"ISMU DHANBAD"- Know it better!!!


CHECK OUT THE LATEST PICS OF ISM DHANBAD: http://picasaweb.google.com/cmanjunath316/ISMDHANBAD


1."Indian School of Mines"-isn't it a weird name for a tech. institute ??

Yes. It does seem very weird to hear. But the name has descended over a long time.The college dates back to a time which can be called history, 1926. ISM was established as a daughter branch of Royal School of Mines, London. In spite of nine different B Tech
Branches and many M Tech & M.Sc Courses(integrated as well), the traditional name is still maintained due to its rich heritage.More than the Indian perspective , ISM is bigger in the world perspective of being the best school in Asia and the second in the world for the courses offered in earth sciences.No doubt ISM wants to retain its name.


2.How is Dhanbad as a place ??

Dhanbad as a place is very safe , with an excellent climate. raining all round the summers and mild winters.And i suppose a jee qualified student must not make any fuss about the place.The people out here are really nice and ISMites are treated with utmost respect in the city.Moreover one need not go out of the college campus which is lush green and equipped with all the necessities of a student.there are patrol jeeps in the campus ready to help the students all round the night.The hostels are really good with power back up with a nescafe outlet at every hostel.i can compare the hostel to bits pilani{i've been there a couple of times} and our hostel is much much better than theirs in every respect{not trying to instill any controversy}.There are all kinds of standard refreshment outlets in the city be it a cafe coffee day or the others.As a student i would rather say -guys i suppose that you are out there to study and not to party or enjoy your night life.The city is not an issue at all with the access of two rajdhanis, and most of the Calcutta trains passing via dhanbad.


3.Does the college deserve to be compared to IIT??

Why not? ISM is one of the pioneer institutes to have existed in India ,and dominated the World for its quality and talent.,when nothing called IIT ever existed.This is a fact which is known only to ISMites and which didn't go beyond the college administration and the HRD ministry-ISM was offered the status of an IIT in the year 2000 along with Roorkee University.However roorkee became IIT Roorkee , but ISM rejected the proposal.Gesturing the rich heritage and its wide name in the world for producing the best engineers
in earth sciences, it is still ISM for you with a U, ISM University.ISM no doubt is the leader in Earth sciences, and from a decade it is now a full fledged technological institute. Tech. branches like Mech. engg, Comp. Sc Engg, Electronics Engg ,Electrical engg. , environmental engg. along with the premier Petroleum engg ,Mining engg , Mining machinery engg and mineral engg .

PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS LIKE BITS,PILANI DO IMMENSE PUBLICITY BY MEDIA ABOUT THE COLLEGE, IITS GET IT BY DEFAULT......BUT ISM DOESN'T GET INTO THESE PUBLICITY STUFF.......IT USED TO NEVER PARTICIPATE IN POLLS CONDUCTED
BY MAGAZINES UNTIL LAST YEAR WHEN IT PARTICIPATED IN OUTLOOK RANKINGS.........12TH LAST YEAR AND 9TH THIS YEAR AHEAD OF IIT GUWAHATI...NO DOUBT ONE OF THE BEST ENGG. COLLEGES OF THE COUNTRY.....AND THE BEST IN EARTH-SCIENCES IN THE WORLD...........AND HENCE DESERVES TO BE AMONGST THE IITs.

ISM which used to be considered a mining institute ,is now a tech. institute ,and as more and more companies getting to know that ,no one will wait to pick up the top 4% of the brainy engineers the country is producing.

(..This question as well as the following answer..)

Q.Isn't it akward "Doing C.S.E,Electronics,Electrical" from a mining college?

=>

No,Not at all.The Indian School Of Mines is not isolated in its capability of issuing degrees to non "earth science" disciplines inspite of the conspicuous presence of the term "MINES" . A stunning similarity is exhibited by The "École des Mines,Paris" or "The School Of MInes,Paris" which delves into Engineering and Humanities in addition to The Earth Sciences.For those of you unaware of the credentials of this institute.The École is one of France's most elite schools boasting of some spectacular alumni in the form of High level diplomats,politicians and Nobel Laureates in the spheres of Economics and Physics.It is quite evident that if the International Community has no problem whatsoever in associating itself with such an institute then there is absolutely no scope of your degree being a centre of ridicule.It's also worthwhile noting that The École was set up primarily to serve the Mining industry and It branched into a multi disciplinary institute very later in its history.Such a move was made keeping in mind the technological progress and transformations that have taken place in mordern day society a vision which was shared by I.S.M.U during its own transformation.


So,for all those fellows out there who are being guided by various baseless,illogical and naive arguments--Get up.Get a life.You and especially your friendly neighbourhood counsellor have much to learn before they can even call themselves capable of being able to comment about an institute such as I.S.M
