Biomedical Engineering Master of Science Degree Program

Bioengineering Masters of Science


The Biomedical Engineering Program is jointly offered by The University of Texas at Arlington and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas (UT Southwestern). Research and teaching efforts of various departments in the biological, engineering, mathematical, physical, and medical sciences of both institutions are coordinated through the Committee on Graduate Studies in Biomedical Engineering.

Goals and Concentration Tracks

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, in hospitals, in research facilities of educational and medical institutions and in government regulatory agencies. Internships are aimed to further prepare students for careers in the bioengineering industry.

The 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 doctoral program must select one of the concentration tracks:

  1. Bioinstrumentation
  2. Biomaterials/Tissue Engineering
  3. Biomechanics
  4. Medical Imaging
  5. Nanomedicine
  6. Nanotechnology
  7. Protein Engineering

Combined Degree Plan: Bachelor of Science in Biology and Master of Science in Bioengineering

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 students in either Biomedical Engineering, or Physics, or Biochemistry to receive dual undergraduate and graduate course credit leading to receiving both a Bachelor of Science Degree in either Biomedical Engineering, or Physics, or Biochemistry and a Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering. See the departmental advisors for additional information on these programs.

Requirements for Licensure or Certification

All discipline specific programs in the College of Engineering meet educational requirements for professional licensure or certification in all U.S. states, territories, and the District of Columbia.

Master's Degree in Engineering

The responsibility rests with each student for knowing the rules, regulations, and filing deadlines of the Graduate School and their respective department. This page provides general information only. Requirements of the Graduate School and the academic department must be met.
