INTRODUCTION

Central Campus of Technology (CCT), a constituent campus of Tribhuvan University, inherits its present name and form from the erstwhile Institute of Applied Science and Technology (IASTech.) established in Dharan in 1972. 

At present, the campus runs very diverse programs in science and technology, viz.: 

  • B.Sc. Biology Group (Botany, Chemistry, Microbiology, Geology and Zoology)
  • B.Sc. (Geology major).
  • B.Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics
  • B. Tech. (Food)
  • M.Sc. Microbiology
  • M.Tech. (Food)
  • Ph.D. Programs (Food). 

Upcoming programs

  • M. Sc. Nutrition and Dietetics
  • M. Sc. Industrial Chemistry

At present, CCT is the only campus in Nepal where Master’s Degree and Ph.D. in Food Technology are offered. For more detail on the various programs listed above, visit ACADEMICS.

VISION

Central Campus of Technology is the forerunner of food technology education in Nepal. To date, the campus has produced some 500 highly competent food technology graduates. Annually, nearly 25 percent of them go abroad for further studies, 10 percent of them find Government jobs and the rest go like hot cakes in various food industries of Nepal and abroad. The scope of food technology education in Nepal has increased dramatically in the past few years. As of 2014, there are 11 academic institutions where food technology education is offered. In the light of recent trend in food technology education in Nepal, to further broaden its scope, Central Campus of Technology has prepared a new vision statement:

Central Campus of Technology will strive to transition into Deemed University of Food Science and Technology, making it one of finest research stations for post-harvest technology of the SAARC Region.

MISSION

It is beyond dispute that there is nothing as indispensable as food for all life forms on earth. In the recent time, however, food crisis has risen to the state of emergency in many developing countries. Food insecurity is pervasive throughout much of Nepal. 

Every time food crisis occurs, we have to depend on donors for the supply, which is a humiliating situation for a resource-rich country like Nepal. Emergency food supplies by donor agencies and even plain import can never be a permanent solution. It will only enslave our economy. The reasons behind food insecurity in Nepal and the available options for combating it hardly need elaboration. Food insecurity may result from failed harvest, poor distribution, post harvest loss, poor access (physical and nutritional), and so forth. National Planners are preoccupied with increasing productivity (pre-harvest). Scientists work day in, day out developing improved crop varieties, increasing productivity, and devising better farming systems, with the hope to combat food insecurity. Even 2-3% increase in yield is hailed a success. What they fail to understand is that a good 50% of fruits and vegetables and 20% of cereal grains painstakingly researched and produced are lost due to lack of post-harvest knowledge. This is where food technology comes in and combats food insecurity. Control of post-harvest loss, be it by a few percent, can be worth food security for millions of people.

Thus, the mission of Central Campus of Technology is:

To strengthen research facilities and develop post-harvest technology & allied programs to the point where Central Campus of Technology can be deemed a university in its own right. 

For realizing the stated vision and accomplishing the mission, Central Campus has set following objectives:

GOALS

  1. Fully deploy the privileges of autonomy
  2. Mobilize resources for developing infrastructure
  3. Prepare strategic plan for sustainability of all future programs
  4. Strengthen research facilities
  5. Run advanced academic programs in science and technology

OBJECTIVES OF DIFFERENT PROGRAMS

The objectives carried by the institute during its establishment (1973) may not have relevance at this point because the institute was mutilated at an embryonic stage. At present, programs of diverse natures are being run in this campus. Hence it would be appropriate to state the objectives carried by each program.

Objectives of B. Sc. Programs

  1. To upgrade the quality of the B. Sc. program so that T.U. science graduates can compete academically with the graduates from other Asian countries
  2. To broaden the intellectual horizon of the students
  3. To make the B. Sc. program more practical and relevant to the professional needs of national development, and
  4. To provide the students with in-depth knowledge in the area of specialization

Objectives of B. Tech. Food Technology Program

  1. To provide knowledge in food science and the principles underlying food processing
  2. To give wider knowledge to students in advanced food engineering
  3. To acquaint students with industrial management practices, and
  4. To train the students in product specific specialization areas.

