on excellent infrastructural facilities. The faculty and alumni of IITs continue making huge impact in all sectors of society, both in India and abroad.Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University) ,
Varanasi and Indian School of Mines University (ISM), Dhanbad, are the oldest institutions in India and are known for their immense contributions towards society at large and for science and technology in particular.
THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES BEHIND SUCH INSTITUTIONS ARE TO :
To create an environment that encourages freedom of thought and pursuit of excellence, and inculcates the necessary vision and self-discipline to achieve excellence.
To build a solid foundation of scientific and technical knowledge and to prepare competent and motivated engineers and scientists.
To kindle an entrepreneurial spirit among the students.
To prepare the students to become outstanding professionals and contribute to nation-building.
Each institute has well-equipped modern laboratories, state-of-the-art computer network and well stocked technical library. Teaching methods rely on direct personal contact between the
