Thapathali campus introduced Bachelor in Industrial Engineering in 2062 B.S. under the Department of Industrial Engineering as the first bachelor program in campus for the first time in Nepal as well.The numbers of available seats are 12 regular seats and 36 full fee seats as shown in table below.
Bachelor in Industrial Engineering program aims to provide knowledge of industrial management and knowledge of existing technologies and methodologies in various industries around the globe. The graduates in bachelor in industrial engineering are expected to serve in industrial sector of Nepal and contribute in enhancement of production of goods and services.
Bachelor in Industrial Engineering course will provide an opportunity to young Nepalese Students to obtain the background knowledge necessary to be a professional in a rapidly changing global economy. These engineers will be able to work in a variety of national and international industries like Hydropower and Renewable and Alternative Energy, Telecommunication, Food and Beverage, Manufacturing, Textiles, Pharmaceuticals, Automobile and Transportation, Bio-medical Engineering, Production Management, Airlines sector, Industrial Management and Consulting Projects, etc.
The objective of the course is to produce engineers interested in and capable of handling the challenges faced by the industrial sectors in technical as well as managerial aspects in Nepal. Graduate engineers will be entrepreneurs, managers, and technical experts and professionals to enhance the pace of industrial development in Nepal.
Students who have passed 10+2 or equivalent examinations with minimum of 50% marks in aggregate and 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics (PCM) are eligible to apply for the admission in Bachelor in Industrial Engineering program.
As companies and organizations embrace management philosophies of continuous productivity and quality improvement to survive in the increasingly competitive world market, the need for industrial and engineers is growing.
While most other engineering disciplines apply skills to very specific areas, a career in IE gives you the flexibility and opportunity to work in a wide array of businesses and organizations.
Since the focus of IE graduates is to design processes and systems that improve quality and productivity, they work to eliminate, or significantly reduce, the waste of time, money, materials, energy, and other commodities.
The course will have following components:
Theory will deal with the fundamentals required in basic science, technology and engineering subjects relevant to existing as well as perspective industries in Nepal. Subjects like Management, Hydropower, Renewable Energy, Bio-medical technology, Automobile Technology, Refrigeration And Air conditioning, Maintenance Engineering, Production Technologies ,etc which have future scope in Nepal as well as in international markets will be dealt in this course.
Practical subjects will develop the skills of the students in the engineering application. Theoretical knowledge will be applied in the practical training courses.
Project work will provide the students an opportunity to be intuitive, creative and develop skills to solve specific problems. A project report will be written by each student individually or jointly based on the project that has been completed and will be submitted to the department. One additional project will be on “Entrepreneurship Development” aspects. In this project each student has to develop a business plan incorporating legal, planning, project design, financial, technical, marketing aspects as well as managerial aspects.
On the Job Training (OJT) / Industrial Attachment will be of 15 weeks and students are sent to particular industry based on their interest and availability. It will be a part of the course. Based on availability, students could also be sent to foreign companies to have on the job training.
For Seminar Paper, each student has to select a related topic and present a research paper based on secondary information and it will be a part of the course.
