An opportunity to earn money, make contacts, and get a head start in your career. The application opens on April 16th and closes on May 6th.

Welcome to Tekniksprånget

Inspiring future engineers

Would you like to develop the cities of the future, create innovative software, or build an international career? Engineering is a creative profession where you are involved in driving development forward. It is also a profession with great opportunities, whether you want to work with the big picture or focus on your favorite subject.

Expanded target audience

Economists can now apply for Tekniksprånget

Starting in 2024, the government has tasked the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences with expanding the target audience for Tekniksprånget. This means that even those studying economics in high school can apply for internships as engineers.

– I hope that young economists with a keen interest in technology see this as an exciting opportunity to broaden their horizons and further build experience for the future," says Johan Forssell, member of the steering group in Tekniksprånget, IVA member, and former CEO of Investor.
