PhD Biomedical Mechanical and Energy Engineering

The Mechanical and Energy Engineering doctoral program with a concentration in Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Texas offers a ground-breaking opportunity to learn fundamental and applied knowledge to create new technology for the healthcare field.

Our Doctor of Philosophy degree is the first of its kind in Texas, and the innovative curriculum allows you to study and conduct research with world-class faculty members. This collaboration can lead to being published in professional journals, providing a validation of your hard work and strong research.

In addition, you'll work with faculty members to develop a broad and in-depth knowledge for solving energy problems. You'll explore topics such as:

  • Bio-based green and sustainable products
  • Energy-efficient intelligent vehicles
  • Energy-efficient products and structures
  • Fundamentals of energy
  • Renewable and alternative clean energy
  • Solid mechanics and controls
  • Thermal energy and fluids

You can conduct research with faculty members in laboratories containing the most modern equipment in the nation. Among our facilities is the Zero Energy Research Laboratory where various energy technologies aimed at achieving net-zero consumption of energy are tested. The facility is the first of its kind in Texas. Other facilities include:

  • Bioproducts Lab
  • Center for Advanced Scientific Computing and Modeling
  • Composite Mechanics and Manufacturing Lab
  • Computer-Aided Design and Analysis Lab
  • Functional Cellular Solids Lab
  • Laboratory of Small Scale Instrumentation
  • Manufacturing and Engineering Technology Lab
  • PACCAR Technology Institute
  • Thermal Fluid Science Lab
