Industrial partners of the Experts in Medical Computing project have contributed to program planning. Mutually, the project offers the partners a great opportunity to network with students from versatile backgrounds. It is possible, for example, to participate in a brief virtual meeting and present company outlines as well as potential recruitment needs. From the student perspective, the project aims at increasing know-how in the field of medical computing and attempts to respond to the recruitment needs of the companies. Thus, it offers new career possibilities to the students.
The studies of the program last about a year and include an internship period of 3-4 months (25 ECTS). During this period the students work on an internship project agreed on with a company of their choice. So, keep in mind that some of these companies might welcome an active trainee from the program!
