At Volvo Cars, there are many ways to have an internship. In general, we promote engineering students in terms of thesis works, but we also offer a range of different types of internships in Sweden, Belgium, and China. Please take a look under Job Portal to see the available opportunities. In Sweden, Volvo Cars offers internship positions through Tekniksprånget, see below for more detail.



Thesis work

We offer a number of students the possibility to do thesis work at Volvo Car Group. This is an excellent chance for you to get an insight into the possibilities for you after graduation. 

Volvo Engineering Student Concept

At Volvo Cars, we endeavour to support engineering students. So every year we offer a number of opportunities for students to experience the Volvo Research & Development team—with a summer job between your first and second years of Master’s studies, a mentor during the fall, and thesis work in the final semester of your studies. The recruitment process for the concept starts every February/March, and the programme starts in the summer.

Summer job

Every summer we offer a number of students from various backgrounds the opportunity to work during the summer holiday. Volvo Car Group has activities in several places and we are staffing for both factory and office work. Ads will be published under Job Portal.
