Master of Science in Nepal is a graduate course offered by 4 different universities — Tribhuvan University (TU), Kathmandu University (KU), Pokhara University (PoU) and Purbanchal University (PU).

Master of Science (MSc) in Nepal generally covers disciplines like sciences, engineering, Mathematics, Technology, Medicine and more. 

The general study duration of an M.Sc. degree varies according to the discipline you choose. Usually, it takes 1-2 years to complete a Master of Science in Nepal. However, it can take longer for some courses like M.Sc. in Medicine(up to 6 years), M.sc. In Engineering (up to 5 years ) and M.Sc. in Computer Science takes up to 4 years. 

To receive a Master of Science degree, students must complete a scientific thesis at the end of their academic studies. 

Applicants must appear and pass the entrance examination held by the respective university to enrol on any course under Master of Science in Nepal.  

Upon graduation, students from M.Sc. can get work opportunities in IT Companies, health care sectors, educational sectors, manufacturing companies, Automobile Industries, Food companies, Transportation, Hydropower projects, consultancies, data companies, Roads and Construction, and more.
