Student Develops Life-Saving Smartphone App

Mitacs Globalink student Vicky Liu is working with Professor Victor C.M. Leung of ECE to develop a Smartphone application that will help save lives. The app will display a user’s vital signs onscreen after assessing his or her health via wireless Bluetooth sensors placed on the body. Vicky is working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Computing Science at the Beijing Institute of Technology. She chose the Globalink program because it allowed her to network globally during her exchange. “This has been a very precious opportunity for me,” she said, “and I greatly encourage other international students to consider doing internships with Mitacs Globalink.”
