OGI School of Science and Engineering
In June 2001, Oregon Graduate Institute became the OGI School of Science and Engineering, a part of the Oregon Health and Science University. The OGI campus is located in Hillsboro, just west of Portland.
It has a student body of about 330 full-time students, with about one-third of those seeking PhDs. The student body also includes about 250 non-degree students.
The Department of Management in Science and Technology focuses on educating leaders and managers in a technology-intensive world. All M.S. in Management courses have a strong technology focus, meeting the educational needs of students working in high-technology industries and/or technology-intensive professions. Our curriculum also emphasizes leadership and the communication and teamwork skills needed to work effectively with people
During the 1990s the school awarded over one thousand graduate degrees, offered hundreds of continuing education seminars and workshops, and pursued more than $100 million in largely federally-funded research.
As of 2004, OGI is still undergoing realignment from the merger: in September, ten of 24 CSE professors and twenty Ph.D. students transferred to Maseeh College within Portland State University. Those who transferred had research specialties in networking, data-intensive systems, programming languages and formal methods. The fourteen remaining members of the CSE faculty will focus on research with viable applications in health science.
