Student Talent

Student worker.

UB’s student body consists of 5,600 undergraduate and graduate engineering students who are eager to apply classroom knowledge at your business. Their cost-effective expertise is available to all types of organizations in any industry.

Our student talent programs deliver real-world solutions to those short on manpower, time or technical know-how. And who knows? One of these placement options might be the ticket to your next permanent hire.

Student Engineering Projects

Students work on short-term industry projects – lasting 12 to 16 weeks – during the fall, spring or summer semesters. Graduate and undergraduate assistants are placed according to their skill sets, and matched to address a specific problem statement identified by your company. Due to the custom nature of student engineering projects, contact Gary Simon at 716.645.8837 or ggsimon@buffalo.edu for more information.

Does your company have a broken process, or one that could benefit from extra attention? Consider the two-semester Student Black Belt Certification Program, which affords you a dedicated resource for improving an operation. Participants apply the problem-solving approach of Lean Six Sigma to eliminate the root cause of an issue and reduce variation. A Master Black Belt mentor supports the student, who works 12 to 16 hours each week onsite at your company, starting in September and ending with the academic year in May.

As part of its Experiential Learning Program, engineering students are encouraged to pursue internships and co-ops for academic credit. Organizations should post opportunities through the UB Career Services job portal, Bullseye.
