The programme runs from the fourth academic year 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. During these meetings, students will get to know the company’s operations through lectures combined with active discussions, case studies and study visits. You will also get to meet several employees and hear about working at Scania. Participants will also get the chance to test drive Scania trucks and buses.

Summer Jobs

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 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.
