Over 6,000 engineering graduates in Nepal have registered for the upcoming license examination, which is scheduled to take place in November taken by the Nepal Engineering Council. This represents a significant increase in the number of applicants compared to previous years and reflects the growing demand for licensed engineers in the country.
Nepal Engineering Council:
The Nepal Engineering Council is the sole authority responsible for licensing engineers in Nepal. To obtain a license, engineers must pass a challenging examination that covers a wide range of engineering topics. The examination is offered twice a year, and the pass rate is typically around 30%.
The upcoming examination will be the third written examination conducted by the council since it introduced the licensing process in 2022. This year, the council has introduced a number of changes to the examination format, including:
- A 50% pass mark, meaning candidates must score at least 50 out of 100 marks to be successful
- An entirely objective examination format, consisting of multiple-choice and true/false questions
These changes are intended to make the examination process more fair and transparent and to ensure that only qualified engineers are granted licenses.
Shivamangal Giri, the Council Registrar, emphasized the importance of adequate preparation for the examination. He also highlighted the council’s commitment to ensuring the quality of the engineering profession in Nepal.
Good luck to all the aspiring engineers who will be taking the upcoming license examination! –GURUBAA
