Seven engineering schools, unique possibilities!
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.

University of Oklahoma engineer Li Song, Ph.D., never imagined her research would occur in a 1940’s bungalow. Only on the market since 2017, Song thought that smart thermostats – Wi-Fi thermostats – showed the potential for further investigation. She noticed hundreds of computer scientists were collecting data about smart thermostat usage, but few were studying their actual physical systems.
