Message of Chair-Person, Campus Management Committee, Prof. Pashupati Mishra

Dear Students, Parents, and Well Wishers! On behalf of Campus Management Committee, I welcome you all in Central Campus of Technology (CCT), Hattisar, Dharan. Located at the foothills of Bijayapur Height, it is surrounded by peaceful and serene environment which is suitable for learning and research.Nepal is a country based on agro-economy. More than 67% of its population depends on agriculture.The geographical diversity of the nation provides favorable condition for diverse food products. 


The Tarai region is suitable for grain products like paddy, wheat and corn.  Similarly, the hilly region is suitable for fruits and vegetables, along with the grain products. Likewise, the topography of the Himalayan region suits for the herbal medicinal plants. But, due to the lack of technically skilled man power, Nepal is yet unable to provide food security to its citizens. Thus, to explore and make the maximum utilization of its diverse food products by producing qualified and technically equipped human resource CCT was established in 2028 B.S.

Ever since its establishment, CCT has been continuously working to broaden its visions, missions and goals. It has been devoted to provide students world class, quality education in science and technology to make them capable of facing challenges of modern world. At present it runs bachelor and masters programs in food technology, nutrition & dietetics, microbiology and physics. In addition, it runs Ph. D. program in food technology. This institution has been recognized for its quality education both in nation and abroad. We are proud that there is a high demand of our graduates within the nation and abroad.

 Nonetheless, today’s graduates have to compete in the rapidly changing world. We are aware that it is not enough covering the curriculum.
