Why Study Biomedical Engineering at UNT?

The College of Engineering at UNT offers a unique undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering that allows a student of the program to major in Biomedical Engineering, minor in mathematics and minor in an additional area of engineering. Thus, a student graduating from the 120 SCH program will be well rounded and have the engineering skills and expertise to work in industry, hospitals, or research institutions or to become a motivated entrepreneur.

Our program allows you to tailor your education to your own specialized interest by providing five areas of concentration: Bioinformatics, Biomedical Instrumentation, Biomechanics, Biotechnology, and Biomaterials. As well as a minor in mathematics and a minor in another engineering discipline of your choice, upon completion of the program.

Ashton Baltazar's passion
majoring Biomedical Engineering

"After many college campus tours, scholarships that I turned down at Fine Art universities, and the support of my parents to pursue my passion of studying math and science, I decided to attend UNT as they offered an Biomedical Engineering Degree program that would allow me to continue graduate work in a STEM field and provide a strong academic basis for pursuing medical school."

Admission to the Program

The priority deadline for the University of North Texas is March 1st. Students must apply to the university and once they have been admitted their application is forwarded to the College of Engineering for review.
