Electronic & Computer Engineering Technology (ENGT)

Get hands-on with high tech. UH Maui College’s Engineering Technology program prepares students to work as engineering technologists in industries like telescope operations, high performance computing centers for scientific and engineering applications, energy production and distribution including photovoltaic and wind turbines, and system administration in a variety of sectors. A BAS degree in ENGT can be completed in 4 years* (8 full-time semesters).

DEGREES THAT CAN BE EARNED

Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS)

*Program length depends on student placement and credit load.

The Engineering Technology (ENGT) program, leading to a bachelor 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 grade C or better may be applied.

Contact Dr. Jung Park, at 984-3423 or by email at parkjung@hawaii.edu for more information.

Upon successful completion of the ENGT Program, the student should be able to:

    1. Analyze, design, and implement electro-optic systems, control systems, instrumentation systems, communication systems, computer systems, or power systems.
    2. Apply project management techniques to electrical/electronic(s) and computer systems.
    3. Utilize appropriate mathematics at the level of algebra and trigonometry to solve technical problems.
    4. Demonstrate critical engineering technology skills and experiences such as: making existing technology operate, creating/selecting new technology, troubleshooting, calibrating, characterizing, and optimizing.
    5. Demonstrate engineer’s way of thinking, analyzing technology as systems.
    6. Demonstrate engineer professional skills such as communication and managing projects.
    7. Demonstrate proficiency in the general education college core requirements: creativity, critical thinking, oral and written communication, information retrieval, quantitative reasoning.
    8. Demonstrate a respect for diversity and knowledge of contemporary professional, societal and global issues.
    9. Commit to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
