Experiential Learning

Enhancing Academics Learning Through Real-World Experience

The goal of experiential learning is to offer students a greater understanding of their options as they decide on their post-UB careers, and increase their preparedness for entering the engineering profession. Program graduates often say that these experiences gave them a competitive advantage during their job search and facilitated a smoother transition to full-time employment.

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences places significant emphasis on real world experience. Experiential learning initiatives include:

  • Engineering Intramurals
  • Internships
  • Engineering Senior Design Expo
  • Senior Design Capstone Course
  • Tinkering
