Technology Innovation

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.



Student Achievement

The profile of the Gallogly College of Engineering student body is exceptional. A typical incoming class will have 40-45 National Scholars and more than one-third of the class will have an average ACT of 30 or higher; SAT of 1400 or higher. The average ACT for the freshman class is 27.8; the average SAT is 1240. College of Engineering students consistently excel on campus in activities and student organizations including the Pride of Oklahoma marching band, University of Oklahoma Student Association, sororities and fraternities. The College of Engineering has more than 50 technical societies and college-wide student organizations including Engineer's Club, E-1 for first-year engineers; Dean's Leadership Council, Society of Women Engineers, National Society of Black Engineers, Engineers Without Borders, Society of Professional Hispanic Engineers, American Indian Students in Engineering and Science, and tech societies associated with each undergraduate major.

Student Activities

The Gallogly College of Engineering has an active and service-oriented student body. The Engineers' Club is the largest student organization on campus and hosts several major events throughout the year including Fall Festival to welcome first-year students to the College, Open House for Oklahoma high school students, Engineering Career Fair, Engineers' Week, and the traditional as well as popular, Hamburger Feed before every home football game.

The Engineering Pathways Mentor Program fosters community in the Gallogly College of Engineering through student-to-student interaction, emphasizing service, dedication, respect, and honesty. EP Mentors support first-year engineering students by connecting them with trained peer mentors. These mentors offer guidance on academics, social engagement, and navigating college life, helping protégés make connections within the engineering community and access campus resources.

The college is home to more than 50 student organizations including Engineers' Club, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES),  the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), and the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society.

The Society of Women Engineers (SWE) is another active student organization and one that contributes to the strong representation of women among our engineering students. Open to both women and men, SWE hosts social events, recruitment events such as High School Girls Day and Girl Scout workshops to encourage girls and young women to consider engineering as a career, and events that promote leadership, diversity, and education.

Each of the Schools in the Gallogly College of Engineering has an active technical society for students in that particular discipline. The Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) are but a few examples.

The College offers the opportunity to participate in competition teams including Boomer Rocket, Sooner Racing, Design-Build-Fly, Sooner Off Road and more.


Student Placement

Students at the Engineering Career Fair

We want our students to succeed after college. That's why OU's Career Center Office, in close cooperation with the Gallogly College of Engineering, is dedicated to enhancing the career development of our students. Professionally trained and diversely experienced career counselors teach career planning/job search skills and facilitate the exchange of information among students, alumni, faculty, administrators and employers.

The Career Center conducts an extensive on-campus interviewing program, hosting representatives from approximately 300 organizations each year, maintains a Web Resume Book that can be viewed by employers worldwide, and provides a menu-driven, searchable job listing program. In addition to the College of Engineering's fall Career Fair, the Career Center further facilitates placement by offering annual career fairs and continuing to expand OU's internship and co-op programs.
