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 technical brain with an interest in medicine.
Any kind of engineering related to medical science is called biomedical engineering, It includes 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. Here at CBEAS, we are pushing those boundaries in a number of overlapping and interrelated areas.
Must have secured C+ Grade in all subjects in +2 or equivalent
Students from both Maths and/or Biology streams of +2 science or I.Sc. can apply for admissions for Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (affiliated with Purbanchal University).
Where to Study?
In Nepal, the only college for studying Biomedical Engineering is the ‘College of Biomedical Engineering and Applied Sciences (CBEAS)’ located in Handigaun, Kathmandu (www.biomedical.edu.np) . In India there are a few private institutions running this course.
The cost of studying this course in Nepal is about NRs. 9,80,000.00,
