British Embassy Kathmandu and RAP3 MHLR Project would like to congratulate all qualified engineers’ and especially Dr. Er. Thusitha Chandani Shahi who is the first woman to earn the PEng (Nepal) title. We hope that the number of female engineers with the title of PEng. will increase in the coming years.
The PEng title was first launched in 2018 where 13 experienced engineers of Nepal were awarded this title in recognition of their achievements having demonstrated their engineering skills through their work. NEC with support from UK aid funded RAP3 MHLR has played a vital role in introducing the Professional Engineer title for the first time in Nepal to establish and maintain professional standards for engineering careers and provide long term benefits for engineers being recognised and competitive internationally.
