“My first impression is that Volvo Group Trucks Technology is an open-minded company that embraces diversity. Open minded also for new influences and ideas, I feel a lot of trust from my colleagues.

My closest manager’s first advice to me was “Don’t lose your freshness – dare to question us. He encourages me to question, to contribute with new ideas, and the openness I feel makes is possible for me to do that” says Solène Dulac, working with new concepts in Powertrain Engineering. “The Volvo Group is a true multicultural company, using diversity as an advantage”.

"The Engineering Graduate Program is something that I am incredibly fortunate and lucky to have been able to experience and has shaped me into the engineer and person I am today.?

Thank you all within the Engineering Graduate Program for being amazing friends and awesome people. You all were my first connections as a professional engineer, and each one of you is so unique and brings your own flavor and experiences when we meet. I have so many fond, funny, and unforgettable memories that I made during my time in the Graduate Program modules.

It was something I’ve never experienced emotionally, and something I never thought I would have gone through as an engineer."
