In Nepal, endemic rural poverty, food insecurity and poor quality of rural life exist as outstanding development challenges. Inseparable relationship between agriculture and rural development demands that agriculture must be looked from a stand point of holistic rural development. Strong inter-linkages exist among technology, infrastructure and services, producing positive impacts to rural economy and quality of rural life. This has created demand for cadre of technical manpower who could apply the knowledge of engineering and technology in rural development. nec has started Bachelor program in Civil and Rural Engineering from 2008 which is an unique initiative in the country and in the region. The graduates in Civil and Rural Engineering are expected to serve in numerous government and development agencies working in the areas of rural infrastructure development, natural resources management, agro-industries and rural credit institutions, apart from conventional Civil Engineering projects.
