I am delighted to announce the first (inaugural) issue of the academic journal as the Journal of Engineering and Sciences (JES) with ISSN 2976-1190 (Online). This work is due to the continuous efforts and outcomes of the Research Management Unit (RMU), Pashchimanchal Campus, where we have been involved for about a decade. The JES is a multidisciplinary engineering and scientific publication where experts can share their expertise and discoveries with the local and international research community and also shape the future direction of the research.

Despite the fact that this is the journal’s inaugural issue, we implement peer review. More than 20 papers, mostly from the sciences, technologies, and engineering, are included. The papers in the journal should offer insightful analysis of the issues, act as resources for eager researchers, and promote a research culture among academics. Moreover, we have begun rigorously examining the articles for any signs of probable plagiarism.

We believe, it is a worthful initiation of RMU, Pashchimanchal Campus, Lamachour, Pokhara. In the meantime, the continuous and selfless support of the editors and RMU whole team, and peer reviewers is also highly appreciated. I would like to express our sincere thanks to all of them for their valuable support and contribution and hope for the similar cooperation in the days to come.

Furthermore, I would like to thank all of the authors for their efforts and hard work in the field of science and technology.

Last but not least, on behalf of editorial team, I would like to express my gratitude to the UGC Nepal, the TU administration, the Dean, Campus Chief, the campus administration, faculty, and students for their attention, concern, and support.
