Tuesday March 6 LKABs President CEO Lars-Eric Aaro was here to meet with students from the Soil and Rock direction at the Civil Engineering Programme.
Lars-Eric told me about himself and his way from rookie mining engineer at LTU in 1982 as CEO of Sweden's most profitable company, LKAB. Students were also told about LKAB, its business, products, customers and strategy.
Lars-Eric talked about everything from drills to sensors to shotcrete and pellets, and told how LKAB operates in Sweden and worldwide. The message to students was clear: you are needed in the mining and construction industries, and LKAB is an attractive, high-tech, international employers.
As civil engineering builders, students have a very broad labor market. For example working as project managers, production supervisor, foreman, engineers, or scientists. Our alumni testify to a rewarding and enjoyable educatiojn and that they made extensive use of knowledge from the programme in their current job.
- The programme include soil and rock engineering. It makes students attractive for construction of roads, railways, dams and rock plants, and in the mining industry, says Jenny Greberg.
