Biomedical Engineering Master's Highlights

Our labs feature hi-tech instruments such as a bio 3D printer that prints cells mimicking human tissue and a 3D virtual dissection table that allows students to delve inside the human body without a scalpel.
As a Tier One Public Research University, our faculty investigate exoskeleton technology that may someday help people with limited mobility; develop nanotechnology and optics to diagnose cancer; and research biopolymers and flexible bioelectronics that may help doctors deliver medications and manage illnesses.
Teaching and research assistantships provide support for many graduate students. In addition to a monthly stipend, assistantships also qualify students for in-state tuition rates, and many students receive tuition and fee support
Our program is ranked #2 on the Best Masters in Biomedical Engineering Degree Programs by
The UNT G. Brint Ryan College of Business and the College of Engineering offer a joint degree program that confers an M.B.A. in Business Management and a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering, giving students the option to earn both in as little as two years.
UNT's biomedical engineering building provides faculty and students with modern classrooms, research labs, facilities for microscopy, cell culture and optics as well as teaching labs and a senior design lab.

What Can You Do With A Degree in Biomedical Engineering?

Students with a master's in Biomedical Engineering may work in manufacturing or research or become entrepreneurs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of bioengineers and biomedical engineers shows a 6% projected growth between 2020 to 2030.

An average of 1,400 job openings for biomedical engineers are projected each year through the next decade.
