They have been getting the placement in higher level companies of the state
It is often heard that the course of CSIT in Nepal is less practical and ineffective in the market, what do you have to say on it?
Tribhuvan University hadn’t upgraded its course from last 10-15 years which is a sad thing for all the teacher and student associated with CSIT program. Though the University hadn’t updated its progression from a long time back, we have always managed to provide the course of the updated version. We always emphasize on the path that carries a significant role in today’s IT world. As we all know the technology changes every day; that’s why too it is a tough job for a university to change the course. Along with TU curriculum, regarding make our student smarter and updated in the IT scene we are offering various professional courses that are only taught in the foreign university.

For deserving students, we can provide the best job opportunities. We do have our own IT company i.e. Softech Foundation. Many of our students are working as an intern and official in Softech. Similarly, we do have a good relationship with many other IT and business industry where our scholars are actively engaged.
