The Department of Biomedical Engineering began its undergraduate program within The University of Texas at Austin's prestigious top-ten ranked Cockrell School of Engineering in 2001. Offering students who excel in math and science an in-depth study of present successes and the future of medical technology and engineering, our undergraduate program prepares students for a demanding, yet highly rewarding, career.
After two years of core curriculum, students choose one of three technical areas of emphasis: Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation, Cellular and Biomolecular Engineering, or Computational Biomedical Engineering. Students may also choose to pursue a minor from another college at The University of Texas at Austin while completing their B.S. in biomedical engineering.
Roughly 100 new biomedical undergraduates are accepted into the program each year, contributing to a close-knit and world-renowned university community in the exciting city of Austin, Texas. Austin is a great place to live and work—blessed with considerable natural beauty, an abundance of outdoor activities, and a thriving arts scene. Read more about living in Austin here.
