Master's thesis projects contribute to Saab's talent supply

There are currently over 100 students writing Master's theses at Saab. For Saab, it is extremely important to bring in students in order to strengthen our future talent supply. Master's thesis students from our workplaces throughout Sweden gathered in Linköping to learn more about Saab as a place to work, to exchange experiences and network.

Every year, Saab sets a target (this year it was 150) for the number of Masters students it will take in. The key advantage for Saab is tapping into the skills and innovative thinking of the next generation. At the same time, the students have the opportunity to put their knowledge into practice, reducing the gap between studies and work We interviewed some of the students to get their impressions of the program to date.
