A group of 40 enthusiastic middle school students took mock computer science courses this summer as part of the University at Buffalo’s Liberty Partnership Program’s “I Can” residential summer program.

The ACES summer camp teaches high school students about the range of jobs on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus.


Sixty high school students worked on an engineering design project and learned more about STEM careers during the annual UB/National Grid Leadership Camp.


A new optical device, developed by UB engineers, could help detect drugs, bomb-making chemicals and more.

UB’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences gave its highest honor, the Dean’s Award for Achievement, to Ann Wegrzyn (BS IE 1985; MBA 1990) for her substantial contribution to the practice of engineering and the applied sciences and for her exceptional professional career. 

UB engineer Souma Chowdhury is working to adapt teams of drones to assist in emergency response and disaster relief.

UB CSEE alumni Michael Lesakowski (MS ’08) and Peter Merlo (BS ’93, MS ‘98); UB staff member Steven Roder; and their team of 40 hockey players helped raise $1.2 million for cancer research at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI).

The UB team defied the odds and came out of the experience with some strong bonds.


The honor stems from a 19-year partnership with the Federal University of Pernambuco.

UB-ASCE student teamwork builds bridges—and more—to help reach career goals. "If you watch the students in action, you see their leadership ability or their intensity or commitment, and that's better than an interview," says industry advisor Larry Mathews. 

Making injectable medicine safer

Researchers remove excess additives from drugs, which could reduce the odds of serious allergic reactions and other side effects.

Looking to the sky: UB Nanosat

A new project will extend the reach of the university's Nanosatellite Lab and help protect important space infrastructure, such as communication and GPS satellites, from orbital debris.
