SEAS Experiential Learning Programs (ELP) help students gain engineering experience that complements the classroom. A major focus is hands-on projects sourced from industry and the community, and self-defined projects. The ELP continuum includes 4 major elements: Tinkering, Intramurals, Internships/Co-Ops and Senior Design.
Students should participate in work experience classes and research opportunities. Independent study, internships, and co-op experiences are available. Students can obtain internships and job experiences through UB's Career Services. The Experiential Learning Network (ELN) is a clearing house for undergraduate research opportunities.
Undergraduate majors regularly become involved in the research activities of the faculty. This can involve independent study, part-time employment, and/or full-time employment during the summer. Other opportunities include Tutorial Classes, Undergraduate Research, Internships and Co-op Opportunities, and Independent Study.
