“I would really encourage prospective students to look into the merit-based scholarships that UB offers and apply early. There are a lot of opportunities.”

Pursuing BS in Environmental Engineering

Upon completion of the BS environmental engineering program, Julie Powers is planning to attend graduate school in environmental engineering with a focus on water resources engineering and public health. She says the BS program’s challenging classes have really prepared her, yet the department’s helpful and friendly faculty and classmates have been there to offer support along the way.

Outside of the classroom, Powers participates in a wide range of science outreach and tutoring programs to K-12 students. She was awarded a UB Presidential Scholarship, which covers full tuition, room and board for four years of undergraduate study.
