Students can enter the Electrical Engineering program via four routes:
A student applying from high school must meet the minimum requirements of the university. High school preparation should include mathematics through trigonometry, physics, solid geometry, chemistry, and biology.
Transfer students are an important part of the EE department. Approximately half of a typical EE junior class transfers from other engineering programs, from both UB and other universities. Students from other scientific disciplines or with sufficient academic preparation are welcome to apply. The time necessary for degree completion depends upon how many of the mathematics, physics, and chemistry requirements have been satisfied. Any student contemplating transfer to the Electrical Engineering curriculum or wishes to learn more about the program requirements should contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies or the Department Chair.
UB engineering students can easily transfer to EE from other engineering majors at any point throughout their programs. Freshman and sophomore level courses which meet the science, math, and engineering requirements for other engineering majors also meet the requirements for EE, making it simple to transfer in the freshman or sophomore years. For more advanced students, it is possible to apply junior- and senior-level engineering courses to the EE degree as technical electives.
Students should refer to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences for their transfer requirements.
Students should refer to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences for their transfer requirements for current UB students.
