STEM Summer Research -  Limerick

Program Overview

Concentrate your focus on your studies in engineering this summer while creating your own research in your chosen field! Earn six credits over six weeks as you stay on track for graduation, undertaking significant research. 

You’ll work under the guidance of researchers at one of Ireland’s leading engineering schools: University of Limerick. The University is home to the innovative Bernal Institute, focusing on such areas as Advanced Materials, Manufacturing and Process Engineering, and Fluid Dynamics.

This School is research-driven, with state-of-art facilities. It’s staffed by professionals with expertise in translating their knowledge into solutions for both academic and industrial applications. 

The School is also affiliated with  the Irish Centre for Composites (ICOMP); Centre for Applied Biomedical Engineering Research (CABER); Automation Research Centre (ARC); and Enterprise Engineering Research Group.

Your program is based at one of the friendliest, most popular, and well-connected universities in Ireland, with strong ties to community and a friendly, welcoming campus vibe.

Projects are available in the following areas: Computer and Software Engineering; Biomedical Engineering; Aerospace and Materials Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; Engineering Education/Psychology; Science Education; Material Science and Engineering; Civil and Materials Engineering Chemical Engineering.

Courses and Credits

A variety of courses are offered. See arcadia.edu for course listings and descriptions. Specific Ohio State course equivalences and credits will be determined by the appropriate Ohio State academic departments.

Each course a student takes abroad, regardless of the grade received or how course credit counts toward degree requirements, must:
  • Be approved via the credit evaluation process; students are strongly encouraged to do this prior to submitting their applications.
  • Transfer back to the student’s Ohio State record.
  • Be completed for graded Ohio State credit. This grade will be factored into the student’s GPA.
Completion of the credit evaluation process does not guarantee the availability of the course abroad. Students are encouraged to have multiple back-up courses approved. Students who cancel their participation for failure to secure approval for desired course work will be subject to the cancellation policy

Admitted participants are required to register themselves in the temporary study abroad placeholder course, ARTSSCI 5797.  Further instructions will be provided upon admission to the program.


Eligibility

In order to be eligible to apply for this program, students must meet Arcadia's program-specific requirements and meet OIA's General Eligibility Requirements and Conditions for Participation. All students will also be required to participate in on-campus pre-departure orientations organized by the Office of International Affairs.

Students may not graduate during the same term in which they are participating on a third party provider/direct enroll program.

Application instructions
Applicants are required to submit TWO applications: 
1. OIA education abroad application (start at the "Apply Now" at the bottom or top of this page);
2. Arcadia application. 

IMPORTANTBoth applications must be submitted by the Ohio State application deadline.  

Passports

Passports are required for every Ohio State study abroad program. For many study abroad destinations, passport information is required to apply for an entry visa (as early as 6 months prior to departure). For information about applying for a passport, go to travel.state.gov.


Program Costs

Students will pay the Arcadia program fee directly to Arcadia. A waiver of tuition for Ohio State students that participate on university-approved third party provider or direct enroll programming is in effect until June 30, 2021. The Arcadia program fee includes tuition, housing, excursions, and in-country orientation.

If students withdraw or become ineligible any time 11 days after the acceptance notification from OSU, they will be held responsible for a $200 cancellation fee. Please refer to OIA's Cancellation Policy.

Please note that upon application, a $150 application fee will be assessed. The application fee will be refunded only if the applicant is not accepted or a written request to withdraw the application is submitted prior to the application deadline. Both the OIA and Arcadia applications must be submitted by the Ohio State deadline. The Arcadia application can be found at studyabroad.arcadia.edu. All Arcadia application materials must be submitted directly to Arcadia.


Scholarships

Students should begin researching funding opportunities before they have been accepted into a study abroad program. Grants and Scholarships deadlines may occur before the study abroad program application deadline.

Please review Arcadia’s scholarship page for additional funding opportunities.

Students who receive or are eligible to receive a Federal Pell Grant are encouraged to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program. This program is Gilman eligible. Interested students should first verify their existing award package and make an appointment with Student Financial Aid as needed.  After researching the scholarship, students wishing to apply for the Gilman International Scholarship should be in touch with the listed education abroad coordinator to begin working on a competitive application.

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
This experience helped me narrow down my academic goals. I already knew for the most part what direction I wanted to go in, but working in a Biomedical lab showed me that first I don't want to be an engineer. I worked with many engineers and know that I can understand them, but I preferred the medical side of things. Second, my experience confirmed that I want to continue working in a lab. I enjoy the area where innovation roams freely and has the ability to be developed to impact lives. I plan to continue the pursuit of medical research with the remaining time I have left at the Ohio State University and hopefully into the future as well.
