Dear Students,
You sure must have made yourself home with this institute and the department by now. It is undoubtedly an interesting time to be in the field of Computer Science & Engineering at ISM Dhanbad, with a lot of positive changes in the landscape of its placements, research scope and having its presence felt at the industrial level. A lot of credit goes to the Computer Science & Engineering Society (CSES) and the ACM Student Chapter of ISM Dhanbad, which together promote the all-round development of students by organizing their respective guest lectures, coding competitions and workshops. The students, through their initiatives such as CodeISM and SpeakUp have also contributed in improving the Coding and speaking skills of the current students. CSES simultaneously is responsible for fostering relationship between the current students, the alumni and the faculty members by organizing various events like Udbhav - the annual day celebration, Confluence - the annual alumni meet, and farewell. The editorial board of CSES brings out the bi-annual departmental magazine BufferedReader which presents CSE at ISM inside out. The department wishes good luck to all the bright minds of the country that have joined the ISM CSE family on this endless journey of progress.
