A few words from
previous thesis writers

“I wrote my thesis for Atlas Copco Mining and Rock Excavation Technique and particularly the Rock Drilling Tools division and their production unit in Fagersta. I supported the quality department by investigating how the traceability could be improved throughout the production chain, as well as how the current situation affects the overall quality assurance and performance. It has been a great opportunity where a lot of knowledge has been shared and acquired, both professionally and personally.”

Lisa Grunning, KTH Royal Institute of Technology

"I conducted my thesis at Atlas Copco in Tierp, where I investigated the possibility of increasing the process efficiency in the manufacture of handheld power tools. I was able to apply my abilities in analyzing and solving problems which I developed during the period. The project led me to a permanent job at Atlas Copco as a software developer in Nacka, but above all, I gained experience of working for an international company and insights on how valuable it is with structure and planning my work."

Alexander Arvidsson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Kista
