The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is home to more than thirty engineering clubs. In addition to networking with professors and professionals, engineering clubs actively carry out research projects, compete in competitions, 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.

Many civil engineering students are active in the UB student chapter of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). The club aims to encourage the development of a professional consciousness and to afford an opportunity for civil engineering students to practice working together effectively. Students participate in the ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition, the AISC Steel Bridge Competition and the EERI Seismic Design Competition. Students interested in the construction industry can join the student chapter of AGC (Associated General Contractors of America).
