Gerold Hackenfort and his friends are studying medical technology in Gelsenkirchen: "We are at MEDICA because we are looking for internships or a job after graduating with a Bachelor's degree. We have just visited a stand of an exhibitor that sells CTs. We have also had some good conversations with people from the industry, they are actually all very open to our requests for internships. So far we have found a mobile CT very exciting. And trends are moving towards Augmented Reality".
