The Bioengineering Department at UT Dallas grants graduate degrees in biomedical engineering in collaboration with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and The University of Texas at Arlington. The program emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, combining expertise in electrical, mechanical and materials engineering, coupled with the life sciences. To ensure that you are taking the appropriate courses, we encourage you to consult with your advisor in the Academic Advising Program at your home institution.



UT Southwestern

Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center is at the forefront of discovering knowledge to address complex biomedical challenges. UT Southwestern researchers have made numerous groundbreaking discoveries including determining how cells regulate cholesterol; solving the molecular structure of the complex that turns light into chemical energy; and discovering G proteins. Scientists at UT Southwestern work collaboratively and across disciplines to answer fundamental questions about human life and health.

The UT Southwestern Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences is committed to giving students the opportunity to participate in and conduct significant biomedical research. Areas of current investigation at UT Southwestern are exceedingly diverse.

The University of Texas at Dallas

Biomedical engineering is a broad field and includes virtually any application of engineering to medicine, biology or health care. UT Dallas has chosen to focus its biomedical research in the following areas:

  • Electronic sensors and devices
  • Neuroscience and engineering
  • Surgical procedures and interventions
  • Bio/nano applications to materials and medicine
  • New technologies for cancer detection, control and treatment
  • Advanced imaging research

UT Dallas, UT Southwestern and UT Arlington already collaborate on numerous research projects through the Advanced Imaging Research Center, the UT Dallas Callier Center for Communication Disorders and other joint research programs. UT Dallas will be creating an 8,000 square foot center at UT Southwestern to foster collaborations between the institutions. This center will focus on the development of advance clinical tools.
