You will follow the process from goods reception to consuming assembly station. Scania Internship Production have a few number of positions within this sub group.


The Machining area consists of two sub groups:

  • Machining: You will be a part of the machining processes for transmission or engine components. 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: You’ll be part of a maintenance team. Maintenance means both proactive and reactive work to keep the process equipment up and running as well as optimizing cost. You will be part of Scania Industrial Maintenance. Scania Internship Production have a few number of positions within this sub group.
