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.

Students are encouraged to participate in work experience classes and research opportunities. Independent study, internships, and co-op experiences are all available. Students can obtain internships and job experiences through UB's Career Services. The Experiential Learning Network (ELN) serves as a clearing house for information regarding undergraduate research opportunities.

Extracurricular Activities

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is home to more than thirty engineering clubs and organizations. 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. Each club competes in National Engineers Week events such as a paper bridge competition, rocket launches, Battle Bots and more. Student club members also attend both regional and national conferences.
