Information for UB Students

Student Manimanjari Vemula talks with Christopher Holzmann of Sumitomo Rubber USA at a desk.

We provide students from the UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences with opportunities  to enhance their resumes with experiential learning.

We recruit students to work on engineering-based projects at companies in Western New York. Work experiences are a way to develop professionalism and technical competence, and prepare for a future career.

Student Projects

Retrofitting an 18-foot speedboat with a mechanical steering system. Writing code for a new software platform, testing it and fixing bugs. Creating work instructions and integrating process controls.

The above are a few examples of short-term engineering projects that students have undertaken. Opportunities – which range between 12 and 16 weeks – are announced through the student engineering listserv that most appropriately matches the needs of the company. The emails include a short description of the project and directions for applying.

If you are interested in serving on a student project, check your email regularly. Please note that emails are only sent when we need to match a student to a project. We do not keep resumes on file.

Student Six Sigma Black Belt Certification

The two-semester Student Six Sigma Black Belt Certification is a competitive program offered by TCIE with the UB Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering that places students at a company to apply the problem-solving approach of Lean Six Sigma. Students work on a project aimed at eliminating process variation and receive support from a Master Black Belt mentor.
