Engineering education plays a pivotal role in shaping the future workforce and technological advancements of a nation. With the ever-evolving landscape of technology and industry demands, the regulation of engineering curriculum becomes essential to ensure relevance, quality, and alignment with national educational objectives. The implementation of national education policies and the advancement of societal goals foster the innovation, inclusivity, and competency among graduates.

National education policies serve as the guiding framework, setting overarching goals and objectives for engineering education aligned with broader societal needs and economic development agendas. These policies provide the foundation upon which regulatory bodies and academic institutions formulate curricular guidelines and standards.
