Admin / Biog History Ogden College (precursor institution) was established in 1887 as a result of a bequest by Robert Ogden. Ogden College merged into Western and the property was leased by Western in 1928. The existing mathematics and science departments and agriculture program were included in the new Ogden Department of Science that was established as a result of the merger.

The Ogden College of Science and Technology was established as part of a major restructuring in 1965 with Agriculture, Biology, Chemistry, Geography & Geology, Mathematics, and Physics Departments and degree programs in Engineering Technology.

The Ogden College of Science became the Ogden College of Science, Technology & Health in April 1981 when the College of Applied Arts and Health was disbanded. Ogden took in several health related units such as Allied Health, Nursing and Dental Hygiene until July 2001 when the college of Health and Human Services was created. Ogden became the Ogden College of Science & Engineering.
