Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) Degree in Engineering Technology (ENGT)

The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Engineering Technology (ENGT) provides curriculum in electronics, computers, optics, remote sensing, and other technologies used in industry on Maui, throughout the state of Hawai‘i, and worldwide.

 

ENGT Admission Requirements

For admission to the UH Maui College Engineering Technology BAS program, students must first meet the UH Maui College admission requirements. Admission to UH Maui College does not guarantee admission to the ENGT BAS program.

1. A student may apply for admission as a classified student in the ENGT program upon successful completion of one of the following admission requirements:
a. Completion of the UH Maui College BAS path for the Electronic Engineering Technology (ECET) AS degree (see page 48) with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher in all courses attempted; or
b. Completion of an Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Applied Science (AAS), or Associate in Science (AS) from an accredited institution with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher in all courses attempted, and completion of the BAS path for the Electronic Engineering Technology (ECET) AS degree course requirements (or approved equivalent coursework from an accredited institution).

 

2. A student may apply for admission as a provisional student in the ENGT BAS program upon successful completion of the following admission requirements:
a. Completion of 40 or more transferable semester credits from an accredited institution with a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher in all courses attempted. Classified status will be assigned with completion of the BAS path for the Electronic Engineering Technology (ECET) AS degree course requirements (or approved equivalent coursework from an accredited institution).
b. Approval of ENGT Committee.

ENGT Graduation Requirements

1. BAS path for the Electronic Engineering Technology (ECET) AS degree (74 credits):
Completion of the BAS path for the ECET AS course requirements (or approved equivalent coursework from an accredited institution).
2. Engineering Technology BAS Upper Division Coursework(36 credits):
ETRO 305, 310, 320, 350, 360, 370, 415, 440, 450, 460, and 475
3. Engineering Technology BAS General Education (18 credits):

4. Capstone Course (6 credits):
ETRO 497 and 498 are to be taken the last two semesters with approval of the ENGT Committee.
5. Minimum of 134 qualifying credit hours:
ENGT majors are required to earn a letter grade (e.g., A,B,C, etc.) in all courses required for the ENGT program.
6. Grade Point Average:
At least a 2.0 UH Maui College cumulative GPA, as well as a 2.5 GPA in courses required for the ENGT major. Grade C or better is required in all upper division ENGT courses.
7. Graduation Requirement:
To be awarded the BAS ENGT degree, students must complete an Application for Graduation form obtained from Student Services. See Academic Calendar for deadline.
8. Residency Requirement:
A minimum of 30 credit hours must be taken at UH Maui College and a minimum of 8 upper division courses (24 credits) in Engineering Technology including the ENGT Capstone course.

 

The Engineering Technology (ENGT) program, leading to a baccalaureate degree, offers options to students seeking preparation in engineering technology, electronics, optics, and remote sensing. The mission of the program is to prepare graduates to be productive professionals who can make meaningful contributions to industry on Maui and throughout Hawai‘i and the world. The curriculum emphasizes engineering technology and stresses the effective use of integrated electro-optical hardware and software systems. The program also includes strong interdisciplinary general education with courses in the humanities, social sciences, communication, mathematics, and English.

Although this degree can be earned in four years taking 13-16 credits per semester, students taking fewer credits per semester will take longer to complete the requirements.

Students are required to complete the BAS path for the Electronic Engineering Technology (ECET) AS degree in order to fulfill their lower division requirements. Only courses numbered 100 or above, and taken with a letter grade may be applied to the ENGT degree; for the upper division courses listed here, only those with a grade C or better may be applied.
