About College

KEC – Kantipur Engineering College, under the affiliation of Tribhuvan University, has been imparting engineering education since 1998 with the objective to produce qualified and proficient engineers capable of facing the engineering challenges of this modern era, where science and technology is dominating every fields of our life. At the time, engineering subjects were revolutionary—today, they’re more important than ever. In these years, we put enormous efforts and spent a lot of resources to pursue excellence in engineering education. At present, KEC is one of the largest and among the few colleges having its own physical infrastructure. To date, we have produced thirtynine batches of engineers in the field of Civil, Computer and Electronics & Communication Engineering. Most of our graduates are performing well both nationally and internationally.

The acumen, teamed with KEC’s core commitment of excellence in education, ensures that our students will be given the best possible opportunity to achieve the skills required to succeed in their chosen profession- both today and tomorrow. We welcome all the students, who are determined to build their career in the field of engineering.

Course Description

Engineering is an art based primarily upon training in mathematics and physical sciences and utilizing economically the forces and material of nature for the benefit of mankind. Engineering is concerned with designing, constructing and maintaining works of public utility. Civil engineering focuses on works like transportation, irrigation, and public health. The main role of civil engineering is planning, designing, estimating, and supervising construction, managing construction, execution and maintenance of structure that includes residential buildings, public buildings, industrial building, roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, dams, canals, airports, harbours, ports, water treatment plants, water supply networks and drainage networks.

Civil engineers are problem solvers and have always faced the challenges of thinking about the future, advancing civilization and improving our quality of life. There is huge demand for civil engineers in Nepal and it is also expected to get a boost as the country gets ready to upgrade its infrastructure with growing economic and political clout in the world. The career opens a lot of opportunities in numerous government departments. Career opportunities for these professionals are available with firms of both the private and public sectors. We can witness in our country the development of roads, buildings, hydropower and irrigation projects, water supply projects and other structures. This can also be one of the reasons why students of today are opting for civil engineering. After the devastating earthquake of   April 25th, 2015, National Reconstruction Authority was established for the reconstruction of damaged structure, where civil engineer can play crucial role. Besides this, job opportunities are obtainable for them abroad too. With the recent boom in the construction industry, the infrastructural growth within the country has gone up. The career scopes for civil engineers are many and they can get very lucrative careers.

With both the current worldwide construction boom and the wider debate regarding environmental policy, civil engineering has never been more relevant or important to society than it is today. With civil engineering practices affecting every area of the built environment, today we acknowledge the growing importance of a very diverse specialism within the infrastructure industry. Amongst all branches of engineering, the range and application of civil engineering is the broadest and most visible. One has to plan out, design and supervise the construction of different types of buildings/structure and architectures. For the developing country like Nepal, civil engineer is the best profession. There is huge scope of civil engineering for the development of country and prosperity of country and people.

Course Description

Computer engineering is a branch of engineering that integrates Electronic Engineering with Computer Sciences. It also integrates several fields of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences required in developing computer hardware and software. Unlike its hardware counterpart (Electronics & Communication Engineering), Computer Engineering focuses mainly on software. B.E. in Computer Engineering (TU) is a four year program which aims to make students acquaint with the fundamental theory, practice and latest developments in computer science, information technology and engineering, etc. In this program, 55 subjects are offered in 8 semesters. Students pass through lectures, laboratory exercises, field visits and various projects. Effort of qualified faculties is augmented with special lectures by experts and reputed scholars. Graduates of this program work in fields like software development, databases, networking, system administration, etc., in government, non-government, international organizations and offices, etc.

The important aspect of computer engineering is software development. Computer software includes:

  • Applications: word processing, spreadsheets, accounting, computer graphics, computer-assisted design (CAD), computer-assisted manufacturing (CAM), audio, video, media and games
  • Programming Languages: editing, compiling and debugging computer programs
  • Operating Systems
  • Database Management Systems
  • Distributed Systems
  • Networking and Communications: World Wide Web (WWW), voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP), instant messaging and email
  • Artificial Intelligence: Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Computer Vision, Human Computer Interaction (HCI)
  • Digital Signal Processing: Image Processing, Speech Processing, Audio/Video Processing
  • Utilities: file handling, disk management, device drivers, archiving and backup systems
  • Security: antivirus, firewalls, encryption and user authentication.

Computer engineers also get trainings in electronic engineering, software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems work themselves, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, designing VLSI chips, designing analog sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, and designing operating systems. Computer engineers are also suited for robotics research, which relies heavily on using digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors, communications, and sensors.

Employment of software developers is projected to grow by 22 percent from 2012 to 2022, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. The main reason for the rapid growth is a large increase in the demand for computer software. Having good grades from a highly rated institution should give a job seeker an advantage over the competition.

There are records of Nepali computer engineers finding jobs in companies as large as Microsoft and Google. There are also professionals in this field who earn a 6 digit salary every month in Nepal. Moreover, there is a widely held belief that computer engineering students are the quickest in getting a job as soon as they finish their university education. Furthermore, the chances of finding a part time job or internship even during one’s university days is very high as compared to other branches of engineering. For those people who don’t like working for others and want to be self-employed, no other branch of engineering comes even close to offering the sort of self-employment opportunities that computer engineers get. From making money by blogging, to creating websites for business owners; from providing billing software for schools, to selling useful apps for mobiles, these are all opportunities that a capable computer engineer can get after or even before getting a degree.
