A concurrent enrollment agreement is in place between The University of Texas at Dallas, The University of Texas at Arlington, and The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. This agreement allows any student enrolled concurrently between these institutions to receive a waiver of certain fees per Texas Education Code 54.011. Students must be enrolled in at least one semester credit hour at their home institution to be considered concurrently enrolled. Students must apply for concurrent enrollment with submission of a form, through their graduate advisor. No additional admittance or enrollment at UT Dallas, UT Arlington or UT Southwestern is required to take graduate bioengineering courses at those universities, if you are a enrolled as a graduate student at one of the three universities. Only a concurrent enrollment form is needed.

UT Southwestern

Biomedical engineering (BME) is an interdisciplinary science that employs engineering methods and approaches to define and solve biological problems. The UT Southwestern Medical Center BME Program emphasizes the development of advanced procedures and technologies that facilitate basic biomedical research as well as detecting, diagnosing, and treating disease and disability.

The Biomedical Engineering Program has more than 40 faculty members from both basic science and clinical departments at UT Southwestern, with research covering a broad range of fundamental and applied bioengineering research. The BME Program promotes a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment, with a focus on the highest quality education and training for our students.

The UT Southwestern BME Program features three research and teaching tracks:

The BME Program also supports and promotes research in Bioinstrumentation and Medical Devices through its collaborations with UT Arlington, UT Dallas, and other academic and industry partners.

The University of Texas at Dallas

The objective of the MS degree program in biomedical engineering is to produce graduates who are capable of undertaking challenging projects that require advanced knowledge of the design of mechanical, electrical and thermal systems, focused in life science applications.
The objective of the PhD program in biomedical engineering is to produce graduates who can identify future applications in the field, analyze current technology capability and synthesize new solutions that extend the state of the art in biomedical applications. Combined expertise in electrical, mechanical and materials engineering, coupled to life sciences platforms will allow graduates to create new tools, processes and implementations that provide solutions to more complex medical and health-related problems. PhD graduates will have the ability to evaluate difficult life sciences-related issues and create solutions of the future.

The University of Texas at Arlington

The Department of Bioengineering is one of the fastest-growing departments within the UTA College of Engineering. Our students have diverse interests and work with each other and the faculty to see their ideas take shape in the laboratory.
