This year we will celebrate National Engineers Week from Feb. 21-27 and UB Engineers Week from March 22-26. Each week will feature a variety events for UB SEAS students.
Engineers Week brings engineering at UB into the spotlight for a week in March with a series of student-run engineering and science-themed competitions.
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.
Founded by NSPE in 1951, National Engineers Week is dedicated to ensuring a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers.
This year we will celebrate National Engineers Week with a series of professional development opportunities for students (see schedule below), culminating on Friday with the Pledge to Professionalism for seniors (there will be subsequent in-person events throughout the semester and a later virtual event for those seniors unable to return to campus).
UB Engineers Week, our traditional student club celebration, has been postponed until March 21-27, 2021. Details will be posted shortly.

In this series, we will highlight prominent SEAS alumni that pursued unique career paths. The format will be a moderated question and answer conversation and will illustrate the variety of ways you can use your UB SEAS degree. Jointly sponsored by UB’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the UB Engineering Alumni Association. Registration is preferred but not required.
Come learn how to navigate the COVID economy and learn hacks for gaining relevant experience during this time. Presented by Holly Justice, NCC, DCC, UB Career Services. Registration is preferred but not required.
Please join student club National Society for Black Engineers (NSBE) for a presentation by Splice Music Chief Technology Officer, Jim Chou. Splice Music is a rapidly growing sound cloud platform of music production marketplace similar to Adobe for the creatives.

Registration required. Students who are eligible to participate in the SEAS Pledge to Professionalism Ceremony should have received an email with registration instructions.
The SEAS Pledge to Professionalism Ceremony includes the Order of the Engineer and the Pledge of the Computing Professional. The Order of the Engineer is a fellowship of engineers that emphasizes pride and responsibility in the engineering profession. Senior engineering students take an “Obligation of the Engineer” oath together, and receive a ceremonial ring. The Pledge of the Computing Professional is intended to promote and recognize the ethical and moral behavior of graduates of computing-related degree programs as they transition to careers of service to society.
Take advantage of a special viewing of the documentary CODED BIAS. The film explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all.
This film is provided to UB students by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and Women in Science and Engineering.
Event Start Date: February 11, 2021
