Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students is a student union and work to safeguard and monitor the students of the Faculty of Science and Technology, SciTech, interests in different matters concerning their education.
UTN's vision is that all work that takes place regarding the improvments of our education should be close to the students involved. As a result of this, UTN's highest decision-making authority, The councils, all decisions are taken by students that represent their section.
During one year, four students works full-time with the maintaining of student-educational interests at the faculty, along with the representatives from each section, they help all SciTech-students. They help you with everything from errant course administrators, poor work environments, information about exchange studies and to get a better work related to your program. Want to know more about what they can help you specifically with, read more here.
It is our members and students that makes UTN, all activities and all hard work is made by students for students, and it is what keeps us going forward. Each year, eleven students work full-time at the Union, but beyond those, more than 1,000 students are involved annually, on a voluntary basis to carry out all of the unions projects. Among some of these projects are for example The River rafting during last of April, one of the Uppsala city's main events, The career fair Utnarm, The Puzzle Hunt Rally, Receptions, prom and graduation parties.
It is our members who are UTN and it's your opinions that moves us forward, not only as a union, but together we can make sure we get a world leading education in one of Sweden's finest and best Universitys!
