IIT Dhanbad is a well-respected college and excels in mining and petroleum-related branches. The mainstream branches are also well established. The admission process is through JEE Advanced scores and is conducted by JOSAA. Students are required to fill all the colleges they want to take admission in preference order. Options like Float, Freeze and Slide are to be chosen. There are 7 rounds of the admission process. In every round, a seat is allotted. Students have to choose what they would like to do with the seat. Freeze means they want to take the allotted seat and does not want to participate in consecutive rounds. Float means they took the allotted seat but want to participate further in consecutive rounds and wait for better seats according to the preference order provided by them. Slide means they accepted the seat and would want better seats in the same institute as they are allotted. After this go to the nearest IIT for the admission process.

I chose Mechanical Engineering because I had a genuine interest in it and IIT Dhanbad has a very established mechanical department. The faculty-student ratio is 1:24 approximately. The faculty is very helpful and very learned as well. All of them have done their PhD from IITs. If you want to do research and development in Mechanical engineering then the IIT Dhanbad faculty has lots of resources to help the students. The mechanical department lab has very expensive machines for R&D. Students from Mechanical engineering of IIT Dhanbad have excelled in GATE examinations with acquiring AIR in the top 10. This year too out of the top 10, 3 were from IIT Dhanbad. With over 20 years of teaching experience, the faculty here can make you understand the hardest of topics with the easiest of methods. Term exams are of moderate difficulty but if one has attended all the lectures then one can pass with ease. Studying on the night of the exam for the first time will never help you pass any exam ever.

The placement scenario at our college is also good. There are various companies that visit the campus during the placement season. Various students get internships from their 3rd year. Various programs for startups are also conducted by the clubs. Almost all big companies ( it sector and core sector) visit our campus and the number of companies visiting the campus is also increasing year by year. In my department ONGC , crain is the main recruter .
7th-semester students are eligible for placement and from 5th-semester students are eligible for internship. Big names for campus placement are Amazon, Goldman sac, etc. The highest package for this year(2017-2020 )is 30 lacs for CSE. and for the year (2016-2019) it is 70lacs from Mechanical. 95 % get placed from CSE and ECE and 85% from EE, 70-80 FROM other branches. My plan is to get an IT job.
From the final year, a student becomes eligible for applying for campus placement.In the past years companies like TCS, Deloitte, Schlumberger, Aditya Birla ,TATA STEEL,ZS,Vedanta, Vedantu have visited for campus placements. For my branch, the placement is around 70% and many students opt for higher studies. Many students sit for campus placements and also some have got placements through Off-campus drives.
In our branch, according to the previous year's data, among 100 students almost 95 students of them get placed which is a decent thing. The highest package goes up to 40 lakhs per annum and the average is about 8-10 lakhs per annum.
When we talk about the campus placement at IIT ISM, we certainly get the quality as per the name of the institute. Placements mainly depends on the academic records or CGPA and overall personality and skills you have developed over the years of engineering. MNCs often come here for the recruitments mainly IT companies.
From the 2nd semester, students are eligible for internships. You require to maintain at least 8 GPAs every semester. More than 80% of students get placement in good companies every year. The highest package of 2021 was 90 lakh per annum of a CSE student.
So the placements are one thing you shouldn't care about. Being in IIT people always get placed with high packages in good companies. People here come to develop their personality get in civil services. There is no problem with placements or internships. This year's highest package was offered by Bloomberg to two CSE seniors about 90-80 lakhs. The average package is about 10 lakhs.
I answered this in the previous part only. Exams were quite tricky. After all, it is an IIT. In the first year, all the students are mixed and all of us are taught the same courses. A quiz takes place at an interval of two weeks and there are four quizzes per semester.
