The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers nine engineering programs leading to the degree of bachelor of science (BS) degree: aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, environmental, industrial, and mechanical engineering.
Students may pursue minors in computer science, electrical engineering, human factors engineering, manufacturing, operations research, quality engineering, and robotics, as well as a certificate in data-intensive computing.
The curricula allow students flexibility in their programs of study and encourages interaction between students and faculty. The undergraduate educational experience prepares students for professional practice and advanced study. Special programs including our experiential learning program, undergraduate research, and internship opportunities provide professional development skills and experiences and facilitate placement of our graduates in high-quality engineering positions.
About Our Facilities
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences occupies six buildings on UB's north campus: Bell, Bonner, Davis, Furnas, Jarvis, and Ketter Halls.
Together, these buildings form an outstanding educational and research facility, comprising 275,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.
The MAE Department has a strong commitment to providing modern laboratory equipment that will give our students hands-on experience with modern engineering devices, systems, and programs. The major laboratory areas for undergraduates are: properties of engineering materials, fluid and thermal sciences, dynamic systems and instrumentation, and computer-aided engineering. In addition, there are Shared Instrumentation Facilities, including the Motion Simulation Laboratory and the Digital Manufacturing Laboratory. Students can also obtain access to the Engineering Machine Shop, which has a variety of equipment that can be used for undergraduate research, projects, and student clubs.
