From the Director's Desk

Since its inception, IIT (ISM) Dhanbad has envisaged a premium technical pedagogy with a distinctive focus on scientific research. I am delighted to be the emissary of such sublime legacy as manifested by the institute’s illustrious 93-year-old run. Formerly distinguished for its excellency in the fields of Mining, Petroleum and Earth Sciences, the institute sprawls across a plethora of diverse departments at the juncture. In pursuance of the institute’s broader objective of ‘internationalization at home’. The International Relations portal of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad is intended to assuage the admission process of our international students as well as to minimize any difficulties they may encounter upon their arrival or during their stay at the institute. In addition, this portal aims at augmenting the institute’s collaboration with other eminent foreign universities, conducive to the institute’s anchorage on the global rostrum. I cordially welcome all the international students to the institute and look forward to our forthcoming reciprocity with the universities.
