Enroll in engineering and computer science courses this summer at the largest university in the State University of New York system and enjoy all that the Buffalo-Niagara region has to offer.
Studying at the University at Buffalo for a summer session provides a short-term opportunity to experience everything a major research university and the Buffalo-Niagara region have to offer. It's a great way to sample UB's many opportunities and then return home or continue on for degree study.
Per visa requirements, international students must enroll in 6 credits of study.
To learn more about non-degree study for international students, visit UB International Admissions.
Courses offered during the summer semester are made available in early January at UBThisSummer. Students may choose to take one course in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a second course offered by another academic unit.
Our students and faculty engage in fundamental research and pioneer new technologies that address big challenges faced by society, with research expenditures totaling 74 million US dollars annually.
To meet the 6 credit enrollment minimum, summer students may apply to participate in 3 credits of hands-on research in addition to a formal course. Participants will utilize modern research labs and receive mentorship from faculty members recognized internationally for their research.
These selective opportunities are reserved for students entering their senior year in the fall. To learn more about available opportunities, please complete the SEAS Summer Research Interest Form below.
