As one of the smaller and less populous states at 1,360,000 residents, Hawaii has fewer university options for prospective Engineering majors than many of the mainland states. But the quality of education available at a handful of accredited institutions, combined with the undeniable beauty of the surroundings, can make Hawaii a very desirable destination for pursuing advanced study in Engineering.

Hawaii Engineering Colleges

The University of Hawaii Manoa located in the capital city of Honolulu is the principal university for all academics. The current enrollment is above 20,000 students and the College of Engineering has approximately 900 engineering students presently. University of Hawaii Manoa Engineering is fully accredited by the Engineering Association of ABET and offers Bachelor of Science, Masters of Science and PhD degrees. This university offers three major areas of intensive study: Electrical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. UH Manoa also offers a BS degree in Computer Engineering.

Hawaii Pacific University, located in Honolulu, is a private, four-year school offering accredited undergraduate engineering programs in conjunction with two major mainland universities, University of Southern California and Washington University in St. Louis. Hawaii Pacific has a specially designed 5-year dual degree program that will award the student a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (3 years) along with a two-year Bachelors degree of Engineering in the fields of Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Environmental, Industrial, Systems and Mechanical Engineering.

University of Hawaii Manoa offers the only in-state post-graduate Engineering degrees, though Hawaii Pacific offers several Graduate Programs in conjunction with their sister universities. Graduate degrees available at the University of Hawaii Manoa are Masters of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

University of Hawaii Maui College offers two- and four-year programs in Engineering certification. Completion of the four-year program will result in a Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Technology. Associate Degrees in various fields of science and technology can be accomplished in two years.

In addition, some community colleges offer certification in various areas of engineering. Kaua’i Community College in Lihue offers a Certificate of Completion in Facilities Engineering Technology. This may be completed in one year as a full-time student.

Honolulu Community College presents a Certificate of Achievement in Architectural, Engineering and CAD Technologies each in a one year, full-time program. These programs will prepare the student for a drafting career or to go further into a full-fledged Architectural or other Engineering programs elsewhere.

Online courses are offered at both the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Hawaii Pacific University to supplement other studies and to offer flexible scheduling.

Top Engineering Employers in Hawaii

One of the top engineering companies in Hawaii is R.M. Towell Corporation.
R.M. Towell Corporations has from 50 to 100 employees at its Honolulu location, many of which are civil engineers. R.M. Towell Corporation completed a facilities improvement along Kuhio Beach, a project that won the firm an award.
