Illumination Engineering - Project ELNAB, co-funded by ERASMUS+ Program of EU

Courses offered as an elective and training course in the field of Illumination Engineering has been developed and practiced at Kathmandu University as an outcome of ELNAB (Promoting Energy Efficient Lighting Education in Nepal and Bhutan) Project.


ERASMUS+ Co- Funded


The overall objective of the project is to support Nepali and Bhutanese Higher Education Institutions to provide education that promotes sustainable socio-economic development. The project aims to assist Nepal and Bhutan to reduce electricity consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions through capacity building of human resources in the fields of energy efficient lighting systems.

The specific objectives of the project are:

1. To raise awareness in efficient lighting management and to identify important factors of needs and opportunities in efficient lighting in Nepal and Bhutan
2. To develop energy efficient lighting courses and lighting laboratory
3. To enhance and upgrade the skills of teaching staffs for improved academic environment


Courses developed in the project
