Engineering Student Life

Our vision is to promote ai welcoming community that fosters leadership, learning, and lifelong success to enhance the holistic experience for our students.


With over 40 engineering student organizations, including engineering competition teams, and over 4,000 engineering students, the Gallogly College of Engineering leadership, faculty, and staff works to support our students and their organizations throughout the year by providing leadership and learning experiences that promote creativity, collaboration, and professionalism.  We achieve these goals with the following programs:

Group of tutors of the Dean's Leadership Council
Engineering Pathways Mentors

By partnering with the Gallogly College of Engineering and the University of Oklahoma, The Council members are engineering students with excellent academic credentials, leadership and communication skills. They serve as mentors to freshman and transfer engineering students, tutors for courses in engineering curricula, and student recruiters for prospective students interested in engineering. DLC members are selected through an application process.
