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.

Robotics
Club Status: Permanent

About Us:

UB Robotics is an undergraduate club at the University at Buffalo, dedicated to applying the engineering principles that members learn in the classroom to real-world, robotics-related projects. We accomplish this goal primarily through building robots for intercollegiate competitions. 

UB Robotics has three main roles in the University at Buffalo community. First and foremost, we are a group of students interested in robotics. This means our primary concern is to advance the knowledge of our members in the field of robotics. Secondly, we are an undergraduate club, which means that it is important for us to do our best to be one of the premier clubs at the University at Buffalo. This task includes completing all SA requirements, working hard to recruit new members, and ensuring that future members will have an easy transition so that the club can be successful year after year. Thirdly, as a college-level robotics organization, it should be in our interest to advance the field of robotics as a whole. This means that after our other two objectives have been met, we should do our best to take on difficult and cutting-edge projects to help develop new technologies and earn recognition for the University.
