The Learning Environment
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers 11 engineering programs leading to the degree of bachelor of science (BS) degree: aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, engineering science, environmental, industrial, material science, and mechanical engineering.
Seven 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. BS/MS degrees are offered through the Departments of Biomedical and Electrical Engineering. A BS degree in engineering physics is offered jointly with the Department of Physics. A BS degree in bioinformatics and computational biology is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly with the College of Arts and Sciences. Minors are offered in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Manufacturing, Robotics, Human Factors and Ergonomics Engineering, Operations Research, and Quality Engineering. Additionally, a certificate is offered in Data Intensive Computing. The Department of Materials Design and Innovation (MDI) has the only joint-accelerated Chemistry BS/MDI MS program in the nation, which allows students to complete an undergraduate and graduate degree in less than five years.
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.
About Our Facilities
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences occupies six buildings on UB's north campus: Bell, Bonner, Davis, Furnas, Jarvis, and Ketter Hall.
Together, these buildings form an outstanding educational and research facility, comprising 275,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering is located in Bonner Hall on the North Campus, although faculty in the Department are located on each of the three UB campuses. There are two primary laboratory spaces used in undergraduate education: our modern, well-equipped wet lab and dry labs that encompass over 2000 sq ft. These spaces are also available to students outside of class time for independent project work. Additionally, students have access to shared project spaces within the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Students who wish to engage in research will also find cutting-edge research labs.
About Our Faculty
With fourteen full-time faculty members and numerous other affiliated faculty members, undergraduate BME students will interact with our faculty in the classroom and through research activities. Our faculty are engaged in cutting-edge research in the areas of nanomedicine, tissue engineering, biomedical imaging and biomedical devices, among others; this research activity is translated to the classroom so that undergraduate students understand the changes occurring in the field. Additionally, students will have the opportunity to engage with our faculty in research and design projects.
The Chair and Director of Undergraduate Studies, Albert H. Titus, may be contacted by email to answer questions about the program.
