Engineering Council

Coordinator:
Tanahiry Escamilla -


The Engineering Council consists of clubs focused on the many different facets of the Engineering field and allows students to gain hands on experience of the material they learn in the classroom. In addition to networking with professors and professionals, Engineering clubs actively carry out research projects, conduct valuable experiments and compete in competitions throughout the nation. Many of the Student Association Engineering clubs are national recognized and work closely with national societies. Most notably, the Engineering Council annually participates in the National Engineering Week in February in which each club competes in events such as a Rube Goldberg competition, Battle Bots and more.

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA)
Club Status: Permanent

About Us:

UB AIAA is an engineering club with two main projects: Design-Build-Fly (DBF) and Microgravity (Micro). DBF is a competition hosted by AIAA Cessna and Raytheon Missile Systems and is our largest project. Every year the competition posts new requirements for teams to design build and fly a remote controlled fixed-wing aircraft. Rules for the upcoming years competition will be released in August. The Micro project starts in early September. NASAs Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program involves designing an experiment we would like to test in a simulated zero-gravity environment. Once the experiment is designed we write a proposal in which we explain the experiment to NASA. After NASA approves the experiment members of the Micro team travel to the Johnson Space Center in Houston TX to conduct the experiment on an aircraft modified to fly in parabolas inducing microgravity. The aircraft is known as the Vomit Comet.

Engineering World Health (EWH)
Club Status: Temporary
Date Established:  2017-02-15

About Us:

Our mission, as an Engineering World Health chapter, is to integrate multiple disciplines within engineering and medicine to understand and address challenges faced by clinicians and technicians in the developing world. We aim to promote experiential learning through hands on skills workshops, such as soldering and troubleshooting circuitry, and participation in design competitions to create novel medical technologies appropriate for developing countries.  Through EWH sponsored programs, we intend to immerse members in the challenges of impoverished clinical settings, where they must adapt and apply their knowledge beyond the classroom setting. We aim to improve the quality of healthcare in these vulnerable communities and leave a lasting impact on our members.

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE)
Club Status: Permanent

About Us:

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) is the world’s largest professional society. It is composed of students and professionals from the field of Electrical Engineering and other related disciplines. The organization’s mission is to help advance technology further members’ careers and promote an international technical community. We the University at Buffalo IEEE Student Chapter strive to do much of the same. The club focuses on giving students technical and professional preparation for careers in both industry and academia. Put simply we prepare students for engineering outside the classroom. Our members have the opportunity to take leadership roles in a variety of interdisciplinary engineering projects; these projects give students hands-on technical and multidisciplinary experience they won’t get by attending lectures. Additionally we offer a variety of workshops to teach students the skills they need to work on such projects; previous workshops have included topics such as computer programming soldering PCB design circuit design website design and CAD. There is no cost to join the club. Our chapter funds these projects so that all students have an equal opportunity to become involved. The only requirement is an enthusiasm for learning! Feel free to stop by any of our project meetings to get involved!
