Design Studio Excellence Fund

Design courses in the department provide practical experience with hands-on prototyping and development tools that are key for a biomedical engineer to understand. The Biomedical Engineering Design Studio will introduce students to biomedical engineering fundamentals and practical experience through hands-on prototyping and development tools. Expected features of the studio include, but are not limited to:

  • Video conferencing capabilities
  • Electronics and test equipment
  • Prototyping tools, materials and supplies

National Excellence Fellows Program Fund

The doctoral program landscape across the country is increasingly competitive, with top candidates receiving multi-year high-salary offers, signing bonuses, and travel funds from multiple highly-ranked programs. The National Excellence Fellows Program was created to help attract these high-achieving students. Recipients often go on receive national fellowships from agencies like the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, which positively impacts our research and program visibility.

Endowed Scholarships

Dr. William Hyman Scholarship Fund

Dr. William Hyman joined the faculty at Texas A&M in 1972 and throughout the course of his distinguished career taught every graduate of the biomedical engineering program, making a profound contribution to the success and growth of the department. In order to pay tribute to his lifetime achievements as both a teacher and a pioneering professional biomedical engineer, a scholarship has been created in his honor that serves to provide support for outstanding students.

Roger J. McNichols '98 Memorial Scholarship

This fund honors the memory of former student Roger McNichols. The fund will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University. The standards used for all scholarships within the Department of Biomedical Engineering will be applied along with a bent that exemplified Mr. McNichols as a student, namely toward students doing translational work, that have a propensity for entrepreneurism and/or a passion for taking more than the required classes to truly expand the breadth of their education.

Ayse Yalcinkaya '02 Memorial Scholarship

This fund honors the memory of former student Ayse Yalcinkaya ‘02. The fund will be used to provide one or more scholarships to full-time students in good standing pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in biomedical engineering from Texas A&M University. The standards used for all scholarships within the Department of Biomedical Engineering will be applied along with additional selection preferences that highlight female biomedical engineering students that are classified as either juniors or seniors, and are members of the Society of Women Engineers with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
