School of Engineering
The School of Engineering had its beginning in the University of Guam Pre-Engineering Program, which was established in 1989 to help fill the chronic need for local engineers for Guam and the other islands in the Western Pacific. The Pre-Engineering Program produced students prepared for admission as juniors into any four-year engineering school accredited by ABET.
On Oct. 29, 2009, the president of UOG expressed his vision for establishing a four-year accredited engineering degree program to help meet the current and growing demand for engineering expertise in Guam and the region’s private and public sectors. In September 2016, the UOG Board of Regents formally established the new School of Engineering, and in February 2019, the board approved a four-year Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering for the School of Engineering. The degree will be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
A new building will house the new program that will provide state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories as well as office space for faculty and administrators.
The mission of the School of Engineering is to develop highly competent professionals prepared for entry-level positions in civil engineering, to further study in graduate school, and for life-long learning and societal leadership.
The School of Engineering strives to graduate highly qualified engineers, maintain nationally recognized research, and provide quality professional and community service to Guam, Micronesia, and the neighboring regions in the Pacific and Asia.
