We pursue integrative research and offer graduate training at
the frontiers of chemical engineering in three main areas:
nanoscale science and engineering, computational science and
engineering, and biochemical and biomedical engineering.
Biomedical engineers combine the problem solving ability of
engineers with the knowledge of the biological and medical fields.
They develop new solutions for improving human health, health care,
and quality of life for all people.
A new interdisciplinary graduate degree and certificate program in Computational Data Science and Engineering (CDSE) and supporting research center will train scientists and engineering to lead in these disciplines.
Home health and wellness is essential for reducing health care
costs, creating lifestyle choices that improve individual health,
and supporting independence for aging or functionally limited
The Institute of Bridge Engineering (IBE) is educating new and
mid-career individuals in emerging aspects of bridge engineering
and conducting research that can advance the state-of-the-practice
in the design and retrofit of bridges.
MCEER is dedicated to the discovery and development of new knowledge, tools and technologies that equip communities to become more disaster resilient in the face of earthquakes and other extreme events.
The Center for Industrial Effectiveness (TCIE), an elite
university extension program, connects the business community with
expert resources of the University at Buffalo’s School of
Engineering and Applied Sciences.
UB Engineering engages with the community in Buffalo and our
region through a wide variety of programs and interests.
Among these are K-12 educational activities, which all aim to
stimulate student interest in science, technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM), and to encourage their curiosity in the world
UB cultivates entrepreneurial thinking by helping new and
existing businesses innovate, prosper and grow. This approach
complements UB 2020’s goal of creating Communities of
Excellence and New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo’s Start-Up NY
