Engineering Professor, Mechanical Engineering
Academic Advisor, Management
The College of Engineering has courses of study leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. It also provides curriculum leading to a Master degree. For more information, please see the section on Academics and Admissions.
Mission of the College of Engineering
The College of Engineering at Hawaii On Line University is to provide students with information that will serve as a foundation of their knowledge regarding this area of study. Hawaii On Line University courses focuses on a more hands on approach, using real life examples, simulated strategic projects, and group work. We believe that this experience provides our students with a well rounded base of knowledge while giving the ability to emphasis in various areas of study within this college.

Definition of our Associate Program
Engineers apply scientific and mathematical principles to design, create, and operate useful devices, structures, or processes in an efficient and economical manner. Many branches of engineering exist within this broad definition.
- Electrical Engineering: Electrical engineers deal with the capture and transmission of energy and information (think of fuel cells, solar panels, hydroelectric plants, satellite transmission, TV, mobile devices).
- Mechanical Engineering: Mechanical engineers harness power and mechanical forces to develop all sorts of machines (think of supersonic jets, automobiles, robots, and even artificial organs). They also design and build heating and cooling systems, manufacturing facilities, and machine tools.
- Civil Engineering: Civil engineers design and supervise construction of visible infrastructure items (think of bridges, highways, airports, skyscrapers, or waste-water treatment facilities).
- Systems Engineering: Systems engineers help integrate many different components of a project to see that they work together smoothly and still meet performance, scheduling, and cost goals.
Engineers are employed in every state and city and by every major industry. Some Engineering graduates command good starting salaries after becoming college graduates.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics, part of the U.S. Department of Labor, predicted that by the year 2016 the United States would have needed nearly 400,000 more engineers than we have today. It is important to keep in mind, however, this is not a guarantee for employment.
Hawaii On Line University Pre-Engineering program gives students a solid background in the mathematics, physics, and chemistry and the sciences, needed for any engineering degree.
The Pre-Engineering program at Hawaii On Line University is not a degree program. It is a suggested course of study to prepare students to transfer to a four-year accredited engineering program in Civil, Electrical, Computer Science, Medical, or Mechanical engineering.
Please verify that our program will be is transferable to other four year universities. We do not guarantee that our program will or may be accepted by all or any university.
