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 Halls.
Together, these buildings form an outstanding educational and research facility, comprising
275,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is housed in Davis Hall. Faculty
offices, teaching assistant consultation space, and research laboratories are located on all
floors of Davis Hall. Additional teaching laboratories are housed in Baldy, Bonner and Bell
Halls. Course lectures are scheduled in various buildings across the north campus.
The faculty members of the department, all of whom have national and international
reputations in their fields, are involved in research projects that have a variety of
special contracts. Many have also received research funding from corporations such as Cisco,
Google, IBM, Intel, Kodak, Microsoft, Nokia and Xerox.
These projects include research in:
- algorithms and theory
- augmentative technology for the handicapped
- computer networks and distributed systems
- computer security and information assurance
- computer vision and information visualization
- data integration and databases
- high performance and grid computing
- cyber infrastructure and computational science
