ISM DHANBAD

ISM-Dhanbad-Logo
History:

Feeling the need for a government Mining Engineering college, the Indian Government, in 1920, resolved to set up a national institute for mining education in Dhanbad to be funded fully by the Central Government. Thereafter on the 9th of December, 1926, the Indian School of Mines University was formally inducted as the first Mineral Technology Institute in the country. Initially known as the Indian School of Mines & Applied Geology, the institute had courses in Mining Engineering and Applied Geology on offer. Then 1957 saw Petroleum Engineering and Geophysics being added on the courses offered. Under the UGC Act the institute in 1967 was granted “University” status. The year 1975 and 1976, saw Mining Machinery Engineering and Mineral Engineering being added to the courses offered respectively. It also started offering courses in Industrial Engineering & Management in 1977. Electronics Engineering and Computer Science were introduced in the curriculum in 1998, and in 1999 Mechanical Engineering was instigated. The year 2006, saw the ISM offering as many as 14 new courses. The ISM also initiated Graduate engineering and management courses in subjects like Mining, Mineral and Petroleum engineering later on.

Campus:

ISMU or the Indian School of Mines University is located in Dhanbad, 260 Km away from Kolkata on the Howrah-New Delhi Grand Chord Railway route. With a campus spread over an area of 88 hectares (220 acres), the five departments of the institute: Mining Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Applied Geology, Electrical Engineering and Applied Geophysics all are started under the main building of ISMU houses. The heart of the University is its Central Library, a completely automated library with services available seven days a week, offering information to all 15 departments and centres with over 2000 users. The library houses more than 80,000 books, 8000 PhD thesis and about 35,000 bound volumes of journals, 1200 digital books, and about 2000 full text scholarly research journals. There is also one more interesting factor of the library with its entire collection made available online through a web-based Public Access Catalogue. In addition to these, the computer centre supports a campus-wide fibre optic network (ATM backbone switch), with also the International Internet Gateway of 8 Mbit/s, Internet and e-mail services subjected to all.  A new Lecture Hall Complex considered as an architectural spectacle was inaugurated in 2006 in the campus. The campus also houses an open air theatre. There is one more unique feature of the ISM, its geological museum. Then there is the Penmann Auditorium mainly for the official functions and the Golden Jubilee Lecture Theatre (GJLT) for workshops, presentations and seminars.
