Each student is assigned a faculty advisor upon acceptance into any of the programs offered by the department. New and transfer students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisors as soon as possible to discuss their program of study. Continuing
students are required to meet with their advisors at least once each semester. The principal role of the faculty advisor is to assist students in choosing courses to complete their degree requirements in a timely fashion
with a manageable workload. Faculty advisors also provide general advice concerning career specialization, employment opportunities, graduate school, and other academic and professional issues.
Academic advisement also is available through the Office of Undergraduate Education, School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, located in 410 Bonner Hall. Official records are maintained at this office. Students
who need help or have questions regarding the UB Curriculum requirements, HUB academic advisement report, transfer credits, and/or basic science and math courses should see an academic advisor in 410 Bonner Hall.
For the transfer policy, please see the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences entry in the Undergraduate Catalog, here.
SUNY Seamless Transfer Path
SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring between SUNYs simple and efficient. SUNY has defined courses that students can
take before transferring which will apply to the major at UB or other SUNY institutions and ensure timely graduation.
Information about the Transfer Path for this major can be found on the SUNY Website.
Students are encouraged to contact their academic advisor or department to discuss how their coursework will apply to their degree.

Total Credits Required for Degree
Students should consult with an academic advisor to determine how any transfer or exam credit might be utilized in meeting UB Curriculum, prerequisite, or major requirements.
Two technical electives are required (see list below) Only three credits of the informal courses (CIE 498, CIE 499,
EAS 396, and EAS 496) can be counted as a technical electives toward fulfillment of degree requirements. Senior-level
courses outside environmental engineering may also be taken as technical electives with prior approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Courses cannot be double-counted as fulfilling both a technical
elective requirement and a CIE, earth science, or GIS elective requirement.
