Transportation infrastructure development projects face a number of challenges especially in the developing countries like Nepal where infrastructures have to be developed in the situation of resource constraints yet these are required to be sensitive to geo-technical and environmental specifities. This demands appropriate technologies meet the spectrum of transportation needs both in the rural areas and city centers, supporting the needs of wide ranging traffic and speeds.
These complexities have led to the need of qualified manpower, research and technology development and promotion of appropriate technologies in the areas of transportation planning and infrastructure development. Realizing the dearth of qualified manpower in this area, Nepal Engineering College (nec) has started Masters’ course in Transportation Engineering and Management leading to M.Sc. degree.
Candidates for M.Sc. (Transportation Engineering and Management) program should have a second division (or 2.0 GPA) in Civil, Engineering, from an institution recognized by Pokhara University. Besides the basic academic requirements, an entrance test will be held by the college for all Nepalese applicants.
