The Bachelor in Information Technology (BIT)  is a 4-year (semester-based) course run by Tribhuvan University (TU)’s Institute of Science and Technology (IOST) which is modeled after the courses taught at authorized foreign universities.

In addition to the foundation and core Information Technology courses, the program includes many optional courses to fulfill the undergraduate academic program requirement as well as the demand for new technology development and implementation.

Students in the four-year BIT program must complete foundation and core courses in information technology, as well as courses in mathematics, statistics, management, economics, sociology, psychology, research methodology, technical writing, and certain electives.

All undergraduate students must complete 120 credit hours of information technology and related courses and will have opportunities in software development, information security, database administration, network and system administration, and all sectors that develop and/or use information technology.

Objective

The primary objective of the BIT program is to offer students with extensive knowledge and skills in the design, development, and application of information technology in many fields. It is expected that graduates of this degree would be equipped with the essential information technology understanding to compete in today’s global environment.

Eligibility

A student who seeks admission to the BIT program:

  • Should have completed a twelve-year education in any field or equivalent from a university, board, or institution recognized by TU.
  • Should have at least a second division in their +2 or equivalent OR a ‘C’ grade or CGPA 2.0 in all subjects in Class 11 and 12 by taking English and Mathematics for 100 marks. Or,
  • Passed A level in any subject with at least a ‘D’ in English and Mathematics. Or,
  • Completed the 3 Year Diploma in Engineering program taking both English and Mathematics from CTEVT.
  • Candidates who failed (NG) at least two topics in the 12th or comparable test and filled out the examination application form for grade improvement would be permitted to apply for the BIT entrance examination.

Evaluation

Except for project work and internships, all courses should have an internal weightage of 40% and an external weightage of 60%. The internal weightage for the course with laboratory work is divided into 20% laboratory work and 20% internal evaluation. To pass a course, a student must get a minimum of 40% in each area.

The overall weightage of all categories will be added to the final grade and grade point in each course. There will be a separate practical test in the presence of an external examiner for the 20% weightage of lab work.

Different assessors assess the project work and internship. To pass Project Work and Internship, students must receive at least 40% in each evaluator’s review, and the final grade and grade point will be the total of all evaluations. An external examiner will be assigned to evaluate the final presentation.

Grading System

Each student’s mark in each subject is determined by internal and external evaluations of his or her overall performance. For continual internal evaluation, several evaluation criteria are applied. External evaluation is primarily based on the Institute of Science and Technology (IoST) test.

Each course grade is issued using a letter grade that shows each student’s total achievement in each course. The chart below depicts letters together with their associated grading scale, grade point, and performance evaluations.

Letter Grade Grading Scale Grade Point Performance Remarks
A 90-100 4 Outstanding
A- 80 – less than 90 3.7 Excellent
B+ 70 – less than 80 3.3 Very Good
B 60 – less than 70 3 Good
B- 50 – less than 60 2.7 Satisfactory
C 40 – less than 50 2.3 Pass (Acceptable)
F 0 – less than 40 0 Fail

Each student’s performance in each semester will be evaluated in terms of Semester Grade Point Average (SGPA), which is the semester’s grade point average. The SGPA is computed as

SGPA=(Total Grade Points Earned in a semester) / (Total Number of Credits Earned in the Semester)

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) is the average of all semester grades. The CGPA is determined as follows:

CGPA: (Total Grade Points Earned) / (Total Number of Credits Completed)

Final Examination

Tribhuvan University’s Institute of Science and Technology will administer final exams at the conclusion of each semester for all courses excluding Project Work and Internship. This final test is worth 60% of the total weightage.

Fee Structure

The fee structure of the BIT courses at Tribhuvan University is around 3.5 Lakhs. Since it is available in only constituent colleges of TU, you will find similar fee structures in all colleges.
