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.

Electrical Engineering is concerned with the design, research, development, planning,
manufacturing and management of electrical systems and devices which are required to facilitate
the needs of modern, developed societies. Electrical engineers design, develop and supervise the
manufacturing of electrical systems and devices. Particularly, they focus on the generation,
transmission and distribution of electrical power, their control and protection system. Electrical
engineers are also concerned with the utilization of electrical power in various areas
such as industrial application, communication systems, information technology systems and
building electrification, among others.


Most students today see their future in civil engineering and architecture. Some choose such limited
subjects. Students who study these subjects get the opportunity to work in the field of infrastructure
development. After the development of infrastructure, the demand for civil engineers is decreasing.
Electrical engineers also get job opportunities in infrastructure development. The siblings today do
not understand the growing importance of electrical engineering.
Think about the opportunities that can be achieved in 5 years. So, students need to understand what
they will choose for the future, not just the present situation. How many engineers are needed for
the energy year announced by Nepal?
We have to choose the subject by paying attention to that. The present age is of energy, biomedical
equipment, industry, technology. These are the priorities of the world, ignoring everything, there is
a good scope of electrical engineering to work in every field.

The study of Electrical Engineering subject started from IOE is limited. The program has been
extended to Tribhuvan University and private colleges. Where there are only 48 seats. This subject
is also taught in other universities of Nepal with limited seats. There are about 300 seats available
in Nepal for Electrical Engineering subjects. Students should also choose the right college for their
studies. Students need to learn not only theoretical knowledge but also practical knowledge. For
that, only a few colleges are available in Nepal. The most organized and perfect lab after Pulchowk
College, Thapathali engineering college, Kathmandu Engineering College, Advanced College and
National College.
The mission of the department of electrical engineering is to promote technical excellence in
Engineering by offering programs to produce engineers with dynamic, well-rounded personalities,
adaptable to ever-increasing demands of emerging technologies involving analytical and practical
skills. We are commitment to research and development. We provide the knowledge and principles

on which electrical engineering is founded in order to produce engineering graduates who are
technically competent, creative, and articulate.

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.
