Life @ KEC

Exam Section

KEC has a centralized Examination Section that looks after all tests and examination within the college. Its main task is to program and organize examinations and to keep academic records of the students.

Assessment/Examinations

Periodical Tests/Unit Tests: Tests are conducted on a regular basis in the form of end-of-chapter tests and unit tests. Students have to appear for all these tests. Their scores add onto the final internal marking.

Progress Report

KEC regularly monitors its students individually. It prepares progress reports on the basis of alternate dat test (ADT), Assignments, Attendance and class Performance and distributes these to the parents; once during the middle of the semester and then again, at the end of the semester. The progress reports help students evaluate themselves personally and also help them grow.

International Unit

KEC has its own international unit for the conduction of various research efforts and project works that aim to motivate the students as well as the various faculties through the use of the very latest technology.

Research and Development

The Office of KEC Research and Publications (OKRP) was launched, with support from an enthusiastic team, on January 1, 2013. The main purpose of the OKRP is to encourage research and writing amongst the faculty and students of KEC. The office consists of a Research Advisor, various Research Coordinators and Editors.

It envisions exploring research-based educational practices through research, seminars and talks as well as through the continual publication of research journals. The office published its first official journal, the “KEC Journal of Science and Engineering” (KJSE) on July 6, 2013. This journal is a joint venture featuring the faculties of the various departments within the college i.e. the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering, the Department of Computer Engineering and the Department of Electrical Engineering. The primary objective of the journal is to support the extension and further development and dissemination of knowledge in the field of science and engineering for the benefit of academics. It also serves the purpose of encouraging and practicing enterprises based on Research and Development (R & D).

Yog and Discipline

KEC values discipline and expect so from its students. To instill discipline (physically, mentally, socially and spiritually) in them, we have started a compulsory yoga session which includes Asanas, Pranayama, Yog-Nidra and Meditation. For this we have a full-time yoga expert with us. We, the academicians in this college believes that physical fitness, steady mental health and emotional balance are fundamental essentials for students to their better careers. We impart these essentials in our students through regular yoga-classes. Our
experience in our own set up says that yoga has cultured positive thinking, the value of hard work and patience, along with good memory power amongst our students and faculties as well. Apart from these, yoga sessions have also helped our student improve their physical
health, doing away with problems like neck, back and waist pain, eye problems, insomnia and many others.

Notes of Gratitude from KEC Students Thankful for the College’s Provision of Regular Yoga Classes Zig Ziglar says, "People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing that's why we recommend it daily." Guidance and counselling unit in our college believes the same, recognizes our necessities and inspires us to focus in our aim. The continuous motivation this unit provides encourages us to keep working hard and be a person of good moral.

Yoga classes help a lot in the improvement of our personality, thoughts and changes our perspective about life. The value of prayer, meditation, mental and physical exercise is to be realized by every individual. And through yoga, we are provided with an environment to
enlighten our inner soul and freshen up our attitude, thoughts that boost up our spirit to work hard no matter what life brings up.
No success is possible without inspiration. In fact inspiration is all that matters. Without inspiration, there can be no diligence, no
confidence and no passion; thereby no success. My humble gratitude to guidance and counseling unit for their constant support and motivation that really makes our journey in KEC easier.

Health is intrinsic of life and steps to flatten miraculous imagination, which is very potent to get high attitude of society as well as world.
The regular practicing yoga with mediation contributes a lot of positive impact in human body and psychology. The eternity of yoga makes us creative, innovative, patient, determinacy, confident which leads us to achieve both physical and spiritual happiness.
In my experience- I have realized so many positive changes in my own life from yoga and meditation. It drives me towards good habits
and life style that empower my learning ability, diligent manner and co-operative attitude which triggered self actualization phenomena.
Therefore let’s instigate yoga to thrive our life in order to break rampant devastation of society; it might be antidote to create society through development, discipline and dynamic.

Microsoft Students Partners

For the past three years, Microsoft has been involved in various ways with the college and its students. It has been appointing Microsoft Student Partners (MSPs) in the college ever since its fist involvement. MSPs are the bridge between the college and Microsoft. Various trainings are organized on a regular basis, and these have proven beneficial to students.

