(HEGIS: 04.00 BIOLOGICAL SCI UNCLASSFD, CIP: 26.1103 Bioinformatics)

Academic Opportunities

Students should contact their departmental advisor for inquiries regarding internships, independent study and undergraduate research opportunities.

Experiential Learning

SEAS Experiential Learning Programs (ELP) help students gain engineering experience that complements the classroom. A major focus is hands-on projects sourced from industry and the community, and self-defined projects. The ELP continuum includes 4 major elements: Tinkering, Intramurals, Internships/Co-Ops and Senior Design. Students are encouraged to get involved right away.

Students should participate in work experience classes and research opportunities. Independent study, internships, and co-op experiences are available. Students can obtain internships and job experiences through UB's Career Design Center. The Experiential Learning Network (ELN) is a clearing house for undergraduate research opportunities.

Study Abroad

Extracurricular Activities

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is home to more than thirty engineering clubs and organizations. These clubs focus on many different facets of the engineering field and allow students to gain hands-on experience of the material they learn in the classroom. In addition to networking with professors and professionals, engineering clubs actively carry out research projects, compete in competitions throughout the nation, and participate in community events. Most notably, the engineering clubs participate in the National Engineers Week in February of each year, where each club competes in events such as a paper bridge competition, rocket launches, Battle Bots and more. Student club members also attend both regional and national conferences.

Honors and Awards

School of Engineering and Applied Sciences students regularly receive accolades for their research activities, participation in national competitions, design projects, internships and more. They participate in the Chi Epsilon and Tau Beta Pi honor societies, and are frequent recipients of nationally-competitive scholarships and awards.
