Current participants

Summer Internship

Scania Student Intro builds on the interaction between studies and practical work. Summer work at Scania is part of the programme and participants are offered summer internship related to their study specialisation to help link together theory with the practical side in the best possible way.

Thesis project

The subject for the thesis project at Scania is selected with consideration to the student’s area of specialisation. Thesis projects are always based on the needs of the business and gives students the opportunity to show off their personal accomplishments.



Aimed at those who currently studying for a degree such as a Master of Science in Engineering or Information Systems or other relevant areas. Your specialisation could for example be in Data, IT, Engineering Physics, systems, Electronics and Mechatronics (Engineering or Electronics), Computer Engineering, Information systems, Computer Science, or Industrial Engineering and Management with a focus on data or software technology.


Scania Student Intro System/IT gives you an insight into how we drive the shift towards a sustainable transport system by utilizing the power of software and data in all areas. The goal being to minimize the impact on the environment from transports.

For example, our Internet of Things platform must support the future transport and needs to be efficient both on an economically and environmentally conscious way. To solve that, we see the key is the development of for example autonomous vehicles, safety, security, electrification and the collection and analysis of big data.

Scania Student Intro Mechanical gives you an insight into how the development of highly optimized commercial vehicles and transport solutions contributes to a more sustainable future. Our vehicles supports both urban and long distance transports as well as mining and construction worldwide and needs to be efficient both in an economically and environmentally conscious way. To solve that we see the key is development of for example autonomous vehicles and optimised design within areas such as fuel economy, safety, reliability and comfort. Efficient product development of market leading solutions has been one of Scania’s core areas for more than 125 years – and still is!


Scania Student Intro finishes with the completion of the thesis. This milestone is celebrated with an end-of-programme ceremony and the distribution of diplomas.
