The Institute of Engineering (IOE), Pashchimanchal Campus has initiated a two years (4-semester) M.Sc. Engineering from 2015 with the aims to provide students with expertise in the field of communication system, computer systems, knowledge engineering, artificial engineering and Machine learning and make the students blossom into meritorious and self-disciplined engineers through a new system of teaching. As recent trends and industries become more automated and society becomes more dependent on electronic data communication, the demand daily increases for professionals who can make informed decisions based on technical knowledge and experience. That is why the master in communication and knowledge Engineering (MSCmK) program at institute of engineering, Pashchimanchal campus Pokhara has such a progressive curriculum.

Knowledge engineering involves integrating knowledge into computer systems in order to solve complex problems requiring a high level of human expertise. At present, it refers to the building, maintaining, and developing of knowledge base systems. It has domains such as artificial intelligence, including databases, data mining, expert systems, decision support systems, and information systems. Knowledge engineering is also related to mathematical logic, as well as strongly involved in cognitive science and socio-cognitive engineering where the knowledge is produced by socio-cognitive aggregates and is structured according to our understanding of how human reasoning and logic works. It aims to provide students with expertise in the perspective field of hardware and software. It emphasizes the design, development, and programming of computer systems and computer engineering. The program has a particular emphasis on embedded hardware and distributed software systems.


To be internationally recognized as the master program that meets the challenges of modern industry, learning, research, innovation and society with distinctive curriculum, technical knowledge, creative & innovative approach. To nurture leadership qualities with human and educational values through research and broad education in diverse disciplines.


The main objectives of the course are to:

  • to produce highly competent professionals in the field of computer system, machine learning, Artificial intelligence, Deep Learning and knowledge engineering
  • enhance the analytical skills and problem-solving capability in handling current issues in computer system, machine learning, Artificial intelligence, Deep Learning and knowledge engineering
  • develop research skill in students to make them capable of carrying out sound research in computer system, machine learning, Artificial intelligence, Deep Learning and knowledge engineering

Enrollment Capacity: 20 Students
