Diploma in Civil Engineering


A Diploma in Civil Engineering is a technical degree program that focuses on the design, construction, and maintenance of various structures such as buildings, bridges, roads, and water supply systems. It typically takes 3-4 years to complete and provides students with a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, and engineering principles. The curriculum of the program covers topics such as engineering mechanics, surveying, construction materials, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, and environmental engineering. Students also gain hands-on experience through laboratory work and practical projects. Upon graduation, diploma holders in civil engineering can work in a variety of fields such as construction, consulting, and public works departments. They can also choose to pursue further studies such as a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or a related field.

The candidates can receive the application form from the administration office or authorized center by paying the fee structured by CTEVT.


  • All Nepalese and foreign candidates must meet the entrance requirement of CTEVT.
  • Domicile certificate or passport for foreign students(2 copies).
  • Students from the general stream should be SEE/SLC passed or equivalence. TSLC students should have an aggregate mark of 66.66% from IOE and 68.33% from CTEVT.

The main role of civil engineering is planning, designing, estimating, and supervising construction, managing construction, execution and maintenance of structure that includes residential buildings, public buildings, industrial building, roads, bridges, tunnels, railways, dams, canals, airports, harbours, ports, water treatment plants, water supply networks and drainage networks.
