The Ogden College of Science & Engineering (OCSE) encompasses the applied and basic sciences, offering a broad range of degree programs through our eight Academic Units.

The mission of OCSE is to empower individuals to become leaders through academic achievement, global connections, and engagement in research, education, and service.  We are recognized by the high quality and success of our students and graduates which results from personal attention to student professional development through engagement with faculty in projects that expand on classroom instruction.  


Ogden College is located on the site of an earlier educational institution established in 1877 as a provision in the will of Major Robert W. Ogden.  In 1928, the original Ogden College closed and its properties were leased to WKU.  The Ogden name reappeared in 1965 when the Ogden College of Science and Technology was established within Western Kentucky University.  

We look forward to connecting with you.  Click around on our website, connect with us on social media, and contact our office if you need additional information.
