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 Pacific’s only Land Grant University. It is mandated to assist in safeguarding the region’s 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 solutions.

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 thesis.

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.
