Cons of studying Software Engineering over CE and CSIT

Here are some disadvantages of studying Software engineering over CE and CSIT –

  • TU vs PU . The foremost point is that Software engineering is only taught under Pokhara University whereas Computer Engineering and CSIT is taught under Tribhuvan University. So if you are highly concerned about the rank of university ,then you have to choose CSIT or Computer Engineering . Because TU has a very good rank in global market than any other universities of Nepal.
  • You can’t change your mind . The main focus of software engineering is on software development ,like designing and developing software . So if later on if you want to move onto other fields of IT then that may create problem for you. So if you want to study it then you must have a very good urge /interest to study it . You just cant say -” I will figure out on the way”.
  • You are limited. As we know Software engineering is just a part of Computer Science .SE teaches only the limited portion of computer science . So here the focus is just on specification rather than generalization .
  • Inconsistency of PU –Also we hear the delay and inconsistency in exam and result of Pokhara University time and again . For this you have to genuinely ask the seniors of pokhara university about this . You can also ask the college professional for this .
  • Web vs software . If you has only some basics about web technology . So later on if you want to shift into web then your 4 years degree won’t be much fruitful. Software engineering is more biased on software and stuffs.
  • Costly- Fee structure of NCIT is pretty high . Since Pokhara University has affordable fees but everyone can’t be native of pokhara . So even if try to study from Pokhara going out of the valley then your total cost of staying and studying there will add up to the cost of studying at NCIT.
