Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering has been approved by THECB!
The Department of Biomedical Engineering is proud to announce their latest degree offering – Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering.
Our new Ph.D. program offers two tracks: a traditional research track that will help you progress toward your academic career goal and a one-of-a-kind healthcare start-up management track in collaboration with the G. Brint Ryan College of Business. High-achieving students may apply with a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering.
- Ph.D. In Biomedical Engineering Research Track, after BS degree plan
- Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering Research Track, after MS degree plan
- Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering Healthcare Startup, after BS degree plan
- Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering Healthcare Startup, after MS degree plan
If you would like to complement your Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering or Mechanical Engineering, then our programs offering a concentration in Biomedical Engineering may be just what you’re looking for. Here are the Ph.D. programs we offer in the College of Engineering that include a concentration in Biomedical Engineering:
- Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering Concentration in Materials Science and Engineering
- Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering Concentration in Mechanical and Energy Engineering
- Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering Concentration in Electrical Engineering
If your previous degree (BS or MS) is an area other than Biomedical Engineering, then you may need to take some leveling courses. Please consult with your graduate advisor in Biomedical Engineering.
