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 Electrical Engineering (EE) provides its students with a computing laboratory equipped with state of the art software, continuously maintained and upgraded teaching laboratories for electronic circuit design and analysis, as well as an embedded systems laboratory. The department is located in Davis Hall, which includes a 5,000 square foot, grade 1,000 cleanroom facility that enables research in nanotechnology with state-of-the-art equipment, which allows for photolithography, metal deposition and dry chemical etching.
About Our Faculty
Faculty at research universities like UB:
- teach and advise students
- perform scientific research
- serve the university, local, and professional communities
While teaching and student advising are somewhat traditional activities of a professor, scientific research endeavors are particularly significant at a research university. Professors who are active researchers contribute significantly to student education by bringing to the classroom knowledge pertaining to state of the art science and technology. Electrical Engineering currently employs over 30 full-time faculty members, many of whom participate in research in one of our 4 main areas; Signals, Communication and Networking, Solid State Electronics, Energy Systems, and Optics and Photonics.
