Ogden College is located on the campus of an earlier educational institution established in Bowling Green in 1877 as a provision in the will of Major Robert W. Ogden.  The original Ogden College closed, and its properties were leased to WKU in 1928.  The name Ogden reappeared when the Ogden College of Science and Technology was established within Western Kentucky University in 1965.  In 2015, Ogden College (now called Ogden College of Science and Engineering) will celebrate its fiftieth year.

Ogden College of Science and Engineering encompasses the applied and basic sciences, offering a broad range of degree programs in agriculture, architectural design, biology, chemistry, computer information technology, computer science, construction management, engineering, geography, geology, architectural design, manufacturing sciences, mathematics, meteorology, physics and astronomy, and psychological sciences.  In collaboration with the College of Education, Ogden offers the SKyTeach Program for those interested in teaching science and math at middle or high school levels. 

Ogden College of Science and Engineering is recognized by the high quality and success of its students and graduates that result from personal attention to student professional development through engagement with faculty in projects that expand on classroom instruction.  Our students are putting knowledge into practice in critical areas like food sciences, cancer research, energy storage, water resources, homeland security, materials, and environmental protection.  Our work today will impact the future in ways we cannot yet imagine.

Through research with faculty, conference attendance, community outreach, study abroad, and internships with local companies, Ogden College students make connections that enhance their WKU experiences.  We are proud of our programs, our faculty, our students, and our impact on the region and connection to the world.  Now is a time of great opportunity for Ogden College and its students.
