The School of Medical Sciences (KUSMS) and School of Engineering have the most students. The School of Medical Science was formerly known as KUMS but was renamed KUSMS in 2006 with the belief that the school not only trains medical graduates and postgraduates, but also operates paramedical disciplines. The School of Science and the School of Engineering are located on campus, unlike other schools that have colleges nationwide. The School of Engineering currently offers courses for undergraduate and graduate students, mainly in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, computers, civil engineering and geomatics. Chemical engineering and Bachelor of Architecture were also recently launched. The School of Science currently offers courses in B.Sc Human Biology, Environmental Science and Technology, Biotechnology, and Applied Physics. Chemical Engineering, BSc Nursing in Obstetrics and Bachelor in Physiotherapy are the latest additions to the list of subjects that the KU is offering students in Nepal for the first time.
