A professional engineer is competent by virtue of his/her fundamental education and training to apply the scientific method and outlook to the analysis and solution of engineering problems. He/she is able to assume personal responsibility for the development and application of engineering science and knowledge, notably in research, design, construction, manufacturing, superintending, and managing and in the education of the engineer. His/her work is predominantly intellectual and varied and not of a routine mental or physical character. It requires the exercise of original thought and judgment and the ability to supervise the technical and administrative work of others.
Nepal Engineering Council, an apex nation body, regulates the engineering profession and ensures the responsibility to put engineering application more scientifically, professionally and practically to work for the advancement of engineering profession in various disciplines.NEC holds the responsibility to grant approval for starting new technical institution and for introduction of new courses or programs in consolation with the agencies concerned. To meet obligation, NEC has developed Norms and Standards for Engineering Institutions running Bachelor programs which is periodically updated making it more effective. NEC has also recently approved Norms and Standards for Post- Graduate Engineering Programs. As per Nepal Engineering Council Act 1998, Nepali and Non-Nepali Engineers working with Government, Diplomatic Missions, semi Government, Private Sectors, NGOs ,INGOs, Bilateral and Multilateral Agencies, Research and Academic Institutions, Consultants, Contractors etc., are required to get registered in the Council and are obliged to abide by its professional Code of Conduct. With the increasing number of engineers from various disciplines, Nepal Engineering Council has stepped into 22nd year of its establishment. I am really honored to be a part and to put few words in this Twelfth publication of NEC.
As an engineer myself, being aware of the aspiration of each students, parents, nation and society at large, I am extending my focused efforts in bringing out best possible to enhance the capacity and capability of our service. I wish all the best to all engineers and wish them a memorable, meaningful and rewarding career and emerge as a world class engineers.