The most significant contribution made by Microsoft to KEC directly is the distribution of Genuine Software for free. A majority of us do not care about the consequences that we may face by using pirated software and neither do we have enough finance to support all the genuine software that we use. This approach by Microsoft has allowed everyone to have their own genuine software, worth tens of thousands of rupees for free.

The introduction of a students’ technology club makes fellow students organize their events in the IT field. All the students—new, old, as well as the alumni—are entitled to a username through MSPs that help login to the main server for genuine keys of all Microsoft products. Besides distributing software and training, various other events are organized on a regular basis to help student understand the various technological changes going on in the world. Several national and international speakers regularly facilitate talk programs at our college.

Job Placement Services

KEC’s job placement service works as a bridge between the world of work and the economic environment. We help students make a successful transition from college to work.

Guidance and Counseling

This unit looks after the welfare of the students, collective as well as individual. KEC believes that the students at this level go through a lot of stresses, which requires correct and prompt addressing for overall efficiency on the part of the students involved. Thus this unit is established to address such situations and help students concentrate on studies. Moreover, Guidance & Counseling also looks over various aspect of the student through three different sub units.
i. Academic Counseling The Academic Counselor genuinely looks after the academic activities of the students, guiding them towards academic excellence.
ii. Physical Fitness Counseling The Yoga Guru or Yoga Counselor looks after the overall physical as well as mental fitness of the students.
iii. Psychological Counseling The Psychological Counselor particularly looks after those students who are finding it hard to cope with their education, or are depressed or frustrated with daily life. The counselor helps them with outmost care giving them the confidence to break through their problems. Most students encounter challenges beyond the scope of teachers’ awareness at some point during their study career. In experiencing such dilemmas, many students develop the adaptive coping skills that help them navigate life’s difficult experiences. Despite the natural coping ability that most students exhibit, their teachers can be ill-equipped to provide proper guidance and counseling in the way that students adapt, change and grow through the process of learning from outcomes and mistakes, thus this unit assess their outcomes in order to better guide their students.

Guidance and counseling holds a strong foothold in our day to day life.

  • It provides assistance to an individual in developing an insight, recognizing his/her strengths and weaknesses and finding out his/her interests.
  • It makes an individual capable of taking his/her own decisions keeping in mind his/her morals, family and society.
  • It helps an individual to understand himself and the world around him.
  • It helps an individual to become self directed person.
  • It helps an individual develop positive attitudes and values towards work and society at large.
  • It helps in the total development of an individual; both cognitively and affectively.

“After the completion of their high school education, students of Bachelors’ level find themselves in an open environment where they have to face complex problems such as stress, anxiety, frustration, difficulties in adjustment, low key esteem, and in more severe cases, depression, drugs addiction and ultimately the major problem that is suicide.

The Guidance & Counseling Unit at LEC looks over all these problems through personal and psychological mediums, and also by providing students the opportunity of physical development through yoga and meditation. The mission of this unit is to support the college in achieving academic goals by assisting students with personal challenges that interfere with their academic progress. Professional psychological confidential counseling and physical exercise and meditation through Yoga are made available to all students who are in need.

This Unit encourages students to focus on their overall developmental needs which may include academic, personal, physical, interpersonal or social growth.”

KECians Speak of the Benefits of Counselling

As a student of Kathmandu Engineering College, I would like to express the importance of the counseling for any student who are facing
problem. For me this counseling unit has played a great role to identify the reason of my problem and also help me to select the right track in order to carry out my aim. Therefore I would like to suggest for those students who are facing stress , frustration, pressure or any other psychological problem then we should knock the door of counseling section , it will help us to relief from our pain.

Shirish Bastakoti

Electronics and Communication department

I would like to express my experience as a student of Kathmandu Engineering college that most of the student, they get victim of stress, frustration and don’t get the right path to follow and make mistake while doing decision. I have lots of friends who are somehow affected by the problem and left this field and stay at home. But in my case I went to the counseling session and share my problem with the Mam. After sharing my problem I found myself very relief and somewhat I am enlightening and aware about my
situation which helps to make a decision. So in conclusion I would like request to visit Guidance and counseling unit and share the problems, it may helps you to stop quitting from the college. Hence a psychologist is not only need but essential to all the college.
