Welcome to CHE

Oklahoma State is a comprehensive university. This means that our faculty does more than teach. Our instructors’ rankings are excellent and the professors are also actively involved in leadership of the profession, creativity in research and development, and partnership with industry in applying technology. These comprehensive faculty experiences enrich the classroom. In turn, the faculty development that comes through teaching enhances our ability to provide technical leadership. In all, OSU provides both leadership in the profession and an exceptional, diverse, relevant, and comprehensive experience for students at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
