HOU (Hawaii On-Line University) Curriculum Suggestion Guide

Some of the courses in an engineering or science curriculum are based on Open Course Ware as suggested by MIT Open Course Ware curriculum. We are not in any way associated with MIT. 

We do not offer nor confer any degrees or accredited courses. We tutor you in the Natural Sciences to help you achieve your educational goals.

Any courses listed here from Open Course Ware that are being offered by MIT are FREE, and are being taught under the Creative Commons Licence granted by MIT.

Once you have completed your courses with MIT or any other Open Course Ware Institution, you will need to submit the passing grade to the university of your choice.


About the Curriculum

Some university degrees are organized into the following schools:

  • School of Engineering
  • School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences
  • School of Science

All together, there are many degree-granting departments, programs, and divisions.

In addition, a great deal of research and education takes place in interdisciplinary programs, laboratories, and centers whose work extends beyond traditional departmental boundaries. Interdisciplinary education programs are offered at both the undergraduate and the graduate levels.

Undergraduate Education

HOU strives to provide students with tutoring services in scientific truth, a strong scientific, technical, and humanistic foundation, and to encourage them to develop creativity in defining problems and seeking solutions.

As an example, for a Bachelor of Science degree, students must complete a core requirement that is equally divided between science and mathematics, and the humanities, arts, and social sciences. The science/mathematics requirement includes chemistry, biology, physics, and calculus, as well as laboratory and science electives. The humanities, arts, and social sciences requirement must be fulfilled by taking one course each in the humanities, arts, and social sciences, along with a three-subject concentration. Students must also complete a four-subject communications requirement.

Most university undergraduate General Institute Requirements include:

  • An eight-subject humanities, arts, and social sciences requirement
  • A six-subject science requirement
    • Two terms of calculus
    • Two terms of physics
    • One term of chemistry
    • One term of biology
  • Two restricted electives in science and technology subjects
  • One laboratory subject


A typical course load is four to five courses each term. Freshmen are subject to a credit limit of no more than five courses.

* Graduate Education

We are NOT in any way associated with the graduate programs of MIT, Massachussetts. However, we suggest a graduate programs after MIT curriculums in order to emulate some of their well understood research and good science, although we do this with a great degree of care so as to not to imitate their false teachings of evolution that may pop up regularly in most of their STEM based classes or programs of engineering.

Since many courses and curriculum follow closely those taught by MIT, we quote from MIT web site:

“Traditionally a leader in engineering graduate education, MIT has also attained national prominence for its doctoral programs in mathematics and the physical and life sciences. In addition, top-ranked graduate programs in economics; political science; linguistics; science, technology, and society; architecture; urban studies and planning; and management have broadened the spectrum of graduate education at MIT.”

* Graduate students of accredited universities may pursue any of the following degrees:

  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
  • Doctor of Science (ScD)
  • Engineer
  • Master of Science (SM)
  • Master of Engineering (MEng)
