Electrical Organizations
Nepal Engineering Council

It can be said that Nepal entered a modern phase in engineering after the political change in the sixties. Engineering activities began to contribute to the development of the country and the engineering profession started to gain respect in the society. The engineering community began to grow in number and was involved in all spheres of national development and engineers were allowed to compete in administrative service also for the post of secretary. Furthermore, the introduction of democracy in 1990 encouraged the growth of engineering colleges in Nepal abd the enrolment of students into these engineering colleges was rising very fast. Hence it was expected that nearlt 3000 engineers would be graduating from local engineering colleges every year with nearlty an equal amount graduating from colleges abroad. So, a need was felt for an organization to manage the engineering profession. Therefore, to make the engineering profession more effective, Nepal Engineering Council 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.). As per the Act, NEC has been vested with the statutory authority for the planning, coordinated development and monitoring of engineering profession and education in the country. NEC Act 2055 gives an outline on the formation of the Council, its tenture and the roles and responsibilities of the Chairman, Vice Chairman and the Registrar.

Society of Electrical Engineers Nepal (SEEN)

Society of Electrical Engineers Nepal (SEEN) is a collective group of Electrical Engineers from all over Nepal, with its history originating from the year 2019. With its 25 years of exposure and over 100 life members, SEEN is aggressively working towards a safer electrical scenario in Nepal.

Nepal Electricity Authority

Nepal Electricity Authority (NEA) was created on August 16, 1985 (Bhadra 1, 2042) under the Nepal Electricity Authority Act. 1984, through the merger of the Department of Electricity of Ministry of Water Resources, Nepal Electricity Corporation and related Development Boards.

To remedy the inherent weakness associated with these fragmented electricity organizations with overlapping and duplication of works, merger of this individual organisation became necessary to achieve efficiency and reliable service.

The primary objective of NEA is to generate, transmit and distribute adequate, reliable and affordable power by planning, constructing, operating and maintaining all generation, transmission and distribution facilities in Nepal's power system both interconnected and isolated.

In addition to achieving above primary objective, NEA's major responsibilities are:

a. To recommend to Government of Nepal, long and short- term plans and policies in the power sector.

b. To recommend, determine and realize tariff structure for electricity consumption with prior approval of Government of Nepal.

c. To arrange for training and study so as to produce skilled manpower in generation, transmission, distribution and other sectors.

Management of NEA is entrusted to a Board of Directors which is constituted as follows:

1. Honorable Minister, Ministry of Energy  : Chairman

2. Secretary, Ministry of Energy GoN : Member

3. Secretary, Ministry of Finance GoN : Member

4. One prominent person from commerce, industry, or financial sector : Member

5. One person from consumers group : Member

6. Two prominent persons with experience in power sector from outside government : Member

7. Managing Director, NEA : Member Secretary

The Managing Director acts as member secretary as well as chief executive officer.

Nepal Engineers' Association (NEA)

Nepal Engineers’ Association (NEA) is an independent nonprofit organization of Nepalese engineers, registered under the Social Service Act of the Government of Nepal. It was established in 1962. Today, it represents 36,359 engineers, belonging to various engineering disciplines including architects, civil, electrical, mechanical, electronics etc. and coming from both the public and private sector economies. NEA is governed by an elected executive council of 25 members, led by the President of the association for a tenure of two years. NEA’s mandates include promoting fellowship goodwill and cooperation assistance among the Nepalese engineers, safeguarding their rights and interests and promoting the development of science and technology. Lately, NEA has established centers for Continuous Engineering Education (NEA CCEE) and the Business Incubation Center (NEA BIC) to address respectively the CPD requirements for professional enhancements and to promote entrepreneurship capabilities among the young engineers.

NEA facilitates and coordinates the professional activities of the independent subject-specific professional societies namely that of Agricultural Engineers (NSAE), Architects (SONA), Arbitrators (NEPA), Computer Engineers (ACEN), Electrical and Communication Engineers (SECEN), Electrical Engineers (SEEN), Irrigation Engineers (SIREN), Mechanical Engineers (SOMEN), Public Health Engineers (SOPHEN), Structural Engineers (SEANep), Technical Auditors (SOTAN), Regional & Urban Planners (RUPSON), Rural Development Engineers (SERDEN), Value Engineers (NVA) and Society of Consulting Engineers and Architectural Firms (SCAEF).

NEA has also been at the forefront of developing fellowship and goodwill with international engineering associations and institutions. Presently, NEA is a member of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) and was instrumental in the establishment of the Federation of Engineering Institute of South and Central Asia (FEISCA). NEA has recently joined the Asian Civil Engineering Coordinating Council (ACECC) and have functional bilateral relations with Institution of Engineers Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE-UK), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Japanese Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE) and the Korean Society of Civil Engineers (KSCE).

In the aftermath of the disastrous 7.8 magnitude earthquake of April 25, 2015, NEA had been instrumental in massive mobilization of around 3,500 engineers to conduct Rapid Visual Damage Assessment of more than 65,000 affected buildings free of cost. Through the partnership with the Government of Nepal, UNDP and other academic institutions and professional societies, the NEA CCEE has been contributing towards enhancing the professional skills of engineers for undertaking post-seismic assessment, repair, and strengthening of damaged buildings. NEA is also engaged in supporting the reconstruction efforts by engaging in mason training on earthquake-resistant construction and design competition for suitable model housing designs.
