Bioengineering students from around the world work with award-winning faculty in state-of-the-art facilities, acquiring the knowledge and skills they'll need to create viable solutions to today's most pressing problems. We are glad you are considering the Department of Bioengineering at UT Arlington.
Future Undergraduate Students
We offer a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in either Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering or Medical Imaging. The goal of the program is to prepare students for bioengineering careers requiring skills in research, development, and teaching in a variety of settings in industry, hospitals, research facilities of educational and medical institutions and government regulatory agencies.
Plans for ABET accreditation
The bioengineering department has solid plans in place to obtain ABET accreditation. However in order to do so, it a requirement under ABET guidelines, for at least one student to graduate under the new bioengineering undergraduate program before an application can be submitted. We anticipate accreditation in the 2015-2016 academic year. For additional information please visit http://www.abet.org/eligibility-requirements/.
Future Graduate Students
The graduate program includes coursework and research in medical imaging, biosensors, physiological control systems, biomedical signal processing, biomedical instrumentation, rehabilitation, orthopedics, biomechanics, biomaterials and tissue engineering, cell and molecular engineering and neurosciences. Specifically, during the first year of their studies, students in the master's and doctoral programs must select one of the concentration tracks in Bioengineering:
Are you a new graduate student? Don't forget about Graduate Student Orientation.
The Department of Bioengineering offers a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering degree with two concentrations for the undergraduate program:
The program prepares students for bioengineering careers requiring skills in research, development, and teaching in a variety of settings in industry, hospitals, research facilities of educational and medical institutions and government regulatory agencies. Graduates may also continue their education in the medical and dental field or graduate studies in bioengineering.
All degree options provide a strong foundation in science, mathematics, and engineering science; technical competence in multiple areas of bioengineering practice; and an understanding of the importance of ethics, safety, professionalism and socioeconomic concerns in resolving technical problems through synthesis, planning, and design. Elements of design are introduced at the freshman level. This is followed by an analysis and design component in professional program courses, culminating in a comprehensive design experience.
The master's program is based upon graduate level work in Bioengineering, life sciences and related physical sciences. The Univeristy catalog will be able to assist you in finding out additional information on the Masters program as well as admision requirements.
The doctoral program is based upon graduate level work in Bioengineering, and extensive graduate training in the life sciences and related physical sciences. The program is aimed at the development of professional biomedical engineers capable of independent research. The Univeristy catalog will be able to assist you in finding out additional information on the Doctoral program as well as admision requirements.
U.S. Citizen or Permanent resident seeking a Doctoral degree may be eligible for full or partial funding through the department's GANN fellowship.
Combined Degree Plan: B.S. in Biology and M.S. in Biomedical Engineering
This five-year curriculum prepares students for careers in the fast growing Biotechnology and Bioengineering industries. The curriculum also prepares students for medical school and advanced study. Students are required to take courses from engineering, life sciences and liberal arts, culminating in a five-year Master of Science Degree in Biomedical Engineering, including a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. The curriculum is offered jointly by the College of Engineering and the College of Science.
Fast Track Programs for a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering
The Fast Track program enables outstanding undergraduate Physics or Biochemistry students to receive dual undergraduate and graduate course credit leading to receiving both a Bachelor of Science Degree in either Physics or Biochemistry and a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering. See the departmental advisors for additional information on these programs.
