The essential characteristic traits for being a successful engineer is an analytical mind, sound mathematical and scientific foundation, strong problem solving abilities, eye for details, curiosity to learn, ability to understand complex task, ability to put practical use of theories, curiosity to understand the complex ways of handling a task, ability to work with a team, deep sense of responsibility and communication, strong communication skills. In order to get admission into a good engineering college a student has to secure a good position in the Engineering Entrance Exams conducted all over Nepal by different engineering institutes affiliated to Nepalese Universities.

There are quite a good number of engineering colleges in Nepal that provide engineering courses in various parts of the country. Civil Engineering, Architecture , Computer Engineering, Electronics and Communication, Electrical and Electronics, Energy Engineering, Civil and Rural Engineering are some of the popular engineering courses in Nepal. While the B.E. Architecture courses are of 5 years duration, other bachelor degree courses are of 4 years duration. Most of the engineering colleges in Nepal are also offering engineering in Masters Degree courses. Like Kathmandu University offers master of engineering in several discipline like computer, electronics and communication, mechanical and etc.

 


Most of these engineering Colleges in Nepal admit the local students through an entrance test. However foreign students are admitted on the basis of their performance in a personal interview. Candidates, to be eligible for admission to the engineering colleges in Nepal, should at least pass the Intermediate in Science or diploma in engineering or its equivalent.


Most of the engineering entrance tests have several papers. Most of the paper of the exam is generally segmented into sections containing question on Physics, Chemistry, English and Mathematics, and in some of the university, general knowledge sections. The prime objective of this paper is to measure the students clarity of concepts in physics, mathematics, chemistry, English clarity and mechanics. These tests also give a lot of emphasis to measure the student’s ability to understand mathematical models, analytical ability, detailed orientation and problem solving approach. The paper gauges the student’s ability through various patterns such as objective type questions, assertions and reason, comprehension and subjective pattern. Candidates applying for the Architecture course will have to appear in the aptitude test in place of Chemistry.  The Aptitude test measures the aspirants perceptive power, observation and creative potential.
