NCIT is one of the top colleges in Technology in Nepal. The College is also an authorized training partner of CISCO, Red Hat, and Microsoft.

Need for NEXT

NCIT being one of the top technical colleges in Nepal has not organized any remarkable events. Also Every year the third Saturday of September, (Nepal Open Source Klub) NOSK used to organize a day event called Software Freedom Day (SFD). NOSK is a group of students who believe in open source. This event was first organized in 2004, 28th August. Since 2006 Software Freedom Day has been held on the third Saturday of September. But this event was not organized in 2018. Check Software Freedom Day 2017, NOSK NCIT. SFD is an international event organized worldwide, ie. not the event of college itself. Which leads to organize an event within the college and here is NEXT.
