College of Engineering
Each of the curricula offered by the College of Engineering provides a fundamental science-oriented university education with coverage of communications, the humanities, and social sciences, as well as the basic physical sciences of mathematics, physics, and chemistry. The curricula also encompass engineering sciences common to all engineering disciplines and project courses that introduce the engineering method of design.
Requirements for admission to UH Manoa are described in the "Undergraduate Education" section of the Catalog. High school students applying to the College of Engineering should have completed trigonometry, physics, and chemistry. The college also uses aptitude tests and high school records in its screening procedure.
Transfer students must have completed ENG 100, MATH 241 and 242, PHYS 170/170L, and CHEM 161/161L and 162 or their equivalents, and have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Students who do not meet entry requirements may enroll in Pre-engineering in Arts and Sciences and transfer into an engineering major at a later time. Pre-engineering students are advised by the College of Engineering and may enroll in lower division engineering courses with no additional approvals needed.
Course work in each curriculum consists of a set of required courses common to all engineering majors and additional courses to satisfy departmental requirements. The courses required of all engineering students, which also satisfies the General Education Core Requirements of UH Manoa, consist of the following 51 credits:
Arts, Humanities and Literature
Global and Multicultural Perspectives
In addition, a student must complete the Focus Graduation Requirements, 1H, 1E, 1O, and 5W courses. The Hawaiian or Second Language is not required for the engineering degree.
BS Degree Requirements
The undergraduate curricula are designed to be completed in eight semesters.
To receive a bachelor of science degree in engineering, a student must adhere to the following:
See appropriate departments for specific major requirements leading to a bachelor's degree.
Undergraduate engineering students are subject to the policies of academic probation, suspension, and dismissal of UH Manoa as specified in the Catalog. In addition, engineering students with either a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 or an upper division GPA of less than 2.0 may be placed on academic probation. The student must maintain a semester GPA of 2.0 or higher for each probationary semester. Failure to meet any of the above conditions may result in suspension or dismissal. Engineering undergraduates may also be suspended when they fail to achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 1.7 after attempting 24 credit hours.
Students who are suspended must reapply for admission to the Office of Admissions within specified deadlines. Students who do not take courses after being suspended for the required one semester are eligible to be readmitted to the College of the Engineering. Suspended students who attend another institution (including other UH system campuses) will be considered "transfer" students when reapplying to UH Manoa and must meet the transfer requirements of the College of Engineering.
See appropriate department for specific description and requirements.
