The Indian School of Mines (ISM) is a deemed university under the Government of India. ISM is located in Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Established by the British India Government on the lines of the Royal School of Mines, London in 1926 as an institution to impart mining education, it has now grown into a multi-departmental technical university. IAdmission for its undergraduate degrees is based on the performance in the JEE advanced exam.The Government of Jharkhand passed a resolution in September 2011, recommending to the Govt of India to convert ISM to IIT. The Planning Commission, on a reference to it from the Union Cabinet on this issue, favoured this conversion during the 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017). ISM Dhanbad with the approval of its Finance Committee, Executive Board and General Council has forwarded the proposal for its conversion into an IIT.In a written reply to the Rajya Sabha on December 14, 2012, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor said, "The Planning Commission has recommended that ISM Dhanbad may be converted into an IIT while ensuring that its core competency in mining and geology would be central to the institution and would not be diluted." The approval on 'Conversion of ISM Dhanbad into an IIT' is an agenda item for the meeting of the council of the IITs to be held on January 7, 2013. It may be noted that for this, a Bill will have to be introduced in Parliament by the Union HRD Minister.

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.
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.
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 sciences. Mining 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!
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.
