A few weeks back, we reported that the Institute of Engineering Studies (IOE) of Tribhuvan University is increasing the fee for Bachelor Programs (Engineering & Architecture) from this year onwards.
Now, IOE has officially announced the new fee structure for all Engineering and Architecture Bachelor programs. The new fee structure for 4 years of Bachelor of Engineering and Architecture is NPR 7,75,420 for full fee seats. It is NPR 4,56,540 hike as the fee from 4 years till last year was just NPR 3,18,880.
However, this new fee structure doesn’t affect last year’s students and this new fee structure will be implemented from this year’s new admission only.
Likewise, the regular seats (scholarship) students will have to pay NPR 83,420 (4 years). For foreign students, the fee is NPR 15,99,320.
This is a 120% fee hike which is massive. However, there is a provision of increasing the fee by 10% every year (from 2053) but TU was running the BE course with the same fee every year. So, this new fee makes sense.
Likewise, there are 10 affiliated colleges to IOE which are as follows:
|Kantipur Engineering College||Lalitpur|
|Kathmandu Engineering College||Kathmandu|
|Himalaya College of Engineering||Lalitpur|
|Advanced College of Engineering and Management||Lalitpur|
|National College of Engineering||Lalitpur|
|Kathford International College of Engineering and Management||Lalitpur|
|Janakpur Engineering College||Bhaktapur|
|Khwopa College of Engineering||Bhaktapur|
|Sagarmatha Engineering College||Lalitpur|
|Lalitpur Engeinneering College||Lalitpur|
There are 12 engineering programs under IOE which are as follows:
- Civil Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Electronics, Communication, and Information Engineering
- Mechanical Engineering
- Computer Engineering
- Agriculture Engineering
- Industrial Engineering
- Geomatics Engineering
- Automobile Engineering
