Engineers Week

February 19-25, 2017 | Various locations | UB's North Campus

All the clubs participate in Bot wars, which is the marquee event of engineering week.

Engineers Week brings engineering at UB into the spotlight for a week in February, where students can see what's going on in the engineering school. The week features a series of engineering and science-themed competitions and events.

The event is hosted by UB’s student engineering clubs, and programs are held to promote interaction among participating clubs and the campus.

Each club organizes at least one event, 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 four 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.
