Engineers Week Botwars.

Many clubs participate in Bot Wars, the marquee event of Engineers Week.

Engineers Week brings engineering at UB into the spotlight for a week in February with a series of student-run engineering and science-themed competitions.

About Engineers Week at UB

Each February, UB's student engineering clubs organize a variety of programs during UB Engineers Week to promote interaction among participating clubs and the campus community.

Most clubs host at least one activity, with some hosting two. Clubs earn points by hosting competitions, taking part in other club’s events and for placing either first, second or third in contests. The three groups with the highest total of points at the end of the week are awarded funds for their club budgets.

Highlights from 2022 Engineers Week


Engineers Week is sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences' Engineering Partners and the UB Student Association.
