Civil Engineering with Specialization in Hydropower and Structural Engineering:
Infrastructure development should be financially viable, socially acceptable and ecologically sustainable. Civil engineering encompasses branches of engineering science to develop and maintain sustainable infrastructures. It covers a wide-range of specialized fields that address all the above mentioned issues. Hydropower Engineering is the specialized field of civil engineering that requires multi-disciplinary knowledge of Science and Technology. Nepal's present goal is to build hydropower projects for economic and social development. The vision is to install 25 GW in ten years. This ambition must be addressed from all levels of Society. It is vital to increase the in-house capacity by implementing technically sound plans, designs, operations and maintenance of hydropower plants. The complexity of modern structures requires a great deal of creativity. The Structural engineering aspect must be to ensure structural integrity. This educational institution, Kathmandu University, aspires to proactively produce quality human resources directly to meet the national challenges for hydroelectricity. The program that started on August 2009 will produce the first batch of civil engineers by 2013. Students enrolled in this program will benefit from exceptional quality of education and will also enjoy the wonderful nature and pollution free learning environment at Dhulikhel.
The main objectives of the course are:
* To address the need of hydropower industry.
