How are the CTEVT programs?
The CTEVT programs are excellent and life-enhancing. However, it should redeem its image as it is emasculating in the course of time, especially in terms of affiliation and enrollment procedures. Furthermore, it should focus on faculty development. Now, the CTEVT seems to be gearing up its pace to catch up the government’s pledge to allow access of technical education to people of every rural village of Nepal.
Could you share with us the growing significance of technical education in Biratnagar?
Biratnagar is at the forefront vis-à-vis impartation of technical education. A range of course choices has been available in this lively city since the establishment of CTEVT. Moreover, the college is accessed by every pupil irrespective of their castes, ethnicity, status considerations and geographical anomalies. Basically, this swathe is annexed with Terai belts and mountainous regions; so all types of students feel convenient to come here for their regular classes.
What suggestion would you like to convey to the SEE graduates as the founder of Koshi Health Institute?
Even today there is a wrong notion that brainy students should not get enrolled for technical courses. Technical education is thought to be obtained only by under-performing students; therefore, so we are not able to attract intelligent, studious, and high graded students in this field. In fact, the students who receive even shot-term technical courses can immediately get a job and can escalate their economic status. So, I urge all SEE graduates that they should ensure affluent future by studying technical and vocational education. It is the need and demand of current time.
Koshi Health Institute is committed and dedicated to imparting quality education at very affordable cost. So, I would like to request SEE graduates to visit the college once before making a quick decision on enrollment in another college. And technical course can be the best option as it has many scopes and opportunities to work in the country and beyond.
