About the Bioengineering Master’s Program

The master of science in bioengineering is a thesis or non-thesis option program with five interdisciplinary concentrations:

  • Biomechanics (Department of Mechanical Engineering)
  • Biomedical Signals and Systems (Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Biochemical Processes (Department of Chemical Engineering)
  • Occupational Bioengineering (Department of Industrial, Manufacturing and Systems Engineering)
  • Environmental Bioengineering (Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering)

Faculty in the bioengineering area are heavily involved with research activities that require collaboration from scientists and clinicians in the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

Students are required to take 24 credit hours of coursework and perform six credit hours of research for the thesis option or 30 hours of coursework for the non-thesis option. At least half of the coursework hours must be taken in the Whitacre College of Engineering. The remaining courses can be taken within, or outside, of the college of engineering since this is intended as an interdisciplinary master’s degree. At least one higher level math course must be taken at the graduate level.

For further information, contact Dr. Ranadip Pal, Assistant Dean of Strategic Initiatives and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
