Study Abroad

Biomedical engineers work in the international community. To make the greatest impact in this global environment, the Cockrell School of Engineering offers study abroad opportunities designed to give engineering students the skills necessary to create partnerships that span borders.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering is pleased to offer a faculty-led Maymester course in Cambridge, England. Professor Kenneth Diller teaches BME 353 Transport Phenomena in Living Systems at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge. Students spend five weeks from late-May to late-June in Cambridge, allowing students to experience British and European culture while completing a required core BME course.
More detailed information on the BME Cambridge Maymester Program is available at the UT Austin Study Abroad Office and in the Academic Advising Office. The application deadline for the program is November 1.

Other Study Abroad Opportunities

Biomedical engineering students interested in more study abroad opportunities are encouraged to visit the International Engineering Education office. Many of the upper division engineering courses offered by other departments may count toward an elective in the BME curriculum; if you find a program you wish you apply for, see the Academic Advising Office to discuss how the credit might be applied to your BME degree.
