Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering enables people to design, construct and maintain manmade environment and also modify and maintain natural environment. Development of a country is only possible if all parts of it are connected to each other and the resources of each part are easily transferable. Civil engineering makes such connection possible by developing roads, bridges, airports, canals, tunnels and railways, and makes the development of each place possible by constructing buildings for houses, offices, schools, universities, hospitals, shopping malls etc. Our undergraduate program in Civil Engineering enables you to become a leader and innovator of tomorrow’s complex world.

For civil engineering aspirants, we offer a wide range of courses including hydropower engineering, concrete technology, engineering geology, transportation engineering, soil mechanics, design of steel structures and construction management. The knowledge developed through these theoretical foundations are strengthened by numerous practice-based teaching methodologies including practical studies, projects, workshops, competitions and challenges. At Kathford, we vow to develop outstanding civil engineering graduates not only with professional and technical expertise but also with passion to innovate, zeal to learn more and strength to overcome any challenge they face.

Career Prospects

After graduating with Civil Engineering degree from Kathford, you would have a handful of job offers from various organizations and engineering firms which would begin your career in planning, designing, construction and maintenance of physical infrastructures and natural environment. Nepal, being a developing country and needing enormous amount of physical infrastructure for its economic growth, provides unprecedented opportunities for civil engineers.

You can get jobs for planning, designing, construction and maintenance of roads, bridges, tunnels, houses, offices, shopping and residential complexes, water and sanitation systems, airports, hydropower dams and other infrastructure. You can excel in engineering practice in the public and private sectors in the technical areas of environmental, geo-technical, material, construction, structural, transportation, earthquake, hydraulic, and water resources engineering. After the mighty earthquake and with the need to reconstruct numerous infrastructures, the country needs more civil engineers than ever.
