List of Engineering Colleges in Nepal

Until Tri-Chandra College was established in 1918, there was no higher education in Nepal. It was in 1959, the first university in Nepal, Tribhuwan University was established. For the next 26 years, until Mahendra Sanskrit University (established in 1985), Tribhuwan University was the only university in Nepal.
