Research & Internships
Pushing the Boundaries of the Classroom
BME students graduate well prepared for careers and graduate school. The majority of undergraduates are engaged in interdisciplinary BME research. They also put their technical skills and knowledge into practice with design projects and internships.
Participate in mentored, self-directed research through the Undergraduate Biology Research Program (Tucson Campus), a highly competitive program that provides students with a one-year stipend to conduct and present biology-related research.
Join a faculty project or start your own via the University of Arizona’s undergraduate research opportunities.
Exceptional Design Projects
The UA Engineering Design Program is crucial to your career readiness. This yearlong experience helps ensure you are ready for the workplace and opens doors to employers.
BME seniors work on teams with students from other engineering disciplines creating real-world models and products, some of which are patented and commercialized, for industry and academic clients.
Present your project at Design Day – arguably the most exciting college event of the year, besides graduation. Impress industry partners, see how professional engineers rate your work, and win prizes and public recognition.
All College of Engineering students are encouraged to complete at least one industry internship – many of which are paid – typically for course credit.
Visit the UA Engineering website for extensive information about the college’s internship program and tips for landing your dream job.
