At Chalmers, we strive to educate engineers with great understanding of technology.
Based at the Mechanical Engineering Programme, Caster aim to find ways in which we can develop this vision.
We believe that the best engineers are the ones who understand the practical applications of the theory taught in class.
Therefore, we continuously work to find ways in which we can combine the two in the most exciting way possible.
In our facility you’ll find a lounge where upcoming engineers can meet and share ideas.
You’ll also find a number of computers which can be used for technical development or course work.
However, maybe most notable, we also have a driving simulator.
By using this machine, we allow students to become users of their design, linking engineering to the customer experience.
You’ll encounter it in a variety of course assignments, theses or simply as part of one of our spare time projects.
Come by and visit, go for a test drive and maybe, you’ll be the next recruit we’re looking for!

We are once again happy to announce that we are welcoming four new trainees to our team. They will get to know the organization and find out more about which parts of Caster that interests them the most.
Johannes and Hampus will be working with a new card reader for logging of data, while Christian and Oskar will be creating a new vehicle model for the simulator.
We hope they will enjoy their time with us!
Welcome Johannes, Hampus, Christian and Oskar to Caster! ... See MoreSee Less

The Caster team is once again growing! We are very proud to introduce two new trainees to the Caster board. Say hi to Albin Lindmark and Frida Nordlund!
Frida is based at Biotechnology, working through her second year of studies. During her trainee period she will be focusing on marketing and shaping the future of Casters ways of communication.
Albin is a third year student at the mechanical engineering program with an interest in dynamics and programming. He will be working with tuning vehicle models in real time.
We wish them the best of luck with their ongoing trainee projects. 🏁 ... See MoreSee Less

Friday morning the first year students of the mechanical engineering program received their first assignment in the course Programming in MATLAB. Caster feels very excited as this assignment is a collaboration together with us! The students are challenged with writing a code for a gear box which should make a drag racing car as fast as possible. The 10 students with the fastest gear boxes will get the opportunity to visit Caster and try out their gear box in the simulator.
At their introduction, Håkan held an inspiring lecture about MATLAB usage and possibilities with reflections from his own experiences. All assignments that Caster is part of is co-developed between the course and the students of Caster. For this assignments, Håkan is actually one of the creators of the code base.

Thank you Håkan and good luck to all students! ... See MoreSee Less

Winners of the case celebrating - Racing style
The day before yesterday we had an exciting evening together with the new students from the mechanical engineering program. They all participated in a case called "Race Weekend" where the students worked in two groups. Within the groups the students where given assignments in three areas all vital for planning a race weekend; marketing, management and technical. Both groups did really well and the winning team could later celebrate with some sparkling soft drink 🍾
After the celebration it was time for some good food and of course simulator driving. Thank you everyone who participated, we hope you enjoyed the evening and look forward meeting you all again! 🏁 ... See MoreSee Less

Ronja Örtlund who has been working as education coordinator is now heading towards new challenges
after her master thesis and examination. Therefore we are very happy to welcome Tove Jensen as a new member of the board and new education coordinator!
During her trainee period Tove has worked together with Ronja and her daily work of coordinating the education. Included tasks were the second year of the vehicle dynamics lab, evaluation from the first MATLAB collaboration as well as initiating new labs for future collaboration with other courses. All in the process of getting to know the role as Education Coordinator and Caster in general.
As education coordinator Tove will be working on course collaborations as Programming in MATLAB and Vehicle Dynamics but also establish new exciting collaborations. A continuos aim for an education coordinator is how to create new opportunities for students to benefit from the simulator to improve their education. At Caster we want to give students ways to understand the practical applications of the theory taught in class better and thereby become better engineers, as we call it, Engineers in the front Seat.
Welcome Tove! ... See MoreSee Less
I really got the best successor possible! It will be really fun to follow your work and ideas and see where it will take Caster!
