World-Class Education

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.


OU Engineers to Design a Better Rudder to Potentially Save the Air Force Millions

January 20, 2023

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.
