Engineers Week

February 18-24, 2018 | Various Locations | UB North Campus

All the clubs participate in Bot Wars, which is the marquee event of Engineers Week.

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.

About Engineers Week

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.



Engineers Week is sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences' Engineering Partners and the UB Student Association.

Engineer of the Year Award | Pledge to Professionalism Ceremony

Tuesday, Feb. 20 | 5:00 p.m. | Slee Hall, North Campus

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. 

Registration: Register (and size your ring for Order of the Engineer participants) and pay the registration fee of $5.00 (cash only) in 410 Bonner Hall from Monday, February 5 to Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The cost of registration and ceremony materials has been subsidized by your academic department.
