About Us

Building upon UB’s reputation as a leader in advanced manufacturing and design, our Sustainable Manufacturing and Advanced Robotic Technologies (SMART) community will help create the next generation of technologies, processes and education.

The SMART CoE approach is expected to impact scholarship, education, and engagement in the eight interdisciplinary SMART themes:
SMART will engage partners throughout the university and beyond to bring focused expertise and unique capabilities to the challenge of a revitalized manufacturing industry in New York State.  Strategic partners include partners both inside and outside of the University working with the various groups facilitated by faculty leaders. 

The University at Buffalo has three campuses: the North Campus in suburban Amherst, the South Campus on Main Street in a North Buffalo neighborhood and the growing Downtown Campus, encompassing several buildings in downtown Buffalo.


The Buffalo-Niagara region is a major metropolitan area with a diverse blend of communities, each with its own distinct character and all united in a rich panorama of life.
