Questions and Feedback

Why this website?
I have (and I am sure a few others like me...) surfed the net in the past looking for sites on IT BHU and any other department specific site. I came across a few sites dedicated to IT BHU and also a few site dedicated to other departments of IT BHU! There are loads of websites on IITs and specific departments of IITs.
I was disappointed to see nothing on our department on the internet. When I developed my own site, my class mate Pradeep Sharma mentioned to me the lack of a website for our department and asked me to do something on it - so here we are! our own Department of Mining Engineering, IT BHU website!
Who will update the site?
We all will !
We will have to take initiative to spread the word about the site among our fellow department mates. We need to register our details with the site as often as our contact or company information changes. We need to send our latest stamp size scanned photograph (to the mail ids given below) so that it can be put up on the student page. Any development related to department of Mining Engg., that you get information about or any other things that you want to be incorporated - pictures, new pages etc - feel free to send your feedback to or I'll make sure that the feedback is incorporated on the site as soon as possible.
What are these funny letters appended to the site name?
At the moment, this website is hosted on free webspace and hence the letters appended to the name! Plan is to move the website to a paid web server once we gather enough momentum around the website - another reason for you to actively spread the word across!
