Scania Student Intro

Scania Student Intro

This programme is aimed at students who will soon graduate with either a Master of Science in Engineering or in Information Systems.

It’s a unique introductory programme with two specialisations, and includes a summer job, thesis project and a mentor within Scania at Södertälje. The aim is to give students the opportunity to get to know Scania and to develop contacts within the company.

Scania Student Intro is run in Sweden and conducted in Swedish.

Contents and structure

The programme runs from the fourth academic year right up to graduation, with applications taking place during semesters 7-8. You must have at least one year of your studies remaining at the time you apply.

Weekend Activities

The group meets on two occasions each semester to work together on selected case studies and focus on team building. Instruction takes the form of seminars with the course leaders combining lectures with active discussions. This provides participants within the group with the opportunity to get to know one another and the course leaders. Participants will also get the chance to test drive Scania trucks and buses.

Summer Jobs

Scania Student Intro relies on a connection between studies and assignments within the operation. Summer work at Scania is part of the programme and participants are offered summer jobs 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.

Completion

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.

Possible employment

Specialisations

Systems/IT

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.

Summer job and thesis projects are carried out at Research and Development.

Scania Student Intro Systems/IT gives you an insight into how the development of software contributes to a more sustainable future due to minimal impact on the environment from transports. 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 to development of for example autonomous vehicles, safety, security, electrification and the collection and analysis of big data. Software development is a central part of R&D’s core areas and its impact on future functions is increasing at all time.

During your time in Scania Student Intro you will meet numerous exciting and skilled people who enjoy working as system developer and architects, test developers and project managers.

Mechanical

Aimed at those who are currently studying for a Master of Science in Engineering within areas such as Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Engineering Physics, Design and Product Development, Energy and Environment, or Industrial Engineering and Management. Summer jobs and thesis projects are carried out at Research and Development.

Scania Student Intro Mechanical gives you an insight into how development contributes to more fuel efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles, that are also safer, have a better driver environment and also perform better. Mechanical design is a central part of Scania’s product development. Mechanical design allows us to assess and test components and entire vehicles across our entire product program. Development is based on Scania’s modular system. During your time in Scania Student Intro, you will meet numerous exciting and skilled people who enjoy working within product development, as well as computing engineers, designers, test engineers, and project managers.
