Tobias Englund

Educational background

He has a German Dipl.-Ing. Univ. Degree (equivalent to a Master’s degree) from Technische Universität München (TUM) in mechanical engineering with focus on materials and production technology. During an Erasmus-period at Chalmers in Gothenburg he met his wife, which led to a permanent move to Sweden. During his studies he had the opportunity for internships at different companies within the automotive sector, which raised his interest in efficient and highly automated factories. 

Work Experience

His professional career started 2013 with his diploma thesis at Sandvik Mining Rock Tools in Sandviken, a leading supplier of high quality tools for mining and construction. Since then, he has been with Sandvik, working in an innovative environment with a fantastic team. First he got employed as production engineer but since 2016 he has been working as Method Development Engineer focusing on long-term production development. Future factories with a high degree of automation are fascinating to him, so thanks to IndTech he can dig deeper into digitalization and enjoy both working with industry and academia.
