Engineers are problem solvers who design, invent, build, modify, and test systems and machines that impact every level of society. They use interdisciplinary knowledge and teamwork to develop and implement solutions to real-world issues; including improving sustainability, health, security, and the joy of living during the 21st century as put forth in the engineering grand challenges developed by the National Academy of Engineering.
The engineering science program has been designed to focus on hands-on, interdisciplinary problem solving to produce graduates who are able to approach problems at every level. It is flexible and multi-departmental, offering students the opportunity to pursue a unique program of study to meet their own special interests or objectives.
Engineering science graduates have a broad knowledge that can be applied to most industries. Using their analytical and problem-solving skills, they are able to establish careers that span the range from technical positions in industry to research positions in government or private labs. Additionally, they are well suited to go into engineering sales and technical communication, and to continue on to graduate school.
The University at Buffalo and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences offer a number of opportunities and services to help students prepare for life after graduation.
