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. Barbara and Jack Davis Hall is the newest building, which opened in 2011 and features an environmentally friendly design and construction.
Together, these buildings form an outstanding educational and research facility, comprising 275,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.
The Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering houses state-of-the-art undergraduate laboratories in the areas of materials, fluid mechanics and hydraulics, and soil mechanics. The department also has undergraduate computing labs equipped with all the discipline-specific software students will use in the civil engineering program. In addition, the department is home to a world-class structural engineering and earthquake simulation laboratory, where many students participate in undergraduate research.
We have 30 full-time faculty members (all with PhD degrees) and approximately 5 adjunct faculty members. Faculty members are actively engaged in teaching, research and service and have won many honors and awards, including:
- Two SUNY Chancellor's Awards for Excellence in Teaching
- One National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award
- Two National Science Foundation CAREER Awards
- One Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Career Award
- One IBM Smarter Planet Industry Skills Innovation Award
- One SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Scholarship and Creative Activity
- Two SUNY Distinguished Professorships
- Two ASCE Newmark Medals
