Message from the Dean

The OU Gallogly College of Engineering was formed in 1909 and recorded its first graduates in the spring of 1910. We are proud of our past and the investment made in providing excellence in engineering education.

We now look to the next 100 years as we continue to invest in those students who are seeking to solve some of the most critical challenges mankind has ever faced - issues faced by every generation but now with great complexity and global competitive pressures like energy, water, food, environment, security and health.

Dean Tom Landers

When you look ahead to the challenges and creative opportunities the next 100 years will bring, there’s never been a better time than now to become an engineer. We are producing exciting new knowledge and graduates highly sought-after in a world that is both complex and rich in opportunities. Our graduates are in high demand for their capacity to solve complex problems, innovate and create greater quality of life and economic opportunity. We encourage and equip each of our graduates to become excellent practitioners, communicators and stewards of technology.

We are very proud of our faculty and staff. They are committed to teaching and mentoring students to become excellent practitioners, citizens and leaders. We are blessed to have some of the world's top researchers in exciting areas including biotechnology and bioengineering, nanotechnology, solid state electronics, telecommunications and complex systems modeling.

It is a distinct privilege for me to serve as dean at this time. Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends, we are well positioned with excellent resources for the future, including new scholarships, faculty endowments and facilities.
