Nepal has entered into the era of economic prosperity and social development. With economic prosperity, human settlements undergo transformation including rapid urbanization. Nepal faces dual challenge of conserving the traditional character of her existing settlements and creating completely new settlements that can provide modern amenities to the growing population. The need of architects and engineers will grow further in the years to come.
The B. Arch course in KU has been designed to address the need of the Nepalese society-both urban and rural, in shaping a sustainable, eco-friendly and livable built environment. However, to give it a distinct character, the course has been tailored to focus more on mountain architecture. Nepal, being a predominantly a mountainous country, is also a seat of ancient civilization and a melting pot of Indian and Tibetan culture and architecture. The technology developed over a many centuries need to be explored and developed to create modern human settlements in the existing geographical, social and cultural environment.
