The Learning Environment

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.

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 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.
