During this program, students will be hosted by Nanjing University to participate in an engineering design and research camp. The seminars, biomedical research, and design workshops will be held in the Biomedical Engineering department spaces on main campus, including a main lecture and seminar room, and multiple research labs for design work. Students will be placed in a research lab, and work with faculty and students to design experiences, conduct research, and analyze results. Applications of the work to medical design and global healthcare will be addressed. In addition to the main objectives of the design course, the program will include excursions to places like Beijing and Shanghai to see historical sites, visit major medical device companies like GE Healthcare, and visit a third engineering partner, University of Science and Technology, China (USTC).
*This program runs on a three year rotation and will be offered next for Summer 2020.
The host university, Nanjing University is over 100 years old, and is one of the top nine university in all of China. Nanjing University is a few miles from downtown Nanjing, a metropolitan city of 8-10 million people. The school has many different colleges on its main campus (Goluo), which resembles Ohio State's main campus in many ways: lots of old and new buildings, walking paths throughout campus, many areas of mature trees and park space, integration of campus and community.
Students will have shared rooms in a hotel on the edge of Nanjing University campus, within walking distance for meeting and dining areas. Students will enjoy breakfast and lunch at the student dining commons, to experience campus life and try new foods.
