Students in UTA’s Bioengineering Department earn broad skills in bioinstrumentation, biomaterials and tissue engineering, medical imaging, biomechanics, and nanomedicine and nanotechnology. The department is on the cutting edge of technology and research, with multiple current grants funded by the NIH, NSF, and others for work related to traumatic brain injuries, cancer, imaging and biomedical technology
Undergraduate students have many opportunities to participate in transformational research with many of the department’s faculty members.
Our faculty and graduate students enjoy an association with nearby UT Southwestern Medical Center, one of the top medical schools in the nation. Students can take engineering and life science courses and conduct research at either campus. Graduates of the program may receive a diploma bearing the seals of both UTA and UTSW if requirements are satisfied. The combined faculty, staff and facilities of the two campuses provide tremendous resources and opportunities for biomedical engineering students. Highly-qualified graduate students may apply for UTA's NIH T32 doctoral training program in nanomaterials, nanoengineering and nanomedicine, focused on cardiovascular and lung diseases, which supports tuition and fees, a generous stipend, and travel.
More than half of our undergraduate students complete a co-op or internship to gain practical work experience prior to graduation, and they are often hired by the companies they intern with. You can find your own opportunity, or the Engineering Co-op/Internship Office can help you.
Students may work alongside faculty on funded research, doing real lab work and gaining valuable skills. Qualified students may use federal work-study funds to participate in such research, and the College of Engineering sponsors more than 40 undergraduate research projects each year.
Finally, all undergraduate students complete a capstone course prior to graduation, finding solutions to real-world problems, often with financial support from an industry partner.
The goal of the Biomedical Engineering undergraduate program is to promote intellectual development of those interested in the bioengineering profession, and to produce graduates who possess the knowledge, tools and traits necessary for a successful career, and for assuming a leadership role in the bioengineering profession. With that goal, our Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) are to produce graduates who:
From the Program Educational Objectives the department designed its baccalaureate program to offer its graduates with:
Further, we prepare graduates with training and experience in:
