Biomedical Engineering Core Facilities

UTSA main campus Biomedical Engineering Core Facilitiy

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and UT Health San Antonio  offer many resource facilities with biotechnology equipment and state-of-the-art laboratories.

The Biotechnology, Sciences and Engineering Building at UTSA is a 220,000-square foot facility that won the Education Design Showcase 2006 award. It houses several STEM-related classroom and teaching laboratories. The 4th floor of the building is also dedicated to brain health research and chemical engineering. 

Another building that our students frequent at UTSA is the Applied Engineering and Technology Building. The four-floor facility includes 87 faculty offices, 36 laboratories, five classrooms and collaborative study niches. The ground floor includes classroom and laboratory space.

Faculty from the College of Engineering's biomedical engineering, civil and environmental engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and mechanical engineering departments will primarily occupy laboratory and office space on the first and second floors. The College of Sciences' Department of Physics and Astronomy will occupy the third floor. The AET Building also houses UTSA's first satellite library. The bookless library was designed with engineering and science students in mind. On the building's paseo level, the 2,200-square-foot facility is near laboratories and classrooms and features moveable dividers to create spaces for collaborative and individual study. The satellite library has digital monitors and whiteboards to aid group projects, along with 12 computer stations and librarians to assist students in finding information they need. Administrative offices are located in the  Applied Engineering and Technology  Building in Room 1.102.
