General Information

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 non-renewable 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. The University 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 the University of Hawai‘i.

Accreditation

The undergraduate curricula in civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

Degrees and Certificates

Bachelor’s Degrees: BS in civil engineering, BS in electrical engineering, BS in mechanical engineering

Master’s Degrees: MS in civil engineering, MS in electrical engineering, MS in mechanical engineering

Doctoral Degrees: PhD in civil engineering, PhD in electrical engineering, PhD in mechanical engineering

Certificate Programs: Construction Engineering and Management Graduate Certificate, Renewable Energy Engineering Graduate Certificate

For information on programs in biosystems engineering, please refer to the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources.

Advising

Student Academic Services
Holmes 250
2540 Dole Street

Tel: (808) 956-8404

All students in the College of Engineering must receive approval of their program of courses from their advisers 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 (see the “Special Programs” section within the Colleges of Arts and Sciences).

New Students

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.

Undergraduate Programs

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 elective engineering courses that introduce the engineering method of design.

Entering engineering freshmen may choose to attend any of the University of Hawai’i system campuses to complete lower division curriculum requirements in the areas of mathematics, chemistry, physics, lower division (100- and 200-level) engineering, foreign language, history, humanities, and social sciences. As an engineering student on any system campus, students are entitled to benefits such as computer accounts, membership in engineering student clubs, invitations to student events, and scholarship eligibility. Students electing to defer enrollment are required to reenter the Manoa campus within three years of initial acceptance. Tuition and fees are based on the campus attended.

Any academic actions (e.g., probation, suspension, etc.) will be administered by the appropriate student services office of the attending campus. In addition, reentering students must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average for all transfer-level courses (numbered 100 and above) based on the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa grading standard. Students are required to submit a common application form to the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa Office of Admissions and Records for the sole purpose of updating student records prior to reentry no later than May 1 for fall semester reentry or November 1 for spring semester reentry.
