School of Engineering
The mission of the School of Engineering is to provide outstanding undergraduate instruction in the fundamentals of engineering and those specialties of engineering that are most important to Guam and other island communities of the West Pacific region. The School of Engineering is committed to producing graduates of the highest professional caliber, with not only broad knowledge and skills, but solid professional and personal integrity. To complement its teaching mission, the School of Engineering fosters faculty and student engagement in community service and applied research on problems for which engineering approaches help provide solutions.
The School of Engineering is working to establish a four-year accredited engineering degree program at UOG, which will offer a four-year Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering (B.S.E.). The school will have faculty with expertise in each of the basic civil and environmental engineering fields, and the program will be accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). A new building will house the new program, providing dedicated space for classrooms and laboratories, and office space for faculty and students.
The School 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 October 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 University Of Guam Board Of Regents formally established the new School of Engineering.
