Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University and Purbanchal University offer Bachelor of Civil Engineering in Nepal. There are more than 30 colleges including private and public colleges in Nepal. 

To study BE in Civil Engineering, students need to pass +2 with science (physics , chemistry and maths) or any other requirements set by the university such as entrance examination. The bachelor of civil engineering from Nepal is accredited throughout the world. Because of this, you can also apply abroad for further study or work after completing a bachelor of civil engineering in Nepal. 

Eligibility Criteria to study Bachelor of Civil Engineering in Nepal

The admission requirement to study BEng in CiVIL Engineering is different for the universities offering the program. 

Overall, these are the entry requirements that you need to meet.

  1. Students need to pass Intermediate Level/ +2 in Science with mathematics as a subject with a minimum of 45%. 
  2. Specific for TU institutes- Students need to appear on the IOE Entrance examination and secure a minimum of 40% (which is a passing score). Students need to bring a minimum of 40% to study any engineering at TU run engineering institutes. To study civil engineering at KU, you need to appear and pass on the entrance test conducted by KU.

For Purbanchal University or Pokhara University affiliated colleges as well, students need to meet certain requirements. 

IOE Entrance Examination

The famous IOE entrance examination is taken by more than 10,000 students every year. The exam comprehends 5 sections- Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, English and Engineering Aptitude. 

The test used to be paper-based initially but now it is computer-based. The entrance examination is quite strenuous and students need to prepare both physically and mentally for the exam.

Different institutes like PEA and SEA offer Engineering preparation courses. These courses are 3 months to 1 year long.  These courses cost from NPR 12,000 to NPR 25,000 depending upon the length of the engineering preparation course and institute you choose.
