Message from the Principal
Welcome to Nepal Engineering College (nec), the finest and most dynamic academic institute offering undergraduate and graduate engineering and architecture programs in Nepal.
The fresh students enrolled at nec will find a team of highly qualified and fully dedicated teachers with many years of teaching experience, supported by an equally enthusiastic team of administrative and management staff. The quiet environment at nec, away from the hustle and bustle of a city center, is ideal for the students to get focused on study and extracurricular activities. The high performance of nec graduates is a testament in itself regarding the quality of education at this college; every year dozens of nec graduates are selec ted for higher education with full scholarship at reputed universities around the globe. There are plenty of open spaces in and around the college premises for those who enjoy fresh air and sportsmanship. The students of this college have been awarded numerous honors and awards at almost all national competitions for engineering and architecture students.
nec is about to complete its 25 years of successful operation and has produced world-class technocrats serving in academic, industrial, and research institutes in and outside Nepal. The graduates of neccan be found serving different organizations in all the highly industrialized countries in the world. The students from all 77 districts of Nepal have enrolled at this college.
I have witnessed the vicissitudes at this great institute in the last 25 years. The rapid expansion of the physical infrastructure and student numbers in the late 1990s was followed by an extremely challenging decline in student interest in engineering in 2002-2005. Yet, nec continued to thrive, often providing a critical and leading role in driving the higher technical education in Nepal; most of the engineering and architecture curriculum of Pokhara University originated at nec.
For quality in technical education, nec is considered a standard in itself, and as such a brand for aspiring institutes in Nepal. Based on the experience of about 10000 nec graduates, I am sure you will thank yourself for choosing nec for your higher study.
