UB students in academic good standing may be considered for admission to our intended engineering or applied science majors.
We first describe the intended and approved engineering and applied science majors.
This page outlines the process for students to join an intended engineering or applied science major. The information is relevant for matriculated UB students who are currently in a non-SEAS degree program (e.g., pharmacy, business, chemistry, undecided) and are interested in pursuing an engineering or applied science degree, but do not satisfy the admissions criteria for the approved major. Students who have completed admissions requirements should consult our Admission to SEAS for Current UB Students webpage.
Admission to engineering or computer science as an intended major requires the following:
The applicant must show that they could eventually be admissible to the SEAS program of interest. Example scenarios that lead to declination of admission to the intended major include,
Bioinformatics and Computer Science Majors
Students who have acted in a manner that is inconsistent with the SEAS Code of Professional Conduct may be denied admission to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Students are encouraged to utilize our course flowsheets for help in identifying courses required for their desired major. Students should pay particular attention to the course requisite sequences identified by the flowsheets to ensure that they have the necessary prerequisites to enter our courses in a timely manner.
