Advance yourself with SWE!
Hello and welcome to Advancement! We focus on promoting self-development and leadership within SWE members while creating projects and programs that impact the entire student population and our local communities. The concept of Advancement is first introduced in Society SWE's tagline: Aspire / Advance / Achieve. Advancement is an ever-changing branch designed to respond to the ever-changing needs of our members. For FY22, we strive to increase the mindfulness and self-confidence of our members and place emphasis on the importance of both mental and physical health. Our branch strives to help our members better themselves as humans, not just engineers. Additionally this year, Advancement is excited to expand its “Know and Grow” events, which provides a space for members to learn about and discuss relevant current events and social issues.

SWE Test Bank
Need some practice to help you prepare for an upcoming test or curious to see what your new professor’s test format looks like? Check out our SWE Test Bank as a resource for many classes at UT.
Finals Care Packages
To wish our members the best of luck on finals, SWE packs end-of-semester finals care packages filled with snacks and goodies! The final care packages are available for pick up the last week of classes each semester from the SWE Office (EER 2.620).
Advancement works to educate and encourage general members on lifestyle choices that are practical and reduce personal waste production, as well as mitigating and handling the general waste production of the UT SWE chapter.
Want to go to the gym but don’t know how to start? Want to work out regularly but feel like you just don’t have the time? You’re in luck! This year the Advancement branch will be introducing regularly scheduled yoga and other workout days to help you become the best you can be. In-person physical health events will not be happening due to restrictions from COVID-19.
College is stressful, and sometimes it is easy to forget that mental health is just as important as physical health. Advancement aims to promote mindfulness and self awareness through various workshops, including regularly scheduled painting days and DIY spa self care days.
