Engineering, much like other science, is a broad discipline that has further several sub-disciplines such as Mechanical, Civil, Computer, Software, and so on. The different sub-discipline covers different respective areas. Engineers are the infrastructure builders of the Nation. A developing Country like Nepal definitely needs a lot of qualified and skillful engineers. Engineers of any sub-discipline must get registered with NEC to work in their respective fields. NEC was formed under the Nepal Engineering Council Act, 2055, promulgated by His Majesty the King on B.S. 2055/11/27 (11th March 1999 A.D.). to ensure the proper functioning of engineering education and profession. It is currently headed by Chairman Er. Satya Narayan Shah. Nepal engineering council registration is in three categories as General Registered Engineers, Professional Engineers, and Non-Nepali Engineers.

Basically, the objective of the Nepal Engineering Council is to make the engineering profession effective by imposing proper systems and regulations. Further, NEC also provides registration certificates to engineers as per their qualifications. NEC prepares policies and plans for the effective engineering profession. NEC also inspects and controls engineering education to produce globally competent engineers. It provides licensing and permission to engineering institutions. It is not only concerned with registration but can only seize the license of a registered engineer under any unethical activities.