Objectives of M. Tech. Food Technology Program

  1. To provide the students advanced knowledge in food science and the principles underlying food processing technology
  2. To give wider knowledge to students in advanced food engineering including computerized process control and plant automation
  3. To acquaint students with the recent industrial management practices including quality management
  4. To train the students in product specific specialization areas
  5. To develop research skill in students to make them capable of carrying out research work independently
  6. To provide students competitive knowledge in food technology, comparable to foreign universities.

Objectives of B. Sc. in Nutrition & Dietetics

There is prevalence of malnutrition in most of the developing countries, including Nepal. It is the responsibility of the nation to combat it. In this regard, National Planning Commission prioritized a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics (B.Sc.ND) to address this problem in 2006. As such, the field of nutrition and dietetics is dedicated to protecting health and saving lives by deploying knowledge and expertise in the field. Hence, objectives of the program are: 

  1. To produce graduates with recognized clinical, public health and management skills. 
  2. To produce graduates competent enough to work as nutritionist and dietitian in the hospital setting and other specialized areas such as community and public health, and food industry sector.

LOCATION AND CAMPUS SITE

The campus is situated on an isolated and quiet knoll called "Hattisar" (altitude 428 meter) on the lap of spectacular Bijaypur hill north-east to Dharan, a magnificent and well-off city in the East of Nepal.  It is in Ward No. 14 of Dharan Municipality. The campus premise spreads over an area of about 19 ½ bighas (9.2 ha) of lush vegetation (26° 49' 08" N- 26° 49' 25" N and 87° 17' 13" E - 87° 17' 24" E). It is easily reachable from the main town by auto-rickshaw (it costs around NRs 150, as of 2014, for a 10-min ride). One may also prefer to go on foot, in which case a shortcut trail may be used (it normally takes about 20 min from Bhanuchowk). See the map provided also.

BRIEF HISTORY OF CCT

After the education system came into being in Nepal in 1971 (2028 B.S.), all the higher education centers scattered all over the country were unified under the umbrella of Tribhuvan University. Subsequently, Institute of Applied Science and Technology (IASTEC) was established in 1972 in Dharan, which became the forerunner of Food Technology program in Nepal. This was the turning point of Food Technology education in Nepal.

Early institutional objectives

The institute had explicit institutional objectives and program outlines. The four major outlines of the program were: 

  1. Research and Innovation – for the exploitation of local resources;
  2. Documentation and Information – for documenting and compiling materials on science and technology, development/establishment science and technology museum;
  3. Instrumentation – for development,  repair/maintenance, enlisting of scientific equipment; and
  4. Academic program – for production of skilled manpower needed for value-adding agricultural produce

Early academic programs

The academic program included 4 relevant technologies, viz.,

  1. Laboratory Technology
  2. Food Technology
  3. Fat/oil and Soap Technology
  4. Environment Technology

The program also included short term courses for following industries: (i) sugar, (ii) cigarette, (iii) cement and lime, (iv) jute, (v) wood, (vi) chemical fertilizer, (vii) textile, (viii) rosin and turpentine, (ix) paper and pulp, (x) chemical, and (xi) dairy. 

Of the above proposed academic programs, however, only Food Technology and Laboratory Technology programs were run in this institute. These programs consisted of semester-based, two-year certificate level courses (I. Tech.) in Food Technology and Laboratory Technology. The objective of these courses was to produce middle-level technical manpower that the country badly needed. Because of the self-terminating nature of these programs, these were formally closed in 1977, after producing 79 and 87 graduates in Food Technology and Laboratory Technology, respectively.

The making of the Institute of Science and Technology

The establishment of an institute with such unique and novel features was a milestone in itself. Late Dr. Parasar Narayan Suwal was appointed as the first Dean of the institute and given the responsibility for doing all the needful. Well-wishers and education activists from Biratnagar offered to provide the land required for the establishment of the institute (near the old airport) but Dr. Suwal preferred Dharan because of its salubrious climate and vantage reasons. Education activists and well-wishers, notably, Mr. Chandra Shekhar Shrestha, Mr. Surya Prasad Upadhyaya, and Late Subba Bir Bahadur Maskey were a great source of inspiration and their benevolent deeds have secured them a place in the annals of this campus. With special initiatives from the then Minister for Education Late Hiralal Vishwakarma, certificate level courses in Food Technology and Laboratory Technology were started from 2073 (Shrawan 1, 2030 B.S.).

