It’s my pleasure to write a message to Kathmandu Engineering College (KEC), an affiliated college of Institute of Engineering, Tribhuvan University.
Higher education plays a key role in economic and social development of the country. Now it has even greater role as knowledge producers and in assisting countries to become knowledge economies. I believe, knowledge is not natural resources, instead now it has become a key factor in determining a country’s global competitiveness. The country desperately needs a strong higher technical education to assist in its rapid development and it needs to produce, seek and adapt knowledge to overcome its developmental challenges through engineering education.
The Institute of Engineering (IOE) being the centre of excellence for engineering education in Nepal; it has greater role to achieve its goal and provide excellent manpower to the nation. This can be possible only by setting a mission of quality engineering education in the frontier engineering areas relevant primarily to nation thereby enhancing national development process. In this connection, IOE along with its affiliated colleges can contribute on nation building by providing qualified technical manpower within our country. For all this I believe, Kathmandu Engineering College is dedicated to lineup with the vision and mission of IOE, contributing to the national development process.
I wish a great success to KEC in its endeavors in the direction of succeed.
