Read on for recommendations of resources provided at UT by Harshita from the Society of Women Engineers (SWE).
Q: What are some useful resources on campus for students (engineering and non-engineering)?
A: Hi! This is a great question that everyone at UT should know the answer to! I’ll break it down into three categories: academic, health, and day-to-day. I’ve used nearly every resource on here and have found them to be very useful!
Drop-in tutoring on the first floor of the EER* for lower division math, chemistry, and physics classes and lower division engineering mechanics and computational engineering classes! (especially helpful for my fellow ASE/COE majors!)
* will be online for this semester - click on the link for zoom links!
23,000 square feet of makerspaces for designing and building everything from solar cars and satellites to robots and biomedical sensors
Assistance with career counseling and finding internships/externships/co-ops through their online database
Sanger Learning Center (SLC)
