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!

Last thursday Caster was invited to CPAC, our main partner, for an after work. The evening started with dinner at their office and an inspirational speech from their president Richard Berkling. Afterwards we got a tour around the office where they talked about their areas of expertise, such as autonomous vehicle software for trucks, monitor systems for construction equipment and drive by wire systems for boats. After the tour we had the opportunity to talk to some of their employes to learn more about the company.

It was a great and insightful night which we thank CPAC for!

Caster is continually looking for new board members and are therefore open to spontaneous applications. If you send in an application we will set up an interview where we talk about what you can bring to Caster and what Caster can bring to you.

After the interview, when we have a good idea of what you wanna do, we will find a project for your trainee period. This is a three month period where you get to try how it is to be a part of the board.

After those three months, if you chose to stay at Caster and become a board member, you can chose to continue with projects similar to you trainee project or maybe change track within Caster if you want to try something else.

If you wanna apply or have questions you can contact us here on Facebook or by email info@casterchalmers.se

After one and a half year here at Caster our beloved Tove will leave us for new adventures. She have not only taken care of the collaboration between Caster and the different courses we are affiliated with in an incredible way but also contributed to a warm and positive mood.

She will hand over her duties to Alvin and travel to Milan for an exchange semester, and we wish her the best of luck in her time there.

Alvin is our latest addition to the team of board members. He studies his third year at mechanical engineering and have as a trainee worked with evaluating different courses at Chalmers to see if a collaboration with it would be possible. Continuing on he will as mentioned above shoulder the responsibility for our current different collaborations with existing courses and new ones.

To day we introduce the next pair of trainees to take on the role as board members.

Hampus:
As a third year student in mechanical engineering with an interest in programing, we have another of our new board members Hampus.
As a board member Hampus will continue on working with software development and introduce a coding convention within Caster to keep the code easy to read for new board members in the future.

Johannes:
Johannes comes from the IT program here at Chalmers and has just started his second year. With him from IT he is able to bring new tools and ideas to our team. He has just taken the role as system developer, event coordinator and head of social media here at Caster as a board member.

Their project
As trainees Hampus and Johannes have been working on a new improved Card reader for our session database system where you can register your racing time in our database with your student union card. To get the new reader to run they have worked with soldering all the pieces together and creating new Python code for it to run on. After 3 months it’s almost finished and we look forward to see it being implemented in our system.

A big and warm welcome to our new board members, you are the future of Caster!
