Our Facilities

Cleanroom

114 Davis Hall

Students in cleanroom.

UB offers a multidisciplinary cleanroom with class 1000 space and class 100 working areas – a facility well-equipped for electronic device research, processing and development, materials characterization, microfabrication and other processes. Within these highly controlled environments, pollutants and airborne particles are minimized through extensive filtration systems.

Design Studio

416 Bonner Hall

Students in the design studio.

The Design Studio comprises a Reverse Engineering Lab (RevEng Lab) and the DaVinci Lab. The studio consists of a variety of tools, measurement devices and materials to support tinkering via product teardown, ideation and modification. Concepts can be implemented through the complementary tinkering spaces.

Digital Manufacturing Laboratory

118 Bonner Hall

The Digital Manufacturing Lab houses a variety of 3D printing/ additive manufacturing technologies, software and capabilities for modeling and digital design, and manufacturing and analysis. Home to high-definition 3D digital scanners, desk-top and professional grade printers, the lab provides capabilities for precision rapid prototyping, tooling and manufacturing of 3D objects and parts.

Electronics Tinkering Laboratory

104C Jarvis Hall

Student in the tinkering lab.

The Electronics Tinkering Lab has scheduled hours for students to work on fabrication and tinkering with electronics under guidance from lab supervisors. Students will learn a range of skills and tools, including bread boarding, soldering, circuit design and simulation software, and power supplies and function generators.

Engineering Machine Shop

105 Jarvis Hall

The SEAS Engineering Machine Shop supports experimental research, student clubs and course requirements. This recently renovated facility features a new CNC lathe and CNC milling machine, three new engine lathes with digital readouts, a TIG welder, a 3D printer, and a modern conference room. Highly skilled staff provide technical support for faculty, staff and students. 

Materials Characterization Laboratory

110 Furnas Hall

Student in lab.

The Materials Characterization Lab offers equipment for liquid, powder, surface and bulk materials characterization, as well as expert analytical services for product quality assurance, failure analysis, and forensic evaluations. 

Motion Simulation Laboratory

106 Furnas Hall

Students driving in the motion simulator.

The motion-based driving simulator is a high-fidelity tool for training, education, and transportation and behavioral research. The 6-DOF motion platform, 360º degree visual display system and interactive driver controls create an authentic driving experience.

Stevens Center

412 Bonner Hall

Stevens Center

The Stevens Center is a collaborative meeting space for undergraduates made possible by the generosity of Scott and Coleen Stevens and a UB President’s Circle grant. The space is accessible to all SEAS undergrads during regular business hours (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Afterhours and weekends, the space is accessible to juniors and seniors via UB swipe card.

Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory

116 Ketter Hall
