like health centre, playgrounds, library, canteens, hostels are within campus only. Everything other than boys hostels is well maintained ;).
Academics
I won't comment on the quality of teaching as I usually don't attend classes, but if u see it as academics pov, the course structure is very well built, includes almost all fundamentals and advanced courses related to the discipline.
Placements
Well, placements are never absolute, but I'd say they well in core branches. Branches like petroleum, civil, environmental faces a lot of difficulties tho. Other than that, placements are nothing to worry about. I'm not saying everyone gets placed... but it's not difficult... not even half the effort you make for entrance exams.

Infrastructure is nice and campus is also very beautiful. Hostel room are bit compact and mess food is same as in every other hostel. library is one of the best feature of our campus, it's India's biggest tech Library with all the necessary facilities.
Academics
Quality of teaching is nice and course curriculum is also regularly updated to adapt the newest industry standards. Specially petroleum department is very focused on teaching any new technology required in the industry
Placements
There are a lot of companies open for campus placements and the number of companies are increasing every year. Still getting placement in core branches is relatively tougher than in finance or programming field
Value-for-money
College fee per year is around 3lac and I think it's little too much even for all the infrastructure and academics.

Placements
Placements at earth science branch is excellent, This year CSE and ECE students also got excellent placement,i don't know about the percentage of student placed this year , till april 2020 highest package was 43 lakh , CSE,I think in ISM all the mining branch student got placement

Right now i am in first year. The branch wise classes run from second year. The quality of teaching is good. Yes the curriculum is updated . In first year only a few things taught will be useful in my further study .

Our course cost around 2 lac per year . Yes the money's worth can be seen at some fields. Like in sports and cultural activities . The cultural and sporta fests conducted reflects the money's worth for sure.

Library and lab facilities are excellent. Classroom facilities is not that good means some class rooms are not well vantilaed. Cleaniness and hygiene is up to the mark. The internet facility is pretty good.
Academics
In my veiw our acedmics is very well structured means the whole course is very well divided so that students feel less burdend. In term of teaching some professor's are very helpful and give attention to the whole class but some professor's only pay attention on completing the course and not on weather student understand or not their teaching. And what we are studying is appropriate in term of job prospective.
Placements
In term of placement our have a great growth every year. Highest salary offered in 2019 placement session is 43 LPA and it goes to the computer science branch. Average salary offered is 14 LPA and minimum salary offered is around 9 LPA. And In my view all the college faculty is very supportive in placement process. Being a first year student, all the seniors are also supportive .
Value-for-money
The fee structure is well planned and in accordance with every type of student's. For general student's institute fee is Rs 122300 and hostel fee is Rs 19170. Full fee waiver for sc,st,ph student. Full remission of tution fee for general and obc student's whose family income is less than 1LPA and 2/3 wavier for student's uaving family income between 1-5 LPA.
Campus Life
Campus is well maintained and its location is perfect so that student's do not need to spend to much time in going anywhere. Railway station is very close to campus. Campus includes all the basic need shops.
Anything Else
Overall my college is a perfect college and it helps a student to grow in all aspects of life .

College Infrastructure
ISM's infrastructure is very good. All the departments have their own buildings and laboratories. In sports, there are two grounds one each for football and cricket and are equipped with lights. There is a Olympic size pool, indoor badminton courts, squash, TT table as well as two gyms in SAC(sports activity centre). The new library is one of the largest in the country. The college also has a health centre, post office, ATMs etc.
Academics
Faculty is well qualified and have good industrial connections too. The mining engineering department is one of the Asia's best. But only few of them teaches brilliantly. The cirriculum is undergoing amendments with AI and ML being added as the compulsory first year courses. But inspite of all this you need to work on your own with the help of your friends to become job ready and build your personality. The prepondace of extra curricular activities will help you.
Placements
The placements over the past few years are on the surge. In the year of 2019, almost 75 percent of the B.Tech students were placed. The highest CTC was around 40 LPA offered to a CSE student. The average stood CTC stood 15 LPA.The college improves your soft skills through various seminars and classes but how you develop yourselves in these 4 years matters more.
Value-for-money
IIT-ISM is worth every penny as it gives you an unforgettable campus life and a scope to boost your personality. My course costed about 2.5 LPA after the tution fee was hiked to 1lakh per semester. But, if you fulfill some income criteria you get the scholarships easily.
Campus Life
The best thing about ISM is its campus. With his 365 acres of area it lies at the middle of dhanbad. The campus has canteens, subway, amul canteens and hostel canteens too which are open till 3 am. There is a large auditorium and an OAT. Being a football fan and able to play with friends at night under the lights was one of my favourite memories.

Placements are improving year by year. Sunce 2016 placements in the core and non core branches have improved drastically. Best among Mining and Petroleum branches. Will definitely improve in the coming years.

All IITs are having approximately same fee structure. It is aold college but has a new IIT tag. So value for money will improve in the coming years. For engineering fees of the college is quite normal.
Campus Life
Has too many co curricular activities. Various clubs are available with all kind of sports are available in the college. Gymnasium, boxing, swimming pool and all other activities are offered in the college.
Anything Else
According to me, my choice to come to this college is up to my expectation.

