History[edit] Established under the TU Act in 1959, Tribhuvan University
Tribhuvan University
is the oldest and largest university in Nepal. The university was named after the late King Tribhuvan. In its early years, all the postgraduate classes were held at Tripureshwor Campus. The administrative office was also located in Tripureshwor. It was only in 1967, that the university was relocated to its main campus in Kirtipur
– an ancient town about 5 km south-west of the city of Kathmandu. The university at Kirtipur, which spreads over an area of 154.77 hectares, constitutes the Central Administrative Office and the Central Campus.[6] TU marked its golden jubilee in 2009 organizing programmes. Academics[edit]

Since its inception, the state-owned university has expanded its programmes. There are five technical institutes and four general faculties. The university offers 115 courses for the technical proficiency certificate level. TU offers 1079 courses at Bachelor's level and 1000 courses at Master’s level. It offers Ph.D. degrees in the technical institutes and faculties. TU ran its programmes only through its constituent campuses before 1980. With the increasing number of students wanting higher education, it was not possible to accommodate all the students in the constituent campuses. This situation led to the establishment of colleges in the private sector because the constituent campuses alone could not meet the demand. From 1979–80, TU started providing affiliation to private colleges. As of April 2016, 1,084 private and public colleges were affiliated with TU.[7] In the 2014–2015 academic session 4,05,341 students were enrolled in TU academic programmes. 1,48,141 (36.55%) students study in its 60 constituent campuses including 38 central departments, while 2,57,200 (63.45%) students study in 1,053 affiliated colleges.[8][citation needed] TU has 7,841 teaching faculty and 7,413 non-teaching staff including the support staff in its constituent campuses. The number of total employees is 15,254.[9][citation needed] Technical institutes[edit] The university administers its science and technology programs, such as BSc, BE, MBBS, etc., through its technical institutes. There are five technical institutes at the university, each taking care of a specific domain within the field of science and technology education.
