IT Courses in Nepal

As an IT Profession, IT Graduated, IT Engineer I like to explore the IT Courses offered in Nepal by universities and the colleges. It is a growing  industry in the Country and still there are many questions we hear and need to face many times about the IT Courses, their differences, scope of them and many more. So in this article I will also try to list and explain the IT courses in Nepal.

Information Technology- IT Courses  are courses, classes which teach about information technology and its application in real life. No-one is disconnected from it, life becoming more and more easy for the information access. Information Technology has a direct impact on society and human life. Use of IT becoming the measurement tool of the development of society and nations.

As it impacts the direct everyday life of human beings, individual or business its scope is also increasing day by day. That is why many people like to choose IT as a major subject in their study. Many graduated from other fields also switching to IT as their career.

Any individual can not stay updated and can not be smart without information technology. Business can not grow and can not be managed without IT and its use in the daily operation. So  IT is becoming more and more friendly with life and being part of every human being and business. That is why IT courses are also important and popular among us in Nepal.

There are many IT courses running in Nepal among them I will categorise them with Bachelor and Master. I will try to list the colleges and universities who offering IT courses in Nepal.
