Indian School of Mines - ISM dhanbad - ISM

The Indian School of Mines (ISM) was established by the Government of India in 1926 on the pattern of Royal School of Mines, London to teach Mining Engineering and Applied Geology to provide manpower for the Indian Mineral Industry and the concerned departments of the Government. Subsequently in 1957, Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics disciplines were also added. In due recognition of its vital role in the service of the mineral exploration and mining sectors of the national economy, ISM was granted autonomy by the Government of India in 1967; and has been functioning as a Deemed University under the University Grants Commission Act, 1956. In 1996, it came under financial and administrative control of MHRD, Government of India. It has 218 acres of fully residential campus of its own consisting of graceful blend of old and new style buildings. The serene campus comprises academic buildings, separate hostels for boys and girls, faculty & staff quarters, health centre, workshop, Student Activity Centre (SAC), canteen and other infrastructural facilities for its cosmopolitan community. The Indian National Congress at its XVII Session of December 1901 passed a resolution stating that “in view of the fact that the tendency of recent legislation namely, The Indian Mines Act VII of 1901, is that all Indian mines must be kept under the supervision of mining experts, the Congress is of opinion that a Government College of Mining Engineering be established in some suitable place in India on the models of the Royal School of Mines in England, Mining Colleges of Japan and at other places in the continent”. The McPherson Committee formed by Govt. of India, recommended the establishment of an institution for imparting education in the fields of Mining and Geology, whose report, submitted in 1920, formed the main basis for establishment of the Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad
