History of Institute of Engineering (IOE) in Tribhuvan University

Nepal started to deliver Engineering Education from 1942 by the establishment of Technical Training School. The school had an engineering section, which was providing only trade and civil sub-overseers programs. However in 1959, the Nepal Engineering Institute along with the assistance of government of India began offering civil overseer courses, allowing students to acquire Diploma in Civil Engineering.

In 1965, the Technical Training Institute with the help of Government of federal republic of Germany began providing technical courses in auto mechanics, electrical engineering, general mechanics and mechanical drafting. Big step towards growth was undertaken when in the year 1972,  Nepal Engineering Institute at Pulchowk and the Technical Training Institute at Thapathali were brought under the Tribhuvan University and renamed to Pulchowk Campus and Thapathali Campus.

From those days till today, the Institute of Engineering has witnessed expansion and considerable growth.  With the assistance from UNPD/ILO the technician programs in Electrical, Electronics, Refrigeration/Air-conditioning Engineering was started. The Architecture Technician program was started by the IOE on its own. IOE, apart from being helped by UNPD/ILO was also very well assisted by World Bank and the UK.
