Our annual symposium is dedicated to the late Erich Bloch, former director of the National Science Foundation who helped endow the Department of Materials Design and Innovation at UB.
Buffalo is a historic city on the rise with one of the fastest-growing economies in the nation. Listed by Travel + Leisure magazine as America’s Favorite City and ranked one of the best cities in which to attend college, Buffalo is beloved by UB students for its fantastic culture and memorable people. Bonus: we’re in the perfect location. By bus, train, car or air, you’re less than 90 minutes from cities like New York, Toronto, D.C. and Philly.
In a city as diverse as Buffalo, you can always find something fun to do, whether it's taking a leisurely walk in one of our glorious Olmsted-designed parks or taking in a thought-provoking work of art at dozens of art galleries.
