Advancing Innovation & Robotics Excellence
Robotics Association of Nepal (RAN) is the only national-level non-profit association that provides an outstanding platform for students and enthusiasts all over Nepal. RAN is established to promote, educate, explore, and compete in the field of robotics.
Our mission is to create platforms, partnerships, and possibilities to enable Nepali organizations and individuals to understand the implications of the science of mechanics, electronics, robotics, and coding and implement them to find solutions to everyday life problems. Our objective is to provide a problem-based learning environment where youths can explore solutions to automate and mechanize everyday processes and build effective and efficient systems that leads to better and dignified lives.
RAN has a team of 11 executive members, 10 RAN representatives from schools and 51 RAN members from engineering colleges. There is five chief posts as President, Vice-president, Secretary, Joint Secretary, Treasurer, and Research and Development Head.
RAN current organization team size: 51 members all over Nepal, 15 Full-time employees, 4 interns.[2019-2020]
A brief history of
A Brief History
Formation of Robotics Association Of Nepal was initiation taken from the final year undergraduate students from Kathford International College of Engineering and Management, Kathmandu Engineering College, Himalayan College of Engineering, Advanced College of Engineering and Management, Himalayan Institute of Science and Management, Kantipur City College along with other engineering colleges of various universities felt necessary of central hub for exploring, learning, promoting and sharing robotics knowledge to represent Nepal globally in 2009 through the help of technological innovations for skills development.
After six months of preparation, constitution was finalized and Robotics Association of Nepal was registered as not-for-profit non-governmental organization in 2010.
Since then we have been continuously code + hardware skills development of youngsters. So far 4000 students have already received trainings on robotics and automation. We initiated Yantra as National Robotics competition which is now Art,tech and science festival. As a post-earthquake campaign, we were able to trained 20 engineering students on solar technical and business aspect also enabling their training skills through local training for the youngsters/villagers in Nuwakot. We distributed more than 300 pieces of solar stations to the earthquake-affected peoples in collaboration of National and international organization.
