Siemens Healthineers: Summer Challenge 2024

Are you studying Computer Science or an IT related field of study in at least your 3rd semester? Are you interested in Medical Technology and how connected devices interact, i.e. Internet of Things (IoT)? Have you seen the hype about the metaverse and how digital twins help in understanding real world objects?  Are you interested to learn how Siemens Healthineers uses data to support their customers in optimizing their clinical routines and enhance patient care? Then join the event of the summer:  The D&A Summer Challenge!

Get ready for a close encounter with digital twins – visualization of software usage. The „D&A Summer Challenge“ takes place on September 18 2024, from 09:00 – 17:30 in Forchheim!

Your tasks and responsibilities:

  • If you already know some basics about distributed systems and IoT integration use cases and are curious on how it is applied in the field of medical technology, you will get fascinating insights about using data to support clinical practitioners and our maintenance efforts
  • But it does not stop there: Your team will create a digital twin as a web-application dashboard within the hackathon to understand how radiologists and other clinical members use our software
  • To prepare you for the challenge, we will invite you to two half-day or one day preparation meetings before the event. There, you will get some hands-on training from our experts on how to read for example CT images with our software. Additionally, we also prepare a short training on soft skills you need during the hackathon. One of these meetings is planned to be in person for working with our software, the other will be virtual
  • Already convinced? That was not all: In addition to a practical insight into the world of digital twins in medical technology, you will have plenty of chances to get in touch with Siemens Healthineers colleagues from the field of software development. There will be plenty of chances to learn about Siemens Healthineers and expand your network in our after show event. Maybe we can even convince you to join us as a working student (f/m/d)?
