Excerpted from the Sweden Career Guide

According to the Association of Swedish Engineering Industries (Teknikföretagen), more than 300,000 people, or 6.5 percent of the Swedish workforce, work for engineering companies. More than half of Sweden’s export trade comes from engineering activities.

Sweden is also home to five vehicle manufacturers: Volvo Group, Volvo Cars, Scania, Saab Automobile and BAE Hägglunds. These companies have developed an ecosystem of suppliers and other partners. In addition, Sweden offers access to test environments for car manufacturers, and more than 30 vehicle manufacturers and suppliers use the Winter Test Region in Northern Sweden for winter testing and long-term road tests.
