Skills provision is an important issue within LKAB. We therefore conduct and support activities aimed at children and young people, with the aim of arousing interest in technology and the mining sector from an early age.
Are you looking for an exciting degree project? We are looking for postgraduates in the areas of rock mechanics, mining, mineral technology, process metallurgy, agglomeration, iron production, maintenance, logistics, control, instrumentation and measurement technology. However, projects in areas such as organisation, economics, HR and purchasing are also of interest.
There are around 200 different professional roles within LKAB, which means that there are many different professions to try out during school work placement periods. Regardless of whether you are interested in working with figures, large machines or in a laboratory, we can arrange interesting and educational work placements. Some professional roles may require prior knowledge and their suitability as work placements varies depending on age, yet we welcome work placement students from Year 1 to university. Are you interested in doing a work placement at LKAB? Get in touch with our school contacts.
The LKAB Academy
Through the LKAB Academy Foundation we support development projects in mathematics and technology, from pre-school to upper secondary school, and we also support upper secondary school development projects in other educational areas. In doing so, we are helping to create attractive communities with access to a broad range of high-quality educational opportunities for children and young people.
LKAB offers study visits for secondary school students who are about to choose their upper secondary school, as well as for upper secondary students focusing on areas such as technology, mechanics and science. In conjunction with the study visits, we explain about the company, answer questions and present our operation, both above and below ground.
Upper secondary education with an LKAB profile
LKAB and the Lappland Upper Secondary School collaborate to secure the provision of skills for base industry through long-term, attractive courses in the region. This includes five upper secondary programmes, four practical and one theoretical.
