Kathmandu University School of Engineering (KUSOE), established in 1994 AD, has been running various bachelor and master programs mainly specialized in the field of engineering. It is an autonomous, non-profit, and self-funding academic institution. It has departments of computer science and engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical science and engineering, and geomantics engineering. It is situated in Dhulikhel, Kathmandu. The academic programs in each area of engineering open up career paths in related fields after meticulous learning of engineering courses. The School of Engineering academic departments always seek to produce self-motivated, competitive, and creative graduates with entrepreneurial mindsets after the successful completion of the course.
School of Engineering Kathmandu University has been a world-class engineering school since its inception and represents our country in the global arena. We focus on benchmarks of excellence in areas of research that target societal challenges, empowering education to be a change agent for the future, equal and equitable access in engineering areas, and entrepreneurship to bring great ideas to global industry. The main learning mantras adopted by the school of engineering are problem-based, project-based, challenge-based learning, and research on pressing issues of sustainable development with emerging technologies, such as climate change.
We have both challenges and opportunities before us, and it is possible with unification and hard work from engineering students.
