Externship in Shenyang, China

TU/e is involved in a large screening project for early diabetes detection and blindness prevention in Shenyang, Northeast China. Two externship positions (for 3 months, Spring/Summer 2017) are available for engineering students who like to pay an active contribution to this project. The project focuses on automated retinal analysis, inside a large diabetes clinic and a large eye hospital, and has many different aspects, from making the TU/e developed image analysis algorithms run inside the clinical environment, to statistical image- and metadata analysis for the validation of the algorithms.

Shenyang is an attractive large city, and has a lot to offer. It is a modern city, with low costs of living. The project is a collaboration with our TU/e sister Biomedical Engineering school in Shenyang, and offers many opportunities to see the Chinese approach to healthcare, to get to know colleague Chinese students, and to participate in a major blindness-prevention project.
