UOG wants to develop engineering program

by Michele Catahay

Guam - The University of Guam is working on starting up a school of engineering in the next several years. UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood says they're going to be turning in a request to the Guam Legislature in hopes to start planning for it.

He says he hopes for the concept to blossom into a full-fledged program in the next two years, telling KUAM News, "Since we haven't signed an actual contract with them yet, I will say that we're working with the University of Hawaii and we have an ongoing relationship with the University of Iowa."  For the past several years, UOG has created partnerships with various universities throughout the nation to provide experience and knowledge to students in all fields.