College Infrastructure
Classes are good. Old hostels need a little improvement. Campus has a lot of food stalls. Classes have digital boards. Good auditorium as well. Ample space for sports of all kinds and a good student activity center.
Academics
Studying Marketing. The quality of teaching is good. A lot of case based learning takes place. There are guest lectures by visiting faculties as well. No field trips though. And the course syllabus can be updated a little.
Placements
Placements are decent for MBA (this does not include B.Tech and other courses). You might not get very high packages, but it's okay, mostly in the range of 5-6 lpa and only a few will go upto 8 or 9 lpa.
Value-for-money
One of the best thing is this aspect. Compared to other colleges of it's league, this costs the least. Fee for general is 75000 per semester and an additional of 15000 for mess and hostel. It is very less.
Campus Life
Campus Life is good. You have to be inside the college by 10PM though, you can roam around in the campus till midnight. Cafeterias remain open till midnight as well. Students can enroll into different clubs for activities.
Anything Else
My experience was okay.

College Infrastructure
We have all the buildings for our all departments such as cse, mechanical etc. We have sports ground for all the sports such as tennis court football ground etc. For cultural we have separate halls where all the students can accommodate.
Academics
Academics are better but it is difficult for those students who are Hindi medium since all the lectures and tutorials are in English and our faculties deliver lecture in only . But overall they are good and knowledgefull person.
Placements
We have good placement facilities for us since our college stands in India's best institute so all the companies recruitment are possible . We have good internship facilities for 3 year students too .
Value-for-money
This is good in our college since we spent our money but get valuable knowledge by experienced faculty members and our PhD scholars also spent more time in research from them also we get practical experience so over our money spent is valuable.
Campus Life
This is outstanding in our college since collegelife is good with sports ,dance ,drama and we have all the facilities in our college . Star is also arranged by college students on all the college fest so that we can enjoy as well as gain knowledge
Anything Else
I will prefer my college since all IIts and NIT's have awesome campus life and secured future

College Infrastructure
ISM has an antique infrastructure with the older style of offices, and facilities are well equipped by the admin. It has individual buildings for Admin Block, Lecture Hall Complex, SAC & separate hostels for boys and girls. Our college has a good connection of Wifi in the Central Library and it's considered to be 2nd largest library in Asia, but I'm not complacent with this one because of non availability of many books, quality of books
Academics
I'm studying BTech in Electronics and Communication Engineering; I selected this branch because of my interest in microprocessors though that topic didn't start yet. Some of the professors are much knowledgable and published many research papers in various journals.
Placements
When you dive into discussion of placements in ISM, it has grown much in past 3 years, in CSE and ECE it has more than 90%, where my branch till Day 6, 92 out of 104( Batch of 2020 ) placed. I don't remember the package exactly, but it was around 45-50 lakhs CTC by M/s Microsoft. Since I'm now in graduation 2nd year, I would be taking part in placement after two years.
Value-for-money
My course consists of 8 semesters, here tuition fees are 1 lakh per semester excluding mess fees of 15,000
Campus Life
College campus is quite good, with luscious green plants, and is well maintained, but has much lower sized grounds. Now college has lower sized grounds. Now college is organizing competitions like SPIC MACAY, INTER HOUSE to engage students in large numbers . Staff is much supportive to students when you seek help or suggestion from them.

College Infrastructure
The college has really good infrastructure. The campus area is quite large, it is around 400 acres. The laboratories have advanced equipment and the classrooms are well designed. The hostels are also really nice and most hostels serve decent mess food.
Academics
The academics of the college is also really outstanding as is to be expected since it is an institute of national importance. the professors of the college are really knowledgeable and most are doing valuable research work for the nation. The syllabus taught is inline with the industry demands. Overall, you will have a great learning experience here.
Placements
The college provides good placements. The best placements from the college is most definitely bagged by the students of mining branch and cse branch. Almost all the students end up getting placed in really good companies with nice packages. You also get opportunities to do internships in great companies which really helps in getting good jobs. Some of the best recruiters for CSE branch are Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, google, Amdocs and other industry giants.
Value-for-money
The college does provide really great value for money and it has a very good ROI. Though the semester fee might seem a bit high to some students, but there are a lot of scholarship opportunities. But honestly if you compare the quality of education and facilities that this college will provide you the fee seems very nominal and it is almost a guarantee that you will be laced with a really high package.
Campus Life
The campus life is phenomenal, there are a multitude if clubs that you can be a part of, numerous technical, cultural and sports events are organised round the year. I am a sports man and it was really important for me that I am given good exposure and coaching in my field and the college provided me with just that. The staffs, faculties and seniors are all really helpful and always available to provide guidance.
Anything Else
You should really not think much before joining this college as you will be in for a great experience in this college and you will get to experience the much coveted IIT culture here. The college will surely provide you all round development and carve out a great future for you.

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.
Academics
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
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.
Value-for-money
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.
