College Welcomes Biomedical Engineering Students

August 25, 2014 was a special day for the College of Engineering. The first ever class in Biomedical Engineering (BMEN), the college’s newest kid in the block, met from 1:30 p.m. to 2:20 p.m. in room B185 at Discovery Park. The class was ‘Discover Biomedical Engineering’, a discovery course taught by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies and Interim, founding Chair of BMEN, Dr. Vijay Vaidyanathan. For a department that was approved by the THECB in late February, the class has 73 enthusiastic students, all of whom were there for the historic occasion.  Thirty-seven percent of the new students in BMEN are female.  The biomedical engineering degree at UNT is unique in that it offers students a 3-in-1 opportunity: a degree in Biomedical Engineering, a minor in math and an option to minor in another engineering discipline – all in 120 SCH.
