Meet the Atlas Copco Summer Interns 2016

Hedvig Ahlgren – Construction Technique


“I really felt that I was able to apply lots of what I’ve learned in school into my internship. This program has given me confidence that I will do well in my last year in school. I’ll be doing my thesis at the Atlas Copco Construction Tools division in Kalmar. It feels fun to actually implement something this time as opposed to observing and doing pre-studies, like I did during the summer. I really want to encourage people to apply to the summer internship. It is a huge opportunity to be exposed to an international environment in this way.”

“It has been a true experience! It is always fun seeing a new part of the world and experiencing new cultures and people.

I will be doing my thesis project at Atlas Copco and I feel like I have gotten a great connection with my mentor here in Stockholm. I would really recommend others to apply for the summer internship!”

Sarah Tuhkanen – Compressor Technique


“The most fun part about the internship was that I got to meet so many different people, and they have been very open minded. I learned a lot from them! I thought it would be difficult to enter the organization as a young female but people were more than happy to talk to me and to share their knowledge. This is the first job I have had that is relevant for my education, and it has been incredibly useful. It was a good thing that there were several of us doing the internship at the same time. We have been in contact throughout the summer and have supported each other.”

Tara Salehi – Group Internal Audit


“The program was really great. The best thing was the opportunity to go abroad and to experience a different culture, different values etc. My project tasks varied a lot and therefore I had different goals to work towards. Every day I met new challenges and new things that I needed to learn. The goals are set for you, but how you reach them is up to you. You learn a lot by having to plan the projects and how to reach your goals by yourself.”
