Scania Internship Production

Scania Internship Production gives you the opportunity to get to know the Manufacturing at Scania as a complement to your education. If you are studying for a Bachelor of Science or Master of Science in Engineering you are eligible for this program. It is an advantage to start the program early in your education. You will of course be compensated throughout the internship.

Scania Internship Production is a six week program, five weeks before industry holiday and one week after. Alongside your daily work at the shop floor, you will take part in seminars, lectures, go-and-see and a one week final project. You will get to know the Scania Production System, shop floor engineering and how to work with improvements. During the first year of the internship, you lay the foundations and get an understanding what it is like to work within production. After the first year you may apply for the program again and get the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and perform engineering tasks. You may apply as long as you are a student.


The Scania Internship Production is an initiative run in cooperation with the KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, and Linköping University. You may of course participate in the program even if you study at another University in Sweden. If you participate in the program for the first time you can apply to get the internship counted as a college course equivalent to six credits at KTH if you fulfil the requirements.

”When theory could be applied on reality during my time at the programme, the understanding for my studies grew. I really understood my courses, and also had the first contact with my future employer."

Olivia Löwhagen, Workshop Manager Production


In the application form, choose the area that interests you the most:

  • Assembly
  • Machining
  • Scania decides (If you do not have any preferences)


The Assembly area consist of two sub groups:

  • Assembly: Assemble components (engine, gearbox, axles) or vehicles at the assembly line. This would be a great choice if you are detail oriented and enjoy precision and team work. You will work in a fast paced dynamic environment. After the completion of the program you will have a better understanding of the importance of assembly for the bigger company picture.

  • Logistics: Logistics is the flow of production parts from the goods reception to the consuming assembly station. You will have the opportunity to try the entire flow before diving in deeper into one area of logistics. There are only limited positions within this subgroup. 


In order to work within Machining, you need to be able to work shifts. The Machining area consists of two sub groups:

  • Manufacturing machining: You will be able to follow a product from raw material to completed part. Daily duties will include rigging, quality work, daily planning and some industrial engineering.
  • Maintenance: Maintenance means both proactive and reactive work to keep the process equipment up and running as well as optimizing cost. There are limited positions within this subgroup.


Application period: 16 January - 19 February 2023
