Engineering Faculties in Nepal

Here is the short introduction of different engineering faculties available under Tribhuvan University, Institute of Engineering (IOE) with their career prospects.

Industrial Engineering

Industrial Engineering is a branch of engineering which deals with the optimization of complex processes or systems. It is concerned with the development, improvement, and implementation of integrated systems of people, money, knowledge, information, equipment, energy, materials, analysis and synthesis, as well as the mathematical, physical and social sciences together with the principles and methods of engineering design to specify, predict and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems or processes.

Career Prospects: This is the combination of Mechanical and Electrical engineering as well as management. They can work in manufacturing industries, food processing industries, Department of Industry, etc.

  • Industrial Engineers work to make things better, be they processes, products or systems.
  • Typical focus areas include:

–Project Management –Manufacturing, Production and Distribution –Supply Chain Management –Productivity, Methods and Process Engineering –Quality Measurement and Improvement –Program Management –Ergonomics/Human Factors –Technology Development and Transfer –Strategic Planning –Management of Change – Financial Engineering

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the survey, design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.

Career Prospects: Civil Engineers are required at Dept. of road, Dept. of Irrigation, Ministry of Local Development, Nepal Electricity Authority, Dept. of Building, Different Engineering Colleges, Private Construction Companies, Engineering Consultancies etc.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study and application of electricity, electronics, and electromagnetism. Electrical Engineering mainly deals with the electrical equipments used like transformers, generators, pumps, electrical vehicles, etc.

Career Prospects: Electrical Engineers are mainly required at Nepal Electricity Authority, Hydropower Companies, Lighting system in large complexes and apartments, Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC), Different Engineering Colleges etc.

Electronics and Communication Engineering

Electronics and Communication Engineering is an Engineering discipline which non-linear and active electrical components (such as electron tubes and semiconductor devices, especially transistors, diodes and integrated circuits) to design electronic circuits, devices and systems.

Career Prospects: Telecommunication Sector, Manufacturing sector, Hydro Powers, Government Sectors, Networking, AEPC, Chip design Industries, Robotics, teaching in engineering colleges etc.

Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical and/or electronics engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software.

Career Prospects: Software Development Industry, Telecommunication Companies, Governmental Sector (big demand as e-Government is in pipeline), Banking sector, MIS of diverse variety of organizations, self-employment (easy and cheap establishment of business in the field of software development), High potential of abroad job opportunities.

Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is the discipline that applies the principles of engineering, physics, and material sciences for the design, analysis, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the design, production and operation of machinery. It is one of the oldest and broadest of the engineering disciplines.

Career Prospects: This engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis and electricity. Mechanical Engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer aided design and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, weapons and others.

Architectural Engineering

Architectural Engineering, also known as building engineering, is the application of engineering principles and technology to building design and construction. They often work with other engineers and with architects, who focus on function layout or aesthetics of building projects. Architectural Engineering often encompasses elements of other engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, fire protection, and others. The architectural engineers are responsible for the different systems within a building, structure, or complex. Architectural engineers focus several areas including: the structural integrity of buildings, the design and analysis of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, efficiency and design of plumbing, fire protection and electrical systems, acoustic and lighting planning and energy conservation issues.

Career Prospectus: Department of building, Department of Urban Planning, Engineering Consulting Firms, Construction Companies, teaching in Engineering Colleges, etc.

Geomatics Engineering

Geomatics Engineering apply engineering principles to spatial information and implement relational data structures involving measurement sciences, thus using Geomatics and acting as spatial information engineers. Geomatics Engineers manage local, regional, national and global spatial data infrastructures.

Geomatics Engineering also involves aspects of Computer Engineering and Civil Engineering. Therefore, the Geomatics engineer can be involved in an extremely wide variety of information gathering activities and applications. Geomatics Engineers design, develop, and operate systems for collecting and analyzing spatial information about the land, the oceans, natural resources and manmade features.

Career Prospects: Geomatics is new term incorporating cutting edge technology in image processing, digital photogrammetry, remote sensing, satellite based global positioning, geographic information systems, drone based mapping, laser scanning, surveying and digital mapping. In addition, geomatics engineering can involve work in land development, construction surveying, forensic surveying, hydrographic surveying and spatial data analysis. These are a wide variety of jobs available to a Geomatics engineer in design, development and operation of systems for mapping information about the land, the oceans, our natural resources and manmade features.

Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering is the engineering discipline that applies engineering science and technology to agricultural production and processing. Agricultural engineering combines the disciplines of mechanical, civil, electrical and chemical engineering principles with knowledge of agricultural principles.

Career Prospects: Agricultural Engineers may perform tasks such as planning, supervising and managing the building of dairy effluent schemes, irrigation, drainage, flood and water control systems, performing environmental impact assessments, agricultural product processing and interpret research results and implement relevant practices. A large percentage of agricultural engineers work in academia or for government agencies. Some are consultants, employed by private engineering firms, while others work in industry, for manufacturers of agricultural machinery, equipment, processing technology, and structures for housing livestock and storing crops. Agricultural engineers work in production, sales, management, research and development, or applied science.
