This position calls for someone who is self-motivated and adaptable, intelligent, possesses a global vision and who is interested in working in a dynamic, multicultural institution.
To address the chronic shortage of local engineers in Guam and the other islands in the Western Pacific, the School of Engineering (SENG) was established at the University of Guam (UOG) and recognized by the Board of Regents in September 2016.
