Next Steps for New Students

Getting started at UB

School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Orientation

Incoming students must attend the SEAS Orientation. This orientation is typically held the week before Fall Semester classes start.

Master of Professional Studies in Data Sciences and Applications Orientation

All incoming students must attend the program-specific orientation where they will go over the full details of the program, plan of study, advising, culminating experience, and more. This orientation typically is held the week before the semester begins.

Selecting & Enrolling in Courses

The program is a cohort style, and all students take the same four classes their first semester. The graduate coordinator will email course registration forms which students must sign to acknowledge their schedule, and then send back. The graduate coordinator registers all students for first-semester classes. Students are not able to self-register.
