Scania Student Intro

Week 10: Half time-Presentation

Time flies! We have been working for 10 weeks but it feels like we just started and on Tuesday we’re going to have our half time-presentation and talk about our findings so far. We have spent most of our time writing an algorithm so we can use an associative classifier. Last week we finished it, […]

Week 3: moving forward

So, week three just passed and we’re moving forward. Slowly forward, but yes, forward. I actually thought we would be way ahead of where we’re standing at the moment and it’ kind of frustrating. As I wrote last time, I’m very aware of the fact that this is a part of the thesis, to figure […]

At first I did not feel particularly excited about going back to studying after having such a good time working at Scania during the summer. I felt that I had got accustomed to working with real projects at a real company rather than […]

Longing for production experience

Hi everyone, For me this summer is very much about getting a sense of what it is like to work at Scania. Therefore I have arranged many study visits at different Scania factories and departments, as well as lunch meetings with Scania employees to learn about their experiences from within the company. These events all […]

How to find a Master Thesis Topic

As SSI-students, most of us will be writing our master thesis at Scania, it’s a part of the programme. This means that we have to find a topic (just like everyone else). There is only one problem, to decide. And to know what we can choose from. I have to tell you, it’s a jungle […]
