College of Engineering
An engineering degree provides an excellent background for seeking solutions to many of the problems in the development and management of technology related to urban demands, the enhancement of our living environment, and the effective utilization of our nonrenewable resources. Engineering curricula include both general and theoretical course work designed to enable graduates to meet the challenges of a technology-oriented society. Particular emphasis is placed on problems related to energy and the preservation and enhancement of the environment.
Engineering has been a major program of study at this institution since its founding in 1907. UH Manoa has granted more than 6,500 engineering degrees, and many of the professional engineers practicing in industries, consulting firms, and governmental agencies throughout the state are graduates of UH Manoa.
The undergraduate curricula in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

All students in the College of Engineering must receive approval of their program of courses from their advisors prior to registration each semester.
Updated curriculum check sheets summarizing all of the requirements for each undergraduate curriculum are available in the College’s Student Academic Services Office.
Undergraduate engineering students who are unusually well-qualified academically are encouraged to participate in the UH Manoa Honors Programs.
An orientation session for new students is held each semester before classes begin. Incoming students receive approval of their program of courses at that time. In addition, incoming students with waived course work (e.g., advanced placement examination) must still fulfill credit hour requirements and should contact the College’s Student Academic Services Office for more information.
