Institute / University – Indian Institute of Technology, Dhanbad
The Indian School of Mines was formally opened on 9th December 1926, by Lord Irwin, the then Viceroy of India to address the need for trained manpower related to mining activities in the country with disciplines of Mining and Applied Geology. In 1967 it was granted the status of a deemed to be university under Section 3 of UGC Act, 1956. Since its establishment, IIT(ISM) has undergone considerable expansion of its activities, and presently it can be considered as a total technology education institute.

The departments of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics were established in 1957.
The departments of Mechanical Engineering and Mining Machinery Engineering, Fuel and Mineral Engineering, Management Studies, and Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering were added in 1975-1977. The Centre of Mining Environment, the Computer Centre, the Centre of Longwall Mine Mechanisation, and the departments of Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics, and Applied Mathematics were established between 1975 and 1977. The department of Computer Science and Engineering was added in 1997. The expansion of the institute into a total technology institute was further accelerated with the establishment of the Department of Electrical Engineering in the year 2005, the Department of Environmental Science and Engineering in 2006, and the Department of Chemical Engineering in 2010. What started as an institution to impart mining education has graduated into a full-fledged technical institution of international acclaim offering a host of programmes like B. Tech., M. Tech., M. Sc. Tech., and MBA. In addition the School offers M. Phil. and full as well as part time Ph. D. programmes, while also awarding D.Sc. as the highest degree of academic achievement.
Course – Ph.D. in Engineering/ Science / Management | Humanities
The department offers full-time and part-time Doctoral program in Chemical Engineering. The admission of research scholars into the Ph.D. program is based on the performance in GATE/ISM JRF written test and technical interview conducted every semester.
The objective of doctoral program is to impart quality education and train research scholars in conducting independent research. Each scholar, after joining the department would be associated with a faculty member. The progress of the research work of each scholar is monitored every semester by the departmental research committee.
The primary outcomes expected out of a Ph.D. work would be publications in journals of international repute and award of patents, etc. The scholars are also encouraged to participate in national and international conferences so as to obtain feedback on their work, showcase their research work and develop professional contacts.
