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

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

Some senior students are exposed to research in a senior projects course; others obtain industrial experience through local internships or co-op opportunities.

Students are encouraged to participate in work experience classes and research opportunities as part of their undergraduate experience Work experience opportunities are posted via UB's Career Services BullsEye website. Occasionally, information regarding opportunities may be distributed via the departmental listserv. In many cases, students can receive academic credit for their work experiences by participating in CE 496 Internship/Practicum.

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 Global E, an exchange program for engineering students. All programs are run by The Office of Study Abroad Programs.

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, conduct valuable experiments, 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.

See the UB Student Association webpage.

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.
