Nepal Engineering Council Implements Examination Requirement for Engineers to Practice Professionally: 565 Students Pass in Engineer License Examination

The Nepal Engineering Council conducted its first-ever engineer license examination on March 26-27, 2023. The Engineering Council has announced that out of 1981 students who participated in the exam, only 565 have passed.

Categories and Pass Percentage

The exam was held in 20 different categories related to engineering, with civil engineering having the highest number of candidates at 1153. The pass percentage for the examination is just over 28.5 percent, with a required minimum score of 50 percent to pass.

Requirement for Professional Engineers

According to President Padam Sahi, the exam has been introduced to ensure that professional engineers in Nepal are registered with the Engineering Council. He explained that anyone who fails to pass the examination will not be eligible to receive the council's certificate and will not be able to work as an engineer in Nepal.

Changes in the Engineering Council's Examination Process

Previously, the Nepal Engineering Council did not require an examination for engineers to work in the country. Instead, they relied on an engineering pass certificate from a university. However, with the new rule in place, engineers must pass the council exam and receive permission to work in any engineering-related business in Nepal.

Implications for Future Engineers

This new system of licensing and registration will have significant implications for future engineers in Nepal. Those who wish to work in the profession will have to pass the council's examination and register with the Engineering Council to practice as professional engineers in the country.
