Electrical Engineering is Concerned with design, research, development, planning,
manufacturing and management of various electrical instruments and devices that shapes the modern
economics and contributes to the quality of life. Electrical engineering also involves the exciting
field of electronics and information technology. Wireless communication and the Internet are just a
few areas electrical engineering has helped flourish, by developing better phones, more
powerful computers, and high-speed modems. Electrical Engineers design, develop and supervise the
manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of electrical systems for Generation,
Distribution, Unitization and Control of electric power or electrical systems that are used for
computers, Communications and other Industrial applications.

Syllabus of Bachelor in Electrical Engineering (BEL)

Duration of the Course:

The Total duration of the course is 4 Years. Each year consists of two parts I and II, each part having
duration of 90 Working days (15 Weeks).
Total Numbers of Subjects is 53.


The Students’ achievement in each subject is evaluated by internal assessment and final
Internal Assessment
20% of the total marks is allocated for internal assessment for theory part of all subjects. Internal
assessment mark should include class performance, timely submissions and correctness of
assignments, class tests, quizzes, etc.
Evaluation of practical part of most of the subjects is done through continuous assessment. It
includes lab performance, report submission, presentation, viva etc. However, for few courses final
examinations are also conducted.
70% attendance is mandatory to qualify for the final examination.
Pass marks:
Any students must obtain 40% in both internal assessment and final examination of each subjects to
pass in the subjects.


The overall achievement of each student is measured by a final aggregate percentage which is
obtained by providing a weight to percentages scored by the students un each part as prescribed
First Year (Both I and II Parts): 20%
Second Year (Both I and II Parts): 20%
Third Year (Both I and II Parts): 30%
Fourth Year (Both I and II Parts): 30%
Depending upon the final weighted aggregate percentage scored by a student, a division is awarded
as follows:
80% and above: Distinction
65% or above and below 80%: First
50% or above and below 65%: Second
40% or above and below 50%: Pass

Objectives of BE in Electrical Engineering

The objectives of BE in Electrical Engineering are as follows:
 To make students successful in understanding, formulating, analysing and solving wide range
of electrical related problems.
 To make students successful in designing varieties of products, systems or experiments
related to electrical field.
 To make students capable of pursuing successful careers or further study and assume
leadership and entrepreneurial positions in the long run.
 To make students capable of functioning and communicating both individually or/and as a
team and understand the importance of ethics and professional accountability.
Admission Requirements in BE in Electrical Engineering Eligibility Criteria:
 Furthermore, student holding I. Sc. (Physical Group), I. Sc. (Biological Group) with extra
Math, Diploma in Engineering, 10+2 in Science (Physical group) and 10+2 in Science
(Biological group) with extra Math and scoring at least 50% in the respective examinations
are eligible to apply for the entrance tests.
 Should compulsorily fulfil the entire application form requirement for entrance exam.
 This above requirement is for the Nepali students. There are other provisions for foreigners.
Engineering is a dynamic field with lots of specializations. Engineering holds a bright and exciting
future in Nepal as well as abroad. One can make his/her career in governmental projects, private or
public sector industries, construction companies and many other fields.
In surface, it may seem that there is a lack of opportunities here in Nepal. But due to the increasing
growth in development projects and industrialization, Nepal offers a brought career prospects for
There are many colleges in Nepal with affiliation to Tribhuvan University (TU), Kathmandu
University (KU), Pokhara University (PoU), Purbanchal University (PU), CTEVT (for diploma
courses). Almost all the Engineering colleges of Nepal are concentrated in Kathmandu. Other than
the valley, few engineering colleges of Nepal are located in other cities. Pokhara, Butwal, Dharan,
Biratnagar, Nepalgunj are the few cities outside the valley which has Engineering colleges.
Currently, Engineering is only taught in English in all the Engineering colleges of Nepal. There is no
provision to study Engineering in Nepali Language and it does not seem that this will happen soon in
the near future as well. So, students wishing to study Engineering in Nepal must be prepared for this
and have a good understanding of the English language.
