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.
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.

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.
ESW partners with developing communities to develop appropriate solutions that improve their quality of life and that of future generations. Activities: Field trips National conference solar projects wind projects.
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!

SASE is dedicated to the advancement of Asian heritage scientists and engineers in education and employment so that they can achieve their full potential. In addition to professional development, SASE also encourages members to contribute to the enhancement of the communities in which they live. SASE's mission is to:
SAE. Provide members with opportunities in the engineering profession. Sponsor projects field trips research.
SHPE is the leading social-technical organization whose primary function is to enhance and achieve the potential of Hispanics in engineering math and science. We are brought together by heritage social responsibility and desire to improve the equality of all people through the use of science and technology.We value excellence in education professional pursuits and leadership. We gain excellence through integrity empowerment achievement diversity and continuous improvement
The Society of Women Engineers stimulates women to achieve full potential in careers as engineers and leaders by expanding the image of the engineering profession as a positive force in improving the quality of life and by demonstrating the value of diversity. We also serve to inform young women and the general public of the qualifications and achievements of women engineers and the opportunities that are open to them. SWE serves as a center of information on women in engineering. We encourage women engineers to attain high levels of education and professional achievement.
Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. Encourage students to become involved with space development and exploration. Activities: Rocketry-Propulsion project National conference outreach.
To increase the number of students interested in entering the field of theme park engineering at the University at Buffalo. To develop and participate in programs with industry and the university which will benefit the members of the club through an insight in the field. Run projects that allow members to actively work to achieve the goals of the club. to provide a forum for the exchange of information pertinent for students interested in theme park engineering. Consistently work to crate a positive image of TPEC, the Student Association and the University. Support students, faculty and professionals interested in the design and implementation of appropriate technologies.
