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!

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

See you in the front seat //Caster

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!

We at Caster are excited that so many Nollan signed up for our event and that the interest in it was so high. Now on monday (10/9) at 18:00 our door will open up for the participants and we are looking forward to a challenging case night together with them. Afterwards they will be able to try out both our simulator and a VR rig while we bring out some fika, fruit and snacks.

See you in the front seat.

Now we are going to start introducing our four trainees that have become board members. They have worked in pair with two different and interesting trainee projects, a new vehicle model and a new card reader. We will introduce the first pair to day and the other later on.

Firstly we’d like to introduce Oskar.
Oskar is just now finishing his first year at the Mechanical Engineering program and worked on a new vehicle model as his trainee project. As a board member he will continue with making the finalizing touches on his trainee project and implementing new vehicle models for different projects and educational purposes.

The second of our trainees is Christian.
Christian is at the end of his second year at mechanical engineering and have together with Oskar worked on the new vehicle model. After the summer break he will work with vehicle dynamics, finalize the trainee project and keep on developing new vehicle models.

Their project
Their trainee project have been implementing a new vehicle model, the Ferrari F40. By doing research, utilizing their studies and receiving help from other members they have created a drivable car almost fully ready for the simulator. They only have small finishing touches on the physics and a paintjob left before being all done.
