  • The college has successfully organized two International Conferences on "Medical Materials, Devices and Regenerative Medicine (MMDRM)"  and one international seminar on “Recent Developments in Biomedical Engineering” in Kathmandu where Professors, scientists, engineers, clinicians and researchers from different countries all over the world, including USA, UK, Australia, Japan, Belgium, China, Singapore, India and Nepal participated and presented papers.
  • Above 40% of our graduates are pursuing Masters and PhD programs in reputed Universities around the globe. More than 40 of them have already completed their Ph.D. Most of the graduates of this college have received full scholarships, assistantships or research grants for their higher studies. Some of them have also received prestigious scholarships such as Erasmus Mundus (Europe), Marie Curie fellowship (Italy) and Singa Award (Singapore).
  • Some of the CBEAS graduates have established their own companies and have provided jobs to many biomedical engineers.
  • Since its inception in the year 2062, we have already produced 13 (Thirteen) batches with above 500 graduates and to the best of our knowledge none of the graduates are found to be unemployed.
  • Our students have received first prizes in paper and poster presentations at various national and international conferences. Many articles written by our students have already been published and are being published in international journals like Photodiagnosis & Photodynamic Therapy, Engineering Reports, Dalton Transactions, International Journal of Biomedical & Advance Research, Journal of Engineering in Medicine, International Journal of Creative & Innovative Research in all Studies and many more.
  • We have been providing internships to foreign students and some of our students are also going to foreign countries for the same reason. We have already established partnership with International Association for the Exchange of students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) for this purpose.
  • Student's intake quota has been increased from 72 to 96 from the last year.

College of Biomedical Engineering and Applied Sciences (CBEAS), established in 2005 is affiliated to Purbanchal University and registered with Nepal Engineering Council. There are only a few colleges in Asia providing higher education in Biomedical Engineering and this is the only one in Nepal. Within a very short span of time, this college has established a coveted place in this field and efforts continue to make it a unique institution in the field of Biomedical education. The college uses all its initiations in facilitating new opportunities for students and gain a new height. The college is imparting world class education providing professional opportunities here and aboard.

What is Biomedical Engineering?

'Biomedical Engineering' refers to the use of principles of engineering disciplines for clinical diagnosis and therapy, and for investigating the physiological basis of diseases. It provides education on engineering of artificial organs, implantable devices, cardiac assisting devices, imaging and other diagnostic and therapeutic equipment. It also involves development of organs from cells, known as Tissue Engineering.


The main objective is to serve as a centre of excellence by conducting research works and bringing out technocrats with superior skills & commitment. The whole motto concentrates on generating brilliant young talents to face all challenges in this highly competitive global scenario. In order to meet all these, the college plans to introduce Masters Program soon. As a premier Biomedical body, it aims at playing a significant role in the overall development of health sectors of Nepal. In fact, it also mirrors Nepal's growth and development in intellectual field.

Scope of Courses

Biomedical Engineers are needed all over the world, whether developed, developing or under developed. These engineers are selling like hot cakes in world market. In Nepal also, they are being employed extensively in hospitals, nursing homes, medical colleges, and medical equipment companies. After completing this course, the graduates can establish their own independent industries thereby creating more jobs.


The faculty of CBEAS comprises of experienced, trained, and well-educated teachers. Many college faculties are recognized nationally and internationally for their teaching and research expertise. Guest Lectures from various nationally and internationally renowned professors are conducted very frequently.

Message from the Chairman

Laxman Pokhrel

Dear students, guardians and well-wishers!

When I glance back at a decade an half that we have passed and think about the achievements, we have sufficient reasons to take pride and satisfy ourselves on our achievements and are in the continuous process of achieving more.

The questions that we had to face in those fifteen years were:

  • What is the future of the students after graduating from this college?
  • Can we go abroad for higher studies?
  • What is the future of biomedical engineers in Nepal?

Now, the scenario has completely changed and there is only one question being asked frequently:  "Can we get admission easily in this college?" Due to the overwhelming flow of the students, we have raised the seats from 60 to 96.

Since the graduation of our first batch of students in the year 2009, more than 40% graduates from this college have gone abroad for higher studies. They are admitted not only in Master's course but also directly into PhD. Most of them have already completed their studies and started working.

Our students are studying almost all over the world including USA, UK, Canada, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, Netherlands, Australia, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, China and India. Most of them have received research and teaching assistantships as well as prestigious scholarships like Erasmus Mundus and Singa awards. Those who have stayed back in Nepal are all engaged, some of them having established their own companies giving employment to other graduates.

We are concentrating not only on academic field, but on research and overall development of the students. Our students have come out with some outstanding and very useful research projects and publications.

In short, look at our achievements that we have accomplished during those years:

We have already organized three international conferences. We are the recipient of QAA (Certificate of Institutional Accreditation) from University Grants Commission (UGC-Nepal) as well as Best Private Engineering College Award from the Ministry of Education, Nepal Government. We are very likely to launch Master's degree program in Biomedical Engineering in this college from the next academic year.

To conclude, I must extend my sincere thanks from the core of my heart to those teachers and administrative staffs for contributing from their side in overall development of this college.

Thank you!
