Community Engagement

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 around them.  

BEAM is a cooperative educational enrichment program that prepares inner city, minority, female and other under-represented students for careers in science, engineering, and technology.
The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) al­lows high school students to explore the state-of-practice of today’s transportation.
Tech Savvy is a daylong science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) career conference designed to attract girls to these fields and to inform families about STEM education and careers.

Join us this summer at Tinker, a unique, one-week summer engineering camp for high school girls! Participants will have the opportunity to explore the diverse fields of engineering.


UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and National Grid team up each summer to sponsor a four-day engineering workshop for Western New York students entering their sophomore or junior year in high school.

Hands-on science experiments at UB together with in-classroom science lessons form the basis of the UB-National Grid-Westminster Community Charter School partnership.
