Message from the Principal

Rameshwar Rijal

It gives me immense pleasure in commemorating twenty-one successful years imparting quality education through Kantipur Engineering College. We have come a long way contributing in the field of engineering. Our college has been one of the most prominent engineering institutions in Nepal that nurtures creativity and innovation at the state-of- the-art infrastructure. Apart from its diligent human resources, we take equal pride in the location of the premises that is aesthetically unparalleled.

In ever growing and challenging world of technology, KEC provides platform to hone skills and broaden knowledge for young enthusiasts who turn into professionals excelling in various engineering disciplines. Participation is the key to evaluation and therefore, we  have our international linkages with more than 50 universities in Asia and Europe.

Moreover, European Union funded projects including cLink, eLINK, FUSION, SmartLink, and SUNSpaCe have played a great role for both students and teachers in gaining international exposure. Our students have not only succeeded nationally, but have made us proud by showcasing their talent in global arena like Imagine Cup World Finals in Seattle, USA. And recently, KEC conference was successfully organized by the college to encourage students and teaching faculty from all over the world.

I would like to extend an open arm to welcome all the new students in KEC family. The hard work and diligence put forth by dedicated professionals will certainly help carve a better future for all the students. We focus on each student need and requirement along with his or her parent involvement in attaining the desired academic results. So, I encourage aspiring students to venture out on an academic journey at KEC and ensure a better future.
