Biomedical engineering is part of a joint graduate program involving UT Southwestern, UT Dallas, and UT Arlington. We also have close ties with high-tech industries in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Thus, the program offers a robust set of resources for biomedical research and education.
The University of Texas at Dallas
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.
The University of Texas at Arlington
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 Bioengineering. 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.
Note: In degree plan descriptions, course numbers followed by a D are offered at U.T. Southwestern.
