Apply for the 2014 International Summer Academy of Bioengineering

The International Summer Academy is jointly organized by the SCU School of Engineering and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) School of Pharmacy. Last summer, SCU bioengineering students had the opportunity to participate in the International Summer Academy of Pharmacy (ISAP) hosted by SJTU, where they had hands-on experiences learning Traditional Chinese Medicine. This upcoming summer, SCU will be hosting the International Summer Academy of Bioengineering (ISAB), which will focus on bioengineering and medical devices. If you are interested in participating in the 2014 ISAB program, please fill out the application below and email to The deadline for application submissions is over. Students may still apply, but priority will go to students who applied before the deadline.
