About Us

Welcome to Utnarm 2021

What is Utnarm?

Utnarm is Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students' Career Fair, held on Thursday week 45 every year.

During an intense day, the students get the opportunity to meet with companies and organizations from multiple business areas and industries. It's a great platform for students and industry to meet and discuss future thesis, summer jobs and employment.

At Utnarm, SciTech's students get the opportunity to find inspiration, motivation and valuable contacts for the future. The fair is early in November and is preceded by two weeks filled with exciting events to prepare students for what is expected of them when they have graduated.

The fair is usually attended by more than 100 exhibiting companies and organizations who are there to meet interesting students. 

The fair will this year be held on a virtual platform and can be found here. Create an account by using your student email and visit the fair from wherever you are.

The People Behind Utnarm

My name is Felix Kåhsström and I am the Project manager at Utnarm.

As Project manager, I plan the project from the ground up, starting a year before the event. I am also legally and economically responsible for the event. One of the most important and fun aspects of the job is to appoint and lead the committee! The project is only as good as its team and this year we have a great one!

I study my last year in the master program in engineering physics. As I work with Utnarm full time and it is my second year, I have had a long break from my studies.

I applied because I saw it as a fantastic opportunity to try out project management in a forgiving environment and to practice leading people. I have also visited Utnarm every year since I started studying and have always thought it is an amazing project!

Hello!
My name is Moa and I have a position called convenor. In this position I am in charge of the sustainability work of Utnarm. I am also in charge of the committee meetings with the project manager as well as the internal communication and team building.

I study the 3rd/4th year in the environmental and water engineering program. My studies are one of the reasons I wanted to work with Utnarm. I thought it would be fun to apply my knowledge from my program while learning more about environmental work. Outside of school I play elite-level american football and really enjoy working in large teams. I know the challenges with communication and thought I would like to develop those skills as well.

My name is Prajakta Dengale.

I am the head of Virtual Event.

In my position, I’m responsible for the virtual event, which means I look after the digital platform on which we have the career fair.

I am currently studying my Master’s in Industrial Management & Innovation.

Ever since I moved to Uppsala, I was looking for ways to get involved with a student organization and expand my network. When the positions for Utnarm opened, I was very excited to apply. I see this as an opportunity to work and network with different students and make friends!

Hi!
My Name is Hanna Åkermark and I am the second ‘Head of Enterprise’ at Utnarm 2021.

The Head of Enterprise is the person who is in charge of the contact with the companies, the emailing and the phone calling. As the Head of Enterprise you coordinate the registration of the companies (along with IT-admin) from initial- to final registration.

I was appointed a few weeks after the work had already begun so this spring has mainly been about catching up.

I study STS while also trying to finish up my bachelor in construction engineering.

To make a difference is the main reason I applied to Utnarm. I like to connect people with one another, and I wanted to be a part of creating a link between university life and the business community. Not just for myself but also for everyone else visiting Utnarm - especially the science students.

I have been in other, smaller committees before joining Utnarm, and after those I felt like I wanted to challenge myself with a larger committee.

To be able go behind the scenes of such an important event as Utnarm felt

like it could be both educational and fun (and, of course, getting to know new

people).

I make sure that all the information is easily accessible, easy to understand and that you (the students) are satisfied with our work and content on social media and the website.

I´m currently studying my second year at the bachelor’s program in molecular biology here in Uppsala. It´s a lot of fun and I love every second of it!

I applied to Utnarm since I missed being engaged in student activities and wanted more friends outside my area of study. It is one of the best things I have ever done and thanks to Utnarm I have gotten more involved in the student activities and the union (UTN).
