Sweden needs more engineers

The need for technical skills has never been greater, and the competition for engineers is intensifying. In order to cope with future challenges and recruitment needs, more young people need to choose a higher technical education.

Tekniksprånget is a paid internship program of four months that inspires and motivates more young people to apply for a higher technical education. Through the internship, they gain insight into what an engineer works with and a vision for their studies. The program is conducted every semester (fall/spring).

Since 2012, over 6000 young people have done internships through Tekniksprånget and half of them are women. We know today that Tekniksprånget gets more young people to apply for a higher technical education and motivates them to complete their studies to a greater extent than their classmates who have not completed Tekniksprånget.

To be without Tekniksprånget would be like losing an arm.
