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.

The classroom building has an assembly hall that can accommodate 300 people. It has been put to a multitude of uses since its construction.

At the moment, Nepal electricity Authority (NEA) is the sole source of electricity. Because of the chronic shortage and frequent outages of electricity supply from NEA, the campus is trying to find some alternatives. It is planning to add a 22 KVA diesel plant to the existing small-capacity machine for emergency needs in the laboratories and pilot plants. For official use, it has already installed hybrid solar panel set. It is also planning to install similar renewable power supply for Research & Management Cell (RMC) and Library, adequate enough to run at least 20 PCs and some electronic equipment during the day time.
