Campus Master Plan

OSU Institute of Technology is poised for expansion, and we are excited to share a "road map" for the next quarter century.

The state’s only university of applied technology, OSUIT offers unique programs and services responding to industry need and economic indicators. The resulting plan takes into account the growing demand for a skilled and highly-educated workforce as we continue to fill the skills gap, one graduate at a time.

The extended executive summary of the Master Plan offers an in-depth look at the analysis, research, and planning involved. Viewing the summary requires Adobe Reader.

The growth of OSUIT’s programs means instructional spaces must be realigned or re-imagined, and in many cases, redesigned to accommodate future enrollment and industry needs. The OSUIT Campus Master Plan provides a road map for how to navigate the future of the institution and its unique programs and services.

While the plan includes campus beautification projects— additional water features, an expanded trail system and revamped entrances— its primary focus is on the development of facilities to meet increasing industry demand.

Master Plan Concept Drawing
South Entry – 4th Street

Over the last 12 months, OSU Institute of Technology engaged in a discovery process with key stakeholder groups— administrators; faculty and staff; community leaders; industry partners; and alumni and students— to lay the groundwork for our campus’s future. The overall goal of the Master Plan is to unify and expand the programs in a comprehensive way to form a complete professional campus yet retaining a neighborhood feel and understanding of each program neighborhood.

Technology Mall

The formal, central Technology Mall provides internal access as well as organizing the programs within the campus in order to maximize the interaction between instructional programs, as well as with the Okmulgee community and all other points.

East Entry – Loop 56

Emphasizing pedestrian orientation between the instructional buildings, these areas are clustered around the southern end of the new Technology Mall, pushing vehicular traffic to the perimeter. The central campus area comprises high visibility programs and buildings, allowing maximum public interaction with the culinary program, a possible Hotel, a large event center, and access to the Learning Resource Center.

The northern portion of the campus is an ideal location for the large-scale technical programs, anchored by the automotive programs, centered around the Automotive Center of Excellence.

The overall feel of the new buildings and landscape should have a feeling of Technology, integrating clean lines, flexible configurations, and with sustainable maintenance, while providing a clear evolution from the history of the campus.

The vision of the campus looks toward a technical future that can adapt and achieve ever-changing progress, while preserving roots in OSUIT’s heritage.

Giving to OSUIT

One of the first steps in turning the campus master plan into a reality is to secure funding for projects covering all divisions, programs and offices at OSU Institute of Technology.

It will take efforts from public and private sources to move the campus master plan forward into the next two decades.
