Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Bioengineering in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science at UT Dallas.

Bioengineering Science Building at TwilightOver the past half century, we have seen computer technology advance at a rapid speed. However, the application of this technology within the human body has failed to keep pace. One of the greatest challenges of this new century is the development of highly technical solutions to medical conditions. The Department of Bioengineering at UT Dallas is designed to create the next generation of engineers proficient at working with both advanced electronics and biological tissue. Biomedical engineering integrates engineering problem solving with medicine and biology. Students who choose this exciting and challenging major will go on to engineer and innovate medical solutions that will reduce health care costs, improve human health and increase the quality of life for all humankind.

We offer degrees in biomedical engineering – degrees infused with physiology, biology, software engineering, hardware engineering and medical device design. The interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to biomedical engineering combines expertise in electrical, mechanical and materials engineering, coupled with the life sciences.

The graduate program grants degrees in biomedical engineering as part of collaboration with
UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas.
