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.
Five combined BS/MBA programs are offered in conjunction with the School of Management. BA, BS, and BS/MS degrees in computer science are offered through the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. A BS degree in engineering physics is offered jointly with the Department of Physics.
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.
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences occupies six buildings on UB's north campus: Bell, Bonner, Davis, Furnas, Jarvis and Ketter Hall. Barbara and Jack Davis Hall is the newest building, which opened in 2011 and features an environmentally friendly design and construction.
Together, these buildings form an outstanding educational and research facility, comprising 275,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.
The CBE Department has three undergraduate laboratories featuring exciting experiments that give hands-on experience directly relating to students' engineering science and design courses in their third and fourth years. They include gas- and liquid-phase reactions; process operations such as heat exchange, distillation, gas absorption, liquid extraction, and humidification/cooling; bioreactors and bioprocesses; and process control. Students also use advanced mathematical modeling and process simulation software in state-of-the-art computer labs in Furnas Hall.
Faculty are very active in education and research and are well recognized within and outside the university for their accomplishments. Distinctions include four recipients of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, seven National Science Foundation Young Investigator awards, three members of the National Academy of Engineering, a recipient of the National Medal of Science (the National Medal provides the nation's highest scientific honor), as well as numerous other national research and teaching awards. Our faculty ranks also include two SUNY Distinguished Professors, two SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professors, and two UB Distinguished Professors.
