wanted to see how it was, [

MICCAI Daily:

Was that the right

setting for you to get to know

better, and delay for later the

decision about what you wanted to

do?

Aïcha:

I think so, because the nice

think with biomedical engineering is

that you get to see both worlds: you

get to see the engineering part and

the medical part as well.

MICCAI Daily:

Did you feel fit?

Aïcha:

No, I didn’t. I felt that

basically I did not know enough to

solve those problems. I wanted to

know more,

discover more

challenges and see how I could help.

That’s when I got my first internship

at Siemens

MICCAI Daily:

How did you get it?

Aïcha:

I applied! [

] I had had

a couple of internships before and I

think this helps a lot.

MICCAI Daily:

Why did you chose an

internship in the industry?

Aïcha:

I had already done an

internship in a lab. So in this way I

was seeing both domains.

MICCAI Daily:

How did you feel in

each of them?

Aïcha:

The lab is more research-

oriented and you are free to explore

the problems you want. In the

industry I was given a problem and

also a methodology to solve it. So I

had to figure out how that

methodology could get combined in

a certain way to solve the problem

efficiently. I liked this applied

activity better.

MICCAI Daily:

What happens when

you do not solve the problem?

Aïcha:

That happens also during a

PhD, what happens when it doesn’t

work? That’s the whole point.
