Speed up your business knowledge together with us

Thesis Work at Volvo Group

Volvo Group has a long and successful tradition of working on thesis projects together with students from universities across the globe. We offer the opportunities to make your ideas come true, and to learn alongside the sharpest minds in your field. A Volvo thesis project can be a great step forward in your career, and also the start of a long relationship with us.

Tutoring thesis workers comes natural to us. Many of us have done our own thesis projects – some of us even here at Volvo Group. We understand the challenges you face, and take pride in answering your questions.

Doing Volvo thesis work often involves the opportunity to be on site. Not only does that give us a better understanding of your skills; you will get to know us better as well. We believe that a strong relationship leads to better thesis projects for all parties.

Every year, we collaborate with students on a number of theses around the world. In Sweden, we run a dedicated thesis program called ACCELERATE. Thesis projects outside of this program are posted on our job portal. We offer projects on different levels – Master thesis, Bachelor thesis and PhD thesis. If you do not find a project suitable for your area of interest, we are open to define other opportunities together with you.
