Bachelor course in Civil Engineering (BE Civil) for Diploma Graduates is designed to train competent graduates in Civil Engineering, joining the course after completion of Diploma level education.
The Bachelor program in Civil (For Diploma Holders), leading to B.E Civil (Bachelor of Civil Engineering) degree is a four and half year course.
Three unique features of the course are:
i) classes scheduled in the afternoon on the working days and weekend providing opportunity to the jobholders joining the course,
ii) course curriculum built on prior knowledge and skills of Diploma graduates comparable to regular academic courses in engineering offered in any part of the world, and
iii) emphasis of the curriculum delivery to build key knowledge and competence to take-up professional challenges.
The students joining the course undergo systematic theoretical and practical learning in basic sciences, material engineering, structural engineering, water resources engineering, geo-technical engineering and transportation engineering. This provides the students opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to take up array of infrastructure development tasks where civil engineers have important role to play.
Upon successful completion of the course the students are awarded Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) degree in Civil Engineering by Pokhara University.
