The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University is pleased to announce a new study abroad program: STEM Summer Research - Kings College London. This unique program combines the innovative project-based learning that underpins The College’s popular series of Summer Research programs, with the excellence of The School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences (BMEIS) at Kings.

The program is now accepting students for Summer 2019, and we expect it to fill up quickly. Students must be rising seniors in a STEM major with a 3.3 minimum GPA OR rising juniors in a STEM major with 3.5 minimum GPA.

The projects have a theme of pairing technical engineering with practical work and include exciting choices that range from: Estimating cardiac output from the arterial blood pressure signal; to Detecting atrial fibrillation from wearable sensor signals, and Using smart wearables to identify patients at risk of falls.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students to conduct their own research at one of the world’s leading institutions under the guidance of researchers who are leaders in their fields. It’s also based in Central London at St. Thomas’ Hospital, where students’ work will be directly applicable to helping meet patient needs,” says Dr. Jessie Guinn, Assistant Dean of STEM at The College of Global Studies, Arcadia University.

This program is part of the STEM Summer Research set of programs, which are designed to give students the invaluable experience of conducting their own research projects abroad with the rewarding experience of studying overseas and experiencing new cultures. These programs appeal to different disciplines with the STEM category and are located in: London, England; Dublin and Limerick, Ireland; Granada, Spain; Aberdeen, Scotland; and Brisbane, Australia.
