Guam is a United States island territory located
in the tropical western Pacific. Guam is a high
island built from a succession of volcanic eruptions
followed by coral reef buildups. As such it hosts
a diversity of interrelated ecosystems and environments
ranging from sweeping upland savannas, deep valleys
with spectacular waterfalls, limestone forests,
and karst terrains seaward to alluvial plains, mangrove
forests, and world class beaches, seacliffs, and
coral reefs systems.
The Universiy of Guam is the western Pacifics
only Land Grant University. It is mandated to assist
in safeguarding the regions environmental,
social, and economic resources. The interdisciplinary
Environmental Science Graduate Program provides
an integrated research-teaching regime and addresses
technical aspects of complex environmental problems
and seeks to make informed contributions to their
Research in the Environmental Science
Program is individually tailored. It unifies other
graduate curricula, concentrations, and courses
at UOG in Biology, Agricultural Sciences, Geology,
Marine Sciences and Business and Public Administration.
Students receive a Masters of Science in Environmental
Science after finishing 33 credit hours of course
work and successfully completing their research

UNIVERSITY OF GUAM PRE-ENGINEERING
The University of Guam Pre-Engineering Science
(ES) Program parallels the engineering programs
offered during the first two years at major colleges
and universities in the US and abroad. After completing
the required course work in this program, students
transfer to another university that offers degrees
in particular fields of engineering in order to
complete their studies.
The Engineering Science program lays the groundwork
for study in all of the engineering disciplines.
These first two years of engineering study places
emphases on learning the tools and theories and
provides the background for all of the engineering
fields. Students in this program are required
to complete rigorous studies in mathematics and
the physical sciences of chemistry and physics.
Students will also be required to take four Engineering
Science courses in order to complete the program.
In addition students are also required to take
courses in the social sciences and humanities
in order to gain a well-rounded educational experience.
The study and practice of engineering
require an aptitude for and high competency in
the areas of mathematics and the physical sciences.
While the pre-requisites for admission to the
Engineering Science Program are no different than
the basic entrance requirements to the University
of Guam, students with weak preparation in the
areas of mathematics or the physical sciences
are advised that completion of the program may
take a great deal longer than two years.