Since the institute did not have its own building at the time, Mr. Yagya Prasad’s house (at Dharan -16, currently turned into a private run high school) was rented with effect from July 1, 1973.

The institute was separated into two units, namely, (i) Dean’s Office, and (ii) Central Campus. Central Campus was devolved the responsibility to carry out academic activities and had Asst. Dean as the main organ. Dean’s Office did the job of supervision, inspection, and monitoring of academic activities. Since Dean’s Office did not have its own building then, it began its operation from Tara Devi Shrestha and Jhuma Dhimal’s building situated in Dharan-4.

The first intake of students for the academic program consisted of 50 students each in Food Technology and Laboratory Technology. Students were selected based on the entrance exam. The successful students received a handsome stipend of NRs 200 per month.

During those days, the academic and administrative works were carried out from 6:30 A.M. to 10:30 A.M. A timing of 12:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. was also practiced as a trial. All the staffs worked, played, and lived in perfect harmony. Litter wonder, then, the Dean would himself occasionally invite all the staffs for dinner.

Of course, time was difficult then, particularly as regards availability of appropriate faculty. Nagged by this concern, the then Dean Dr. Suwal appointed Mr. Dev Bhakta Shakya as a Lecturer for Food Technology and Mr. Tilak Man Shrestha as a Lecturer for Laboratory Technology in 1974.

During 1975, with the initiation of Dr. Suwal the institute acquired about about 9.2 ha (19 bigha, 10 kattha, ½ dhoor) of land at Hattisar. Mr Bir Bahadur Shrestha and Mr Padam Nar Sigh Shrestha (the then President of Ward No. 14) lent invaluable help in the process. Mr. Birendra Bahadur Shahi, the then Zonal Chief of Koshi zone took keen interest and lent the much needed help in overcoming the official red tape in the acquisition process. Immediately after the acquisition of the land, 10 wooden sheds were built for temporarily running the classes. Mr. Brihaspati Prasain’s house (Ward No. 1, near the present water storage tank) was taken in rent and Dean’s Office set up. Thereafter, Tribhuvan University spent NRs 3.6 million from its own resources to build one laboratory building, one guest house, six B-type quarters, and twelve C-Type quarters. These building were built by Araniko Construction Company, Kathmandu in accordance with United Designers Consultancy’s building construction project. The construction work came to end in 1977.

The demise of the Institute

Soon after the new buildings were constructed, much to the dismay of all concerned, the whole thing took an ugly turn, putting an end to all the fervor and zeal of the establishment. The institute was broken down into Dharan Campus and RECAST (Research Center for Applied Science and Technology). RECAST was taken away to Kathmandu while the academic program, after relegating it into mere constituent campus of Tribhuvan University (under the faculty of science and technology) continued to run in Dharan. 

In 1977, certificate level programs in Food Technology and Laboratory Technology were announced formally terminated by the then Minister for Education Mr. Pashupati Shamser Rana, thereby apparently sealing the fate of food technology education. A certificate level program in pure science was then started instead of the technology program.

Hopeful days

In 1979, with the concerted effort of both teachers and administrative staffs, B. Tech. level in Food Technology (which is running to this day), the first of its kind in Nepal, came into being. This was another turning point in the history of Food Technology education in Nepal. Since then, the campus has undergone several transformations to evolve into its present form.

