Ncell conferred the scholarship and excellence awards in five faculties- Civil, Electrical, Electronics and Communication, Computer, and Mechanical Engineering.

Not only financially but this momentous recognition will inspire everyone to continue doing what they do best. I also take this opportunity to thank the IoE for their relentless efforts put forth by the team for developing and shaping the talents for the future of our society,” he added.
Prof. Dr. Shashidhar R Joshi expresses delight
Dean of IOE Prof. Dr. Shashidhar R Joshi, “I want to take a moment to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of our students, who have not only excelled in their studies but have also made a mark on the global stage. It’s heartening to hear the success stories of our alumni who are contributing to the world in many significant ways.
“As we celebrate the success of our students, I’m reminded of the transformative power of education and the immense potential each one of you holds. I firmly believe that your destiny lies in your passion and the pursuit of your dreams, whether it be as an entrepreneur, a professor, or in any other role that brings you joy and fulfillment. To the recipients of the Ncell Award, congratulations! I am immensely proud of your achievements. I am extremely grateful to Ncell for their support to our students for the past decade,” he added.
Ncell offered a token of love for its support
On the same occasion, Prof. Dr. Joshi also felicitated Ncell with a token of appreciation for providing generous support on building excellence through Ncell Scholarships and Excellence Awards to students for 10 consecutive years at Pulchowk Campus.
Bibek Khanal who received the Ncell Scholarships twice previously, and the Ncell Excellence Awards this year for graduating as the topper student in Bachelor of Electrical Engineering expressed his enthusiasm. He said, “This award is the result of my hard work and academic excellence. This is a financial support but what is more important is that this is indeed a great recognition that motivates students to do much better. I thank you Ncell and IOE for this collaboration.”
“It’s great that Ncell has contributed to the education sector. I feel proud to receive this recognition, which was always one of the major motivating factors for me. Being a student, we do not have that financial liberty from family, and this scholarship amount can also be utilized for investment to help for further education so thank you Ncell,” said Benzeena Dhakal from the Mechanical Engineering faculty of Pulchowk Campus, one of the Ncell Scholarships recipients.
The Ncell scholarships and excellence awards started in 2014. The objective of the program is to encourage technical education and honor the best talents.
