Objective: The purpose of this study is to determine the factors are associated that smoking behavior in students diploma of Biomedical Engineering STIKes Binalita Sudama Medan. Method: The results showed that respondents who smoked were 29 respondents (48.3%). Results and Discussion: The results of bivariate analysis found that variables related to smoking behavior in respondents were knowledge (p = 0,000), attitude (p = 0.002), actions (p = 0.001), difficulties during study (p = 0.040), wanting to look cool (p = 0.009), want to be accepted in society (p = 0.020), want to try smoking (p = 0.020), facilities and infrastructure (p = 0.010), parents who smoke (p = 0.010), friends who smoke (p = 0.004) and the effect of cigarette advertisement (p = 0.009). The unrelated variable was a housemate who smoked (p = 0.47). There is a significant relationship between predisposing factors (knowledge, attitudes, actions, and psychological reasons), supporting factors (facilities and infrastructure) and reinforcing factors (smoker parents, smoker friends, and the influence of cigarette advertising) with smoking behavior on students. The results of multivariate analysis showed that the most dominant factors related to smoking behavior among respondents were predisposing factors, namely knowledge (value B = 0.375 and p = 0.000), and reinforcing factors namely parents smoking (value B = 0.302 and p = 0.010).
