Undergraduate Engineering Tours

We host morning information sessions and tours for prospective undergraduates on select dates throughout the year.  Each program includes a brief presentation by one of our academic advisors describing available academic programs, popular experiential learning and academic support options, and admissions information.  Each tour includes stops by our Society of Automotive Engineers design shop, Machine Shop Facility, the Design Studio and our national multidisciplinary and multi-hazard earthquake engineering research center.

Monday tours also consist of visits with our Computer Science & Engineering and Industrial & Systems Engineering departments.

Friday tours also include a visit with our Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Chemical & Biological Engineering departments.

Guests attending an Engineering Tour may also choose to sign up for a Visit UB Program.

Please check our online registration system for available dates.

If you have questions or inquiries about visiting SEAS, please contact Dan LaRosa at dlarosa@buffalo.edu.

Undergraduate Open House

If you are unable to attend one of our engineering tours, UB organizes a general fall open house and a spring open house for accepted undergraduate students. In addition to general information sessions, a student club fair, campus walking tours, and tours of the halls of residence, all departments hold an information session and offer tours of their facilities. During open house you can typically meet the Chair, the Director of Undergraduate Studies and current students.

General University Tours

We also encourage you to attend a university-wide admissions presentation. If an afternoon tour is offered the same day as your Engineering tour, you would be able to attend both. You can find available tour dates and sign up by visiting admissions.buffalo.edu/visit or by calling 1-888-UB-ADMIT (1-888-822-3648).

Graduate Engineering Visits

To visit one of our departments or meet with faculty, contact the department you're interested in or the Office of Graduate Education at gradeng@buffalo.edu.

Have a group?

If you are a faculty or staff member who would like to bring a group of prospective graduate students to campus, let us know! Contact us for more information.
