Higher education plays a key role in the economic and social development of Nepal. I believe that knowledge is the key factor in determining a country’s global competitiveness. The country desperately needs skilled engineers to assist in developing its infrastructure and resources.
The Institute of Engineering (IOE) is the centre of excellence for engineering education in Nepal that has set a goal to provide skilled manpower to the nation. The goal is achievable only by setting a mission of quality engineering education areas relevant primarily to the nation; thereby enhancing the national development process. IOE along with its affiliated colleges can contribute to this goal by providing qualified technical manpower. Kathmandu Engineering College (KEC) is dedicated to this mission of the IOE and I believe that KEC’s graduates will contribute immensely to
the development of the nation.
