Volvo Engineering Student Concept

Young bright minds with a passion for engineering are crucial to Volvo Cars’ future. That is why we welcome curious engineering students to summer jobs and thesis work in Sweden, through the Volvo Engineering Student Concept (VESC). 

At the Manufacturing Engineering (ME) organisation, we prepare the manufacturing process for our new cars. We make sure that a new Volvo can be built in any of our factories around the world, and under the same excellent quality standards regardless of where the car is built. ME offers summer jobs to students with a Bachelor degree that are aiming for their Master studies. As a Volvo Engineering Student at ME you get two years of summer work, an individual mentor during your entire time at the company and support during your thesis work.

Meanwhile, at our Research and Development (R&D) organisation we transform ideas for the future of mobility into innovations for our next generation of Volvos. Here we develop the latest technologies in safety, connectivity and electrification, to create some of the best cars in the world. At R&D, we offer summer jobs to students between the first and second year of their Master studies. We provide you with individual mentorship during the autumn and support during your thesis work.

The Volvo Engineering Student Concept places you at the heart of Volvo Cars’ innovation work. So apply now and come create the future of mobility together with us!

The application for the upcoming VESC programme opens spring 2020. More information is then to be found in our Job Search Portal.
