BE in Electrical Engineering | Tribhuvan University

Tribhuvan University provides an undergraduate degree in the field of electrical engineering, termed as Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (B.E.E.). It is a 4 years degree provided to the students who desire to graduate in this area.

The department of B.E.E. comprises of some other divisions as well. Students have their own preference to join a particular division and continue with the same. Some students focus on the study of electronic components while others prefer to study transmission and exertion of electrical power. This program also allows students to have the knowledge of the application of these compounds in the other areas such as medicine, ecology, biology and geology.

Fee structure:

The fee structure varies from each and every academic institutions. The cost of completing B.E.E. lies between Rs.7 to 12 lakhs. The cost of pursuing the program in IOE and constituent campuses like Thapathali, and Eastern Regional College is lower compared to that of the private institutions.

Scope and Career Prospects

Nowadays, we all are surrounded by the electrical devices. We have been so used to all those devices, that it is very difficult for us to survive a day without them. But, have we ever wondered how all those devices work and who are the one behind them? Well the obvious answer will be a 'NO'. Behind all those devices are the electrical engineers who are responsible for everything, from building them to maintaining them.  Electrical Engineers work with everything which is around us from switch boards to computers.

An engineer holding this degree can apply for jobs in various sectors. Some of the sectors are automotive, aerospace, energy, IT and telecommunications. Electrical engineers are highly employable and can get involved with different organizations too.
