DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The University of North Texas College of Engineering now offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biomedical engineering.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering has become the college’s sixth department, with focus areas including biomedical instrumentation, bio mechanics and bioinformatics.

“Students who enroll in the new biomedical program will learn from engineering faculty who are world-renowned for their expertise in the biomedical engineering field,” said College of Engineering Dean Costas Tsatsoulis. “Students also will have the opportunity to collaborate on research projects with faculty at the UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth.”

As the number of older Americans continues to increase, demand is also rising for medical devices, equipment and technologies. This demand also has created an increase in job opportunities for biomedical engineers. 

The U.S. Labor Department expects biomedical engineering to become the fastest growing engineering field over the next decade. According to Labor Department data, biomedical engineering jobs have experienced growth rates of more than 70 percent in recent years.
