At Sectra we want to use our passion for technology to contribute to a better world. Sectra develops and sells IT systems and products for imaging management within healthcare. We also have core expertise in encryption technology. Sectra was founded in 1978 and has its roots in Linköping University in Sweden. Today, Sectra has offices in 13 countries and operates through partners worldwide.
At Sectra Medical, we save lives. How do we do that? By designing and producing medical imaging IT solutions that increase the efficiency of hospitals and clinics worldwide. With 30 years of experience and the highest customer satisfaction for eight consecutive years our knowledge and passion is clear. Our vision of using technology to create a patient-centered care is what drives us every day. Now we want to share that knowledge and passion with you – the future of engineering.
We welcome driven and talented soon-to-be-graduates with a passion for medtech to our master thesis program in Linköping and Örebro for the spring of 2022. If you are interested in being part of the future of healthcare, we offer you the opportunity to use your ideas, energy, curiosity, and determination to create a better patient experience. Our scope includes a wide range of interesting challenges, and we are more than happy to discuss possible projects with you. We want you to find a project that first and foremost is in line with your skills, interests, and ambitions. That’s the key to a successful project. For technical areas your topic could be centered around image analysis, visualization, advanced database applications and other complex software development. If you are interested in working in direct and close contact with customers, we can offer projects to develop and evaluate smaller product ideas.
