Overview of B.Sc. CSIT

Introduction

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Information Technology (B.Sc.CSIT) curriculum is designed by closely following the courses practiced in accredited international universities, subject to the condition that the intake students are twelve years of schooling in the science stream or equivalent from any university recognized by Tribhuvan University (TU). In addition to the foundation and core Computer Science and Information Technology courses, the program offers several elective courses to fulfill the demand of high technology applications development. The foundation and core courses are designed to meet the undergraduate academic program requirement, and the service courses are designed to meet the need of fast changing computer technology and application. Students enrolled in the four year B.Sc.CSIT program are required to take courses in design and implementation of computer software systems, foundation in the theoretical model of computer science, and a functional background of computer hardware. All undergraduate students are required to complete 126 credit hours of computer science course and allied courses.

Objective

The main objective of B.Sc.CSIT program is to provide students intensive knowledge and skill on different areas of computer science and information technology including design, theory, programming and application of computer system. It is envisaged that graduate of this program will be equipped with necessary knowledge of computer software and hardware system.

Eligibility Criteria for Admission

A student who seeks admission to B.Sc.CSIT program:

  • Should have successfully completed twelve years of schooling in the science stream or equivalent form any university, board or nstitution.
  • Should have secured a minimum of second division.
  • Should have successfully passed the entrance examination conducted by Institute of Science and Technology (IOST), TU.
  • Complied with all the application procedures.

Course Duration:

The entire course is of eight semesters (four academic years). There is a separate semester examination after the end of each semester.

Hours of Instruction

  • Working days: 90 days in a semester
  • Class hours: 3 credit hour courses with theory and lab is equivalent to 3 hours theory and 3 hours lab = 6 working hours per week and 3 credit hours theory-only course is equivalent 3 hours theory and 2 hours tutorial = 5 working hours per week.

Evaluation

Theory course should have internal weightage of 20% and external weightage of 80%. For the course having lab work, the internal weightage is 20%, lab work weightage is 20% and external weightage is 60%. A student should secure minimum of 40% in each category to pass a course. The final score in each course will be the sum of overall weightage of in all categories. There will be a separate practical examination for the 20% weightage of lab work conducted by concerned college in the presence of an external examiner. The project work and internship are evaluated by different evaluators. To pass project work and internship, students should secure at least 40% marks in the evaluation of each evaluator and final score will be the sum of all the evaluations. For the evaluation of final presentation, an external examiner will be assigned from the IOST.

The Grading System

A student having passed his/her 8 semesters (4 years) of study will be graded as follows:

  • Distinction: 80 % and above ( 8 semester’s average)
  • First Division: 70 % and above ( 8 semester’s average)
  • Second Division: 55 % and above ( 8 semester’s average)
  • Pass Division: 40 % and above ( 8 semester’s average)

Attendance Requirement

Students are required to attend regularly all theory and practical classes and should maintain 80 percent attendance in each course separately.

Final Examination

Institute of science and technology, Tribhuvan University, will conduct the final examination at the end of each semester. 80% weightage will be given to the final examination for theory course and 60% will be given for the course having both theory and practical.
