Engineers Week brings engineering at UB into the spotlight for a week in February with a series of student-run engineering and science-themed competitions.
Each February, UB's student student engineering clubs organize a variety of programs during Engineers Week to promote interaction among participating clubs and the campus community.
Each club hosts at least one activity, with some hosting two. Clubs earn points by hosting competitions, taking part in other club’s events and for placing either first, second or third in contests.
The three groups with the highest total of points at the end of the week are awarded funds for their club budgets.

The Engineer of the Year award, presented annually by the Engineering and Applied Sciences Alumni Association, goes to a School of Engineering and Applied Sciences alumnus or closely affiliated person with distinguishing activities in alumni, community, business and/or professional affairs. It is the highest award given by the Engineering Alumni Association.
The SEAS Pledge to Professionalism Ceremony includes the Order of the Engineer and the Pledge of the Computing Professional. The Order of the Engineer is a fellowship of engineers that emphasizes pride and responsibility in the engineering profession. Senior engineering students take an “Obligation of the Engineer” oath together, and receive a ceremonial ring. The Pledge of the Computing Professional is intended to promote and recognize the ethical and moral behavior of graduates of computing-related degree programs as they transition to careers of service to society.
