Academic Opportunities

School of Engineering and Applied Sciences students have numerous opportunities to participate in research, experiential learning programs, student clubs and organizations, and extracurricular activities that complement and enhance their educational experience.

Experiential Learning

The Linguistics department offers a teaching internship, where interns are placed in the Buffalo public schools as teacher's aides or tutors. Venues include Spanish-English bilingual schools, urban elementary schools, and international schools. Interns can also work with Literacy Volunteer Tutors or as ESL tutors in the Linguistics department.

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 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

Engineering today is a global profession. Students can pursue educational opportunities in other countries while maintaining their course of study and timeline to graduation. A summer Engineering Study Abroad Program provides students with the opportunity to travel with a UB faculty member to Troyes, France. UB is also a member of the Global Exchange program for engineering students. All programs are run by UB Study Abroad Programs.

Extracurricular Activities

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences has 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. Student club members also attend both regional and national conferences.
