Bachelors of Computer Engineering program is a 4-year (8 semesters) 130 credit undergraduate engineering program.  The program is concerned with the analysis, design and evaluation of computer systems, both hardware and software. The program emphasizes computer organization and architecture, systems programming, operating systems and digital hardware design. This field of study not only focuses on how computer systems work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

The goal of the program is to ensure that the graduates are fundamentally sound, practical, participatory and professional. Specifically, after graduation, the successful graduates are expected to be engaged in successful professional practice in their chosen discipline who can demonstrate personal and professional leadership in their workplace and community. They are also expected to demonstrate effective communication in an engineering environment, and utilize formal and informal learning opportunities to maintain and enhance technical and professional growth.


The Computer Engineering graduates are expected to have:

  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  • an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  • an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as required, using appropriate learning strategies.


  • The candidates should have completed Class 12 examination of NEB or equivalent level from a recognized academic institution.
  • The candidates should have studied at least one course (having at least 100 full marks or 5 credits) each in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
  • The candidates should have scored a minimum of 45% or a CGPA/GPA of 2.0 (in a scale of 4.0) and at least Grade C (in case of A-level, at least Grade D) or 45% in each subject (Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics).

The minimum criterion of Grade C (in case of A level, Grade D) or 45% does not apply to other courses or extra courses, if any. Candidates should have studied mathematics of at least 100 marks in Class 11 or class 12 examination of NEB or equivalent level.
