While UB students are enjoying their mid-semester break, the university will play host to local high school students for Science Exploration Day.


The rankings are based on surveys of administrators at more than 1,970 programs and more than 16,500 academics and professionals.


Researchers will tackle climate change, chemical exposures among schoolchildren and developing more efficient semiconductors.

Biomedical engineers combine the problem solving ability of engineers with the knowledge of the biological and medical fields to develop new solutions for improving human health, health care, and quality of life for all people.

Chemical engineering concerns the design, scale-up, and operation of chemical processes, and the understanding and design of technologically useful materials. Chemical engineers use these same skills to understand and manipulate natural processes, such as in biological systems.

Our highly respected research programs generate the knowledge, tools and leadership needed to address society's largest and most challenging problems in the natural and built environments.

Our combination of computer science and computer engineering reflects our commitment to a modern integrated environment for research and education in computing.

From smart phones to smart cars to green appliances, electrical engineers turn knowledge into reality.

Our faculty engage in research in the areas of communications and signals processing, nanoelectronics and photonics and energy systems, creating the knowledge that is needed to solve the problems we face today.

Industrial engineers apply scientific, mathematical and computer techniques to design, model, analyze and improve complex systems.

We prepare students to become effective engineers by enhancing their technical expertise, exposing them to critical issues, and providing them with tools to deal with these issues confidently.

The Department of Materials Design and Innovation (MDI) is a forward-leaning, interdisciplinary initiative that will address regional and national demand for new materials that accelerate research and education in advanced manufacturing and biotechnology. 

MAE is one of the broader engineering disciplines. Mechanical engineers are involved in research and development, design and manufacturing. Aerospace engineering includes the traditional aeronautics and astronautics applications, as well as aerospace-related component development and vehicle and propulsion system design.
