Engineering in Pokhara

A decade back I was searching for the higher education in Pokhara, one of the beautiful and developing city of Nepal.I searched for the fields like medical,management and Engineering.Talking about Engineering, to be surprised or by my luck I came to know about three engineering colleges (at that time use of internet in Pokhara was very rare and most of people were using dial-up connection,strange !!!!!).

The first one is Western Regional Campus or Paschimanchal Campus commonly known as WRC. It is affiliated to Tribhuvan University.The WRC campus became operational in 1987 with the vision to provide diploma courses.Now the campus offers Bachelor’s Degree program in civil engineering, electronics, Computer, Mechanical, Geomatics and electrical engineering.It is one of the reputed campus in Nepal and students from various parts of the country come to achieve their higher education.
