CAE Engineer

As a CAE Engineer within the group, Strength Simulation - Chassis Components, you will play an important role in driving forward the design and robustness of future Scania trucks using Finite Element Methods (FEM). Together with teams of focused design and test engineers, you will help conceive and develop durable chassis components and assemblies. The group is currently comprised of ten CAE engineers who, along with most of their clients, are situated at the Scania Technical Centre in Södertälje.

You will be expected to

  • Regularly and proactively connect with an extensive network with the R&D organisation in order to spread an understanding of the significance of durability. We put great emphasis on interpersonal skills, as you will be expected to effectively convey technical issues to colleagues and managers from many functional units.
  • From the early stages of the design process, be part of cross-functional teams and help optimise components with regards to strength, weight and cost.
  • Cooperate with test engineers, plan the development and verification of truck components and systems, utilise loads acquired from truck measurements as inputs for simulations.
  • Correlate simulations of highly dynamic systems to test results and provide support and direction to teams of design engineers based on your simulations.
  • Continually develop CAE methods with the help of new software or test data to improve efficiency and accuracy, both in-house and in collaboration with external suppliers.
  • Analyse results, prepare reports and presentations, and to effectively communicate your findings within various forums.
  • What we can offer you

  • A dynamic workplace with varied and challenging work assignments. We focus on a collaborative environment where everyone participates in driving projects forward. As a new employee you will receive the full backing and support from all team members.
  • Continual improvement and professional development of employees is a priority for us. The further education of employees, via both internal and external courses, is encouraged and supported.
  • Whatever your professional aspirations are, Scania’s varied and numerous career development pathways can help you achieve them.
  • State of the art computing resources, including the pre-processor HyperMesh and the FE solver Abaqus.
  • Requirements

    You are an engineer with a minimum of two years’ of experience within Finite Element Analysis (FEM), with an interest in vehicles and structural mechanics who will thrive in a high paced environment with both individual and collaborative work tasks where communication is key. Both practical and theoretical knowledge of mechanical systems would be an advantage. Dynamics in combination with fatigue, is particularly meritorious.
