The Engineering Society of Buffalo (ESB) was founded in 1889 by a civil engineer, George R. Sikes.
The ESB was incorporated in 1920 and, in more recent years, was declared as a non-for-profit organization. One of the most important aspects of the ESB is promoting the professional development of Engineers in Western New York. This is done through a scholarship program and sponsoring of further education.
The ESB supports academically qualified graduating high school seniors majoring in engineering at either SUNY Buffalo or Buffalo State through the Scholarship Program. Scholarships are primarily funded by the annual Scholarship Run- held each August.
The ESB offers review courses for both the Engineer-In-Training (EIT) exam as well as the Professional Engineering (PE) licensing exam- in all disciplines.