No looking back

In 1987, during Late King Birendra’s visit to the Eastern Development Region, the then Campus Chief Mr. Jagat Bahadur KC apprised the king of the importance of Food Technology education and requested him for a separate institute (see Gallery for King Birendra’s vist to CCT). Acknowledging the gravity of the matter, the king issued a directive to the concerned to do the needful. Thus, this campus got back a part of what it rightly deserved, some fourteen years later! There has been no looking back since then. The campus obtained the status of Central Campus of Technology, with a provision for Assistant Dean. In 1997 a Bachelor program in Microbiology was added (still running). Bringing this program was another milestone. Teachers, students, academic staffs and education activists of Dharan had to exercise a lot in realizing it. The role of Dharan Municipality will ever be remembered. It provided the much needed financial aid to survive the initial crisis.

On February 15, 1999, the campus underwent decentralization system, thereby obtaining partial autonomy. The campus began to run through Campus Management and Development Committee (CMDC), the apex body at the campus management level. It consisted of 14 members representing stakeholders from all walks of life.

Eventually in 2001 Central Department of Food Technology was established for running M.Tech. and Ph.D. programs in Food Technology whereupon Master Level in Food Technology was started in 2002. After the establishment of Central Department, it also started Ph. D. programs. A snapshot of the timeline of development and future prospects of CCT is given below:

Cafeteria / Canteen

There are two cafeterias in the campus premises, only one of which is in operation at the moment. The one that is in operation is in a vantage point, overlooking the football ground. In other words, you can enjoy watching games between your sips of hot tea. See Campus location for bird’s eye view of the cafeteria/canteen and Gallery for the picture.

You can buy meals, snacks, cold drinks and tea at nominal prices (fixed through agreement with the campus). Selling of addictive items like tobacco, cigarettes and alcoholic beverages is strictly prohibited.

Museum

The museum at CCT has an interesting history. In short, in the early days of campus establishment, under the earnest initiation of teachers and campus administrations, a small museum was established in one of the rooms of the laboratory building. The specimens consisted of many biological specimens from the surrounding areas and villages. Rare specimens such as abnormal birth of man, animals and plants (and their parts) were collected and preserved. These specimens are still well preserved.  Students, faculties and local people still continue to enrich the museum: they bring the specimen to the museum as soon as they feel that it is rare, exotic, abnormal, or in some way extraordinary. Over time the accession has grown to a nearly unmanageable extent. More than seven thousand visitors visit the museum each year. Most of the visitors are High School and Plus Two School students from Dharan, Dhankuta, Morang, Ilam, Panchathar and Tehrathum. Realizing the ever-growing importance of the museum, we are currently going through some preparatory works to upgrade and develop this museum. See Gallery for the photographs of museum hall and rare specimens.

ACADEMIC DEPARTMENTS AT CCT

At present, there are 9 Departments, including Central Department of Food Technology (CDFT), for the management of these programs. Campus chief is the head of the academic programs that deal with Bachelor levels. Master's Degree and Ph. D. programs in Food Technology are administered by CDFT. Other Master’s degree programs are administered by the respective Central Departments: campus/college units have a sub-department, and is generally administered by Program Coordinators instead of Chairpersons. See Academic structure for the organization of academic program. Below is given the list of Departments, sub-Department and the current Chairperson (as of 2014). The list also includes Student Welfare Department.

  1. Department of Food Technology
  2. Department of Food Quality Control
  3. Department of Nutrition & Dietetics
  4. Department of Compulsory Subjects
  5. Department of Biology
  6. Department of Physics
  7. Department of Chemistry
  8. Department of Microbiology
  9. Central Department of Food Technology (CDFT)
  10. Sub-Department (M. Sc. Microbiology)
  11. Students Welfare Department

Functions / Roles of Departments

The functions/roles of Departments and Central Department in the academic programs are explicitly defined and documented. The department is headed by a Chairman, usually referred to as HOD (Head of the Department). The Department chiefs, unless under special circumstances, have a 3-year tenure. The HOD of the Central Department, however, has a 4-year tenure.

The Department prepares time tables / class routines for relevant subjects every academic session and distributes the workload between the faculties. Very often, a joint meeting of different committees is essential to sort out/resolve common problems and work out the routine for regular classes, practical exams, and dissertation. The chairman of the Department monitors day-to-day progress of the course and supervises his/her member faculties for effective delivery of class lectures.
