BIT is a budding discipline in the sector of information and technology. What makes this discipline distinct from other IT disciplines is its leniency towards the practical aspects of IT rather than an intensive curriculum based more on theory, which is often the case with other disciplines of the same sector. BIT is also preferred by the students more inclined towards the management field of IT sector. The discipline is however new compared to other IT disciplines in Nepal and offered by rather few institutions but is expected to expand in the coming years.
