KATHMANDU, March 20: Minister for Education, Science and Technology Devendra Paudel has urged the authorities concerned to pay attention to the strengthening of the campuses affiliated to Tribhuvan University (TU). 

Addressing the 56th anniversary of Thapathali Campus, Institute of Engineering, here today, Minister Paudel argued that the higher education sector would not see improvements unless universities were modernized.

Paudel asserted, "The educational institutions where 80 per cent of the students of the country study should not have a traditional approach anymore. Such institutions should be attuned to modern times."

He was of the view that TU should pay attention to the consolidation of its affiliated campuses. The minister urged the aspiring engineers as well as those already in the profession to be serious toward the development of infrastructures since, he argued, engineers had a greater role in it. 

Minister Paudel shared that the government would begin the construction of physical infrastructures of more than 40 campuses across the country starting this year.

He opined that the desired result could be achieved only if there is proper action-plan, efficiency, discipline, diligence and energy.
