Actually, ‘Biomedical engineering’ refers to the use of principles of engineering disciplines for clinical diagnosis and therapy and for investigating the physiological basis of disease. Biomedical Engineering is for students who have a technical brain with an interest in medicine. Any kind of engineering related to medical science is called biomedical engineering. It includes the engineering of all kinds of therapeutic and diagnostic medical equipment (e.g. MRI, CT Scan, X-ray, Ultrasound, ECG, TMT etc.), implantable devices (e.g. pacemakers, heart valves, artificial joints, etc.) and tissue engineering (repair or manufacture of new human tissues and organs from cells acquired from the patient).

Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering is a fairly new subject, not only in Nepal but in the world itself. Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering program is run in Nepal with affiliation from Purbanchal University. It needs the study of human anatomy, physiology, and diseases as well as various engineering disciplines such as computer engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical and electronics etc. It is a complex subject requiring mathematics as well as biological sciences.

Biomedical engineering also includes molecular and cellular engineering, tissue engineering, plasma engineering, intracellular physiological control mechanisms, drug regulation and drug delivery systems, rehabilitation engineering, and aids for the feeble and the disabled. Biomedical Engineering is an exciting and fast-moving field with ever-changing boundaries. 

Biomedical Engineering and its scope in Nepalese context

Eligibility

Eligibility

Job Prospects

Scopes and Importance?

International experts have commented extremely well on Nepalese syllabus and method of teaching this course. Research projects, done by the students in the last year of the course have been especially appreciated.

Biomedical Engineers are very much in demand abroad and are known to earn more than other professionals in this category. Nepal also has a growing market for such engineers.

In Nepal, hospitals and medical device companies are in great need of such Engineers. There are many specialties for post-graduation in this field. After graduation, one can specialize in Medical Electronics, Medical Physics, and tissue engineering, Biomaterials, Biomechanics, and many others.

After Biomedical Engineering, a bright career awaits the students at hospitals, nursing homes, medical colleges, and medical device industries as part of their Biomedical Staff. With ultramodern hospitals mushrooming all over the country, there will be a very large demand in this discipline.

Apart from this, there are various modern industries dealing in medical equipment, which prefer Biomedical Engineers. Through this interdisciplinary course, we share the knowledge to advance the opportunities and the significance of Biomedical Engineering in efforts that ultimately improve health and quality of life.
