Student Clubs and Organizations

Engineering clubs focus on many different facets of the engineering field and allow students to gain hands on experience with the material they learn in the classroom.

In addition to networking with professors and professionals, engineering clubs actively carry out research projects, conduct valuable experiments and compete in competitions throughout the nation. Many of clubs are nationally recognized and work closely with national societies.

Most notably, the engineering clubs participate in the National Engineers Week in February of each year, where each club competes in events such as a paper bridge competition, rocket launches, Battle Bots and more.

The UB Engineering Student Organizations are coordinated by the Engineering Council Coordinator, an officer of the UB Student Association.
