Khwopa College of Engineering

Khwopa College of Engineering

KCE is Nepal’s community-based engineering college, undertaken by Bhaktapur Municipality. KCE will, in every regard, be the right destination for those who aspire to become professional engineers at affordable fees.

With a distant vision of maintaining Bhaktapur's hardwon glory, the college aims to produce highly skilled engineers that will have blends of both indigenous and modern-day technologies. In this regard, the college is aiming to provide quality education in the engineering fields which are of prime importance for the development of our country.
