Engineers play an important role in pushing the boundaries of applied science and solving technical problems. This allows different real life sectors to reach newer heights. It’s usually at the forefront of new ideas and helps shape society’s future. The scope of engineering has also claimed to be a successful career option in Nepal like in other countries.
There are many universities in Nepal offering the courses regarding engineering field. Some are Tribhuwan University, Kathmandu University, Pokhara University, Purwanchal University, and so on. Among them, Tribhuwan University stands as the oldest, yet most renowned one in the context of Nepal. There are many government and private colleges Engineering is the one and only community based engineering college in Nepal. Being a community based college, it has thrived to provide quality education at very affordable prices, for every economical ground.
