Being a student in the Gallogly College of Engineering means more than learning about engineering; it means experiencing engineering as well, side by side with some of the world’s most respected authorities in their fields.
Our hands-on, real-world approach to the education experience makes creative problem solving, engineering design, leadership and communications skills all top priorities.
OU students are serving the global community, while gaining valuable professional experience and learning how to work in teams. Our students are proving that OU engineering graduates are uniquely positioned to navigate the realm of technological possibilities for improving our quality of life.
We are honored to be named among the best engineering schools in the country by "U.S. News and World Report." Rankings are based on weighted averages of 10 indicators including peer and recruiter assessments, faculty resources, student-faculty ratios, research activity, student selectivity and others.
The Gallogly College of Engineering is organized into seven schools with each school consisting of one or more programs. In addition, we offer a multidisciplinary undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics. The Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering is in the College of Earth and Energy. Each School also offers Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees.
All our Schools offer accelerated options, where you can complete a bachelor of science AND a master of science in five years!

Always pioneers, OU was the first university in the United States to offer a degree in engineering physics. In keeping with that tradition, we offer a state-of-the-art engineering computer network for research and instruction. OU was one of the first colleges of engineering to incorporate laptops into the curriculum and to provide wireless Internet in the classrooms. More than 60 patents have been issued to OU's Gallogly College of Engineering faculty.

It may be a small piece of a massive aircraft, but the B-1B lower rudder is essential. The B-1B Lancer aircraft became operational for use in 1986, and sustaining it well into this decade is vital to Air Force operational readiness. The lower rudder is an integral part of a split rudder control system that provides structural support and control as the aircraft flies at high speeds. However, the current manufacturing process for the lower rudder piece is complex and expensive.
In 2020, University of Oklahoma engineer Amy McGovern, Ph.D., applied for a $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation to establish the AI Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography. In May of that same year, she was notified that the University of Oklahoma was awarded the grant and that she would be named its director.
Over 800 high school students and educators from across the state recently attended the 111th Engineering Open House hosted by the Gallogly College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma and sponsored by OG&E.
More than 500,000 people in the United States undergo yearly rehabilitation following a stroke or brain injury. Movement impairments following a stroke are a major cause of adult disability in the U.S. Currently, routine treatments are not optimized for individual patient needs.
